I don’t think I’ve picked up an issue of Adjectiveless X-Men since the second or third story arc, but thought the cover looked promising, and thought “Well, at least it won’t be about vampires anymore.”

Seriously? We’re still on the Jubilee as a vampire storyline?

This book isn’t terrible. I understand why it would be popular with people who really like familiar seeming super hero books. But, at the end of the day, it just reminds me of all the better X-books I’ve read over the year.

Jubilee has been a teenager since roughly the dawn of time. Even before she turned undead, she seemed to have stopped aging at seventeen or so (she’s referred to several times in this issue as a teenage vampire), while all of her Generation X teammates are now in their twenties.

That’s not really Gischler’s fault, but it’s something that I tripped over as I read this issue.

Molina and Espin’s art is serviceably good, and I do love the way the pages are laid out but there are a few panels where Storm looks like she has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 3 - Good
