From the exquisite silliness of the truth about Pogg Ur-Pogg to the absolute, undisputed awesomeness of Storm, this one has it all!

Of particular note is the absolute gorgeousness of Joshua Cassara’s art, which adds gravitas to even the most absurd of the contests included in this issue…whether that be a dance off or an eating contest. It’s fair to say that the tournament central to X Of Swords is not the succession of sword fights that people were expecting, and the event is all the better for it.

It’s also very clear that this is not a fair contest and that Saturnyne is not a neutral referee here. Because of course she’s not. She’s always been a schemer. That said, I’m not sure that the X-Men’s defeat works to her advantage, so there are likely to be some twists yet to come.

All in all this continues to be a great event. Let’s just hope it can stick the landing, eh?
