My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This issue was very much one of moving several plot points along and not much more, and as such it’s kinda’ hard to get overly excited about it. That’s one of the downsides to most comics being written for their trade paperback collections. Issues like this one work perfectly when collected, but when they have to stand alone…not so much.

It’s certainly not bad though! And the fight between Storm and Callisto, which is this issue’s “big event” is well done, calling back to their previous fight for the leadership of the Morlocks.

I find myself more interested in the political machinations of Emma Frost, though, and would have preferred more of that here. We see the preparations for the upcoming Hellfire Gala proceed, and I’m left wondering if that event will take place in the pages of Marauders or X-men, considering that it will include the revelation of the new X-Men team. Perhaps it’ll be both.

So, yeah, a perfectly good comic, but one that really just leaves me wanting them to get on with it…
