I was just hoping that for once Jude wouldn't do what you guys were predicting.
Punchy will give it a low score, I wont buy it and we know whenever old man returns he'll lower the core too.
I mean I hate to sound like an asshole but how does he think this will be any different then about a month back.
The last week we did X-Men forever, it was that Cyclops story that, while enjoyable, didn't represent how awesome XMF has been, particularly in recent weeks. Just read the last few issues to see how fucking awesome Sabretooth has been written, his relationship with Daisy Dugan, or the Storm issue (issue 15) to see that this book has some really awesome things going on. Claremont has been saddled with revolving artists which kinda hurts the book (though what are you gonna do, it's bi-weekly and it's rare an artist can keep up with that). This book has Takeda on it, and it looks very good. And as an annual, and form talking to Chris a few weeks ago about it (to be published tomorrow), it's a great jumping on point, being about the nature of the series but not directly part of the ongoing plot. I flirted with picking something else, but I want people to give this book a chance.
