A very well-done coda to the insanity that was this book’s Fear Itself tie-in, and whilst I’m sure that Veil will still be a presence in the book, it really does feel like the end of an era. It’s great that this book is willing to risk a change and mix things up, and I’m very much looking forward to all of the other teen characters like X-23 and the Runaways showing up, it’s also sad to see the band break up. I did like that Gage brought Jeremy Briggs from #13.1 back into the book, he was a really interesting character and I like anything that tries to move superhero comics beyond the ‘good guy/bad guy’ dichotomy, he’s a post-modern villain. It’s also cool that Gage is sending Speedball and Justice off on a road trip, can a New Warriors revival be far behind? I’m sure it will be, and then be cancelled after 5 issues.

i liked this issue. I read the letters page, and Gage pretty much said Veil will still be around.

As far as a New Warriors book, maybe McKeever can take it on, use Speedball and Justice, Firestar and Gravity, and maybe Cloud 9

End of an era? Its not even been 2 years worth of issues. I'd say Era is at least 5 years. But yea it does suck that she might be leaving the team for a while.

Awesome issue. I was proud of Robbie and a little surprised at Vance, but can't wait to see if anything comes out of that. Veil will be back. Looking forward to seeing Julie Power in the book. Its about time the other members of PP started to get some attention besides Alex.

I think it'll be interesting to see X-23 in there with Juston and his Sentinel.
