I was a little worried about this book once I heard Kieron Gillen was leaving, and even considered dropping it with #12, but I picked this one up to give new writer James Asmus a chance, and I’m glad I did because this issue was really good. Asmus has a good handle on all of the various characters, and does a good job of continuing what Gillen was doing, whilst also giving it a bit more humour, such as the scenes between Teon and the Stepford Cuckoos and Kenji’s falling in love with Martha Johannson, the brain floating in a jar. That was just a great moment, and it really lived up to the kind of weirdness Grant Morrison proved could be done in mutant books. The artwork from Ibraim Roberson was really good, it reminded me of Ariel Olivetti before he got too crazy with the computer and started using Unreal Tournament levels as backgrounds. Oh yeah, and most of the team got blown up by a suicide bomber on the last page, I should have mentioned that.

I like this book and yet, after every issue, all I can think about is how much more I'd like this book if it starred characters who I actually cared about ... I mean, I think you could throw a rock and hit 20 X-characters more interesting than the most interesting Gen Hope character.

I had no idea this book was still being published. I thought it was a five issue mini.

The first issue of it stunk.

well pixie is in it now and she's at least somewhat interesting.. its telling when they took the most interesting character from this book and took her all the way across the country with Wolverine.

Yep. Idie was pretty much the only character I felt would have any sort of shelf life away from this book ... and lo and behold, they took her away from this book. :lol:

suffice to say this group of kids doesn't hold a candle to the last 'generation' in New X-Men
