I was less than impressed with issue 1, but this one may have won me over. The idea of the school being built on Krakoa is awesome, and Aaron's handling of Hank, Kitty, and especially Bobby hit all the right notes for me. I may be back on a regular X-book for the first time in about 5 years.

Isn't it supposed to be in space? How do they accidentally build a mansion ontop of it??

Another issue of balls-to-the-walls insanity from Wolverine and his gang. I love how much stuff Aaron is managing to cram into this book, there’s Frankensteins and Krakoa and Wendigos and Saurons and Iceman kicking ass (I wonder if Wolverine was inspired by fighting that evil Iceman over in Uncanny X-Force? He was doing stuff like that) and the continued development of cool new characters like Broo and Kid Gladiator. This book didn’t let up for a second and it was highly enjoyable to say the least. Bachalo’s art was the perfect fit for Aaron’s madness, and basically, this is turning out to be one of the best X-Men runs in ages. I even liked the return of the Claremontian soap-opera elements such as when Bobby kissed Kitty, I can’t imagine how much that enraged/aroused the CBR X-Boards, which although the worst place on the internet, is genuinely fascinating in how insane those posters are about every minor X-character.
