I seriously loved this stuff. The reason why is right there on the cover: Nightcrawler. My favorite character in comics, and one of my favorite fictional characters. If he's written in character, I'll pretty much like anything he's in. And so, not at all objective review here. I like this entire cast of characters, to be honest. In retrospect, it's tough to read Kurt and Kitty's very real grief at the apparent deaths of the X-Men, knowing that they're very much not at all dead and just hadn't told them yet.
