The end of a truly great run at a property I walked away from a long time ago. Whedon's strengths are in full force: compelling characters, realistic interactions, and fantastic and even witty dialog. Ok, so maybe the end is a bit of a mess. Nobody's perfect. But for the X-Men, this is remarkably close. Cassaday's art remains top-notch.
One very silly complaint: I did feel sort of ripped off that Nightcrawler appeared on the cover of the last issue in the trade, but only actually showed up in a few panels with a couple of lines. Got me all excited for nothing.
