THE SECRET LIFE OF EVA BELL - Part 1

• Part one of the epic two-part tale of the time-manipulating mutant Eva Bell's greatest secret.

I haven't liked an issue of this run so far and happen to think it's one of the worst X-Men series in recent history. But with Sorrentino on art there is a 100% chance I'll be buying this.

I love Andrea Sorrentino's art so freakin' much. Great to see him doing something else after the end of his run with Lemire on GREEN ARROW. I'd love to see him do some other Marvel characters as well.

I've been loving this series, it's probably my favorite X-men book in years.

And I've been really looking forward to this story.. and the art does look sweet. Maybe he'll do some of the regular issues, that'd be pretty cool..

While I had a mild interest as to what happened to Eva, the fact that Sorrentino is doing art on these two annuals makes it my most anticipated Marvel book of the month. Cannot wait.

@g_man I miss read the title.... I was like when the hell did they decide to renumber Uncanny X-Men again? Andrea Sorrentino need's to move over to Image Comics. He just needs to find the right project he wants to work on.........

Agreed. It's the only reason I'm buying the two annuals at all.

Of course one of (if not my most) my favorite artists would get paired with one of my least favorite writers. -_-

Art is not too bad, I am very not ok with Bendis, but I'll stick it out to see what happens to Eva.

Nice art and love the cover. She must be a new mutant, because I don't recognize her.

I've never understood the Bendis hate. Love both his X-Men series right now and Sorrentino just makes the annual that much better.

Wait, I thought Eva was already somewhere in her 20s when she first appeared.

@lazz33: Agreed, both this and All New X-Men have been good. I feel like its almost trendy to hate Bendis now.

Finally!!!

I've been needing my Sorrentino fix. Hopefully after this we'll find out what book he'll land on next.

Ok, so It's official...it is me, I think I am just a outdated dinosaur when it comes to liking certain artist and styles. Not a huge fan of Sorrentino's style, to the point I avoid books as a result.

So I am conflicted on this, Dislike Bendis, and Sorrentio..but I do like Eva and think she was one of the bright spots from the new X-men group. Money talks however and may have to skip this one until another time
