end of an arc / comeback in progress

im pretty sure this leads into X-Infernus - but theres no mention of it here (negative a half star).. otherwise a great issue, and a very trim conclusion. 2 students not pulled into Limbo, have finally made it into the fray and chalk up some haevy hits right away. also to the rescue, is Darkchild. not undue any credit is Pixie, who provided the new portal with a little training in dark arts. so everyones in the same place since the arc began. now they just need to make it back to the real world. everything wraps up kinda quickly, or im finding it challenging to read through Skottie Young's kinetic style at anything but a rapid pace. its worth reading over again though - so no worries. theres a very slight family reunion of sorts that reads very broadly. theres a followup in Nation X #1 too (i think, not sure). Endangered Species Chapter 8 manages to feature (video-fed) flashbacks in its mere eight pages. plus some vintage S.H.E.I.L.D. tach makes an appearance!

No other X-Title has enjoyed the consistent quality for as long as the New X-Men has. The worst issues of New X-Men are still worth picking up, and that can't be said about all comic books. I say this at a time that almost all X-Men comic books are actually good right now, but that's because all the writers have been on the book for over a year. Yost and Kyle ha...
