One Will Die...

 So this is the big death issue!  I will do my best to not spoil it for anyone, but I will say this:  it's a great scene.

This book has some awesome art and inking.  It's probably the best that we've seen so far in Second Coming.  The colors pop off the page in places, and the characters are drawn amazingly.

Picking up from part 04, the X teams are spread out trying to get Hope back to Utopia.  The book starts with Bastion saying it's time for him to go out and fight.  Wolverine's team and Cable are fighting off a group of soldiers while the New Mutants are trying to make it back to Utopia with a badly injured team member.  Meanwhile, Hope, Rogue and Nightcrawler are trying to make it back to Utopia.  All of a sudden, communications die, and Bastion overtakes Hope's small team.  What will happen?!

I've loved Second Coming so far, and it continues the pulse-pounding pace through this issue.  An absolute must read for all X fans.

    Finally some goosebumps from a comic. 0

     They had been preparing us for this one. Everyone speculated and made assumptions, but let me tell you, it's nothing till you read it.   The Good: About the death, it was spectacular, i was worried that it would be forced, but it was superbly written and drawn, emotional, shocking and beautiful. There was this really good scene, when a part of the team finds out about the death, that was brilliantly drawn. Aside from the death the issue was good, I enjoyed specially seeing Bastion finall...
