Well I hate to start off this way but this was a pretty mediocre week for comics for me. I've loved Messiah Complex and I've picked it a lot for the book of the week so i was hoping something else would jump out at me today but New X-men was the best book I read this week hands down.

I've become huge fans of Craig and Kyle and I've mentioned them various times on the podcast, they're done something that I didn't think was possible anymore and that's make a new generation of X-men likable.....very likable. And it was great to see then take on the whole X-universe in this issue

We only have one issue left and there are still twists and turns abound and the main reason that I love this story so much is that is truly feels epic. We still don't know everything about this baby but you can feel how important this event is.

We saw some great battle scenes in this book and there is a great undertone of desperation for this characters that really makes the reader engage in this story and I've been very impressed so far.

I do have some concerns about how this is going to wrap up with only one issue left but the Messiah Complex team has done a great job so far so I'm going to put my trust in them.

And the scene with Rogue and the baby......just who is this kid?
