IMG_8025We are soldiering on here at 365 Comics in 365 Days with our Marvel X-Men event of the year with the X-Men Apocalypse Wars that crosses Uncanny X-Men, Extraordinary X-Men, and All-New X-Men. For today, we are looking at the next issue in the Uncanny X-men series in issue number eight. In the last issue Callisto brings Sabertooth and Monet down to the problem that is at hand and its the fact that the mutants have changed, but in a very bad way as they begin to attack. Meanwhile, Eric and Psylocke go in and they watch a sermon from Warren, but they decide to investigate what in the world is going on with him and they discover Genocide, the son of Apocalypse. In this issue, Monet figures out what is wrong with the mutants and they have may a tie with someone very close to her. Meanwhile, Eric is now missing and Psylocke is trying to find him when she discovers a familiar foe and he may reveal some serious stuff to her.

IMG_8027At first I was thinking, but now I know that I am believing that Uncanny X-Men does have the better writers because the story keeps getting better and better as we go along. While I am still trying to figure out the ties, I am letting it go because I just want to read more and more of it. Plus, the story with Monet and Sabertooth is getting interesting too. The artwork in this one is awesome, I love the animation, and it fits the mood of the story. I especially love the artwork that is associated with Psylocke because they get interesting when she is around although the artwork with M and Sabertooth is catching up now. The panels are easy to read and follow so you shouldn’t have a hard time with it. As I have said many times before, I have always been a fan of Uncanny X-Men over most of the others so check it out for yourselves and while you’re at it, check out my grades below:


Story/Plot: A+

Artwork: A+

Character Representation: A+

Entertainment Value: A+
