IMG_8039We 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 once again looking at the next issue in the Uncanny X-Men series in issue number nine which in the order is almost to the end. In the last issue of Uncanny X-Men, Monet discovered that her brother Emplate is behind the plague that is harming the mutants and that is because he has to feed on them to survive. Meanwhile, Psylocke while searching for Eric discovers a familiar foe in Fantomex and she battles him. Unfortunately, he reveals to her that he is working with Eric event though he is there to kill her. In issue #9, Monet sacrifices herself to Emplate just to save the others. We discover that Eric is tied up and out of the picture, but we discover that someone very familiar to Eric and the X-Men is there to stir the pot. Meanwhile, the prophecy comes true before our eyes.

IMG_8041I love what Cullen Bunn has done with Uncanny X-Men because it definitely is one of my favorite series of them all, but I am still trying to figure out how this one ties in with the rest of them. The last issue in the chronological order of the Apocalypse Wars we read sort of guides you in how they are all connected, but this one is still going in a certain direction and I’m trying to tie it all together. I definitely enjoy where the story is going with Monet and her brother Emplate, I think that is an interesting twist for the story itself. The artwork in this one is awesome, I love the animation, and it fits the mood of the story. I was enjoying the artwork with Psylocke (I still am), but the Emplate angle is a really good one as well. 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:

Artwork: A+
