That's how I felt a bit. A second read through showed me that while a lot of the character interaction was fun many of the events like the cure and Breakworld were kind of inconsequential. And the X-Men taking on more public enemies was something I wanted to see them try more of but that theme lasted all of what, three issues?
And didn't Kitty's "departure" actually get spoiled in another story due to those delays?
And hey, what gives? Cassaday's work on Uncanny Avengers is just fine, the writing is just a bit slow. Though I must say I'm enjoying the book. I have mixed feelings about Cassaday being taken off.
Edit-- Thanks for the info about Emma. I'll have to check that out.
I don't remember Kitty's departure being spoiled due to the delays. I remember there were major arguments over at SuperHeroHype over who was dying (I was at hype at that time, under a different name... that's where I know DarthCyclopz from actually)

what's killing cassaday for me is his lazy work with proportioms and action scenes. They,re just awkward. Last issue was full of rogue action yet it was so stilted. And the colors are not working with the style.
The kitty thing was partially spoiled because messiah complex ran before astonishing ended and she was missing and not mentioned. It was clear she was gone
Currently training my Wanda to be at level 8, and Soon Jean will follow suit.
Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have Emma. By then I hope my Agent level will be above 20 as I'm currently at 19
I really love Cassaday's art. Emma (and almost everyone) under his pen was by no means "pretty" (sexy body aside, her face was constructed in a more masculine way) but sometimes one expression on her face overshadowed all dialogue. The same goes for Quitely's. That's why I love the cover of NXM #116… the insolence on her face was priceless.
In dog days, all we need is Frost.
It was spoiled in Messiah Complex and Brubakers Divided We Stand Uncanny X-Men issue where Colossus, Wolverine and Nightcrawler go drinking.
Just got Emma and her P5 out fit... and with my MK maxed out I'm thinking of sending her out on some 24hr missions for 50xp.
I'm now in the vibranium league and with 40Cp I'm thinking of recruiting Kitty.
