LOVE LOVE LOVE this book.
Seriously though. Sage + Dazzler + Gay Wolverine + Xavier head in a jar + All these fun versions of Danger = One extremely fun book.
I was initially very sceptical about this book and thought it had a ridiculous premise. It's still ridiculous, but in all the right and awesome ways. So glad I gave this a chance.
It's refreshing to see interesting ideas of contemporary sci-fi being used to portray an advanced machine civilisation, such as routine backups of individuals and uploading of human minds. Most importantly, the issue remembered to point out that there's no fundamental difference between a biological and an electronic mind - they're both people.
It gets my geeky seal of approval.
i literally bought this and reacted like a 15 year old girl at a Beatles concert circa 1965. just flipping shit all over the place. Thank you Pak and co. You guys have mad created a generation of stronger x-fans here on cbr. : )
I love this book... but the art in the past two issues has not been good at all, in my opinion. Is that the new series regular artist?
Edit: Just realized that the issues had Valdes doing fill-in work, and those were the pages/panels I disliked. IGN summed it up best for my opinion: "Picture X-Men by way of Aeon Flux and you'll know what to expect. That sort of design sensibility suits the current setting well, but the angular, distorted, and sometimes sexually androgynous figures don't."
Edit 2: Also just realized that I've been very negative about art recently. Oops. Regardless, love Dazzler, love Sage, love what Pak is doing, even if the art is sometimes not my cup of tea!

My favourite artist so far is Paco Diaz. He draws a beautiful Dazzler.
