Still has crappy art and a Willy Wonka-type story. I'll pass and continue to pretend it doesn't exist.

Nice.

I'm tired of this homage cover but the good thing is that we are back to the future storytelling for the school of Aaron which has been really awesome so far.

awwwww, i was a little disapointed that Quires picture didn't have the word "expelled?" written over it :P Have been loving this series since issue 1 and will be picking up the first issue of the next run in a few months time :)

those are some weird looking bamfs. well with the phoenix storyline coming up i know quintin is sticking around, maybe graduating into a full fledge x-man. eye guy, broo and idie are fan favorites and mainstays so if anyone is to leave will be the lesser used characters but do see why they cant stay when characters that should have graduated years ago are still around and some of these students have only been around for a yea or so

Love the cover! And YAY! Future Quentin!!

We need more of this...We need a Quentin Quire/ Loki Team up... we need a whole damn series of Loki and Quentin pissing off the Marvel Universe...

As long as they have Kid Gladiator, I'm in

This looks great! W&tX has been great again lately. I still don't like the stupid renumbering.

#30 Edited by ArturoCalaKayVee (11996 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think they're going to graduate considering we've already seen a preview for issue 1 but I was really hoping this cast would graduate to full X-Men and either be lead by Wolverine or Storm. Oh well. I'll still pick this up.

Edit: There should be a section of DOFP homage covers because I'm pretty sure that number is hitting like 100.

I really grew to love the characters. Quentin Quire, Broo, Doop, Kid Apocalypse - these are the reasons I will continue to read after Jason Aaron leaves and the series gets relaunched.

@frozenedge: Im cool with that, it hasn't been phenomenal in my opinion i have liked uncanny and all-new alot better
