Yeah, Uncanny X-Men has kind of just been getting better. Other than the two crossover issues, the last bunch of issues have been 8's or 9's for me.

Though I am enjoying Amazing X-Men, I do think this issue felt a little light compared to the first two, and like you say, largely largely coasted on the satisfaction of seeing Nightcrawler reunited with Storm. 6.5 seems fair (but I'd probably give it 7 myself).

I have been loving Uncanny after the Morph Issue. Around the same time, I started to dislike All New X-men. My likeliness switched for those two X-Men comics.

I was liking both until the crossover, but I've liked Uncanny' even more since, whereas All-new' just doesn't interest me anymore. I saw it coming, but I still enjoyed the first 15 issues.

Hell yeah, Ghosted. Loved the first arc and then this most recent issue just raised the bar even higher. Same with Harbinger. I'll have to check out Voices in the Dark, hopefully it ends better than Dexter.

So true about the latest Uncanny X-Men making me look even more forward to Magneto's new ongoing.

SO how are you liking Magento? Issue 1 was great IMO, and I just read issue 2. Awesome.

Finished reading both today and wow. I think my mouth was hanging open in surprise the entire time, lol. Let me first say that I agree, both issues were fantastic -- Magneto is tremendous as he should be. I kinda feel a little put off by his coldness but then again, the moment with the cleaning woman balanced it out somewhat. I love how we are getting to experience the inner workings of him and his intentions. It's like - Go get'em, Magneto!

I do have one complaint and it's how he's drawn. This bulldog physique with the wide jaw, etc, doesn't look familiar although the interior splash page of him in the police station was gorgeous. The artist does cater to the classic Magneto look when in costume so maybe this new look is intentional so as to separate the two?

Either way, I am in and I hope this book continues to do well. My fan-girl tears over how Wolverine is being portrayed currently have been stemmed a bit with this new Magneto. Marvel is starting to make me happy again.
