timrothsays's The Uncanny X-Men #520 - Nation-X: Chapter 6 review

Uncanny X-Men #520

Whoa... I've never been a huge Fraction's Uncanny X-Men fan. Thou, there were some horrible issues. But this... This turned my comic world upside down. 
 
I am fully convinced that Terry Dodson's artwork is more suitable for Matt's storytelling. Just look at the cover. But, surprisely, this month Land jumped over his head (obviously affected a break in two issues). Sharp, thin lines, expressive faces (although, I'm not a fan of his "photographic" style) - all of it makes an unique charm, floaty appeal to the art. Trust me - haters gonna grit their teeth. 
 
And I can forgive nearly everything for a "new" Magneto. His plan looks, reads and perceives barely gorgeous. Likewise not paying attention to some surprising guest from the Morrison's X-age. I actually LOVE Fantomex with his first appereances in New X-Men #128 and always thought it was unfair that writers have forgotten him. I'm very grateful to Jason Aaron and Matt Fraction for bringing Charlie back to comics.
 
So, i would never began writing this review, but # 520 struck me very deeply and made me not to throw the series. Also, now it is purely clear HOW Kitty Pryde will come back to Marvel-U. Still too much unrequired pathos & tinsel, i think...

You know even with out the hole Kitty Pride returning, I would have still read the issue because I want to know what happens to Cyclops. Even so who doesn't like a bonus. Another great review, they are becoming a habit.

I was asking you if the grandson of Barnell Bohusk (Beak) was in that comic book series. As for Beast,didn't he became possessed by Sublime?
