peteparker's The Uncanny X-Men #540 review

One of the most obtrusive and annoying logos in the history of comics...and yeah, Greg Land...sheesh. Ibraim Roberson get's one Uncanny issue in the entirety of his career and Land get's to trace his way through the closing issues of this volume of Uncanny X-Men.  
 
And yeah, pete. Land can't reference/trace the same person sequentially.   
 
I also hope to God that Fear Itself ends next issue for Uncanny X-Men. Oh and Imperious Rex always has the time to smang it!!! 
  
Got some good news and some bad news...Uncanny will have 4 total Fear Itself tie ins...but hey we'll get two Schism related issues to close things out. Oh wait...I don't like the idea of schism and likely won't be reading it. Well, time to reconsider dropping Uncanny from my pull list all together...

Totally disagree with the Jeff Land take. I could care less about photo referencing if the art is good. I found it to be solid.

The Juggernaut splash page is one of the reasons I like Land. 
 
I really enjoyed the book, much more than the previous few.  
 
But regardless, good review PP.

When Land's not drawing women he can be okay.   Land draws a great looking Juggy, he's also more or less drawn the Default Cyclops of the oughts.   The anti-mutant sentiment in San Francisco has some potential and could pay off if minded properly in future stories. There was some interesting dialog during Cy...
