New X-Men #37

New X-Men #37
I really like the new Manga feel to this book. Skottie Young is extremely talented. Last month he did the cover to Cable & Deadpool in a Sinkiewicz style, and now, this! And the storybook pages by Niko Henrichon are beautiful. They give the complete history of Magik - both of them - in a matter of fourteen pages. And manage to condense Claremont's AWFUL Black Sun miniseries into something comprehensible in two of those. I also like the inclusion of more characters than just Julian's team.
But does Craig Kyle's ego really need the "X-23 Created by" credit on even the issues she doesn't appear in?
VERY GOOD. I'm hoping for more of the same next month.
