Equal commendation should go to the artwork in this issue. Characters and scenes are powerful, expressive, and evoke a certain emotion that I think readers will find satisfying. Special shout-outs go to the panels showing Havok and Scarlet Witch getting busy with their powers. There's just something quite satisfying about seeing a couple of mutants let 'er rip.
All in all, I think there may well be two kinds of opinions when it comes to this issue and this series. Some readers, like myself, will absolutely love the narrative style. It's a throwback to what Stan Lee and Jack Kirby started with way back when. I have enjoyed and still enjoy those old-school comics and have come to greatly appreciation that particular type of story-telling. On the other hand, some more "modern" readers may find fault in the narration style. The only real advice I can offer is to take a step back and use your imagination for once. You're missing out on a great adventure otherwise.
