    Sorry - I missed this comment somehow!

    It is indeed quite the achievement, and I did a little bit of digging into some other X-Books released in the early 2000s also. Cable and Deadpool, which was...

    Wasn't going to pick this up as the first two issues didn't do it for me, but picked it up today as I'm a fan of Valentine De Landro, particularly his previous X-work in the 2000s with PAD.

    Angel in this book looked almost as young as he did in that issue of Uncanny where Chuck Austen forgot Skin's name and mutants couldn't get AIDS.

    This was better than issue one but that's a low...

    Jeezo. This takes me back.

    I've enjoyed this book, and the issue was fine but I'm glad this storyline is over. Hoping for something that doesnt involve telepathy in the next storyline.
