    Mike Allred can do no wrong in my eyes. He's one of those artists who instantly elevate the story they're working on.

    Looking forward to seeing "which" Milligan is writing, he unfortunately swings from mediocre to amazing depending on the project although on X-Statix he's always been superb in my opinion.

    Sister? Not daughter? Good, I'm glad that theory was wrong, the timeline wouldn't have added up.

    I can almost feel your happiness Hush, hopefully is as good as you remember .

    As for me, Milligan's X-Force/X-Statix is still in the reading pile.

    It's not a theory, Katie is U-Go-Girl's daughter as confirmed during X-Force #124, it's just that Edie never told her daughter the truth:







    That's why she still believe that Eddie is her sister, Katie being Edie's daughter was also confirmed by Milligan when this one shot was announced:

    "Suffice to say it’s enough to have Edie Sawyer not just turning into her grave but crawling out of her grave and warning her daughter, Katie."

    "Of course, there can never be another U-Go Girl. But the young woman who could potentially take Edie Sawyer’s place as X-Statix’s teleporter is her daughter, Katie. When we first meet Katie she is a normal high school kid - normal, except that her mom was once in a superhero team. Normal except she wakes up in the middle of the night and finds herself in a graveyard, being spoken to by Dead Girl. Katie represents everyone who tried to escape from her past, only to see that past catching her up in the rearview mirror."

    Ah so true, I can't wait for this one shot!!! You really should give the original serie a try, it's amazing!

    X-Force/X-Statix is one of the best Xmen books ever, I wish it had never ended, or at least not all characters had died in the last issue.
    My faves were Dead Girl, Vivisector (the best gay mutant character, much better than Iceman for sure), the Anarchist and U Go Girl.
    I am getting this for sure.

    My body is ready. Didn't realise this was so soon. It would probably gain more traction being released after HOX/POX, but maybe this is a primer for a relaunch.

    Well, I've been looking forward to this since the comic was announced. I'm honestly more excited about X-Statix returning than I am for the Hickman X-Men to begin. Hope that we get a monthly series after this.

    Anyone else read/enjoy this?

    Gotta say, as good as the issue was, I'm even more excited for what we've apparently got coming next.

    I did and i can only use one weird to describe this, a word that predates my own birth. "groovy." This was just a very groovy book to me. I felt mad chill and in a sweet spot while reading it.

    Finished reading this.

    Very enjoyable, reminded me of how fresh and different this was when it came out in 2001. Felt like a real shot in the arm and has me looking forward to seeing what Milligan and Allred have for next year. A step in the right direction, albeit a small, kooky, far-removed-from-the-main-thrust-of-things step.

    Good dialogue, great art. Plot was a little formulaic, but as a set-up issue goes it ticked all my boxes.
