    I feel this issue is to bring attraction to the New Mutants movie which also starred Lockheed as Magik's pet.

    This issue is obviously a tribute to Alan Davis art .

    Give it a leeway wind of about 3 or so pages so somewhere between 4 and 8.


    edit: And that's not even me Claremounting it.
    Well... I’d buy it. I assume there would be a caption in the last page that’s Kurt’s thought process basically saying they’ll leave the mansion to the Sidri for now.

    this was fun enough. Davis gave us a couple of stellar pages, the one where "Rachel" is reminiscing and the page practically melts into flame is so so gorgeous.

    I wish we got more answers in regards to the Warlock stuff. Its eating me alive.

    I agree this was basically Giant-Sized Cypher but im not mad about it tbh, Cypher doesn't sell books the same way as Kurt. Hickman obvs has stuff in store for Kurt anyways considering X-Men #7

    Regan showing up was cool, a bit of an "....ok. neat." moment. I wonder if this is foreshadowing an important role for her moving forward...or of they just threw her in because they needed to explain the weirdness lol.

    I'm interested in the implications of the Sidri staying on the estate. not super invested but it could be a fun story.

    All my thoughts about this book feel very non-committal to me as im writing them. make of that as you will lol

    I know you're half-joking but this is a REALLY good catch. theres something here...what are the chances two artists with completely different styles just happened to match each other's motifs..

    Well he's technically a mutant Technarch, so that might suffice. But it's not like Krakoa doesn't know he exists as he's having tea time with Doug and K on the regular. I think he's likely hiding because of all the nonsense that happened under Rosenbergs pen (ie infecting his friends) and is ashamed by it. Hence he's just sticking to Doug's arm.

    Nightcrawler got robber in this. For an issue dedicated just to him, they didn't do justice. He didnt stand out at all.

    Might also have something to do with the Phalanx I'm sure there's a reason why Doug infected Krakoa the moment he got there.

    To be fair, Hickman did state in AIPT's X-Men Monday that some of the Giant Size issues didn't just focus on the title character, but a team...

    As Jordan has beat us over the head with and said repeatedly, Hickman doesn't "just do things". That's twice a mutant has emerged from an egg in books he wrote, outside of the resurrections.

    If Erik is making an omelette in GS Magneto, I swear...
    Boop! Krakoa forever!

    Eggs have been in every book it seems. King egg, reincarnation eggs, the GS eggs, etc.

    I did not like this issue. Wasnt a huge fan of the last either. Looking forward to Magneto tho. They can't mess up my king.

    Also have to question why Kurt was even there since he contributed the least to the plot.
