This is how crossovers should look. One voice telling one story. Here, the past comes back to haunt the past version of Jean Grey and it effects so many. There was so much to love here. Jean coming to grips with a possible future, Scott dealing with all the emotions, Kitty and Peter flirting, Rocket being Rocket, plus so much more. The art, by everyone, was amazing. The Shi'ar have always been in the X-Men's lives and this story makes so much sense and Bendis handles it perfectly. Loved it!
Funny, entertaining and everything positive about it!
I have been enjoying both the Guardians of the Galaxy and All New X-Men titles. The crossover was a nice, fun adventure with both casts and it was nice to see the Star Lord and Kitty Pryde dynamic form. Fantastic writing and great artwork all around. I have been a fan of Brian Michael Bendis for years and absolutely love David Marquez's and Stuart Immonen's artwork.
This is one awesome storyline. The Guardians and the X-Men join forces that is truly amazing.
