    Awesome, I think Emma dialog didn't feel right with Phil's pencils but with Karee's art everything makes sense.
    I do have one criticism now that I think about it and it's something you probably don't have anything to do with, it's the cover design.
    The art it's awesome but it's looks like whoever did the design have no idea what to do with it, it's gives me the impression, they
    didn't pay much attention to it. But it's something that most Marvel books suffer from. Hopefully the Absolute Edition will look great.

    I haven't even seen the cover design...

    (Bear in mind, this isn't even a book I'm staying on, it's just a short visit.)

    @ Warren, oh I would speak my mind if I didn't like something, but honestly, Xenogenesis now has a very special place in my heart because Kaare capture the original spin of her being an X-Men as was envisioned by Grant Morrison, while you supply the script. As you said, Kaare's artistic vision totally sells the book! Good GAWD!!! She's utterly fantastic in issue 2 with her little sex/orgasm telepath trick on those poor boy soldiers.

    Henry looks great, and Hisako is a spit fire!

    Good times, good times.

    Yeah, like other people have mentioned, some of the art isn't exactly my preference--which is odd, because I did really like Andrew's Spider-Man: Reign from a few years back. I don't know if the coloring is affecting things (it is a lot brighter palate here when compared to Reign), or the fact that he's dealing with more modern-day characters, whereas Reign either dealt with new characters or classics obviously changed by age, but more specifically the first issue took some getting used to. I think the second issue had a lot less "problems" than this.

    It's kinda in the same place as Chew, for me--the art style isn't necessarily what I gravitate towards in comics, but the story is so strong that I can get past it.

    What an awesome book. I'm enjoying it quite a bit -- you're the second writer that made X-Men enjoyable for me.

    Best moment - close-up of Beast's eyes upon initially seeing the babies - brilliant.

    @ Mhengla- I know! It's just one of those little moments that get over looked, but actually define the characters. Dead babies don't sit well with Henry, I imagine this is going to get personal for Henry as well. So I hope a good show from Ororo and Henry...and more of Emma's sex-libido-shenanigans.

    I work in a comic shop, and I have been ranting at people about the inclusion of Doc Croc and warpies for the last week and a half. I love the old Captain Britain issues with the warpies, and the fact that you can barely ever find them in the States is a constant source of consternation to me.

    @ adg3825- if it helps, know that we yanks have no taste at all. I blame it on the FCC killing the LSD inspired children television programs.

    Kaare Andrew;s Best AXM cover for Xenogenesis

    Instant win, from the first time I saw it, and as I said, best cover from Xenogenesis.

    I hope they don't ruin it with the titles...

    Emma Frost is an utter show stealer and her de-pantsing the soldiers was priceless.

    The revelation about the possible nature of the mutations makes me wonder if the X-Men are only interested in X-gene mutations and other mutations resulting from mundane radiation or chemical exposure are not their concern.

    Kaare Andrews' art doesn't do much for me, but I like that his visual sex jokes (or were they all Ellis' ideas) bring a nice bit of risque humor to a grim storyline.
