   Excalibur #13 - Chapter 9 - Ugh.  I can't stand this book with Betsy as Captain Britain.  It's a shame this event seems to focus so much on the characters from this time in the X-Men's past.  I want Betsy back as Psylocke, plain and simple.  At least we got two swords out of this book so we can move along.

   X-Men #13 - Chapter 10 - I was starting to get lost in all the detail in this book but Hickman pulled it together for me by the end.  This book I liked.

Juggernaut #2 - Battle with the Hulk = Like.  Sappy guilt trip laid on Juggernaut = been there, done that.  Now that MU is going to three months I'm going to wait on the last three issues of this mini and get them there.

Empyre #1 - Hmmmm.  Not as bad as I thought it would be.  Actually off to a good start.

Empyre: Fantastic Four - Oops.  I read this out of order.  This comes BEFORE Empyre #1.  But it was a nice little one shot Fantastic Four story.  I enjoyed it for what it was.

Fantastic Four #21 - Empyre Tie-In - Started out pretty cool with the origin of the Kree and Skrull kids from the above one shot.  Then went downhill fast.  Ugh.  The writing in this book has not improved.

Batman #101
Excalibur #13... Sorry, Jeff, I really like this team. Although Captain Avalon is a lame name.
Justice League #55
Spider Woman #5
Teen Titans #46... really surprised this hasn't been cancelled yet.

As much as I despise Damian as a Robin and a character, he carried the team.  Not shocked about the Squad. When the first issue starts with a bunch of newbies, it won't last a year.

Im glad you like it!  Im sure my ire comes from my love of Psylocke and my disappointment that shes Captain Britain instead of Brian.  A lot of my favorite characters are on this team (Rogue, Gambit, and Jubilee) so Im sure my expectations are too high.

But it wasn't JUST new guys, and
a good many of those were killed in the first issue anyway
  Cheesy Cheesy But yeah, a lot of people see that list and decide not to try it. You're right. Sad as even with the new peeps, I think it was one of DC's best written books ... and the art was/is good too  Smiley
