Wolverine and the X-Men #10

So 10 issues into this series and finally Cyclops stops by for a visit.

And that's about the most exciting thing that happens in this issue of Wolverine and the X-Men.

It's the ongoing problem with any event series - the issues that involve the main characters have to somehow mark time while the actual story is rolling out in the main title.

That's why this issue takes place between issues of Avengers vs. X-Men, as Cyclops tries one more time to bring Wolverine - or some of his X-Students - over to his side of the battle.

Other than an increasingly strange side story about the Angel (who has apparently had his mind wiped clean), that's all we see in this comic.

There's some clever dialogue by writer Jason Aaron, and the usual art by Chris Bachalo (and four inkers) - some panels are amazing, and a few are incomprehensible.

I can't recommend this one - it's just marking time while things actually happen in AvX.

For completists only.

Grade: B-
