All-New X-Men #30

   See, now, this is how you do a "let's take a breath and regroup" kinda issue.

   Writer Brian Michael Bendis is justly famous for his "let's talk it out" issues, and that's what All-New X-Men is all about this time around.

   It's fun, it's lighthearted, we get some insights into the characters, and it brings the focus on several different relationships.

   We see what the (young) Angel and X-23 are up to in a clever bit of business that allows artist Sara Pichelli to show her strengths.

   We catch a confrontation between (the young) Jean Grey and the (mature) Emma Frost in a psychic training session like no other.

   And Kitty Pryde is dating a hologram? Or is it Star-Lord?

   The issue is a bit off-beat - but mighty entertaining!

Grade: A-
