Before I start, I just have one question: Why the hell didn't I pick up this series sooner?! For my first experience with Joss Whedon's writing, I really enjoyed this issue. I'm not terribly sure what to think of Emma's involvement with Cassandra Nova, considering "Here Comes Tomorrow" is the only story I've read with her as a character. The scene with Wolverine and the students in the "new" Danger Room was awesome. The minute the lights went out, I was in hysterics. It's good to see that Shadowcat and Colossus are getting closer since he came back. And the end of the issue was priceless. The idea of Cyclops paying bills made me laugh because the idea of superheroes (especially the X-Men) paying bills is something one just doesn't think about. And Emma wearing his "favorite outfit"? (that's all I have to say) I also picked up Astonishing X-Men Saga (one of the reasons I decided to get #13). It was a nice primer for the series and covered 12 issues surprisingly well, even if it did remind me of a children's picture book.
