    Not a fan of Warren being written like the hippie here. His writing is very inconsistent

    So far the weakest art. Not bad but a step down from issues 1 and 2.

    Wasnt a fan of the OML focus. He gets enough elsewhere

    Soule really didn't read Bunn's Uncanny at all, did he? His Angel can't even relate to what Bunn left behind.

    I thought this was okay. Probably the weakest issue so far, but definitely not terrible. I'm not sure OML focus was what this book needed. I'm not particularly convinced of OML in this book at all, truth be told.

    Yeah I also think this was weaker than issue 1 +2, I thought Charles protected Logan from Shadow King? to then see him controlled at the end was a but confusing, but it was still enjoyable, I hope Soule can get it back up to the quality of the first two issues.

    How dose the 20 years fit in to old man logans timeline and why wasnt he listing to Xavier I'm pretty sure that he know more about the situations then him?

    It got interesting at the end with the reveal but for me it was a little boring. Too much Logan, not enough of the others.

    Ed McGuinness art is top notch!

    For the OML haters don't worry, I'm pretty sure this was his only focus issue. The next issue is for the Romy fans. (tbh I'm not a fan of that but oh well) We all have different tastes on life, right?

    I enjoyed the issue.

    it wasnt premature as it deserved it. The first issue was amazing and one of the single best X-issue in years. 2 was also quite good.

    Claremont established long ago there's only one Shadow King across all realities.

    Classic Soule.

    How did Shadow King even capture Xavier's soul/spirit when we clearly saw him in heaven?

    Well heaven in marvel is just another realm that exists. Just like asgard or the dark dimension or Limbo. Heck Angela from Guardians is from heaven

    So it begins...this issue was blah not just for Logan just the clarity of how Shadow King won and what happened to Charles' hand

    the whole thing with the police is stupid

    Flipped through this at the LCS, put it back on the shelf. Seems entirely skip-able.
