What You Need to Know:

The X-Men and Venom captured Haze Mancer for him to only be freed by an unknown assailant. This can only mean bad news for the team.

What Just Happened:

As the assailant and Mancer are heading fast towards Broodspace with the captured starjammers, the X-Men are on their trail. With ice fired through their haul, maybe this time the X-Men and their new friends have the advantage.

There are some great moments and dialogue like when the X-Men believed that the symbiotes are working with them and will leave at the end. In his own way, Venom warned them it may not be so easy.

So who is controlling who as they make decisions they never would? Of course, they should not even be there in the first place. They split into two groups with one going after the pirates and the other the starjammers. It all comes down to this: does Scott save his old man whilst the second team defeat the pirates?

And are the symbiotes planning something whilst being bonding to the X-Men? Or is there something more sinister in space for them to worry about? Either way we are in for one hell of a finale.

Final Thoughts:

Another fantastic issue as this story tale really grows on me and it is a shame it is about to the end. The team in space gives them more opportunities for them to grow I think; all previous adventures in space always got the best out of the characters.

The art was was good at showing off some awesome fight scenes. I like that we are finally seeing more from the supporting characters, but still there is the main focus on Scott, Jean, and Venom.

I have been into comics since the early 90's and my main passion has been X-men I collect books, figures and any collectiables I can get my hands on. For shoot the breeze I have the pleasure opening my eyes to new worlds and adventures. I also do the Across the Pond Trades where I get an opportunity to look at trade paperbacks and review them via our YouTube channel. I also have my own Facebook page and Youtube called Smerdp which is full of plastic goodness. Many Thanks Paul
