SOMETHING HAPPEN ALREADY!!! Ok so now I'm starting to get frustrated with this series. We are now on issue eight and it still feels like nothing is happening. Yes they are still in this big battle but yet nothing of importance has happened.

There are a few small revelations that pop up but they somewhat get over shadowed by the fact that this story is just dragging on and on without any sort of pay off in sight. I think the only thing of significance is the interaction between Beast and Anole but that again is only two pages in this twenty eight page book. This moment had me asking several questions as its yet another been there done that moment but seemed to almost come out of left field, in this series at least.

While many have not been a fan of the New Uncanny X-Men I have been trying to stay positive but I can't anymore. This series is failing to really deliver anything new an exciting. Just when I think we are getting somewhere we turn down another road of something we have done before. Disassembled is ending soon and we head right into Age of X-Man and I fear that we wont get any sort of payoff to this extremely slow build.

Maybe Age of X-Man will better but I am slowly loosing faith in this creative team. Each one of these writers have impressed me with their understanding of what makes for a good x-story. That they truly understood the characters and how to craft the complicated soap opera that is the X-Men. But altogether maybe this is a case of too many cooks in the kitchen. 

At this point now unless you are a hardcore X-Men fan and were going to read the series no matter what, there really isn't any reason to invest in this unfortunate lackluster series. This story is failing and it really breaks this x-geeks heart.
