Layout/Flow - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 4.4

- This issue follows the events from Ultimate Comics X-Men #18.1 - Point One. While the cover is interesting if it wasn't and X-Men book or an Ultimate book I probably would skip over it. I'm really glad we have a new artist on this issue. If you read my review of #18.1 you will know how much I disliked the previous artist. This issue is pretty simple and not much happens. It involves Kitty Pryde and the other mutants that didn't take the cure, starting their life in the Utah desert at the Utopia Reservation. The issue also sees Mach Two (Nomi) trying to pressure Kitty into fighting, and has the others vote who should lead them. I like that this issue is pretty easy to follow so new readers should be able to jump on and understand the basics. I can't wait to see the elements that were revealed like Karen Grant (Jean Grey) on the final page, and the hint at who Nomi might actually be.
