All New X-men #23 Review

The Trial of Jean Grey continues, grab a chair and let's watch!

The Good

The humor, which is something I didn't expect in a trial of Jean Grey comic, in this book is quite good. The culture shock between the X-Men and the Guardians of the Galaxy keeps the book from being too serious, but it never becomes annoying. The cover, as well as the interior art, is slick and catches the eye keeping you looking at it.

The Not So Good

Yes, they are retconning Rocket Raccoon's origins and no he is no longer an actual raccoon. This is both pointless and completely stupid considering his name is Rocket Raccoon!

The Bottom Line

This is a great book as well as a fantastic story arc. I am genuinely interested in how this is going to end and what the long term repercussions will be. As I said, the art is eye catching, the writing is tight, the humor is surprising and very funny, and the whole set up was actually done in a logical way. Fans of the X-Men need to pick this book up, as well as anyone looking for a good read.

4.5 / 5
