Still a lot of soap opera in the story, but at least this one had an actual plot or two outside of the soap opera. One was a murder mystery that was never truly solved, though I suppose that will come in a later volume. The second story was more of an action brawl, though there was a lot of the Scott Summers whining and moping going on at the beginning. All in all the stories were not that bad. What really sucked was the lousy artwork. I know that each artist feels a need to express some individuality, but that took things a bit far, to the point where some characters were only identifiable due to iconic elements in their outfits. Had the artwork been better I would have given it a full 4 stars. Yes, the artwork was that bad, and it cost a full star on the review.
