Jay - New X-Men #23  
What did everyone think of Jay's part in New X-Men #23? I thought Mark Brooks's Jay art was beautiful. Some of the Best "Jay Art" I've seen. :0)

I liked the artwork of Jay's 'reveal' at the church, but the writing leaves so much to be desired I just can't even bother with it anymore.

I loved the art, but I worry about where this storyline will take Jay.

I pretty much agree; good art, but I find it a bit hard to care since NXM is all about the deaths now. I know the new team isn't in danger, so we just have to wait for the rest of the cast to be killed off so Marvel can be "shocking."

Exactly. My problem with it is that I've seen fanfic written much better, and more in character, than what we're seeing now. Lots of fanfic. This stuff is just... bad. I can't put it any other way.

It seems that anymore Marvel is all about the 'shockers' and just chock full of 'good' writing.

Sometimes I feel like it actually hurts to read the things I used to love so much.

The art, however, was nice.

Do you have links to NXM fic? I haven't actually looked for it before, I was pleased enough with what was happening in canon. Now that canon is in kill-kill-kill mode, I wouldn't mind reading fic.

I love Mark's artwork. (He was also pretty cool when I spoke to him at Baltimore Comic con..even got a signed print. *SQUEE*)

Anyways, I haven't been able to grab this particular issue yet...I am worried about his fate...especially reading this interview with Craig Kyle and Chris Yost the writers. (Warning, spoilerish pictures are included).

I have to agree with the shock statements, I thought when M day happened, we already got rid of a lot of interesting students who never had their stories told (not to mention certain hellion & new mutent team members).

I keep holding out and hoping (on a half dream) that Jay somehow gets his wings back. -_-;; I *LOVE* his character too much now!!

I'm also *REALLY* getting annoyed that the ONLY people who ever seem to stay dead in the X-men universe are usually ALWAYS Emma's kids.

God friggn *string of explitives* I *knew* they were going to do that to them. And they were my first favourite from the book. I hate these writers. I hate house of M. ;.;

I want the book I first picked up because on a whim I picked up a Wizard mag and saw the 4 previous pages in not the stupid piece of crap they've turned it into.

(No this is isn't about Jay, but I'm trying to be non spoilery)
