    1. Dude, this is freaking comic book. Get over it already.Lady Deathstrike, dead? Not so much anymore.The Sisterhood of Evil is doing it for themselves. Lady Deathstrike is inhabiting some drug cartel king pin’s daughter and she won’t take “no” for an answer in her search for Akrea, some piece of alien super tech that will help her become a super-duper-cyber-villain.This is a comic, so “no” means “yes”, as in “yes”, let’s kick some X-Men tush.We have a heavy dose of estrogen o [...]

    2. 3.5 starsMUERTAS!Nice spooky titleOk, I liked this one a little better than the 1st volume. It's not mind-blowing, but at least Rachael and Storm are going at each other anymore.The plot was pretty action-packed, but (at times) over the top when it came to world-ending stuff.Don't these guys live in a world with the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D the Fantastic Four, Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova Corps, and the Runaways? Hell, there are even a shitload of X-teams that these guys could call in for backup.S [...]

    3. It just felt kind of thin to me. Thin plot, thin characters. Wood never really explored Ana Cortez or her motivation for turning herself into a host for Lady Deathstrike. At the start of the book, she says something about vengeance, but never says what for. And at the end, she suddenly just wanted to meet famous heroes? I don't think Wood ever really decided what he wanted to do with Ana, or ever really made her feel like she was sharing a body with Lady Deathstrike. And the resolution felt awfu [...]

    4. This is actually less than a 2-star book.It should be called X-(wo)Men; how many ovaries can we throw into one book? This was supposed to be a great idea, a team we could enjoy, by a great writer (Wood). Instead, it feels like a gimmick-y, quota-filler.So from last time, and then the events of Battle of the Atom; Kitty is no longer in the picture, nor is Rogue (still not sure why on her). Instead we've got that chick who was in the coma and then became possessed by John Sublime's "sister", and i [...]

    5. 2.5*Lots of characters are coming back in this volume, some of them from the dead pile, too. I really didn't get why Ana Cortés wanted to be Lady Deathstrike. I think she says somehting about wanting to do sth but it was never quite explained Also it took me a re-read to know what happened to her after she takes matters onto her own hands [I want to keep this spoiler free].Even though I don't like Jubilee specially, I am finding her parts more likeable,m with the young XMen being sidekicks to t [...]

    6. I have yet to read a Brian Wood book I liked. This female team of X-Men could beould bee. But it's just kinda there. Wasted opportunity. Keep the idea, but reboot with a new creative team.

    7. This is a deeply terrible book on essentially every level. Plot, character, basic story structure, the need to communicate what in the hell is going on clearly. All of these are a solid F. It's kind of unbelievable that this was written by a celebrated comics author.First of all, the plot itself makes absolutely no sense. Arkea, the super A.I./computer goddess or whatever she is who we literally just watched the X-Men defeat in volume 1, is already back. In volume 1 we learned that if she were t [...]

    8. Underwhelmed to Hell and back. What the heck is my problem lately with duds??? Thank god for Rocket Raccoon #1, which I'm really looking forward too. Hopefully that doesn't disappoint me tooBut then again, I'm used to it.

    9. I liked this volume slightly better than the first. For one thing, this volume had some Terry Dodson art. If you are going to do a book starring female X-men, Terry Dodson is a great choice for artist. Really sexy art. That was about the only saving grace though. The story wasn't terrible but just seemed so typical. It's a continuation of the first volume dealing with the sentient computer virus. Visually nice, but overall still disappointing.

    10. Just look at the cover. That quality is basically what you get inside. Gorgeous interior art. The story is okay - if a little underwhelming - but it's amusing to read the ladies' interactions, even if I don't know what all their beef with each other is.

    11. A solid, satisfying read in the traditional comic bookadition or whatever. I'm happy that the Arkea arc did not end with the first book, and I'm curious to see what will happen in the next. And how charming to see Psylocke make some kind of sense.

    12. All the X-Ladies kicking butt.The story is all over the place.Still I am happy to see the fun is still here.

    13. There is a lot going on, and a lot of team dynamics but the overall story isn't lost or distracted by it. I don't understand John's comment about the serial killer 'The Future' or why Quinten is in the fight and guarding John at the same time (is this an editorial mistake, or are there really two Quinten's????).

    14. I ended up enjoying this a lot more than I expected to. With Storm, Psylocke, and Jubilee on the roster, it's hard to not be a fan. The book gets off to a bit of a rocky start with an odd villain origin and some extremely forced situations, but it quickly hits it's stride in telling a compelling second chapter to this story. One issue I did have with the writing was how everything was so contrived. It wasn't a matter of what story did Brian Wood want to tell, it felt more like what characters di [...]

    15. Read as single issues

    16. I thought the first volume of this new all-female X-Men series was very strong. That quality continues with volume 2. Lady Deathstryke’s consciousness has been downloaded into a new body. And she’s determined to continue “upgrading” that body with the best cybernetics she can buy or steal. Sometimes, when a familiar enemy is resurrected to trouble heroes again, it feels redundant. Been there, done that. However, this isn't exactly Yuriko – she’s sharing the body of Ana Cortez who beg [...]

    17. Meh.I think any reader who picks up an X-Men comicbook in a fallow period between movies is probably someone who's read some X-Men before. So when you resurrect big bads (i.e Selene and the Goblin Queen), and let them wander offstage, it's a real distraction. If the authors were willing to build up Arkea over years as a world-threatening baddie, this would be allowable. But Arkea's quick demise here prevents her from developing weight as a threat. That is, the sense that a particular comicbook v [...]

    18. This collection was a rollercoaster ride for sure, but likely not in the way it was intended:"Psylocke, Storm, Jubilee, and other X-'Men' with questionable representation over the years are finally calling the shots!""Butwhat's the in-story justification for this team besides a clumsy attempt at addressing comics' tainted gender roles?""On the plus side, Dodson, Anka, and Mann are all stellar artists and draw the tale without falling back on the cheesecake tropes!""Butwhat's actually going on he [...]

    19. Lady Deathstrike forms a new Sisterhood to take on the X-Men.I kind of want to say there's more direction then the previous book, but maybe it's just that its more of a fun read and there's nothing serious about it.It could be called the Sisterhood of the traveling Ok not that, Sisterhood Recruiting: Trails and tribulations. Something like that.This book is not filled with any of my fav xmen but as soon as they talk they become my favorite X-Men. I can't say that there's anything special about t [...]

    20. The second volume of the all female X-Men lineup. Kitty Pryde and Rogue drop from the roster, and Monet St Croix is added. The team dynamic still feels natural, and the make-up of the team still feels logical. In this volume we are introduced to the Sisterhood, an all female group of X-Villains. Sadly, this development feels entirely contrived. The current X-Team is made up of the best members for the job at this time, their antagonists seem thrown together by Wood just to have a distaff supervi [...]

    21. 3.5 out of 5, which is perhaps too generous considering there was a moment Really bad plotting (where Quentin Quire's in battle, then at school, then back at battle) that I question if the copy I was reading had been assembled out of order (verdict'a still out!).The rest if the plotting isn't great and I felt like I had to really commit to wanting to finish the volume due to a mediocre story and in compelling characters.Perhaps my biggest complaint aside from the plot structure is the characters [...]

    22. Yeah, X-Women!! I definitely had missed some stuff that must have happened in other X-books, but who cares? As long as you're willing to accept at face value that you can save human consciousness on floppy disks and plug them into other people no problem, and I am, then you can follow this book.I did think it was kind of odd that a Colombian villain was using Mexican Day of the Dead face makeup? I mean it did look cool though. And at some point someone calls her a hipster for doing so. Oh also, [...]

    23. Very strong collection. The story is a good one and the art is pretty good (though quite variable from issue to issue, and even within issues), too. This title focuses on a loosely-organized group of all-female mutants as they battle with the continuing threat of Arkea, an alien consciousness capable of inhabiting the world's electronics and computer systems, and her team of supervillains, including the psychic imprint of Lady Deathstrike, Typhoid Mary, and the Enchantress (and featuring the ret [...]

    24. 3.5 starsGreat addition to the series, the art is fantastic and the dialogue between the characters is great!! It just feels like this volume was more to set up further stories with the return of Selene and Madelyne Prior!! I wonder what's gonna happen next. There's plenty of action to keep you hooked but I wish there could have been more of Lady Deathstrike taking on people!! It seems like the main fighting scenes with her were when Ana Cortes takes over!! I would have loved to see maybe some o [...]

    25. I enjoyed this collection immensely. It's rare to see women in super hero comics drawn and written here. It's a lot of fun to see a team of all female x-men fighting all female villains. The characters are smart and interesting. Here, they are not all relying on their superpowers, which is nice. Yes, there are superpowers, but it didn't overwhelm the character development. I also like the tongue in cheek use of Hellion at the end. It's a nod to the way women are drawn and they do him justice. :D [...]

    26. It was disappointing. It has some of my favorite characters (Storm, Jubilee, Rachel Summers, Monet St Croix, Quire) and some cool villains, but it was full of plotholes and weak characterization. There was a lot of people telling us how bad-ass and tough they were and very few actual scenes of them fighting or proving their mettle. Even worse was how when Arkea shows up, all these terrifying villains bow down and work for her, but when the X-men show up, they all leave. It was a lot of build up [...]

    27. I like the concept behind all this, but they are REALLY shoehorning it in. Not only are they working hard to make it believable (and not really doing it) that somehow all these women came together for this team, but that their main opposition, for no real reason, forms up an all-female evil team? I love, LOVE the concept of an all-female X-men, but making the bad guys an all-female team too is not only lazy, it feels very sexist. Let the women fight the big baddies in the universe, regardless of [...]

    28. This is much better than the other X-men book that Brian Wood was working on (actually, I think he has written a lot of different books featuring mutants) that had storm and Colossus and Pixie on the team. There is a bit of a crossover from that book, into this one.I really like the idea of an all female X-team. The female X-men characters are the best Female characters Marvel has, and there are a ton of them. What I like particularily about this book is that Wood really develops Rachel Summers' [...]

    29. It was OK, but sadly not unforgettable. I was so excited about an all-female X-men series, I really wish it had been better (also, on an unrelated note, it would have been cool if the all-female thing extended to the writers as well). It's not bad, it just lacks the thrills, and I wish more time was spent on the characters, even though there were some cool moments (Bling <3 Rachel <3)Also, the resolution was quite anti-climatic in my opinion.I'll get the rest of the series, if only to supp [...]

    30. Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh.I mean I have no serious problems with it, but the series started out with some characters I really love and then either got rid of them or scaled them back significantly. There are still some great moments, and a good plot line going, but I'm just not into it. What it basically has come down to is I'd like to keep reading, but without having to pay for it. Also, when they started planning to bring Maddie back, I was kinda done. So yeah.Meh.
