A Giant Meat Sentinel?

Okay, lets start with the obvious. I can't remember what happened in the previous issue because it came out half a year ago! So, I'll try to remember to go and dig up AX #30 at some point in time just so I can understand why #31 starts this way. I realize I am getting old, but this irregular schedule does not help (least of all in terms of continuity.) The issue itself... It was pretty good! Ellis definitely loves, "witty banter." Having the X-Men still in San Fransisco takes a minute or two to get used to, but the story works. This is probably because of the suprise ending which features a long thought dead New X-Men (whose powers were pheremone based...) All-in-all, I didn't mind this story. Sure the Brood part was completely ripped off from Alien, but heck, it was back when the Brood were created as well. Sure Agent Brand has more testosterone than Wolverine and Captain America combined, but hey, whe makes for a great antagonist and an even more interesting companion to the Beast. I didn't hate this read, so i guess I must have liked it....a little.
