The Head of X, Jonathan Hickman, and Russell Dauterman take to tangoing with two of the most powerful telepaths in the X-Men Universe. Jean Grey, the heart of the X-Men over the years, and Emma Frost, sinister and seductive member of the Hellfire Club, come together to help solve a mystery. Two young X-Men find Storm downed and bloody on Krakoa and in an apparent coma. Jean and Emma delve into her mind to find out what’s going on.

Throughout the course of this issue, we see extensive amounts of visual imagery. Delving into the spirit of another person in the most symbolic and unhinged way. This investigation culminates in the discovery of a terrible matter and a concern that needs to be addressed immediately.

Nailbiter Returns # 8 (REVIEW)

This issue is action packed, visually stunning and has a unique mystique for its lack of dialog. The visuals have a richness and depth while also being a strong punch of action. Subtle details, like the diminishing amount of floral bordering in the first couple of pages, shows an attention to hoisting the narrative without words. With the limited dialog, every word used needed to setup and propel the story in a positive way and it accomplished this goal. The voyage through Storm’s mind was a masterpiece of sights and feelings and truths. I have personally never read a comic that said so little but told so much and it was a pure joy to read.
