*****

Mandated by Marvel to produce a wordless issue, GM & FQ create avant-pop, one of the greatest single issues of the X-Men ever. No mere gimmick, they convey a pivotal story beat (Prof X fought his evil twin in utero) using silence to build a surreal astral space for the heroines’ psychic journey.

last issue: New X-Men #120
next issue: New X-Men #122

also indexed for Feb. ’02
Alias #4
Avengers #49
