  -Awesome issue, the resolution is satisfying. I could see a movie script in this arc.
-I guess CC was continuing to follow his formula of strong female characters saving the day. Was he trying the right the "wrongs" of 60s and 70s Marvel misogyny? I'm not tired of it yet, but I'm feeling I will be soon.
-I recognize that the cliffhanger here wreaks havoc with CMRO continuity, but this issue should be moved closer to the bulk of the "Sleazoid" arc (or vice versa).

  Really good issue. Slow start, but when it picks up it doesn't stop. Kitty and her little side story were really cute.

  The real joy was seeing Dragon in this. Took me completely by surprise.

  Red's on point again. This would make an absolutely killer movie. Why hasn't Fox signed this up? Would have been better than the Apocalypse movie.

  I liked Lilandra's green lightsaber (predating Luke's in RotJ?)
