I'm sorry to report that this was a very disappointing volume, start to finish.
For me one of the things that has always made X-Men titles great is the way they have generally done a good job examining the relationship between the mutants and society in general, as well as amongst themselves. Conversely, to my mind they are at their weakest when shifting the story to fantastical realms like Asgard or the Shi'ar Empire, or, in this case, Heaven and Hell.
Yes, that's right. Not only do they resurrect Nightcrawler, a character I do have a certain fondness for, but they actually show him in Heaven wistfully looking back on Earth and...blecch! I can't even finish that sentence.
To make matters worse, there are broods of annoying Nightcrawler-themed Ewoks called Bamfs (I'm not making this up), and the final issue, which looked very cheaply done indeed, has an epic party of X-Men past and present welcoming Kurt Wagner back among the living at a local bar in Westchester...and they're all in full costume, including masks. Pretty weak sauce. I can almost see the hand of an anxious editor telling the art team, "better put them in costume to make sure the readers recognize who is who."
So, yeah, I didn't like it. Rant done.

A very pleasant surprise. I don't hate the character of Nightcrawler but would never buy a book or series centred on him...unless Jason Aaron wrote it and Ed McGuinness drew it. Oh, wait...
