Jeffery Scott Campbell (born April 12, 1973) is an American comic book artist. He was initially known professionally as Jeffery Scott, but is best known as J. Scott Campbell. He rose to fame as an artist for Wildstorm Comics, though he has since done work for Marvel Comics (most notably as a cover artist on The Amazing Spider-Man), and the video game industry.

Ten issues in, this latest revival of the main X-title was already floundering. Bogged down by either the need for a weekly schedule or the weight of setting up the ‘Age of X-Man’ storyline, my interest in yet another volume of X-capades was waning. It’s only taken two issues for Matthew Rosenberg to completely turn this around and have me waiting intently for the next issue.

Last issue was all impact and set-up. Re-establishing Cyclops role in the team and setting the premise for the story going forward. This issue is break-neck pace and all-out action. Familiar characters populate the story, but this is a strengthening of the Logan and Cyke dynamic that hasn’t felt this strong since the sorely underrated ‘Schism’ storyline.

Matthew Rosenberg, excellent on We Can Never Go Home, strong on Phoenix Resurrection, and clearly has a Jones for all things X-related, has freed himself from the shackles of having to tidy up the X-play room and is now able to move with clearer purpose and direction in terms of story.

In two issues, he’s undone whatever my misgivings may be for Cyclops as he’s been used in the last five years. He’s already washed from my mind the failure-to-launch pointlessness of Wolverine’s death. Marvel, please let him spread his wings and bring the X-men back to a consistency it’s only shown glimpses of since being displaced by the Avengers as the flagship team. After so many false starts and hopes dashed, it’s time for a writer like Matthew Rosenberg to carve a big old X back into comics and really make his mark. - PopCultHQ
