Book Description

6 Dec 2006 Omnibus
Sixteen million mutants dead... and that was just the beginning! In one bold stroke, writer Grant Morrison (The Invisibles, JLA, Fantastic Four: 1234) propelled the X-Men into the 21st century - masterminding a challenging new direction for Marvel's mutant heroes that began with the destruction of Genosha and never let up. Regarded as the most innovative thinker of the current comic-book renaissance, Morrison proceeded to turn the mutant-hero genre on its ear. Gone were the gaudy spandex costumes - replaced by slick, black leather and an attitude to match. Now, his entire Eisner Award-nominated run on New X-Men is collected in one deluxe hardcover! Collects New X-Men #114-154 and Annual 2001

4.0 out of 5 stars An Overwhelming Overhaul 25 Dec 2006
Format:Hardcover
When Grant Morrison took over the line he made a very brave and bold step that cut the entire cast of mutants down to a select few. The New X Men Omnibus starts with Professor Xaiver, Jean Grey, Emma Frost, Wolverine, Cyclops and a Beast who had recently experienced another mutation which left him more powerful and with a more feline appearance, and grows from there.

The stories in this book are all excellently executed and superbly drawn by many top artists. They provide us with some new exploration of characters within a cast of old, well loved characters and some new Xavier students. It wouldn't have been much of a 'New X Men' Omnibus without them! Beak, Dust and Emma Frost's prodigies 'The Stepford Cuckoos' are all excellent additions to the Marvel world with plenty of scope to explore the issues associated with mutancy and growing up.

I would recommend this book to any comic fan who can afford it. The dialogue is sharp, moving and (particularly with regards to Miss Frost) funny and the art shows the emotion and action with an expert ease.

The general public, terrorists, Weapon X projects, Sentinels and other mutants are pitted against our heros but each with a new twist that keeps the reader constantly guessing.

Grant Morrison has made a name as one of 'THE' names in modern popular comic writing and The New X Men Omnibus is a pretty substantial argument in his favour.

As a young child growing up in the early 1990s, there was nothing cooler than the X-Men. Under the stewardship of Jim Lee, the X-Men were cool, dynamic and sexy. But then, as the decade wore on and the Jim Lee era faded into memory, the X-Men lost their way. No longer on the cutting edge of comics, and loosing young fans like myself who were growing up, the focus of the creative teams became one of a distinct conservativism. It seemed that the priority for Marvel was to keep their top franchise in continued stasis, in an attempt to prolong the glorious Jim Lee/Chris Claremont eras of the past and, most importantly, to retain their hardcore fan base who are resilient to change.

By the early 2000s, this creative direction could no longer sustain itself. Marvel were barely dragging their heels out of bankruptcy and, compared to a decade earlier, superhero comics sales were miserable. The X-Men franchise, in particular, was a pathetic little imitation of what it once was, but this was very much a reflection of Marvel Comics as a whole. So, out of desperation, the editorial bigwigs did the only thing they could in a last-ditch effort to save their company... They opened the doors up to great creators, took a step back, and said "create". This relatively brief period of creative freedom, and distinct lack of editorial interference, produced some of the best works of Marvel's history (such as: Brian Bendis' Daredevil, J. Michael Straczynski's

This omnibus collects the complete run of Grant Morrison on the X-men and i have to stay i really enjoyed the story! it was one of the best stores i have ever read on X-men and despite the superpowers, fictional places etc. he manages in combination with the art to give a realistic feel to the X-men so even if you don't read comic books and just like the movies then you will definitely enjoy this omnibus. I recommend it for anyone from the movie fans to comic book fans
