3.0 out of 5 stars A decent build up but a forgettable ending. 22 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
I am uncertain of what to think of this, in some ways it is good but it all feels like it is building to something else leaving the ending very unsatisfying.
Greg Lands art is, well greg lands art, its good in many ways but also looks wrong, and it is pretty inconsistant too, one panel will look like an amazing portrait the next will look like a disproportionate mess. So the art is fairly solid but not great.
The writing? well it's pretty good except the ending, and as the story will likely be followed up the end result may be greater than it seems within the single volume.

One of my favorite X-men tales. Greg Land is my favorite artist. I did not particularly like issue 512 mainly because of the art. Still thats my opinion its up to you to make your mind up. Still I love this book. Fantastic

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrendous 8 Sep 2009
By Alan Smithee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Sisterhood is the latest trade paperback in Matt Fraction's current run on Uncanny X-Men, and it's illustrated by Greg Land (issues 508-511) and Yanick Paquette. (issue 512) Now, odds are if you're reading this review you already know how you feel about Greg Land. Either you enjoy his style of hyperrealism and crisp, clear colors; or you hate the airbrushed faces and lack of discernible emotion. In case it isn't clear I fall into the latter category. The characters have this stiff, unreal quality about them and generally seem only to express one emotion, which is manic glee. Every female appears to be posing for the cover of Glamour even when the story requires them to emote. Apparently though, there are some people that enjoy this sort of thing.

Sadly the art isn't the worst thing about this book. Regardless of you opinions on Land the story is a convoluted mess. The plot goes that the Red Queen is some kind of psychic entity who wants to become corporeal. (This is never properly explained) Although she is rather powerful, she wants a body in order to become more powerful. (Fair enough) She recruits a random assortment of female villains from the bowels of X-Men continuity and enacts her plan to become omnipotent. **I should warn you that some minor spoilers lay ahead if your life is ruined by those kind of things** Her plan goes as thus: Resurrect Psylocke but mind-control her and put her in her old body. Why she felt this was a good idea and wouldn't come back to bite her in the butt is anyone's guess. She uses Psylocke to attack the X-Men in order to steal Wolverine's lock of Jean Grey's hair (sigh) in order to find Jean's body. The location of Jean's body? In the publicly known X-Mansion under a grave marked "Jean Grey-Summers." These are some rather Draco-sized plot holes. Combine that with the "Also-Chuck-Austen-esque" dialogue, those insipid name boxes, (I know who Cyclops is for crying out loud) the random villains with unexplained powers, and what you get is a wholly forgettable experience.

Oh and I almost forgot, there's an issue at the end starring the X-Club who go back in time for reasoning equated to "I 'unno." It's a cute, if slightly irrelevant story.

In short, only pick this up if you're a huge Greg Land fan, or if you absolutely have to own everything with the letter "X" on it. If you're a new fan, maybe one who enjoyed the movies, start perhaps with Astonishing X-Men because this is absolutely inexcusable.

2.0 out of 5 stars the writing improved a little but the art didnt help it 21 Jan 2010
By Pol - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's like a student wrote this on Sunday night and his friend drew it quickly.... and it was due Monday morning. very bad editing. This time, the writing made some sense and was set in the X-universe. but things werent really explained. people just appeared all over randomly. and D listers KO Colossus in like 2 seconds. haha. the art made no sense. everyone had the same faces. I liked his covers sometimes but not good for interior art. I was interested cause lots of X-men i liked were in this one.. including Psylocke. but it skips around a lot. like watching a movie with random missing frames.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fraction rocks!! 19 Sep 2010
By S. Penrose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book really shows off Matt Fraction's skill set and one of his biggest assets as a writer is dialogue. I really enjoyed each conversation and word bubble. The plot was complex but easy enough to follow. The art was beautiful but Greg Land has a problem in that every single female character he draws looks the same. This made some scenes very confusing. Overall, a pretty good read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Classic girl fight! 28 Mar 2013
By Thomas Moradian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It was a sad day when Psylocke died, but now the Sisterhood of Evil has returned - and brought Pyslocke with them! Madeline Pryor is back and has plans for the X-men and their tragic past. It's up to Cyclops and Wolverine to stop the Jean Grey knock-off before her evil plan is fully realized. This arc features awesome girl fights and razor sharp dialogue! You will not be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars x men 21 Dec 2009
By Zach D. L. Story - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've loved the Uncanny X-men for a long time, through many of it's notable ups and downs. I've been following this particular book leading up to and following the Messiah Complex event. This book is.....alright. If you've been reading the stuff before it and you are planning on reading Utopia then this is good. Not great, but good. Worth reading if you're an X Men fan and you like Psylocke.
