5.0 out of 5 stars Wolverine & the X-Men by Jason Aaron Omnibus Review 17 Jun 2014
By Xavier Zavala Heras - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
So when this title was announced I was... less than thrilled. Wolverine as a teacher? Yeah, right. "Another comedy title", I thought.

Then the first volume came out on hardcover, and the discount was insane, so I bought it. "Is not that bad", I thought.

The discount I got for this Omnibus was considerable, so it was a no brainer. I mean, who let a good deal go? Even when the book is not 100% your favorite? Well, I didn't... and I'm SO happy I didn't!!!

Wolverine & the X-Men by Jason Aaron Omnibus is one of the greatest X-Men collections I got now. I'm just half way through it, but is SO good!!!!! It does have comedy in it, but is not a bad thing. Is actually good. A great start! There's a lot of new characters (for me anyway), but there's such a good character development that is impossible not to get sucked into the story.

This book have the New X-Men (by Grant Morrison) kind of vibe, in which there was characters like Beak that, at first sight, you'll go "what the hell is that??", but at the end you fell in love with it.

Anyway, the quality of the book is a bit beyond great. Page quality is good, and binding is strong as ever.

Get it and enjoy it!
4.0 out of 5 stars School Is In with A Headmaster That Will Stab You If You Misbehave. Yikes!!! 28 Jun 2014
By Slim Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This oversized hardcover collection collects issues 1-35, 38-42 and Annual 1. Issues 36 and 37 can be found in the X-Men: Battle of the Atom collection and were omitted because the issues serve the Battle of the Atom crossover and would have been pointless here.

Another epic X-Men collection is here as writer Jason Aaron leaves his mark on the X-verse. Aaron's prior work at Marvel involved more solo act "heroes" in a more gritty style like the Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Wolverine. His solo Wolverine run is very good but very heavy as well as it is a very character driven focused series that puts a man of Logan's talents and situations through the wringer. Aaron decided to take this anti-hero and go against the grain and go with a more humorous tone. The series is all the better for it. It has it's serious side, action and adventure, and heartfelt moments but it is a heck of a lot of fun. Aaron's run is probably the closest in tone to Grant Morrison's awesome New X-Men epic.

The whole setup for the series follows a huge fallout between Wolverine and Cyclops stemming from the X-Men: Schism event and Wolvie going back to the original location of Xavier's school in New York and setting up a new one. Wolverine has made huge changes in his views on life and one of those is to follow in Xavier's footsteps by fighting for a world for peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans while providing a safe haven for young mutants. He gets fellow X-Men: Beast, Iceman, Rachel Grey, and Kitty Pyrde to name a few, to leave Cyclops' camp of Utopia off of the coast of San Francisco to help Logan realize this dream.

Aaron, like Morrison's run, acknowledges that this place is a school and gives focus to a wide variety of students. The school itself is wacky and a lot of fun just like the series. The senior X-Men, who are also teachers here (Oh no!) and a very enjoyable group of students ranging from the punk Quentin Quire, to Glob Herman, the self loathing Idie, and alien intellect savant of the hive minded savage race Brood, Broo, have many adventures and hardships as they just try and make it through a school year. Some of these adventures include an alien scientist hatching a scheme, to field trips to the Savage Land, plus an overarching plot starting the from the first issue of a new Hellfire Club run by psychopathic human adolescents threaten the schools existence. There is also an infestation of blue furred teleporting elfs nicknamed Bamfs (hmmm what could that mean long time X-readers?) causing havoc like stealing Headmaster Logan's whiskey!!! The series also features a ton of other cameos that I will let you discover that range from just plain fun to heart felt.

This series does get highjacked for ten issues for the Avengers Vs. X-Men event. No reading of the main event is necessary or any other tie-ins for that matter to get what is going on. Aaron fills the reader in quite nicely while continuing his own story.

All the artists involved in this book are fantastic. Breakout artist Nick Bradshaw who has a very detailed cartoony style does the bulk of the series and you really miss him on issues he does not do. Chris Bachalo, Ramon, Perez, and Pepe Larraz do extended runs to great effect with a bunch of singular fill in artists. Have to mention the legendary Mike Allred's one issue as he comes on to help Aaron spotlight his co-creation of Doop and just why the heck he is even at the school. Very fun and groovy issue.

With how much I am praising this collection, why the four stars and not five? Well, even though the series is called "Wolverine" and the X-Men I felt he got too much attention and that the students could have been more developed and explored as well as members of the Hellfire Club. Also, I cannot call it a near perfect series to be up there with the likes of Morrison's and Whedon's runs but it comes close, there just is something missing but it is a great series. All the credit in the world to Jason Aaron and all the creative talent in the world for this fun take on the X-Men. P. S. Aaron and all the artists involved are killing on Thor: God of Thunder. A man of many talents!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cyclops & the Xmen! 24 Jun 2014
By Tryoform - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a huge xmen fan Ive never really been a fan of Wolverine. (Cyclops fan) I can see way others like him. He is the best at what he does. Problem is he is everywhere! When this series began and ended I heard nothing but good things about the series. So when this book came out I decided to give it a shot. Got to say I can see why everyone loves it! Good story, good art, just good everything! The only downside is that 10 of these issues are set during the AvX storyline. Now this book is great on its own but to see the dark side of Wolverine and to see what hes up to when not at the school, check out Uncanny Xforce omnibus.
