2.0 out of 5 stars Unnecessary prequels, leave to last 14 Aug 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
However good the Age of Apocalypse story line was, arranging the stories in "chronological" order is misleading, as the first volume is essentially a collection of prequels, most of which were written after the main story had been published, and the result is very sketchy conitinuity throughout this book, the ending is more or less given away, and a four issue Blink limited series which is set predominantly in a world called the negative zone and therefore entirely irrelevant to the story seen in volumes 2-4. If you haven't read the Age of Apocalypse before, I strongly recommend that you start on book 2, and only read book 1 after you've read books 2-4, and even then only if you really enjoyed books 2-4.

There are however two issues from this collection which although still prequels to the Age of Apocalypse story were originally written and published at the same time, and these two could be read before the main Age of Apocalypse story, but won't add too much to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly enjoyable 30 Oct 2010
By The Emperor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As stated in another review volume 2 might be a better starting place.
This is more of a prequel. It is quite disjointed as you would expect.
I did enjoy it though and the artwork was generally decent throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning of the End! 30 July 2006
Once when I was a boy, I had an X-Men comic. I loved it. The art was lavish, the dialouge (still) sophisticated beyond measure and the story. The story was like nothing else.

Often if I read a book or see a film I think - I wish that'd happened. That idea is conceptually what AoA is about.

The X-Men are nothing like you see in the regular Earth 616 continuity.

Apocalypse has siezed control as Charles Xavier is accidentally assassinated by his own time-travelling son. Magneto leads the X-Men in honour of his dead friend.

If you like the X-Men, if you really like them. Don't read about this series on the internet or ask your mates to tell you the story. Just buy. It's awesome. It's the blockbust event at marvel and it isn't disappointing.

The first book is just an opening collection of stories set in the AoA. With a four part Blink tale at the end. It's a wicked book. Wish they'd been published in hard cover but too bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bad-Boy of Marvel's Story Arcs 12 Jun 2006
By Dazher
Well if you got this far reading about this product I'll guess you know X-Men, Marvel and AoA (Age of Apocalypse) or at least know something about them. For those who weren't around during the original AoA spin its a question of what would've happened if Professor Xavier had never been around.

First off - this is Marvel's best "big" story .. and I mean big, this was a crossover of several major Marvel titles!

Second off - this first book of four is the setting up story mainly. Great art from all of the artists (unlike books 2 & 3 which is less good in places). Good fun catching up with your favourite characters (yes they're all here, plus a few newbies - but not always doing what you'd expect ... Cyclops is the man! unlike the wimp he is in normal continuity)

Forget Infinity Gauntlet and other big Marvel stories (which were always tenuous ... even for a comic). This is the bad-boy of Marvel stories!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good but start at book 2 22 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read plenty of other x-men comics i thought i would give this a read, i really like the chracter apocalypse but not in this book. Did read the other reviews and should of started where the other people said. Should of sterted at epic book 2 and read this last, because when you start reading this you dont really understand whats going on and can become very confusing. Having read the others i do like the twist they have given the x-men and is a very good read with very good illastrations. But like i said read the others then read this.
