Grant Morrison starts his epic run on the x-men. Spandex is gone, repaced by leather, and the team is cut to a handful, enabling better character development instead of characters running all over the place (like current uncanny x-men).
This volume is absolutely essential for Emma Frost fans like me who loves the sarcastic, cold, morally ambiguous character as it is the first time she has been put at the forefront of x-men lore, and where she joins the team. This is arguably the best part of Morrisons run. Other notable characters that appear include Lilandra, the Imperial Guard and new baddie Cassandra Nova, who shares a connection with Professor X.

THIS is what the X-Men SHOULD be!!! The X-Men for the 21st century.

Grant Morrison wrote New X-Men for three uninterupted years and had possible the most wide-spread fan and non-fan appeal out of any X-Book ever.

This book is fresh, smart, fast, witty, deep, clever, knowing, character-based literature. Gone are the boring, seen-it-before concepts and, frankly embarrassing tights.

What this book represents is a brave new approach to the X-Men and Marvel Comics in general. A startling book for the new millenium. It broke boundaries and you always had, when reading it, the impression that anything could happen, and it always did!

The look is fantastic, also. The Artwork, the new characters, suits, jets, settings and the design accross the board is astonishing.

Its a shame that Marvel dont put out X-Men stories half as good as this any more. This looks lightyears ahead of everything they are currently churning out and it was realesed in 2001.

A fantastic read for Fans and non-fans. For people who loved the movies and want to read the books, this is where they should start. X-cellent!!!!

Grant Morrison began his run on "New X-Men" 11 years ago but still the series reads as fresh today as it did back then. He sets the tone quickly by having a psychotic psychic beget a genocide killing millions of mutants and then sets off for the stars to bring in the Shi'Ar to battle the X-Men. Suffice it to say, Morrison brings it.

What an epic start to one of Marvel's best loved series! From the Ecuadoran jungle with the Sentinel Factory at the start, heading back to Westchester, then space, even journeying into Xavier's mind! This large, nearly 400-page first volume collecting Grant Morrison's 3 year run on the series, contains too much to go into in a mere review.

Not all of the X-Men are included in Morrison's version, the core remains Xavier, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Emma Frost, and of course Wolverine. Rogue and Storm are left out, maybe to included later, while Morrison and Quitely revise the X-Men's outfits to look less colourful and comic-book-y - the end result is pretty awesome though Emma Frost's "flesh X" you can see on the cover makes her look like a Amsterdam hooker than a teacher.

I thought Cassandra Nova was an excellent villain, a character I'd never heard of before and a challenge for all of the X-Men to defeat. Her methods of destruction - the decimation of confidence, character, and personality - was an interesting way of fighting without using physical force. It's abstract but this is Morrison writing so you've got to expect that. Plus the hyper-surreal silent issue where Jean and Emma journey into Xavier's tormented mind was fantastic, full props to Frank Quitely for pulling it off so masterfully.

There are lots of nice touches in the story throughout and any fans of the X-Men will enjoy the book.

Morrison Knocks it out of the park, with an envigorating and fresh take on the x-men that is similar to that of the current film franchise. The art is good in the hands of Ethan Van Sciver and Frank Quitley but one can find Igor Cordley's contrabution very lacking in substance and reliability, but with that said he does sometimes give a good issue and his art cannot detract from Morrison's fantastic writing that really puts a fresh take on the x-men. I would highly recomend this it is a great read and I can't wait to read the next book.

I felt sadly let down by the start of Grant Morrison's New X-Men run. I will start by saying that I have gone back to read this run rather than having read it upon it's release. Now I will add that I fully appreciate how Morrison managed to reinvent and largely reinvigorate the X-Men characters but perhaps as I had been reading the more recent X-Men runs I took these elements a little bit for granted.

A few of the smaller arcs, notably the E is For Extinction arc, I did enjoy though I felt lacked a bit of depth. I also kept feeling more of a disconnect with the characters than I have with other X-Men runs, though again perhaps the reinvention of many characters meant that it takes a little longer for Morrison to find his voice with them.

The art work is a mixed bag, Frank Quitely has a few fantastic mini-arcs but the likes of Igor Kordey's art work stands out like a sore thumb due to its poorer quality.

Overall, I didn't necessarily hugely dislike the start to Morrison's run but I certainly found myself getting bored by them fairly easily which is never a good sign.
