First of we have Dark Reign: The List - X-Men. This was a terrific tale in which Norman Osborn decides to try and destroy Namor and his kingdom. It may be short but it is a beautifully put together little piece and is very enjoyable.
Next comes the main meat of the book, the Uncanny X-Men run. This was mindblowing! I mean, I wanted it because I wanted to read the story where Magneto brought Kitty back but I was completely unprepared for the power of the storytelling. It was a beautiful, amazing event where we really feel for the characters, especially Magneto and Kitty. Intertwining with this are a few other story strands, including the efforts to stop Utopia sinking, the attempt to deal with the shard of the Void in Emma's head and a mysterious attack of Predator Xs, which ends up laying the grounwork form Quarentine - though in truth Lobe and his crew are much more threatening here than they subsequently became in that story arc! These add to the overall dimension of the story and help provide a terrific atmosphere, that of people being pushed right to the very edged in their efforts not to be completely destroyed and degraded.
Then comes a really effecting epilogue to the whole Kitty buisness, as it show a planet waiting for years to be destroyed by the buller, only to have it pass through them, allowing them to find a goodness they never had before. It was beautifully done.
And finally, we have the Nation X stories, a really mixed bag of short annecdotes of life on Utopia. Some of these are terrific character studies while others are merely good but overall they do add something to the package.
So, all in all, one fantastic TPB!
The story, itself, isn't very interesting. Matt Fraction is a great author, especially on his work with the Invincible Iron Man series and Uncanny X-Men/Dark Avengers: Utopia. But nothing really happens in this. The story, if there is one, is just about the X-Men characters (mostly Cyclops, Magneto, Beast, Professor Xavier, Emma Frost and Namor) adjusting to life on the island Utopia. The vague plot is that Utopia is sinking, Magneto decides to save everyone, and Cyclops gets annoyed at Magneto becuase "he is the leader of all mutants and he should have dealt with it" or something like that (sorry if it sounds like I don't like Cyclops, but I don't).
So, overall, shameful (to say the least) "artwork" (aka. tracings of other artist's work and porn) and no actual story. Not worth the money at all.
