Finally a good solid X-Men read.
on 12 January 2012
Finally, for the first time in recent months, the X-Men gets a decent story which changes the X-Men dynamics forever.
Jason Arron comes into the X-Men to show what he can do and he really does pull it off. The X-Men have a situation that has to be dealt with and is very serious to the point where it will change one of the characters forever. Cyclops wants to go one way and Wolverine strongly wants to go the other. This leads to one massive SCHISM through the centre of the X-Men that again, really does change the X-Men universe for the forceable future. The writing of the comic is great. Its very easy to read whilst setting up a world which you can be completely engrossed in and something that I really do wish Marvel do this more often, is that with every issue the artist changes. This was obviously to make sure the individual issues coming out every month were out on time, but when the five artists are as good as the ones here, its a real treat.
If anything, the only downside to this book is the final few issues. For some reason, the book goes a little bit...mental...crazy perhaps and I use didn't get it. Anyhow, it is a very minor thing that doesn't take away how great this story is.
So to cut this short, I think this book is great. Its a well written, well drawn collection that in it oversized form, looks superb in anyones collection. An essential read.
