3.0 out of 5 stars Well, ..., 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: X-Men: Primer (Paperback)
There has been a lot of fuss about this book. I hesitated a long time to give it a try. Wood's first take on the X-Men (Vol. 3 #30-37) had not convinced me before, and I found it bold by Marvel to collect a three-issue arc with a fill-in issue and a reprint (that has only recently been reprinted in the "Wolverine & Jubilee" Trade) in a pricey volume. The book contains #1-4 of Brian Wood's new X-Men title (the adjective-less one) with art by Olivier Coipel (#1-3) and David Lopez (#4). It reprints Jubilee's first appearance in Uncanny X-Men #244 (Claremont/Silvestri).
I have to say that the first 3 issues are intriguing with the mystery of Jubilee's baby, a new villain and splendid art. The fill-in is not overwhelming, the bickering between Storm and Rachel maybe a little out of character. Jason Aaron in "Wolverine & the X-Men" does this better. Maybe I will give the book one more try when the Dodsons take over the art with #7 (#5-6 will be reprinted in "Battle of the Atom"), but all in all this one is hyped in my humble opinion. If I want to read a good all-female team book, I prefer the (alas! cancelled) Fearless Defenders, if I want fun X-Men I prefer Aaron's take on them. This one is just so so ok.
