A new take on the X-Men story,
This review is from: Ultimate X-Men Volume 1: Tomorrow People TPB: Tomorrow People v. 1 (Graphic Novel Pb) (Paperback)
Collecting the first few issues of the Ultimate X-Men comic, this will appeal to both long-time fans & newcomers alike. It is a great introduction to the X-Men story for people who enjoyed the movie but have never read the comics. It offers a new take on the story with some changes to character backgrounds & appearances but serves it's purpose well in retelling the early days of the X-Men. All of the familiar characters are here - Wolverine, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Storm, Xavier, Magneto, Toad & even the Sentinels. Writer Mark Millar does a great job with the storylines & Adam Kubert's artwork is excellent. With new costumes & more up to date looks, the X-Men have never looked better.If you like good story-telling, plenty of action & outstanding artwork then this book is highly reccommended.
