X-Cutioner's song was one of the first things I read on entering the rich Marvel Comics universe as a 9-10 year old. I lived in France at the time so read the French versions but having re-engaged with comics a few years ago I had to own this collection.

I love it now almost as much as I did then - a good 17 years ago - with the added bonus of nostalgia. The art is okay - unlike other reviewers Andy Kubert was always a favourite of mine at the time and Greg Capullo (whose work here is still quite rough) has been my favourite comic book artist for many years now bar, perhaps, Todd McFarlane.

X-Cutioner's song has a GREAT villain, Stryfe, my personal favourite Apocalypse has quite a lot of stage time, Sinister pulls the strings from behind the scenes and you have the X-Men, X-Factor and X-Force joining forces - for the most part - to overcome the evil villain. The plot has many threads, quite a few theatres of action with a great collaboration between Wolvie, Cable and Bishop and it was good to see Madrox again and the early nineties x-costumes.

I must admit crossovers were a pain when growing up as they cost me most of my allowance but X-Cutioner's song provided me with hour upon hour of enjoyable escapism and still provides much of that today.

Maybe new collectors or readers should look at more recent collections but I do think that this was a really good period for the x-titles but, of course, I'm biased.

Four stars and a half.

The x-cutioners song is probably the best crossover for the x-men in the 90's for years this event left an impact not only on the lives of the x-men but for mutant kind itself.
The story is about stryfe a mad man from the future who plans to destroy the x-teams and cable, starting with proffesor x. This x-over includes all three x-teams x-factor, x-force and the x-men. This i a great story with brilliant art work. It not only has some great fight sequences but some great emetional events.
This storyline left a very big repercution namely the Legacy Virus which would be the biggest threat to mutant kind during the 90's.

This crossover has it all! X-Force v.s. X-Men, Cable v.s. Bishop and Wolverine, Apocalyps teaming with the X-Men. Cyclops and Jean kidnapped! Professor X assasinated by Cable? Sinister's deadly plan. Stryfe releasing the Legacy Virus, and a final showdown that is well worth the price!

This is a great book! It's a compilation of about 17 comic books from the pages of UXM, X-MEN, X-FACTOR, and X-FORCE. The writing is excellent throughout the whole thing and the art is great too! With 3 villiains, Stryfe, Apocalypse, and Mr. Sinister, this TPB is jam-packed with villainy, heroism, and more! For X-men fans, you can't miss it!

Stryfe is possibly the perfect strategist.making the x-teams fight each other,taking the DR away from En Sabah Nur,framing cable,using the mutant liberation front as his expendable footsoldiers.it just goes on and on with twist and turns and it doesn't stop until the end.but i must also say this book is not for the the beginners.for beginners u would have to research the marvel universe as far back as 1989 to undersatnd the full scope of this graphic novel.and for those x-nuts out there who think this books is not good,just ask yourself wouldn't u love to destroy everybody who has wrong u at all points of your life? if the answer is yes than buy the "x-cutioner's song" this second.thank u for your time
