LOCKE, OLD MAN LOGAN, BISHOP, ARCHANGEL, FANDOM, ROGUE and GAMBIT will attempt to save a world that hates and fears them. From blockbuster writer CHARLES SOLE and joined by a roster of superstar artists beginning with JIM CHEUNG.

Amazon.com: Astonishing X-Men: Gifted (Audible Audio Edition): Peter David, Richard Rohan, full cast, Marvel, Marvel: Audible Audiobooks Skip to main content They're what got me into comics I the 90s (the cartoon and reading Legacy) but I've been out of the X loop for a while.

I'm pretty sure Astonishing still operates as a stand-alone series. Greg PAK brings back what has been missing from x-comics for a while.

Yeah, get started with #44 onward as AOH mentioned. Warren Ellis also did a decent job, though nowhere near When's level.

@Gambit1024 : I pretty sure it is, because everything that happened during Joss When's run is canon. It kind of bored me to be honest, and I hated the costume they gave storm in it.

I've read all four paper trade from 1# all to kitty pride going a “special trip with an object”. @xxCellPhoneGirlxx said: I consider Joss When's run on AstonishingX-Men a must- read for X fans.

@xxCellPhoneGirlxx said:I consider Joss When's run on AstonishingX-Men a must- read for X fans. I know just a little about the Shadow King from the Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon put out by Nickelodeon a few years back, so I'm interested in learning more about the comic version.

Also need to read up some on Angle, because I don't know as much about him as I thought I did. I'm so glad to see Marvel treating the X-Men right after so many years of trying to kill them off. I'm not sure how intrigued I am by the plot, but a good X-Men story should be character driven, so that's ok.

My biggest “WTF happened” questions surround Warren at this point. Still, it started better than X-Men : Gold and there isn't even a whiff of Spencer's nonsense.

The very first issue is full of action and a slight overload of information. There are so many things happening all at once, and I absolutely loved it! I've always been intrigued by Locke, so it was interesting to see how she would be portrayed in this comic.

Once I started these, I read them all pretty quickly. The very first issue is full of action and a slight overload of information.

There are so many things happening all at once, and I absolutely loved it! I've always been intrigued by Locke, so it was interesting to see how she would be portrayed in this comic. I enjoy the banter between Rogue and Gambit (which is why I'm also reading their comic), and I don't often see Mystique and Fandom.

If I'm not mistaken, he's from the future and has the ability to jump through time. This knowledge allows him to scan events as they happen and cross-reference them against future outcomes.

As for this series, it's a literal mindfuck (because they go to the Astral Plane). I never knew what was actually happening to the characters, and it gets pretty Trippe.

At the end of the seventh issue, something really shady happens, and now I don't know whether to believe it's real. I cannot believe he willingly makes a certain decision, but I was enjoying his time spent with Mystique.

They would be an unusual couple, and I think it'd make a wonderful comic! Oh great, Old Man Logan is slowing pulling back into the world of Marvel and mutants.

But I jumped right in and this story started off fast. The Shadow King is attacking psychics around the world, and when he gets to the X-Man Locke, she summons help from the likes of Rogue, Gambit, Bishop, Old Man Logan, Fandom, and Mystique.

Oh, and someone else might be hanging around on the edges. The book is OK, but it's clearly only half the story, and there's a different artist on each issue, so keep that in mind if you pick this one up. I hate what they've done to Fandom in this series. By all means, I absolutely love characters choice and the interaction.

Dialogue is so back and forth for no reason, and at one point it goes “are you sure?” across four pages. Outstanding issue. Former members of the X-Men respond to a distress call from Locke and discover The Shadow King wishes for them to come to him in the Astral Plane.

I'd rather go back and re- read Joss When's run. When put me at ease by dedicating a few pages at the beginning of the book to highlight some of the important things that had happened over the years in the X-universe.

The X-Men are people whose lives are drastically altered by extraordinary circumstance and their story is characterized by the very humanity they personify in their quest for acceptance. As a standalone volume to someone unfamiliar with the X-Men, this extract of the ongoing saga would still be an exceptional reading experience: the artwork is an evolutionary development from innovators of the form such as Möbius, and the narrative has a depth of characterization one would not expect in a comic.

With a total of twenty-four issues, the 2005 debut of The AstonishingX-Men feels like you're viewing one season of an American television show which is perfectly understandable, seeing as its writer Joss When is also the one that brought us TV gems like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse and Angel. This gorgeous omnibus edition collects all issues of When's legendary run, comprised of Cyclops, Emma Frost, Kitty Pride, Wolverine, Beast and Colossus.

This gorgeous omnibus edition collects all issues of When's legendary run, comprised of Cyclops, Emma Frost, Kitty Pride, Wolverine, Beast and Colossus.

Truly engaging, endlessly creative and shockingly sublime in the right places, The AstonishingX-Men has to be the BEST X-MEN SERIES I've read this year (with Jeff Parker's X-Men : First Class being the close second). I would consider this as a rather a fine example of a writing that works phenomenally when it comes to telling a really engaging superhero story with a balance between plot and character developments. Like I said, it feels like the first season of a favorite show, filled with stellar moments in the plot construction and the character arcs that make it float and stay on course.

Both riveting in execution of story and delivering some of the most emotionally meaningful moments about characters (especially two female superheroes), Joss When's The AstonishingX-Men is something I will recommend readily to a fan of the X-Men films but has yet to read them in comics. This is a great starting piece to ease newbies in while at the same time pleasing the long-time crowd of fans.

In Danger, the X-Men faces the threat of their most formidable foe yet; a sentient being who has lived in the Xavier School and watched them fight during combat simulation and is therefore more than informed regarding their weaknesses. For Torn, Emma Frost (a reformed villainies) commits the unthinkable, fracturing her teammates and certain important relationships within their group.

The last arc, Unbreakable, ties together all three previous plot stories with its own primary focus on the alien planet Break world which, according to some prophecy, is destined to be destroyed by an X-Man. The conclusion of that arc continues to the Giant-Size edition whose ending was the most unexpected and stomach-churning pay-off I have ever been subjected to.

That being said, When performed consistently in his writing for each issue, holding back no punches and making sure that each blow hurts enough to give you a lingering ache. But like most of When's work, he knows how to take characters to places, and then he breaks and molds them into something better and enthralling, even if it's fragmented with the kind of holes you can never mend.

When's first issue began with seeing Kitty Pride again as she walks back into the Xavier School for the Gifted, bags in hand but looking as if she has never left the place at all. Inquisitive, selfless but clever, and brave to a goddamn fault, Kitty always becomes the star of a story when a writer really knows how to commit her stellar characterization on paper.

I thought she had an impressive run so far, taking on the responsibility of becoming an X-Man head-on even if she maintained that “being an X-Man does not always suit me”. In spite of whatever insecurities she had about her skills and role in the team, she never lets it get to her and performs under pressure quite creatively and adamantly.

In Claremont's X-Men : Forever, she accidentally phased through Wolverine while a mutant got them stuck and when she separated from him, he got a piece of his adamantine claw on her knuckle. The way she dealt with that physical transformation was so riveting to watch because at her core, Kitty remains the resourceful and compassionate kid she is through all of it.

In her first appearance after the Dark Phoenix Saga, thirteen-year old Kitty is inexperienced in so many ways but was eager to learn and prove herself. It's such a shame that the movies don't put her front and center (alongside Wolverine if they must insist, considering Logan and Kitty have a good brother-sister thing going on anyway), especially when they cast a talented actress like Ellen Page for the role.

Meanwhile, the White Queen has always fascinated me since her very first appearance in the Dark Phoenix storyline as one of the formidable henchmen of the Hellfire Club. It's worth noting that she and Kitty were introduced together especially here in When's tale where the two are obviously at odds with each other.

The reason why she brought Kitty into the fold in the first place (as revealed in issue #18), is because Emma is losing her mind because parasitic Cassandra Nova hijacked her telepathically, and she knew Kitty would be the only one who won't hesitate to kill her. That's a powerful thing to entrust someone with, and it didn't help her already temperamental relationship with Kitty either.

Still, I think, in a twisted sort of way, Kitty began respecting Emma and what she can do after that incident. With little empathy and people skills, Emma can be so easy to dislike and cast aside as a woman forever trapped in the villain role, but When had composed her here in such a validating perspective where she's finally vulnerable and in love with a man she feels she doesn't deserve.

Cyclops was allowed to truly shine as he rediscovers his purpose as the leader of the team while Colossus takes on fate itself and tries to bend it to his own will. Meanwhile, we have Beast, who gets to contemplate about his mutation and whether he wants to go through another painful physical transformation as Wolverine finds yet another young girl to become a promising protégé to train.

The variety of villains for this series has served their respective purposes, short-lived as they may be whole a few were certainly impactful, and they only enriched the tapestry that When has painstakingly and with great love care weaved for us readers. There was even a motion comics series because everyone apparently came to an agreement that this is meant to be shown visually in another medium because it's just that damn riveting.

As I finish this review, I literally can 't think of a single disappointing thing about this series. Well, except for the Giant-Size's ending concerning Kitty Pride but even that wasn't enough to lessen my adoration for the entirety of the series.

Overall, Joss When's The AstonishingX-Men has accomplished what it set out to do when it started: to astonish the world. A perfect mixture of sustainable action, relentless twist and turns and resonant character insights and relationships, this is a series that you will be a fool not to start reading at once.

The majority agrees that this is just bloody brilliant and a worthy addition to any fan's X-Men collection. It can be tricky writing for the X-Men, especially these days, with tracking so many characters and trying to keep it fresh and interesting, but When does a skillful job here in this 25-issue run that he had with the heroes. Whedon shows a real love for the characters here, and the book features some of the most creative sequences I've seen in an X-Me.

It can be tricky writing for the X-Men, especially these days, with tracking so many characters and trying to keep it fresh and interesting, but When does a skillful job here in this 25-issue run that he had with the heroes. Whedon shows a real love for the characters here, and the book features some of the most creative sequences I've seen in an X-Men tale. When takes these well-known characters, consolidates all of their best attributes, and lets it all fly in this epic story.

He not only has a great sensitivity to each X-Man's personality, but he takes their specific powers and explores all the possible ways to showcase them, leading to massively entertaining sequences. One great example is the way the book shows how powerful skilled psychics can be, especially in the amazing sequence in the third volume, Torn, when the mansion is attacked by the Hellfire Club and telepathically manipulated by Cassandra Nova and Masonic Teenage Warhead.

You can also tell the love that When (as with many other writers) has for Kitty Pride (Shadow cat). One of the reasons why the X-Men are some of my favorite heroes to read is because of the specificity of their individual powers, so I had a blast with all these little moments.

And the book also features one of the coolest character entrances ever with the appearance of Colossus. Growing up in the 90s, comics weren't really my thing, so my love of superheroes came from the cartoons such as Bruce Time's Batman: The Animated Series and of course X-Men.

Following the release of the average, but somewhat disappointing prequel of the X-Men film franchise, when I really start getting into comics, I was recommended AstonishingX-Men by Buffy creator Joss When and Planetary artist John Cassady. Years later, I got the omnibus, which covers the entire run which is so far the Growing up in the 90s, comics weren't really my thing, so my love of superheroes came from the cartoons such as Bruce Time's Batman: The Animated Series and of course X-Men.

Following the release of the average, but somewhat disappointing prequel of the X-Men film franchise, when I really start getting into comics, I was recommended AstonishingX-Men by Buffy creator Joss When and Planetary artist John Cassady. Following Grant Morrison's New X-Men, When takes what Morrison had established in the X-world such as its characters and creates four distinctive story arcs in which When and Cassady make these characters their own.

When Kitty Pride returns to the X-Mansion as both teacher and X-Man, a mutant cure has been found which puts pressure on the mutant kind as well as some members of the X-Men, while an evil alien comes to Earth and wreaks havoc. While the plot of the mutant cure inspired X-Men : The Last Stand, what Astonishing achieves at more is the character dynamics through When's witty dialogue as the heroic mutants are in conflict with one another, whether it is about the cure or the teamwork they have to provide.

With “Gifted” as well as the other story arcs, When doesn't take things too seriously, and like his cinematic Avengers, the writer finds humor in places you don't expect, with dialogue that very subtly references pop culture like Harry Potter. Not perfect by any means, as some ideas (such as in the second arc “Dangerous”, which deals with artificial intelligence) are over-emphasized so at times the story lacks action.

However, whatever flaws this series has been minor due to the fun interactions by the X-Men and their young students. As we get to see a dysfunctional but moving romance between the team leader Cyclops and the former villains Emma Frost, while Wolverine isn't always the center of things, but does get his cool moments, the true star of the series is Kitty Pride (who inspired When's own creation of Buffy Summers) as she is the youngest of the X-Men but manages to stand up (and phases) against even a bitch like Emma Frost.

At its most moving moments, is the relationship between Kitty and Colossus and despite their differences, together they found love. Accompanying the great writing by When, is John Cassady's beautiful artwork which mostly allows wide panels that give the action a very cinematic look, with special plaudits to colorist Laura Martin.

However, once reading the series and look at the realistic illustrations of the characters and the epic locations, you can forgive a delay or two as you are instantly in love with the work of Mr Cassady. With this omnibus, you get a set of pages known as X-Men 101” which goes through the whole history of the X-Men since their introduction in 1963; as well as the humorous emails between When and the Marvel publishers.

As a fan of the X-Men from the 90s TV animated series and the current film franchise, AstonishingX-Men by Joss When and John Cassady was for me, a great introduction to the heroic mutants in comic book form. If you were a fan of When's spectacularly fun extravaganza of The Avengers, this book was instant proof that the writer is Marvel's golden boy.

A wonderful depiction of the X-folks from Buffy's When and Wizard magazine's Cassady. I believe any fan of the AstonishingX-Men line of comics will enjoy this colorful omnibus regardless whether you've read any individual stories.

The plot is on the whole typical X-Men brilliance with sacrifices, psychic twists, mixed agendas and a threat to the world. And the artwork, which was lush and vibrant, really helped characterize them and bring them to life.

He's only the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and the director/writer of the upcoming Avengers film. I'd already read the 'Dangerous' arc (which ties into everything else) but yet was impressed by how I could enjoy that stand alone and yet it linked back into a far more grand and sweeping plot.

If you enjoy your X-Men graphic novels with some color and interesting stories read this. This was a great read, I spread it out over a week, but it can certainly be done in a day's time.

This was a great read, I spread it out over a week, but it can certainly be done in a day's time. The art was beautifully crisp and colorful and the perfect combination to the feel of the story.

The choices for villains were excellent, and I loved how strong and vulnerable the X-Men were throughout; the chance for failure was there and that's what grounded the story for me. The Omnibus has become scarce nowadays, and I was luck to grab a copy at a reasonable price; if you can manage to find one, I'd the oversized trim is worth the extra money over the paperback; especially for the Giant Size comic that closes out this series.

Being a huge X-Men and When fan, it was almost a crime that I hadn’t read his run on X-Men. When’s writing contains what you’d expect: witty and clever dialogue, strong conflicts and real emotion.

He’s complemented by Cassady’s stunning art which perfectly captures the script, and he creates some show-stopping panels. Being a huge X-Men and When fan, it was almost a crime that I hadn’t read his run on X-Men.

When's dialogue, as well as it works on the page, is obviously performable, even if performance makes the X-gang even more of a Buffy/Firefly clone than they were I recently “reread” this run via a skim of the 4-book version accompanied by a marathon of the motion comic series on Netflix, which is actually a pretty enjoyable -- not to mention strict -- adaptation of the source material, once you get past the stilted motion-comickyness of it all (and after a few episodes, you really do.) )So the Whedon-ness of the characters and stories nearly overwhelm this series, and if it weren't for the fact that, as mentioned, he's essentially always been kind of writing X-Men anyway, that might be a real problem.

The characters feel lived-in, and Cassady's art is pure, smooth, cinematic eye-candy. I'd argue that the four arcs that comprise the book don't hang together all that well (despite the constant narrative voice that insists they do), and don't have much sense of scope.

Two of the arcs take six issues each for only about several hours of storyworld-time, and there's just not much sense that the universe has been fleshed out past the rooms the scenes take place in -- it feels almost like a play, in which the immediacy of what happens on stage is a trade-off for the blank abstraction of the world beyond. Even the action just feels like a series of set pieces with a fill-in monster at a fill-in superhero locale, and the characterization is post-modern enough that someone (often Shadow cat) will always provide a quip to undercut any hint of dramatic intent.

But the aura of threat feels real and agonizing throughout, even when the villains behind that threat are less than believable -- probably because, as with all of When's work, our heroes feel flawed and raw and human, and their struggles are ultimately both painful and poignant. Great humor, excellent story arcs, questionable leaders.

X-Men and When just makes too much sense! So, imagine my surprise when the opening story arc is a rebirth storyline!!! Great humor, excellent story arcs, questionable leaders.

X-Men and When just makes too much sense! So, imagine my surprise when the opening story arc is a rebirth storyline!!! Umm. Yes Scott Summers is a China leader with massive insecurity issues.

So why did I actually give this book four stars (decently high rating)? The story is a little X-Paint By Numbers (oh noes, some alien race wants to destroy Earth) but the dialogue and execution is fantastic (what I expected from When).

Summers becomes somewhat less China and kinda cool later, and it introduces the Armor character (someone I knew very little of prior to reading this). Extras are a bit limited but what I did like is that there was a brief introduction section... kind of mini Wikipedia entry as to what's gone on with the X-Men leading up to this book.

I read about this run somewhere (I want to say DC Girls Kicking Ass) and I love most of what Joss When has done. I was up until 4 am reading it. There is a great intro in the beginning that catches you up on the history of the X-Men to this point, which was really useful b/c I am clueless about Emma Frost, the destruction of Kenosha and the virus.

A small group of X-men reform the superhero team and run the school. I am a huge fan of Kitty Pride and Colossus separately so the two of them together was definitely awesome.

This collection started off great, went a bit flat, then killed it at the end. Because there are some handy-dandy pages in the beginning that briefly tell and illustrate what has happened prior to this.

Their run also aspires to what many hero titles miss: We know superhuman struggle with paradoxically mundane anxieties, what's important is why they bother helping normal people at all.

If established superheroes can be made new again, in short, this is how it's done. The volume opens with a brief, coherent summary of the last 40-odd years of X-Men history before jumping into a white-knuckle re-assembly of the team thanks to preceding deaths/betrayals. After roughly a third of the book things are rolling again (i.e., approaching disaster), with the X-Men struggling to mesh with other super-teams, S.H.I.E.L.D., and awful approval ratings after their last big party in Manhattan (thanks to Magneto).

By the last third, however, various master plans and bad guys poking their heads along the way collide in an apocalyptic scenario for not one, but two worlds. Goo dreads decided to have a fit right when I pressed submit for my review of this book, and I'm disinclined to write another.

This set of stories manages to stay character-driven while keeping the planetary, even galactic, stakes high and avoids melodrama by having superheroes face normal problems: grief, love, isolation, fear, and crisis of identity.

When assumes his readers are intelligent and doesn't feel the need to say what can easily be shown and inferred. Whatever the case, it works better and keeping Cassady on for the entirety of the run rather than alternating between artists definitely helped build a synergy that makes this a great read.

I think it also helped tremendously that John Cassady was the artist throughout, which gave the storyline a much better consistency than Morrison's. I even gave this (in its four-volume paperback format) to a good friend, who then let her (pre-teen) daughter read it, and everyone was happy.

Thankfully, this Omnibus collection of Joss When's AstonishingX-Men did a fantastic job of catching me up. To top it off, John Cassidy provides fantastic artwork I don't like starting a story from somewhere in the middle.

I can 't recommend this highly enough to fans of fantasy, science fiction, and superheroes. Very rarely does a comic book rile me up emotionally, much less a superhero one, but Joss When's story arc with my absolute favorite characters made me gasp a few times and I might have even teared up at the resolve.

There seems to be what should have been 'major' character developments that turn out to be insubstantial in future comics . After Hank runs some tests on his samples, he discovers Jean Grey's DNA is apparently a part of 'the Cure' designed to make mutants human.

Kitty both hacks into and phases through computer systems to mess with the alarms. Instead of following 'legal recourse' to gain access to the facility, the X-Men take the 'easy way out' by breaking the law.

I think it interesting that at times SHIELD is said to be an 'international peace-keeping force' and other times it is said to be American-only . I realize the 'ends justifies the means' and that experiments were being performed on mutant cadavers is the justification for why they did what they did, but it still was a weak reason for breaking the law.

Hank's reaction to Beseech's studying and dissecting mutant corpses seemed extremely hypocritical to me. He has no problem studying the dead remains of other species, especially if they are alien.

He has even run tests on samples from mutants to find out of some procedure, some formula, will work. CSI labs study corpses to better help them when it comes to a mysterious death investigation.

Hank McCoy is UPSET and that means what Beseech is doing is somehow wrong. It was amusing to me how Cyclops said they do not support criminals and then Nick Fury threw Emma Frost into his face.

Even Moreno than Professor Xavier, she is willing to mentally alter people's minds if she is angry, offended, or unhappy with them. I am sure the goal is to show how she has become a 'good guy/gal', but her continual abusing of her powers against those weaker than herself is rather disturbing on so many levels.

She is a bully, a truly a despicable person and is constantly portrayed as being shallow, catty, vain, amoral, selfish, immoral, judgmental, unjust, vengeful, snotty, arrogant, and all-around not a very nice person. I do not understand why she has remained on the team for as long as she has, because she has shown very little, if any, character development that would be considered 'positive' or 'for the greater good' on a regular basis.

I realize the Avengers are known for taking on criminals and helping them turn a new leaf in the public eye. Of course, this only works if the authors want it to work; otherwise, the former villains return to their larcenous ways .

He did a phenomenal job explaining how and why Colossus was still alive after 'dying' to save mutant-kind from the Legacy Virus. He possibly murders three guards after Kitty frees him, yet there are no repercussions for his actions.

I guess they do touch on his internal issues occasionally throughout the overall storyline, but it is more Kitty wondering if she had pushed him too hard after discovering he was alive, considering the ordeal he has endured. I will say this: what When did with Colossus really set up a scene later in the comics involving Cyclops, but I never saw it coming.

Or Kitty's comment after Colossus did a 'fast ball special' with her . Emma's comment about how she has “the best body that money can buy, a scintillating wit,” and still “ranks below a corpse” amongst the two most prominent male members of the X-Men community was priceless.

Not only was Danger a great concept, but “she” has remained a force to be reckoned with in the comics themselves. I liked how her confidence grew over the course of the story, such that she was bickering with Logan to his face without backing down (view spoiler) .

There was also the right amount of byplay, one liners, 'science', science-fiction, excitement, and character development throughout the entire run. I thought it interesting that Cassandra Nova briefly made an appearance in the comics.

That point occurs when Cassandra Nova is trying to utilize Emma Frost to take over Armor's mind and body; Kitty is ready to execute Emma Frost before the transfer occurs. It was all in her head and Kitty can remember everything that 'happened' in that 'three-year cycles' in vivid recall.

I am sure a lot of it had to do with the modified Sh'air tech that Xavier used in conjunction with 'mutant-tech' and 'Earth-tech,' but I was always jealous of the things the X-Men had versus the Avengers . The 'stuff' introduced in this series strongly reminded me of Claremont's run when he took over the X-Men in the mid- to late-1970s.

SWORD was a great idea, and there was some beautiful artwork of the space station. By that, I mean she was constantly in Emma's face about her decisions and behavior .

I think Logan could be a more successful leader, but he does not want the position or responsibility that goes with it. (view spoiler) [It is kind of funny, because as I read the comics, I wondered if Emma Frost was mind-controlling Scott.

Then I read the comment in the comics Emma makes about Kitty wondering the very same thing. I understand some of this is probably to 'show' the changes that occurred after Jean's death , having been mind-controlled by Apocalypse, how things have 'fallen apart' for the X-Men community, and how this has impacted Scott, making him question himself and doubt himself more.

Emma's ripping on Scott as he was trying to motivate her on the subconscious level was actually kind of funny in a hysterically-so sort-of-way. I think she managed to express the consensus of how pathetic he had become in everybody's eyes, including the reader's.

Then he goes off the deep-end, becomes a complete whole, and kills Professor Xavier , but that is a whole 'other series altogether (hide spoiler)] Perhaps that is what Josh When was striving for in this series: a group of individuals who, despite their failings, are working for the greater good.

The problem is that they often let their emotions get in the way of their decisions, making them less altruistic than they claim to be. It was a shame that the epiphany Cyclops had in the prose novel did not occur in the comics.

Scott's epiphany in the novelization made him less of a 'monster'/jerk as opposed to how he was portrayed in the comics. Before I close, I will say how happy I was when the X-Men left Earth because of how badly they were treating regular humans.

So it was nice to see aliens from a planet bent on Earth's destruction taking it on the chin for a while. Both races are trying to survive , both had issues with mutants.

However, whereas regular humans had found a way to peaceably survive with mutants, Break world wanted to kill everybody. When is very sparse with his words throughout the course of the story, relying upon the artwork to get the point across.

It is an excellent blending of prose and art, considering how many picture frames do not have any words, any descriptions, on them. The reader is free to interpret the facial expressions, the pictures, to continue the storyline when the written words 'stop' for a moment.

On a side note, I am somewhat disgusted with Peter David for altering the prose novel like he did. He adds a lot of crap involving 'today's issues' into his prose novel that was not in the comics.

I have loved the X-Men ever since I was a little kid, and that appreciation has only strengthened as I have realized how complex and important these stories actually are. Strength, compassion, otherness, and unity are all major tenants of an X-Men story, and When captures them perfectly. Above all else, I found the Danger storyline to be the best in this run on the Merry Mutants.

Create an uncomfortable tension that the team must process before moving forward. I appreciate that When cut down on the core cast of characters to focus so much on these few.

As much as I love Gambit, Storm, or Rogue, a problem many X-Writers have (especially in the movie world) is overloading the audience with cameos and pop-ins to the point of exhaustion. The characters are humanized and show a lot of their flaws, emotions and fears throughout the entire arch.

I'd highly encourage anyone to read this, but there is a little of background you need before going into this arch (or you might be a little confused or not feel the total impact of everything that is going on).

The way he envisioned the x-men didn't line up with my imagination, especially his portrayal of their faces (although their expressions are spot on).

I remember in one of the earlier trades Scott looked extremely chubby in the face, yet had a very fit body...how does that work? A couple of years ago I did some research to figure out what comics I needed to read if I wanted to dive into the X-men series.

This Christmas I finally tracked it down using ILL...and found myself with a book that weighed more than Fox. This book starts with more recent stories of X-men --- after Xavier and Magneto have left, but before it starts the actual story, it gives some background SA couple of years ago I did some research to figure out what comics I needed to read if I wanted to dive into the X-men series.

This Christmas I finally tracked it down using ILL...and found myself with a book that weighed more than Fox. The stories are a bit confusing, but it is interesting, and I am glad I finally got to read some Marvel....The Fantastic Four do appear, along with S.H.I.E.L.D.

This is the X-Men run that got be interested in the characters again after years of too many titles and complicated continuity. When and Cassidy's run is a perfect jumping on point for anyone interested in the X-Men.

The story arcs are action packed and are presented like a blockbuster movie. He had a difficult task to follow up what Grant Morrison had done on New X-Men (which I also enjoyed) and he delivers.

Like Morrison's run, I enjoy this more and more with each re- read and recommend this for anyone remotely interested in X-Men comics.
