I think maybe i was expecting too much.
kurtis moore
I don't think I would recommend this book unless you are only interested in getting ready for Avengers vs. X-men.
P. Thomas
This becomes incredibly useless and tiring when the narrator is in fact the main character of the book.

Avengers X-Sanction by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness is a difficult product to review. In terms of story there's really not much here it's almost more of a lead in to the AVX miniseries than the actual Avengers vs X-Men event because it really is all action. There are a couple interesting developments (particulaly at the end) but all in all its really just an excuse to see Cable and the Avengers tear into one another. With an artist like McGuinness that's really not a bad thing, but be warned if you are not a fan of McGuiness don't waste your time with this book. As for myself I find his style quite enjoyable, he's easily one of the industries top artists for superhero throwdowns and as such his work really shines here. If that were all there was to it I'd give the book 4 out of 5 stars, unfortunatley Marvel's added another layer of dissapointment.

Marvel's become increasingly skimpy on the collections, 4 issues isn't much material it makes even an oversized hardcover look dinky. Charging $19.99 for Uncanny X-Force or Wolverine and the X-Men seems less than reasonable to me, charging $24.99 for X-Sanction, unforgivable. Marvel is clearly just trying to cash in on some of their most popular characters and event fever by adding the extra 5 bucks. It wouldn't be so bad if there was more material but there's actually less, considering McGuiness' penchant for the 2-page spread you're really only looking at about 70 pages of story most of which are light on exposition. Sure there are a few extras, covers, some pieces from McGuiness' sketchbook, but it's not enough. It would not be at all unusual to blow through this entire collection in less than 30 minutes. I got my hardcover for $10 thanks to a pricing error form amazon and even then I'm not sure I got my money's worth.

Format: Hardcover
Cable goes back in time from the future to stop the Avengers from doing something that will result in the death of his adopted daughter Hope - to save Hope, and the future of mutant-kind, he must kill the Avengers. Here's the whole "story": Cable fights Captain America. Cable fights Iron Man. Cable fights Red Hulk.

I won't say what happens in the end but it renders everything that went before it completely pointless. There is a revelation regarding Hope and the extent of her powers but it's not enough to justify spending 4 issues (the length of the book - the rest is fluffed out with covers and more covers and sketches, yawn) basically having Cable fighting (and defeating!) most of the Avengers.

"X-Sanction" has an interesting premise but is let down by an uninspired script that has the costumed heroes battering at each other until the pages run out revealing a distinct lack of ideas from Loeb. It foreshadows the upcoming "Avengers Vs X-Men" storyline but doesn't contribute enough to prevent you from understanding that overall arc so "X-Sanction" is definitely missable.

After Jeph Loeb came back to Marvel from writing for DC there was dip in the quality of his work. I loved Batman: Hush and the first three volumes of Superman/Batman, as well as some of his older work like Batman: The Long Halloween, Spider-Man Blue, Daredevil Yellow and Hulk Grey. I used to consider myself a fan of Jeph Loeb but everything he does now days sucks, including this book. I say it's the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" of comics because like that movie it's all about the the visuals and less about the story. It's fast paced, loud, and over the top. There are parts in the book where there are about 3 words per page because it's all action. Someone said Cable acts like a madman, and that is correct. You don't really get to see the Cable you grew so fondly of after (or before) Messiah CompleX. I felt the art was too simple. I enjoyed Ed McGuinness' art back at DC, or even on Hulk, much more than in this story.
I don't think I would recommend this book unless you are only interested in getting ready for Avengers vs. X-men.

It was a hit! My son has been a fan of the series and his face lit up when he opened it.

i really enjoy anything that has cable, avengers and x-men in it...but that said i really didn't like the way cable was portrayed in this story but there were elements that were interesting like the sentinel armor for iron man... whats with that. I think maybe i was expecting too much. Its a good read but not really needed for any cohesion between story arcs.
