I felt the art was too simple.
P. Thomas
In fact if you buy this book JUST for the art, not for the pathetic story, still you'll get your money's worth..the art's THAT good!
Attidude
Sure there are a few extras, covers, some pieces from McGuiness' sketchbook, but it's not enough.

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.

Following his abysmal work on Wolverine, I didn't anticipate ever reading another competent--let alone good--Jeph Loeb comic book again. This volume, Avengers: X-Sanction, was billed as a kind of prequel to the Avengers vs. X-Men crossover from a few years back. It was in this context, and also because this features one of my favorite characters (Cable), that I decided to grit my teeth and bear reading this.

I was broadsided by the realization that this is actually a decent story. As I turned the pages, I kept expecting that Loeb would derail the whole enterprise on a whim, but by the time I finished issue #4, I gasped and concluded the following: Jeph Loeb has produced an average comic.

He has written a story that in fact has more to do with Cable than with the Avengers, one that hearkens back to Loeb's run on Cable's (now cancelled) title from the mid-1990s. Loeb reintroduces Blaquesmith, a face from that era that readers have not seen for quite some time. The vibe feels very retro, but Loeb's characterizations come across as organic. For all of my criticism, Loeb was a writer who really did "get" Cable--which should really come as no surprise since, after Fabian Nicieza, Loeb was one of the early architects in defining the character. Here Loeb incorporates his take on Cable with recent developments in the character's history--his "death" at the end of the Second Coming crossover, and his relationship with Hope, his "daughter" in recent years.
