Don't even bother trying to grit your teeth and get through this one or the next three paperbacks, all written by "beloved" former X-men Chris Claremont. Unless you like having a cast of characters who all talk the same way, sometime using British expressions even if they aren't British (Age of Apocalypse Sabertooth using "Bloody" as an expression) or never have talked that way, or if you like not having a good idea of what happened unless you pick up some other paperback outside of the series, or you are in love with Psylocke as much as Mr. Claremont is. It sucks. For the sake of completion, I figured I'd read them and they wouldn't be too bad. Should have follwed my gut and skipped them.

Go straight to The Point of No Return written by Jeff Parker. It's under the Exiles title again and unfortunately, is the last of the Exiles. At least as far as we can tell. Too bad for Parker that he has to do what he can to try to clean up some continuity and story lines left over from Claremont, but he does it well and you don't really need to know much about them. It has a whole new cast from Claremont's run and he never splits the team up in different missions or realities, which happens the entire time Claremont writes it. And if you read some of the older Exiles title, or from the start of the Exiles title, you'll see some familiar faces and be glad for it.

As a *HUGE* fan of the Exiles series, I recently picked up this trade for the New Exiles which collects issues #1-7. I must say that I was extremely disappointed. Veteran X-Men writer Chris Claremont does a poor job with the writing which is very wooden and dialogue which is stiff, robotic, and feels forced. Additionally, if you're not up on the story arcs prior to the New Exiles series, you will be COMPLETELY lost as to what's going on here. I never knew what the heck was ever going on while reading the first issue in this trade. Like the other reviewer before me, I advise people NOT to pick up this TPB at all: it stinks.
