Jason Aaron is a fantastic writer. His Wolverine run was hugely entertaining and made me a big fan. When he moved from Wolverine to this title, iI had to follow. The story and art in this book do not disappoint (although it's sometimes hard to tell exactly what's happening in Bachalo's action sequences because of the close ups and angles he chooses to use). Aaron's Story is a lot of fun, with great characterizations, a good plot, a nice climax, and a bunch of situational and character driven humor. Bachalo's character designs are nice, and the art in the fourth issue by Nick Bradshaw is very nice as well. Both artists also benefit from great coloring.

My ONLY complaint regarding this volume is the small number of issues contained. Four issues is barely a collection, and twenty dollars (the list price, which is what I paid) is really, really pushing it for four issues of material. I bought this book because I like Aaron's recent work so much and because the book looked good and I'd heard good things, but four issues for twenty bucks is not a decent deal. I won't continue to collect the series if the collections keep being so small. Fortunately on amazon the book can be picked up at a discount (and it is worth reading), but come on Marvel. A twenty dollar book should contain at least six issues.

I enjoyed reading this story a lot. I laughed several times, and I felt like clapping when Wolverine and his team confronted the He'll Fire Club at the end--I just wish the book was longer.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am not the first reviwer to mention this on here, but Amazon's product description on this book is incorrect. The product info says this contains issues 1-7 but it really only contains issues #1-4. This hardcover book is NOT over-sized or anything special but yet I paid over $13 for it, meaning that Marvel is charging graphic novel buyers over $3.25 an issue. This seems like a ripoff considering I can usually get the latest Batman hardvoer graphic novels at about $1.50 and issue...but enough about Marvel gouging its graphic novel buyers out of their money...let's talk about the contents of the book (which is what my rating is based on). The first 3 issue story arc is a good introduction to some of the X-Men characters I hadn't seen in a while because I only recently started reading X-Men again when Jason Aaron started writing it (Schism) because I like his run on Wolverine so far. The first story arc is good but not great but I think it serves its purpose as an introduction to the series. The artwork in the first 3 issues by Chris Bachalo kind of bothered me. It sometimes appeared sloppy to me and a little too cartoony at times. I also had problems being able to tell what was going on in some of the action sequences due to the artwork. I liked issue 4 a lot. There is a different artist on issue 4. Although issue 4 appears to be setup for the next story arc, I must say it has one hell of a good cliffhanger, which means I will be picking up volume 2, despite the highl price on the 4 issue graphic novel. I would buy more Marvel books if they weren't so expensive...and that's all I have to say about that.

Format: Hardcover
If you're reading this then you've probably checked out some of the other reviews. You'll know this book is amazing, the art is fantastic, the writing top notch, the characters are hilarious, the book is action packed. But what all the other reviews mention as well is the cost. You're being charged a 6 issue collection price and getting 4 issues, I understand that this book is a collection of the first arc, and the first arc of the series is only 4 issues but seriously Marvel, how can you charge so much for so little.

Typically for a hardcover you're going to pay about 8 to 9 cents per page, sometimes you pay a lot less, but typically it's around that. This is a gross overcharge, hopefully we'll see an Omnibus come out in the future and it will be priced fairly.

OK, let me start by saying this: if you haven't yet read the set-up book for this new series (X-Men: Schism - also by Jason Aaron), you're really going to be wondering what the heck is going on. Even having read it, I was still left wondering about a few things in this book.

This book is the brain-child of Jason Aaron. Aaron has been writing Wolverine comics for some time, now, and I would say that - overall - he's done an OK job of it. There have been a few stories, here and there, that were a bit too weird for me, and he's far from the best Wolverine writer who's ever lifted the pen, but he was fine. This book - though it prominently features Wolverine's name in the title in an attempt to sell more copies - is definitely a team book, however.

The premise of the book is that Wolverine and a few of his closest X-Men palls are rebuilding and re-opening the old school. No longer "Xavier's School for Gifted Children," the school now bears the title of "The Jean Grey School for Higher Learning." The school is still a haven for mutants, but now Wolverine is headmaster and Kitty Pride is headmistress. Also on staff are Beast (vice-principal), Gambit, Rachel Grey, Rogue, Iceman (all instructors), and Cannonball, Chamber, Husk, Karma (all assistant staff members), and Frenzy, Doop and Toad.
