This review is for the kindle version. I bought the kindle version from the kindle daily deal. The art work, story line is great and I might give this five stars if the kindle version weren't so bad. Unlike other comics that zoom when you double tap the screen, this one does not have that feature. So unfortunately you've got to press the screen up to your face to read the writing for this comic. That said there are 6 Xmen stories in this season one comic, stories are good.

"X-Men: Season One" may seem like a retelling of Stan Lee & Jack Kirby's earliest X-Men stories; instead it's something better. It uses those early adventures as a framework to tell the tale that really matters - how a group of misfit mutants become friends first, and superheroes after. The story jumps around in between the X-Men's early fights with Magneto and others, but while there is plenty of exciting action, the story is never about the battles. It's about how those fights affect the young X-Men.

I've been a fan of the X-Men for most of my life, and particularly these original five. I especially loved Jeff Parker's take in "X-Men: First Class." Here, writer Dennis Hopeless gave me angles on their early days that I'd never seen or considered before. Even better, I got to see it all through the eyes of Jean Grey, my all time favorite superhero, and with plenty of great snarky dialogue.

And when I was finished, I handed the book to my wife, who has read only a handful of X-Men comics in her life, and went in with only a passing familiarity to most of the characters. I had almost as much fun listening to her read - laughing, cheering, quoting lines - as I'd had myself the first time! She found the story to be a perfect introduction, with everything she needed to know about the X-Men right there on the page.

If you're still not convinced, check out a few preview pages from artist Jamie McKelvie. The X-Men have never looked this good.

X-Men: Season One -

I pre-ordered this one as a sounding board to see if I would order the other Season One Marvel books, and based on this book, I pre-ordered Daredevil Season One and Spider-Man Season One. I may grab the Fantastic Four Season One if the reviews are positive.

While the book was average for me, I think my son and other younger readers will enjoy them, so my rating of four stars is skewed in that direction. I wish the flow of the book wouldn't have skipped around so much, but it was a bit of an annoyance to me.

I think this is a good starting point for younger readers that aren't aware of the X-Men. If you are an old fan (like me), it probably won't really tell you anything you didn't already know. The art was crisp and almost a little too clean, if that makes any sense. I absolutely love the cover art of this one-shot, and it looks great on my bookshelf.

The real culture shock for me came at the end of the book, where they included the (one shot?) Uncanny X-Men (2011) #1. I didn't recognize half of the team, and my old friend Colossus had undergone quite a few changes since I last saw him. Yikes.

The print (text) is so small it's hard to read, you can't adjust the font in this book. I have enjoyed ever purchase so far in the Kindle store, this book being my first disappointment. I'm familiar with the story line of this book, and the price for this book a great deal.I just don't like the small print (font size). Give it a try just to see if you are comfortable with the format. If the font size of the text is OK for you, this is a great story line.

Not going to lie, I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as I did Fantastic Four Season One. Maybe it's because I'm far more familiar with the origin story of the X-Men than I am with the Fantastic Four, but some of the updates that were made to the main cast of characters in this volume just don't seem to mesh well in my mind with what has come before or since for them. Alas, not a great addition to the Season One books, as far as I'm concerned.

Format: Hardcover
Admittedly, the X-Men franchise is by far the most convoluted and baffling comic book franchise in history with its continually rotating cast, retcons, new teams, and splinter factions. Caught in a seemingly never-ending continuity nightmare, the X-Men and its umbrella books are often written at such a level to indoctrinate a highly specialized and narrowly focused, loyal fan base as opposed to engendering open and welcome storylines that invite new audiences to join in the process. Thanks to the three main films, a spinoff focusing solely on Wolverine, and the recent reimagining of the 1960s origin story, First Class (not to mention the five-year-running Saturday morning animated series between 1992 and 1997), it is safe to assume that the majority of X fans, tangential interlopers into the Marvel Universe, and those outside comics fandom know the team's roots and are well-versed in the sometimes turgid plot developments that dictate the X-Men's world.

The timing and release of X-Men: Season One is somewhat odd, as is identifying and defining a target audience. Although the Marvel machine is nearly in full-gear for the upcoming Avengers film and hints of the rebooted Spider-Man franchise have emerged, Professor Xavier and his team are relatively inconspicuous in this media saturation. Beyond cinema, the X-universe was already relaunched in late 2011 with Uncanny X-Men #1, composed of a team that bears little to no resemblance to the one depicted by writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Jamie McKelvie here. Stranger still is that Marvel includes the first issue of the new Uncanny X-Men series as a follow-up to X-Men: Season One, and taken as a whole, the two could not be more unrelated in terms of story, concept, look, and feel.
