Beyond "2000 AD", Ewins was a co-founding editor of "Deadline" magazine, and co-pencilled and inked the hugely acclaimed "Skreemer "series, which he co-created with writer Peter Milligan.

For those of you not having any previous experience with the X-Statix team ,fear not. Everything you need to know is here. You need to know absolutely nothing about marvel continuinty ,major events etc to enjoy this hefty volume. Just start reading and everything shall be explained as the story unfolds. You could also buy this OMNIBUS just for the art alone.Mike Allred always tries hard to be innovative and here is a fine example of how combinig pop art and comic art can be visually astounding! If you love Mike Allred's art ,I guess you have already ordered this volume.If, on the other hand, you have never experienced Allred's fantastic ,futuristic ,fabulous (and other f-words ,except one you potty mouths :p)now it's time to correct this mistake.
Long story ,short:Buy this volume.It's one of the best volumes in the OMNIBUS line.
There's so much humor, violence, and randomness that you will be completely thrown as to what comes next. Yet, for some reason you will find yourself incredibly attached to many of the characters, many of whom will die seemingly needlessly. There were so many times when I thought, "I cannot believe he killed off that character that I was so attached to," only to keep reading and fall in love with the very next few ushered into the team.
X-Statix is a constantly changing, media and corporation driven superteam whose members are so incredibly fun, unique, and addicting to read about in an X-Marvel Universe that has nearly run it's gauntlet of fresh ideas. It's a solid change of pace that I would recommend for newcomers to comics and veterans alike.
DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS SERIES!
It's the perfect companion piece to Morrison/Quitely's X-Men run. A stand alone, cohesive work filled with charmingly heart felt cynicism and a deep love of comics.
Pete Milligan's story is also fantastic. I honestly didn't see the end coming, and was sad when I turned that last page to find out there wasn't any more to enjoy.
So, in the final analysis, I recommend this to just about anyone who likes comics. Gorgeous art, engaging story, and a concept that STILL feels kind of ahead of it's time.

90's era comics aren't my cup of tea. We're talking about a time when Superman was dead, Bat-Man crippled and Peter Parker was a clone. Bad times. Read morePublished on January 28, 2014 by Rick
