About the Author

Grant Morrison has authored too many bestselling graphic novels to count. Batman: Arkham Asylum, Doom Patrol, Animal Farm, Flex Mentallo and the Invisibles are just a few of the books with which Morrison has established himself as one of the modern masters of the medium.

In a short amount of time he established himself as a dynamic force in the world of comic books, bringing a new vitality to the industry. As an artist, Silvestri was instrumental in the success of such popular Marvel comic book properties as Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine, and went on to build a fan following unmatched by few other creators.
Silvestri's success in the publishing world has expanded into new areas of entertainment, including animation, action figures, live action television, features, interactive media, and international licensing.

I'm not a huge afficionado of Morrison's work; before reading his run on New X-Men I'd only ever been exposed to a few issues of his Doom Patrol run, which I found excessively manic and unhinged. I really liked this though; it's easily the best run on the X-Men since Byrne/Claremont, and it rivals and surpasses their work at times. I didn't really see a big dip in quality in these issues. They seemed perfectly consistent with what had come before, and Here Comes Tomorrow is a great climax and resolution to all the disparate threads that had come to a head throughout his run, and it could have been a great place to build on if Marvel hadn't decided to retcon the whole thing into oblivion. The biggest hit to these issues is actually the loss of Frank Quitely, who completely drops out in these issues, but at least there's no more terrible Igor Kordey art.

Oh yeah! The third trade for Grant Morrison's New X-Men is great!

Humans vs Mutants! So much hate! And in the middle there's the students at Xavier's School for the Gifted.

I can't tell you anything of the book, because I would spoiler it for you. If you've been following the story from the begining of the first trade, then I can tell you that, finishing the story is the right way to go.

Tough spot for the X-Dudes, no doubt of that. And Manhattan will feel rage of... KICK, the drug!

The art is way better than Volume 2. Phil Jimenez and Marc Silvestri's art is the best so far, and makes the experience even cooler than it is.

I give this book 4.5 stars

Ps: Beak Rules!!!!!!!!

Well first off let me say that Grant Morrison is one of my favorite writers -- I loved his Zenith and Doom Patrol, and the beginning of New X-Men ( vol 1 ) was really excellent. But vol 2 started to get bogged down ( mostly by the art ) and by vol 3, the ending was just serviceable. I hate to say it, but this is the second time I've seen Morrison do this ( his start and middle on Doom Patrol were awesome, but by the end it was just pretty much incomprehensible ). The "rescue" attempt with the "Here Comes Tomorrow" story-line was promising, but it was way, way too short. It should have been extended by another couple of issues at the very least, to fully flesh out the characters and story. I used to like Chris Bachalo's art on Shade the Changing Man, but he was really the wrong artist to kick-off the first two issues of this compilation. After that, even the nice work by Phil Jimenez couldn't rescue it because the whole story line just collapsed, and I lost interest. Now here's a "What If" -- what if Frank Quitely had done the art on the entire run? Or the Xorn saga hadn't ended up being just smoke and mirrors ? That would have been something!

Morrison's run on Xmen is fantastic. He understands and appreciates many of the characters and fleshes out their personalities well. The only character that Morrison might have researched a tad more is Beast. In the first volume, Beast is not nearly the fuzzy blue intellectual brimming with witicisms that we all know and love. Morrison does, however, correct this by the later issues. At first, New Xmen with Morrison is a bit of a slow start, but following the storyline through to the end, you see that it was well worth it. Intricate plot lines are followed through to their logical conclusions if you read the entirety of Morrison's run. A necessary read for lovers of Whedon's "Astonishing Xmen", as many of the plot devices referred to there (such as Cassandra Nova; Emma's secondary mutation) start here. Worth reading through to the end.

I really wasn't expecting much to vol 3, having delved into vol 1 and 2 and not been blown away. Vol 3 sorts of brings closure to some ideas and characters introduced in Vol 1 and 2 but there is no wow factor. I don't know why other reviewers are saying that there are good and bad artists working on this project. All the art here is bad, reminiscent of Howard Chaykin on a bad day, period.

This caps off a series-changing run on the X-Men by Grant Morrison, and is really a must-have for any X-Men fan. You'll get the origins of Fantomex explained here, as well as how they tie in to Wolverine's own history, which redefines what the Weapon X program is. We also get the culmination of things that have been building up for a while, as Magneto reveals himself (not really a spoiler since he's on the cover of the book) and the X-Men are hardly in a position to fight back.

The art by Chris Bachallo in the Fantomex story and by Mark Silvestri in the final three issues are amazing, though the stuff in between was nowhere near up to that caliber.

There were a few things that kept this from a 5-star rating though. I didn't really like the way they portrayed Magneto's personality, and I thought the "flash-forward" at the end was a little more drawn out and complex than it needed to be.

Altogether, I'd recommend buying this book for any X-Men fan though. Just make sure you've read the first two volumes first.
