Format: Hardcover
This oversized hardcover collection collects issues 1-35, 38-42 and Annual 1. Issues 36 and 37 can be found in the X-Men: Battle of the Atom collection and were omitted because the issues serve the Battle of the Atom crossover and would have been pointless here.

Another epic X-Men collection is here as writer Jason Aaron leaves his mark on the X-verse. Aaron's prior work at Marvel involved more solo act "heroes" in a more gritty style like the Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Wolverine. His solo Wolverine run is very good but very heavy as well as it is a very character driven focused series that puts a man of Logan's talents and situations through the wringer. Aaron decided to take this anti-hero and go against the grain and go with a more humorous tone. The series is all the better for it. It has it's serious side, action and adventure, and heartfelt moments but it is a heck of a lot of fun. Aaron's run is probably the closest in tone to Grant Morrison's awesome New X-Men epic.

The whole setup for the series follows a huge fallout between Wolverine and Cyclops stemming from the X-Men: Schism event and Wolvie going back to the original location of Xavier's school in New York and setting up a new one. Wolverine has made huge changes in his views on life and one of those is to follow in Xavier's footsteps by fighting for a world for peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans while providing a safe haven for young mutants. He gets fellow X-Men: Beast, Iceman, Rachel Grey, and Kitty Pyrde to name a few, to leave Cyclops' camp of Utopia off of the coast of San Francisco to help Logan realize this dream.

Aaron, like Morrison's run, acknowledges that this place is a school and gives focus to a wide variety of students.

I've bought a lot of omnibi and this is easily one of the best (if not the best). It is definitely one of the most consistent and consistently good that I've ever read. The entire book (all 40+ issues) is written by Jason Aaron, and the writing is really well done. The story progresses nicely and the characters are very believable and defined. The art is very good throughout as well: Nick Bradshaw and Chris Bachalo handle most of the art and are brilliant. A few other artists also contribute and all are good and stick to the template Bradshaw and Bachalo establish.

This book has great action, great characters, great humor, great stories and great heart. On top of that, it also feels like a cohesive whole, and there are no weak parts or weak stories or weak artists, so the whole thing is very fun to read.

Very much five stars from me and highly worth reading.

Excellent collection of an amazing run. Do not continue the new run with Jason Latour as the writer. Loses the sense created in Jason Aaron's run, much in part due to Latour having to write through multiple crappy Marvel major crossover events.

Wolverine and the X-Men is a classic in the making. For me, comparable to the Morrison run in New X-Men, it's a groundbreaking title that really deserved the omnibus treatment.

Marvel once again nailed it regarding the production of this one: solid sewn binding, stunning cover underneath the dustcover, paper stock really good and fair price.

As for the content, see and delight yourself with the odd and fun situations that Jason Aaron puts our beloved mutants on. In addition,the choices of artists couldn't be better: Chris Bachalo's (one of my favorites) art is outstanding, Nick Bradshaw's Art Adams style is great and Ramon Perez along Jorge Molina really shinewith their sharp pencils.

This purchase is mandatory to every X-fan, as well to anyone who want to treat yourself with a top notch material.

Amazon, as usual, delivered it on time. My only complaint is that they could send heavy materials like this with a more consistent package, particularly for those who lives in other countries.

As a huge xmen fan Ive never really been a fan of Wolverine. (Cyclops fan) I can see way others like him. He is the best at what he does. Problem is he is everywhere! When this series began and ended I heard nothing but good things about the series. So when this book came out I decided to give it a shot. Got to say I can see why everyone loves it! Good story, good art, just good everything! The only downside is that 10 of these issues are set during the AvX storyline. Now this book is great on its own but to see the dark side of Wolverine and to see what hes up to when not at the school, check out Uncanny Xforce omnibus.

I had never read anything by Jason Aaron until I read this collection, and since having read it, I've read as many comics that he's written as I can find. Fantastic writing, really solid art, and a super fun ride with Wolverine running the Jean Grey School for Mutants (but let's be honest, Quentin Quire/Kid Omega really steals the show in this one).

Strongly recommended. A very enjoyable read and at omnibus quality and pricing. Far better than most X-men related books in the modern era. A testament to this book's quality is that it's creative team and issue numbering survived the launch of Marvel Now. Starting after X-men's Schism and running all the way to the stellar Avenger's event Infinity, this book was a great trip. Finally please ignore the relaunched title of the same name after Aaron left it.
