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.Read more ›
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.
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.
