BONUS REVIEW by John "Doc" Schaefer


If you were a big fan of the X-men during the 1990's into the early 2000's, this will be the book for you. This hodge podge band of former X-men have been brought together by a summons from Psylocke to fight a long thought dead villain. And to give them a (not currently being used) battlefield, they must venture into the psychic plane. And while Soule's writing is well done and Cheung's pencils are lovely, I again find myself asking the question that keeps popping up year after year. That question is why? Why do we need another new X-men title? Why are Old Man Logan and Gambit back? The roster is definitely based on fan-favorite X-men. You want to really get me jazzed over a X-men book? Let's clean a little house. Lose a couple of titles, and then at the end of a current storyline filter in a few of these pages to get the ball rolling. Surprises like that get me to buy a book. Don't just start up a new title because you've got a storyline with potential. All that means to me, is that after the first story arc is over and collected, sales are going to drop off and I'm going to lose interest.

I give it 5 out of 10 Grahams
