Read it last night. It was a fine comic. Wish I knew a bit more about what's going on in the X world, but it was an enjoyable read regardless.

Looking forward to reading issue # 2 tonight.

All I have to say to anyone who wants a feel of the X-World is pick up the Essential X-Men trades and Pick up Morrison's New X-Men, that's all you need.

I guess you did care for this comic then?

I disagree. In fact, I think these new releases of X-men by Bru, Carey, and Yost/Kyle are superior to most if not all of Claremont's work. Morrison's New X-men is great, but only for about the first half. I've been reading the Essentials in order, and while good, sometimes they are laughably bad.

But what about when those stories are read and you want more? What's wrong with a comic like the new XForce?

So what was it about this, Pete, that made you like it so much? I was curious about it, but since I already got Cable #1 I figured I'd be too much of a fish outta water reading both of these with no clue as to what's going on in the X-Books.

I'm not judging the quality of anything, I'm merely saying if you want to FIND OUT more about the X-World you need to read Claremont's stuff, it's the building blocks of the whole X-Universe. And I quite enjoyed the first 100 or so Claremont issues . . . then it starts to taper off.

and no offense to Brubaker, but I'm not a big fan of his X-Men, it's picked up as of late, but it was kinda boring for awhile, the Sh'iar storyline had alot of potential but it never really got anywhere to me.


EDIT: Cary and Kyle/Yost have done fantastic work on the X-Franchises, but if you are a new reader, it would help to know a little x-history.

That's not what I meant, I'm saying that if you want to know more about the x-universe, start at the beginning. I loved X-Force #1. You can read anything you like after that.

Ah. It's the "That's all you need" part that misled me. Sorry.

Nah, it's my bad. I was referring to one particular thing he mentioned, about wishing he knew more about the X-Verse or something.

Ah, I understand now. Not so much the x verse in its entirety, just what's been going on in the last 2 or 3 years.

And, Marc, I enjoyed this issue because it's all black ops violent weirdness. And the art is stellar.

Just read issues 1 and 2 and I loved it. The fact that Bastion is up and operative again gave me a fanboy erection.
