I've made no secret about this fact, I've never been an "X-Men" guy. I like The Wolverine, and I LOVE The Beast, but other than that.......I can take or leave them. My favorite X-Men title ever was the original X-Factor, which features the original X-Men as mutant-hunting government agents. Anyway, enough about that. Let's take a look at Uncanny X-Men #1:
The Bad: There's not that much wrong with this comic. If I had to get picky, I'd say that Bachalo's art on the action scenes are a little muddled and hard to follow. Also, the book has an interesting premise, but it's gonna have to do some pretty amazing things to make me keep up with it. It's a good premise, but it has the potential to get REALLY old REALLY fast.
The Verdict: It's a good first issue with some nice revelations and surprises. Whether it can keep it up or not will be something to watch for.
