Comic Review: New X-Men Volume 1 Ultimate Collection
Taking reign of the X-Men World, Grant Morrison (The Filth, The Invisibles) starts the series completely from scratch. Along with illustrator Franky Quitely (Batman And Robin, All Star Superman) a new adventure begins with Marvel’s New X-Men.
Mutant kind faces one their worst days yet. In one fell swop the whole of Genosha is destroyed, killing 16 million mutants all at once. The X-Men are left to pick up the pieces and figure out who is behind such a despicable act. While this is happening Wolverine and Cyclopes are being held captive. The woman’s name is Ms. Nova and she has a single thought in her mind–to kill the X-Men.
Grant Morrison is known for being extremely innovative in whatever he touches and this is no different. By leaving behind the old story lines he is able to take the series in any direction he wants to go. He gives the X-Men a much more modern and fresh take on who they are. With the artwork of Frank Quitely this is breathtaking ride that should not be missed.
