The story was good, but reading it, I understood what picking up a random issue of the X-Men must feel like to the average person.
I was just glad none of them were named Norman.
I thought he did a fairly good job of introducing the backstory and characters here and there without a ton of heavy-handed exposition or name captions. It wasn't nearly as confusing as trying to figure out which mouse is which in the Mice Templar V2 (if you didn't read the first volume).
