Uncanny X-Men #535

Finally.

I was a huge fan of the X-Men. I grew up on the classic Claremont run. I loved these characters. After he left things weren't the same. I drifted away. Morrison and Whedon brought me back in but somehow none of the folks following up to their work could keep me engaged. I've tried the first couple issues of every creative team since and it's always fallen flat for me.

Until Gillen.

From the opening moments with Kitty, Peter and Namor; to Nemisis's Nazi Killer dialogue; to Agent Brand's interaction with Unit, this issue just clicked with me. For the first time in ages *this* felt like Uncanny X-Men instead of the softcore porn we've endured for 35 issues or so. We saw hints of this during the Quarintine arch and now it's clear the improvement was largely due to Gillen.

Let me simply sum up my feelings on the issue:

Welcome to the X-Men, Keiron Gillen! I hope you survive the experience.

Story: 9.5
Art: 8.0
Overall: 8.75

Well Land drew a large portion of it, so maybe it was.

Mostly though it was garbage of the worst calibre on par with Chuck Austen's run for pure awfulness.

It was better than most X-Men.

And Land is going to draw Gillen's run.

How would me being an X-men fanboy be dependent on you being a fraction fanboy? That doesn't seem logical.

If liking the run automatically makes me a fanboy, rather than just having an opinion, then hating it also makes you a fanboy.

I've come to the conclusion that it was actually worse than Austen's run

I think the plan here is to "fix" kitty quickly, then say goodbye to breakworld

RUview -

This book was incredibly average.

The sad part of that statement is that this means it was 100% better than the last 3+ years of Uncanny X-Men.

Story - 5
Art - 5
Total - 5

Newsflash, Punchy. We all post on a internet comic book forum. We're all fanboys whether we admit it or not.
