Review Group Week #298: Wolverine and the X-Men #1

This week marks the return of Wolverine to the X-books! Finally, we get that long-awaited fourteenth ongoing series featuring the character that everyone just can't get enough of!

Wolverine and the X-Men #1
as selected by False Prophet

Written by JASON AARON
Pencils & Cover by CHRIS BACHALO
Regenesis Gold Variant by NICK BRADSHAW
Variant Cover by FRANK CHO
Blank Variant Cover also available
Spinning directly out of X-MEN: SCHISM, the X-Men are split in two. In the oversized debut issue of the new ongoing flagship X-series, Wolverine takes one half of the X-Men back to Westchester to start over again. But the new Hellfire Club outlast its first day ? Join Marvel Architect Jason Aaron (X-MEN: SCHISM, WOLVERINE) and legendary X-Artist Chris Bachalo (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, GENERATION X) for a brand new action-packed take on the X-Men that will set a new standard for the Children of the Atom.

Stephen Day has next week's pick

If you would like to join the group, it's easy. Just post a review and I'll add you to the member's list. As long as you stay active, eventually it will be your turn to make a pick.

With $4 comics becoming the norm, the economy being what it is and the growing popularity of mail order services the Review Group recognizes that it's becoming harder and harder to commit to participating each and every week. As long as you can post one review per calendar month you will stay in the member's list. It doesn't matter if you post your review the week of it's release or if you post it later. There is no such thing as a "late" review.

The only request I make is that if you don't plan on posting a review or if you're going to be posting late is that you drop a note in the thread so that I can keep track of who is active and who isn't. The Spreadsheet of Doom is thorough, but it can't read your mind.


Image
Comics are to be scored on a scale from 1-10. 1 being suck, 10 being a damn good comic. Beyond that, there's no right or wrong.

Image
If it's your week, you must announce your selection by 5pm EST the day Diamond releases it's shipping list. If you do not announce your pick at that time, I will add a poll to the thread that will remain open until 12pm EST so that the group can make the selection for that week. (If you're seriously MIA, I'll probably put the poll up sooner) To ensure that you know it's your week, I will PM you when Midtown's list goes live on Thursdays. Also you'd better keep in mind the Amber Atoms rule, if your pick isn't reviewed by 2 or more people you will be exiled from the Group for 1 year. Our definition of a single issue comic is limited to comics listed at $3.99 or lower, anything above that is off limits. Also, to prevent utter filth being chosen deliberately, the Weird Worlds Rule has also gone into affect. Any book scoring a new all-time low (2.12 as of today) will not count as a miss if people wisely choose not to purchase it. Any poor soul who did review the book will earn a free pass on a book of their choice.

Before we even start I'd like to whine about the cheesy looking new cover branding for the X books. It's going to look incredibly dated very very soon. That said the book looks like it'll be great!

I don't know why but this thread just "feels" better and more inviting. Sort of like a new pair of underwear or drunk coeds vagina.

Is there a format? A grade you give it?

I was going to say that's the best looking new trade dress Marvel has done in ages. It's like they finally shelled out for professionals instead of handing it off to the interns.

I'm with Zero. That cover is horrible and really feels dated, but I'm still looking forward to the book.

No format, score needs to be between 1 and 10.

It's certainly better than Siege or that embarrassing photoshop job that Fear Itself had, but that font is going to age as well as Superman's hair in the 90's has. Marvel really don't have much success with trade design aside from I quite liked the look of Secret Warriors and the very basic MAX trim.

Hickman did SW, that's why it didn't suck.

Just the fact that you're talking about how the W&XM trade will age instead of how it looks now is a big improvement over recent Marvel designs. Something like Siege was miles ahead of the beveling hackery that was Wolverine Origins...
