The little bit with Quire was awesome. I did like that the students themselves decided they didnt want to be soldiers.

I really enjoyed this series. I didn't like the prequel so much, even less after reading the actual Schism story. I liked the way the fight played out, which was cool by the way, and the ending worked great.

I didn't hate the ending as much as I thought I would.

i'm glad that the new x-men kids seemed to all decide to go with Wolverine.

For some reason, I'm reminded of this panel when wondering how Wolverine will deal with being the headmaster of a school.

With this ending, I think we can safely say this is one of the best X-Men event stories ever, it was just so, so good. Just like last issue, the fight between Wolverine and Cyclops was just brutal, you could feel every hit, and you could tell that every punch mattered, that things would never be the same even if the Sentinel is defeated. Which it was, in a 5 page wordless sequence which really worked and showed Adam Kubert’s skills as an expert storyteller. I did feel that Kubert’s work got a little rushed and sketchy towards the end, but it didn’t effect the story. The conversation between Scott and Logan at the end was very interesting, I was surprised by how civil they were towards each other, I expected the Schism to be more violent than it was. Overall this was a fantastic story, which really made the reader think and hopefully consider both sides of what is a complex issue. Unfortunately I think some people have just sided with Wolverine because they like him more, but it doesn’t matter. I’ll certainly be buying both Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine & The X-Men, and can’t wait to see how Jason Aaron (and Kieron Gillen) are taking the X-Men forward, I haven’t been this excited for X-comics since Grant Morrison.

I like that better. It would be silly for the teams to hate each other for no reason.

I agree. It looks as if a lot of the teams are going to fall somewhere in the middle as well and not take clear-cut sides.

Most surprising story in a while. Before #1 I expected a story that would be throttled by editorial mandates that would force Aaron to split the team with little time for build-up and he wrote just about the best X-Men story in this decade. And yeah, I mean right there with Morrison run.

Every issue of Schism kept raising the bar even higher.

I'm still a month behind but flipped through my copy... Did anyone else think the art was kind of bad? Looked pretty rough and rushed.

It still works Sd...as things fall apart and the fallout, I was okay with the looser approach to the art...then again...had I had a tighter example to compare to, I guess I wouldnt' be as bias.
