    The entertainment value of Generation M is a sum-of-its-parts kind of thing. Its got a couple strikes against it, but the story carries the day. The post-HoM Marvel universe has so much to explore and so many facets to examine. Generation M takes on the political and social ramifications of M Day, and cannot help but satisfy.

    Overall, Jenkins and company provide a satisfying and well crafted tale in the post M-Day chronology. This comic is not as decompressed as most Marvel titles, and it will be interesting to see what directions this book takes. Read Full Review

    Fans of the X-Men and other mutant-related titles will probably get more out of this book than casual readers like me, but its testament to Jenkins skill as a writer that he still manages to engage me in a plot and character in which I had absolutely no interest before reading this issue. Whilst I probably wont continue to read the book myself, its definitely shaping up to be one of the stronger spinoffs from the House of M event. Read Full Review

    n reactions, and it felt a bit like the artists were straining to show some melodrama. But they do a nice job on the book, and help make the story work well. Read Full Review

    It's a shame, as Im sure that this book would probably sell more as an arc in The Pulse than it will as a separate miniseries. And it would deserve to. Jenkins writes Jessica and Phil very well, the plot is quite compelling, and as mentioned above, the art team do a wonderful job. The visuals have a detailed and sumptuous look to them that is based on actual detail and texture, and not unnecessary crosshatching or overly enthusiastic rendering, and the more down-to-earth look suits the tone of the story perfectly. All in all, Generation M is a fine effort, but I cant help but feel that Marvel are blindly scuppering its chances at success. Read Full Review
