    I'm not quite sold on the cover to this issue. While I recognize that it's trying to sell that idea that Logan is not part of this bright and shiny new world, I can't help but feel this idea could have been presented in a more visually dramatic manner. Still, the interior art does a lovely job when it comes to selling the readers this new world (from the quiet reveal of the opening pages, to the big splashy visual that closes the issue) and serves to give readers a good look at the sheer scope of the task that Wolverine is faced with. There's also a solid bit of action in the middle of the issue, that presents Warbird's new role with a visually exciting bit of action.

    No, in the end House of M is an entertaining if not particularly inspiring read. Die hard Avengers or X-Men fans will likely snatch it up in droves, but it remains to be seen if the series will live up to the hype. After all it doesnt take a mutant telepath to see that Marvel is more concerned with dollar signs than drama. Read Full Review
