    When “X-Men” was announced as a book that would deal with vampires in what seemed like a blatant grab to the popularity of the bloodsuckers, I'll admit I thought the book wouldn't amount to much beyond it's gimmicky grab for attention. Yet, the book blossomed slowly but surely into quite an enjoyable run thats more memorable than you'd assume at first glance, and with a bevy of talented artists all getting a swing at the interiors for the past 29 issues, it was certainly a well-executed example of why we like comics with mutants in the first place.

    I really did like Gischler's run. It wasn't epic, but it was always solid; and it's such a shame that it ends on its weakest story. It's fine. It's a "nice" two-part arc; and the fast-paced sequence where Pixie is teleporting back-and-forth, barking orders, co-ordinating a plan; I really like that. Gischler made her an awesome leader. It just wasn't enough to push this above average, sadly. Read Full Review

    Conrad's cover at least promises some fun, but then again it's also a scene that blatantly doesn't happen in this comic. (For starters, half of the characters on the cover aren't present in "X-Men" #29, which feels like some rather false advertising.) A comic that has a Skrull shuttle buzzing the Statue of Liberty should have been fun, but instead it's a publication where it feels like the creative team was resigned to not being around next month. Hopefully Brian Wood and David Lopez can kick the title into high gear; right now, this is the "X-Men" comic that time (and the readership) forgot. Read Full Review
