"BREAKING POINT" When the X-Men left the militaristic alien Breakworld, its political structure was reduced to ashes. It didn't stay that way forever. Now a warship is crossing the gulf of space, with a mission that will strike the lives of star-crossed lovers Colossus and Kitty Pryde with all the force of a meteor. Join them as they discover what the vessel them means for them, mutantkind and the rest of the Earth. All courtesy of KIERON GILLEN and TERRY DODSON!  Part 1 (of 4).

    It's a new day for the Uncanny X-Men as Kieron Gillen hits the ground running with a fun and well-drawn tale that recalls the great days of Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men. I probably speak for a lot of readers out there when I say that I want Uncanny X-Men to be a really awesome read month-after-month and it looks like Gillen has a chance to make that happen.

    Despite some minor gripes, I'm ecstatic to say that Uncanny X-Men #535 is worth the hype that Marvel has given it and feels more like a sequel to the beloved Whedon and John Cassaday run than a continuation of anything from the past year. That's a good thing. Read Full Review

    Gillen is off to a fantastic start with his "Uncanny X-Men" run, although anyone that read "S.W.O.R.D." or has been reading "Generation Hope" will find that to be no real surprise. Read Full Review

    X-Men fans, I think this is the issue you've been waiting for. The series is finally seeming to take a fully positive turn, and I'm really wanting to see what happens next. This issue gets a 4/5 from me. It'd be more, but there were times in the issue where I felt detached from the story because I have NO CLUE about anything dealing with Breakworld, and I think that Gillen could have given some more background material on that. But it's still a solid entry that X-Fans will love. Read Full Review
