Mike Carey (ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR) and Chris Bachalo (UNCANNY X-MEN) take over the X-Men, or at least what's left of them! As old threats are still having their effects, new, more deadly threats emerge from the unlikeliest of places. Threats that spell doom for the X-Men. Plus, what could possibly strike terror into the heart of...Sabretooth!? And who are The Children? This is the book you've been waiting for! A perfect starting point for any new reader!

    I'm giving this issue a perfect score because I think the odds were against Carey pulling this off. Not only has he done it, but he's done it really well. Read Full Review

    For anyone who wants to get into X-Men but knows little of what has been happening, this is definitely worth the time to pick up. If you like badass characters like Wolverine, I recommend you see what Carey and Bachalo are doing. X-fans should also enjoy this story. The only comic book fans who wont like this are those who usually stick to the indies and arent in the least bit interested in super humans. They arent going to read this review, so if you are reading this, you should go look at the book. That is why I feel safe bestowing this issue with . Not everyone is going to be interested, but the art and writing is sweet, and its easy to follow. Read Full Review

    X-Men #188 was the opposite of Uncanny X-Men #475. Brubaker managed to create an interesting storyline. Plus, Brubaker crafted excellent dialogue and gave each character their own unique voice. Brubaker focused on character development and a strong foundation with a clear direction and focus on where he want to go with his story. Carey seems unfocused with no real direction in his first issue. Also, Billy Tan delivers artwork on Uncanny X-Men that is much better than what Bachalo delivers in X-Men #188. Read Full Review
