    The inaugural X-Men: Legacy Annual is important reading for anyone interested in the future of the series, and a must-read for Rogue's hardcore fans. And while it's paced nicely and features trademark strong character work from Mike Carey, it doesn't go all the way in selling the "bold new direction" convincingly. Read Full Review

    My one big complaint with "X-Men: Legacy" Annual #1, though, is that that it's a "to be continued" story. One thing I liked about most Annuals (before they all turned into big company-wide crossovers) was that you got a double-sized, all-in-one story. When I turned the page and discovered that it still wasn't over, well, I couldn't help but be disappointed. Still, that's a good sign that Carey and Acuna did their job well enough that I wanted more. It's a fun new direction for the series, and one that I can see succeeding both creatively and financially. Read Full Review

    Mike Carey and the artists do a serviceable job on this issue which effectively begins to set up the new direction for the series. As a huge fan of Rogue, I'm glad to see how well she is portrayed here, though I have my doubts about some of the other aspects of the series that are presented heremost notably the choice of villain and Daniel Acuna's ability to carry the book as the regular artist. However, the good does outweigh the bad here, making it worth a look. Read Full Review
