    Once again, Prelude to Schism would have been a fine oversized one-shot. But by expanding such a limited concept to four issues, Jenkins just isn't able to provide the individual chapters with the meaty content they needed. Read Full Review

    As I said at the start of the review, the phrase "waste of paper" is one I don't deploy lightly, and I'm not sure it really applies here. Certainly, there's some merit to be found, if only in the art. I have absolutely no trouble, however, describing this series as a waste of readers' time and money. It takes four issues to do nothing interesting, say nothing interesting, and " I suspect " will ultimately fail to have any impact on "Schism" (or any other X-Men comic, for that matter). Trust me when I say you can give this one a wide berth and miss absolutely nothing worth seeing. Read Full Review
