Bill Blaze reviewed Uncanny X-Men #1 Nov 15, 2018
7.5

I want to like this but it was so confusing. There is just so much going on. As a jumping on point this will be a rough read. The art is ok, like a B, but could've been so much better, especially for one of Marvel's premier titles. It's like Marvel used their B artists to draw this X-men B roster book. It really brought down the experience for me.

For 8 bucks, I was hoping for one big story, got several short confusing ones. There are too many characters, too many plot lines, and too many forgettable villains. The art is fine, but a little plain and Bagley-esque for each of the multiple artists. I'm disappointed.

The issue is ok. But I'm not really digging the artwork. It's too cartoonish and overly exaggerated. Stick limbs and stale facial expressions, I can go on. It honestly ruins it for me, though.

Heroes in Crisis. The new brainchild, of equally loved and hated, Tom King starts here. Some folks will love it unconditionally for "its character deconstruction" and others will hate it with a burning passion "because people don't talk like that". As for me, I'm leaning towards the first group. I enjoyed it. It's not without flaws but overal more
