Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’ve been on the fence from the start, so this series has one more issue to keep me around. This is a fine and interesting book, but I really do not have much interest in Legion as a character.

  2. I really hate the internet negativity especially in comics fan. But man this is Garbage the xmen got me started collecting comics 20 years ago. And man this is the first ongoing xmen series that I’ve just said forget it too.

  3. I don’t read this, nor do I have any interest, but this comic has some of the best and most intriguing covers!

  4. Bummed about the artist change. This book is just….bizarre fun though. I’m really enjoying it. It’s like some wacky indie book where the X-Men occasionally show up. Dense read too. You get your $3.00 worth.

  5. This comic is great. But it isn’t like a lot of other things, and it challenges a lot of X-men legends and ideas. It is a challenging book that doesn’t fit the same old thing, so it isn’t shocking some people are having problems with it. The great works always do.

    • Yeah, this was the best issue yet. I’m liking All New X-Men and Wolverine and The X-Men, but I feel confident in saying that THIS is the most original X-book we’ve seen since Morrison’s New X-Men (Note: I’ve not read most of Uncanny X-Force yet).

    • I hope that people give it a chance. It is taking a lot of cool chances with the character, so I think people will eventually come around.

  6. Ok, now that I’ve read this, I’m not bummed about the artist change. I liked Tan Eng Huat, but Jorge Molina is a great fit as well.

    This book is very quietly one of the best things Marvel is putting out. I grabbed #1 on a whim, and I’m really glad I did, because subsequent issues have been top of the stack books for me. I’ve been excited about this every time it’s come out since.

  7. I really wish more people would pull this. It’s doing great things with Legion (who I never cared about before), it’s different, and it’s quietly hilarious. I love the challenges to the standard X-Men ideals and the way Legion makes you think about everything you’ve just accepted about them in the past.

    I laugh every time I read it, too. This is quickly turning out to be one of my favorite books. And this one was definitely the best yet. C’mon, “Good night, Frodo.”??? Amazing.

    I don’t get everyone’s beef with the art…I think it’s eminently suited to this book and the story. Seriously, people really need to pull this. Just try it, particularly at 2.99. You get your money’s worth.

  8. I’m loving this book………to be honest, I’ve never been a gigantic X-Men fan. I’ve probably been the most critical on X-Men stories compared to everything else I’ve ever read……..but the character, the writing, and the art all just click for me.

    And I’ll say it. I love the hair.

  9. Quietly becoming an excellent book. It’s sort of the outsiders perspective on all this X drama. The libertarian view, third party so to speak. I’m into it. I’m not into the way Spurrrier wrote Beast and Storm though. Maybe its just because I read it after an issue of All-New. But every issue is better than the next . Legion and his head are really starting to be driven home and are Spurrier is giving a great voice to him and it.
