This is slowly morphing into one of the best X-books I read; Kieron Gillen is penning a tale that feels separate from the rest of the X-Men universe, while also tying directly into some of the more pronounced elements of what makes the X-Men the X-Men. The biggest positive of the book is the way the characters interact with one another; all of these heroes are new and the approach Gillen takes to them is to present them as fresh, energetic individuals. They’re all flawed, and they all feel human, which is of primary importance to the storyline. The character of Hope, too, has been masterfully carved out by Gillen, turning her from a plot device into a fully-formed leader and a true example of the sheer magnitude of the X-Men as an entity. The art by Salvador Espin feels cartoony but manages to convey a sense of atmosphere and terror in light of the issue’s events; its fluid and works well at portraying the scale of the situation. If you’ve not been reading Generation Hope, you should probably give it a try; it’s one of the most wonderfully unique X-Men books being published right now.
