The X-Men books are on their way back to being 100% great again! Huzzah!
While we have to wait a few months until Kieron Gillen makes his long
needed takeover of the main Uncanny X-Men title, the X-line has shown signs of improvement across the board. One of those signs was the debut of Victor Gischler’s X-Men
series, which combines fun adventures and that right amount of
kookiness and hokeyness that make Marvel’s Merry Mutants so enjoyable. X-Men #7
starts a completely new story which centers around all of the members
performing more visible acts of heroism in an effort to not only get
back to their roots, but to improve their Q Rating with the public (not
exaggerating). This leads a team of fan favorites head to New York City
to investigate a disturbance in the sewers, which in turn leads the team
to come head-to-head with Special Guest Star Spider-Man! Chris Bachalo
takes over art duties here, and not only is his kinetic style always a
perfect fit for a book like this, it’s also a clever decision to put him
on this story. Remember the intense “Shed” story in Amazing Spider-Man
that featured The Lizard as the main villain? Well, it looks like he’s
going to be the villain in this as well, making it a pseudo-sequel to
“Shed”. No heady background is needed to read this fun series. Pick it
up now.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent
