March 3, 2009 11:32 am Atleast this crossover springs from an actual plot point and not some shoehorned money grab. This has the potential to be very good, so I'm definitely along for the ride. I did drop T-bolts a few months ago because I don't want much to do with Dark Reign, but I'll buy the T-bolts issues for this.
February 25, 2009 2:24 pm Dillon just didn't fit with this book. I couldn't stand him on this. Deodato was perfect, though. Not sure about Braithwaite, but he's gotta be better than Paquette.

Rogue doesn't really do it for me, but I trust Carey can find a way to make this story interesting. The last issue was pretty good, but I'm baffled by how much lower this sells than Uncanny. Is the book's title? X-men Legacy seems like the title for a mini-series or somethin'.

February 17, 2009 9:10 am Seriously, how can anyone even consider dropping this book after last month? What more could you possibly want?
February 17, 2009 9:07 am I can say that I'm enjoying the book, but it's not great. Not yet, anyway. I think my major problem stems from the art. I don't particularly care for Land or Dodson. I wish they could've put Stephano Casselli on this book rather than Secret Warriors.
February 10, 2009 7:47 am Remember back when this was the hottest book out? Now it's got 6 pulls. Crazy how things change.
February 10, 2009 7:45 am All the covers have been that bad. What a bad book this turned out to be. It just never lived up to the original premise. Didn't help that it had pretty poor art throughout.
February 3, 2009 7:35 am No thanks. They haven't done anything to make me interested in this team. Nick Fury on his own hasn't been enough to sell comics, so why would that change now? Because he's got a bunch of no-names alongside him? Oh wait, he's always got a bunch of no-names alongside him. It's starting to look like the New Avengers will be the primary team to go against the Dark Avengers(as it should be), so why should I care about this book at all?

January 21, 2009 11:33 am Still loving this book. It should be outselling Uncanny. I imagine it's sales will pump up once they change the name back to just "X-men". For some reason X-men: Legacy sounds like a limited series and not a regular.
