X-Men Regenesis: The #1's

I decided to grab the first issues of the two new X-Men ongoing series. "Uncanny" and "Wolverine and the" X-Men.

Uncanny X-Men-Kieron Gilen, Carlos Pacheco, Cam Smith, & Frank D'Armata


I am honestly liking this line-up more than Wolvie's team. Cyclops (even though he just stood around and did nothing in this issue), Storm, Colossus, Namor, Magneto, Emma Frost, Hope Summers? Its all great.
I really liked the story, I liked the art. This one jumped straight into action, which I really like. Plus I really liked the "things to come" thing from the end of it. Looks super interesting.


Well...Cyclops. And the fact that I don't know anything about who the fuck Danger is. But those are both personal things. So I'll let it slide. So I guess that, so far, I don't dislike anything about this series!

Wolverine and the X-Men-Jason Aaron, Chris Bachalo, & Tim Townsend


I'm digging the fact that we got to have some character introduction with Logan and Kitty. And plus the fact that just about every character that'll be in the series was shown.


I'm not sure how I'm feeling about the story and the art here. I mean the whole thing with the rocks is just confusing the shit out of me. Plus Bachalo has a style that I'm not exactly the biggest fan of. Though I might stick with it out of the hope that Kitty and Bobby will keep it alive!

So in the end, I'm really, really digging Cyclops' team, despite the fact that I hate Scott and don't understand anything about Danger. So I'll probably stick around through at least #2 and see what happens. Not sure about Wolvie's team, though.
