All-New X-Men #1 Review


Cover - 5/5

Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Layout - 5/5

Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?



Verdict - 5

What I think: Being an X-Men fan for years I was excited to see this book. The wrap-around cover is great and the alternate covers are nice as well. I really love the art style, the picture of Beast when he is talking to his past self is awesome. Everything in this issue flowed well, from the coloring and the layout to the overall flow of the story. There are a few new developments in this issue, including Cyclops team searching for new mutants to join his cause, which appears to be more of an anarchist than liberation. It also focuses on Beasts 2nd mutation and his fear that he is digressing. In the end we see Beast go back to the past to bring the original 5 X-Men to the present to talk some sense into Scott. It's going to be an exciting ride and I can't wait for the next issue.
