Overall, I will say this book was only decent. If at all.
X-men issue number 58 I could have done without.
Number 59 was what I'd considered decent.
Number 60 basically made me want to

I know I have given good reviews in the past for the Ultimate X-Men series, even though I've seen quite a few people bash Vaughan's writing, but this one definitely did a number on what has been a good series thus far.

I have no problem with Vaughan, none at all. As far as writing is concerned, I go wit...more

Ultimate X-Men Volume 12: Hard Lessons continues important story arcs from previous volumes in Brian K. Vaughan's Ultimate X-Men run. However, this volume is not at the same level as the previous ones. One of the strengths of Vaughan's Ultimate X-Men run is the fact that he does a great job with the character interactions between all the members of the team. This volume primarily consists of standalone stories featuring one or two members of the team. This means that the strengths of the previou...more
This is the 4th volume of Brian K. Vaughan's run on the title and he keeps the quality top-notch. I can't believe how much I've enjoyed his stories so far. He's definitely streamlined the series and shown plenty of skill in writing these stories. This volume collects one stand-alone issue, a 2-part story arc, and Ultimate X-Men Annual 1. The stand-alone story is a Professor X story and is probably the best issue in the series. The art is handled by Steve Dillon and is fantastic as always. Then w...more

Internal Tensions are threatening to do what the entire world could not, Destroy the X-Men. Check out my full review: Ultimate X-Men: Hard Lessons
Three random unconnected stories, none of them are bad but it doesn't amount to as good of a whole as any of the other volumes with a single story line.

Okay, the opening one shot was a big ol' cheeseball. Helped build slight character for Charlie, but otherwise... I'm lacking hope for the rest of the issue.

Shock and Awe redeem the story. Although Kurt is still apologetically creepy.

And then Ultimate Sacrifice seems only alright until the last few pages.

Good volume, not much in the department of kick-ass and heart-wrench though.
One of the better Ultimate X-Men volumes. Brian K. Vaughan writes a great Prof. X narrative and a great Storm/Wolverine/Deathstrike narrative. Again, it's his pacing that keeps me interested. Also, I think Stuart Immonen is the perfect artist for the Ultimate X-Men. This art is fun and vibrant, and matches well with Vaughan's writing.

A little uneven artistically, but still very enjoyable.
