I've loved comics a while, but I'd not been a huge X-Men reader, but this first Exiles ultimate collection was given me by someone who loves the X-Men and wanted to share that love with me.

Well, I can say this - it got me hooked on Exiles. :)

The premise is simple, if weird even for a comic book. Six X-men from various realities have been pulled out of their timelines because something has gone wrong with their world that changes their entire life. They will travel as a group to different worlds,

Down the Rabbit Hole (1-2). The first arc nicely sets up the comic, its goals, and its stakes. This is generally a workmanlike combination of those elements but (at the time), it’s fresh and thus enjoyable [7/10].

Old Wounds, New Battles (3-4). The Phoenix story is a nice historical that touches upon the emotions and the difficulty of the tasks that the Exiles are given. The shattering fight against the Phoenix is especially great [7/10].

Up North and in the Green (5-6). Alpha Flight offers up ano

This series was pretty much what got me reading comics again so many years ago. First and foremost, it starred Blink, one of my favorite characters.

Easily one of the best X-men books I have ever read. And I say that as a HUGE X-men fan. A unique idea that explores the near infinite variations on the Marvel Universe. Not only does it have fun stories, but this is easily some of the best character work in modern superhero comics. A must read.
Joseph Zurat
This is great! It has a similar premise to the What If? books that Marvel used to run. It takes a group of characters from alternate realities and throws them into situations that sometimes require non-intuitive solutions. The early volumes have much of the heart that I found in other Judd Winick comics (namely, his long run on Green Arrow) and each of the characters introduced has a unique voice and set of motivations. (Re)Reading this instead of the currently running events has renewed my appr ...more
Been meaning to read this series for years now. I like these big fat Ultimate Collections. Enjoyed this one enough to plow right into the next book in the series.
