I picked this up in a bookstore a few years back and it basically got me back into reading X-Men again after a drop off that lasted years. I had no idea that the comics were being written for older audiences. Too bad it's cost me so much money to fill in all of the gaps from over the years. Art in this is solid, though some of the characters (especially Beast) look a little off. The story is really well done and doesn't feel like they were stretching things by basically rewriting some classic moments that introduced the second version of the X-Men (which resurrected them from cancellation). This marks a turning point for the X-books in that after this they no longer fall under the leadership of Prof. Xavier. It's a nice change that has churned out some interesting stories over the years.
