I don't really know how to rate this. This book is a little rough around the edges and is a little unstructured in its second half but it is totally fascinating for its setting and subject matter, I don't know of much literature that centres around w ...more

Wow this book.
I read the content digitally, apparently the physical book is composed of two things: the "Dazzler: the Movie" graphic novel by Jim Shooter which is easily the grossest thing that I have read in years; and the Beauty and the Beast minis

Seriously wonderful. I think I would point people to this volume if they were looking for an X-Men stand alone kind of book to try out. Either this or Days of Future Past. Good character moments, plus you get Loki! I think a lot of people would send ...more

I love this volume. This was the only essential volume that my library system had, so for years these were the only X-Men comics I had ever actually read. It has Rogue joining the X-Men, Carol Danvers being repowered, the Morlocks story which totally ...more

I really enjoyed that a lot more than I thought I was going to. I thought Longshot was kind of a waste of space in the X-Men comics but here, where he makes sense and actually has a context he's somehow interesting. A lot of great cameos and just gen ...more

Frantz Fanon
“It is at this level that racism is treated as a question of persons.

There are a few hopeless racists, but you must admit that on the whole the population likes....

With time all this will disappear.

This is the country where there is the least amount of race prejudice.

At the United Nations there is a commission to fight race prejudice.

Films on race prejudice, poems on race prejudice, messages on race prejudice.

Spectacular and futile condemnations of race prejudice. In reality, a colonial country is a racist country. If in England, in Belgium, or in France, despite the democratic principles affirmed by these respective nations, there are still racists, it is these racists who, in their opposition to the country as a whole, are logically consistent.

It is not possible to enslave men without logically making them inferior through and through. And racism is only the emotional, affective, sometimes intellectual explanation of this inferiorization.”
Frantz Fanon, Toward the African Revolution

Paul Cornell
“In this place, upwards of 400,000
British men were going to be killed. They'd lost 20,000
just the other day. He sucked a grim smile. It was like
rich countries deliberately killing themselves, leaving
their battered remains ready for the revolution that would surely come, for who could return home without
wanting to face those who had wasted good men thus?”
Paul Cornell, Human Nature

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Sometimes a god comes," Selver said. "He brings a new way to do a thing, or a new thing to be done. A new kind of singing, or a new kind of death. He brings this across the bridge between the dream-time and the world-time. When he has done this, it is done. You cannot take things that exist in the world and try to drive them back into the dream, to hold them inside the dream with walls and pretenses. That is insanity. What is, is. There is no use pretending, now, that we do not know how to kill one another.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Word for World is Forest
