I enjoyed this re-read quite a bit. I'm a sucker for an old-school Chris Claremont X-Men story and when you have the annoyingly talented Alan Davis on art duties (for five of the seven issues collected here anyway) and you throw in dinosaurs and the X-Babies... well, there's just nothing about this I don't love!

'Why not five stars, then?' I hear absolutely nobody cry! Well, it's because issue six of the seven collected here was a bit... underwhelming. Not much happened other than a recap of what

The Savage Land part of this book was pretty good. The rest? Fluff.
I'm through with Uncanny X-Men for quite awhile, and I couldn't be happier. It feels somehow appropriate to end my look at fifty years of this title with a Chris Claremont written story that uses so many of the elements he so enjoys, like the Savage Land and Mojo, which felt new when they were created, but now feel so tired and worn out. I think that's been the problem with this became too successful, and once that happened, it stopped striving for something new and just kept replayin ...more

As weird and silly as the Savage Land story was, I really liked it and would give that story 4 stars, but the Mojo story was annoying. I kind of hate that character, and this certainly didn't sell me on him.

But the art throughout was really fun, so that helped a lot. Actually, best art of this series so far.

Continuing the great x-read of 2017...

Not particularly memorable. a bit of a rehash, Claremont's greatest hits coming back...

Nice to see Psylocke return I suppose but the resurrections get a bit old after awhile.

I'm usually not a fan of Claremont's work, but this surprised me. I thought this was a good follow-up to the X-Treme X-Men Savage Land story. And hey, Psylocke is back, can't complain about that. Even though no explanation whatsoever is given about her "resurrection." At least it's something I can look forward to in the coming issues. Oh and I very much liked her interactions with X-23, who is quickly growing on me. Overall, a fun and exciting read for me (something I've never said about Claremo ...more

The best part of this book is that, whenever I see it, I want to start singing the Modest Mouse song - "Its all right / its all righ / its all right on ice on ice." But that's just me. 1)It involves the Savage Land, and ever since the late 60's the Savage Land has blown. 2)It involves aliens, and ever since the first Brood plot back in the early 70's, aliens and the X-Men have blown. Ergo, this volume blows HARD.

"Visiting the Savage land is never dull" says Storm in this book but I beg to differ. Savage land was never one of the more interesting assets of the X-Men universe and Claremont clearly belongs to 20th century Marvel. Nothing more to add.

No matter how much X-Men are the child of Claremont, this still was big piece of crap. Why did you come back Chris and destroyed what you helped to create.

Good start, ridiculous ending. A lot of loose threads.

It's very bitty. A rehash of a savage land invasion story, Betsy is back from the dead. The only saving grace was the Mojo story at the end with the xbabies in it.

Rachel constantly in a T-Rex pose was weird. I did like the team dynamic.
