Dawn of X is a bit like a sampler volume of all the #1 issues that are part of the newly relaunched X-Men universe. And, uhh... this is where Hickman's singular vision for the X-Men starts to fall apart a bit.

X-Men #1 (3/5): after the absolutely fantastic start in HoXPoX, this is such a lightweight issue. It's a pretty good one, sure, but it reads as if it was just another issue in the middle of some longer run, and it's a filler one. Marking it as a brand new #1 is both unfair and underwhelming

There's basically a bunch of one shots all put into one. They loosely connect here but can read each one by themselves.

The re-launch of X-men is huge, because it has kind of been meh for years now. Hickman did amazing things with event of X-Men but now he's recruited his real life team of X-Men to create the universe once more. This time we have multiple series like X-Force, New Mutants, Fallen Angels, and more going along side X-Men the main series. The results? A mixed bag of course.

This is a bizarre idea to collect the first issues of these 6 series. But- what I would hope is that as these all continue it would really feel so cohesive and a collective journey rather than 6 stories.

This is collecting all the #1s of six different X-series, so there's definitely a lot going on here, and obviously most of it is setup. I would say that X-Men, Marauders, and Excalibur had the most promising starts. I'll be interested to see how cohesive these titles all work together, or if we'll be able to pick and choose ones and not be too lost.
Coming off House of X/Power of X, the first chapter into Dawn of X is a little slow. There's a lot of laughter and shrieking about playing "Who is that they've resurrected now?!" and there's the tongue-in-cheek fact that Hickman was basically made Logan, Jean, Scott, and Emma a polycule that in everything but the written out exact word, with all of them flirting, and three of them with adjoined bedrooms.

Slow going, and very a first chapter, in the way where I was chomping at the bit wondering

It’s no small thing to die and be born again.

After a certain amount of time you get tired of wasting talent. Of being part of a fraudulent profession — or actually being a fraud. And, most importantly, not living the life you are capable of having.
