it was amazing
Recommended for: Joss Whedon fans

This is the first X-Men part I've read and I picked it up because it was written by my favorite director/writer Joss Whedon the creator of shows like 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', 'Angel', and 'Firefly.' I am a fan of the X-men movies and enjoyed the animated tv series as a kid. The Omnibus offers a few pages of information for those who have not followed the comics before like myself.
I loved the writing and those familiar with Joss's work will recognize his signature wit and pop culture references. He is great at giving each character their own voice and giving the female characters a purpose rather than have them just be there to look good. Joss even got me liking Cyclops for the first time having never really being a fan of his. I particularly loved Kitty Pryde and Emma Frost. Like a lot of Joss work however, there will be a lot of sadness but also some hope. Also, the art work was amazing and really brought the wonderful story to life!
