Review: Ultimate X-Men, Vol. 1: The Tomorrow People (Ultimate X-Men trade paperbacks #1)

User Review  - Bracton - Goodreads

This is a review of the entire series (though issue #100). Highly uneven, mostly stale rehashing of classic X-Men storylines. IMO the story never hit a groove and felt like a highlights collection of decades of X-Men mythology. Having multiple writer-artist teams probably didn't help. Read full review

Review: Ultimate X-Men, Vol. 1: The Tomorrow People (Ultimate X-Men trade paperbacks #1)

User Review  - Jack Haringa - Goodreads

Ugh, Mark Millar. The Kubert art raises this to three stars, but it features all the worst hallmarks of Millar's writing for Marvel: cheap cynicism, creepy sexuality, undermining the core elements of characters and heroism in general. I won't be catching up with the rest of the series. Read full review
