X-Men: The Shattering Reviews

  • Fraser Sherman

    Mostly this is a reminder why I didn't read X-books much during the 1990s. Interminable internal conflicts (the X-Men disband—oh, wait, no they don't!), endlessly complicated backst0ry (even though I know about the complicated Cable/X-Man/Scott/Jean relationships I was kind of rolling my eyes), supposedly shocking twists piled on shocking twists, membership reshuffles, invincible yet unimpressive adversaries and at times a mind-boggling amount of talk. Not that there aren't some good moments h [...]

  • Scott

    I thought that Marvel included just the right amount of exposition (as well as a 'previously in . . .' page) to make this not too confusing since I did not read the previous installments.

  • Rob Marney

    Reading this interminable story arc, you can see why the X-Men were in dire need of a reboot. Events occur purely for shock value, or so the team can be slightly reshuffled, with any theoretical stakes for the characters dropped quickly. Although the plot is credited to Alan Davis, it's clear there is heavy editorial interference from Mark Powers, Bob Harras and Chris Claremont, because these stories are nothing like the stuff Davis was writing on Excalibur a few years ago.For a series whose sta [...]

    It really has started to bug me, the amount of talking these X-Men do. And if they do not talk, they fight with each other, no matter how dire or world-is-ending-situation is on.Apparently I have liked the way Alan Davis wrote at some point of my life, because I have hauled my lazy ass and got his autograph.

  • Tom Webster

    confused missmash

  • Robert

    Mixed too much and too many universes. FOllowed but confused - and somewhat juvinille

  • Frank Taranto

    Fairly interesting, even if I was lost in the story arc. Art was all over the place, sometimes from one panel to the next.

  • Kyle Mclaughlin

    Interesting story arc, though not quite as good as the X-Men vs Apocalypse volumes.

  • B

    I remember parts of this very well. Ultimately, this is a story that's really just spinning its wheels for a long time. But seeing some of my memories on the page felt valuable.

  • Craig

    Continuing my X-men catchup project - a slightly ridiculous (and ridiculously expensive) project wherein I collect and read the X-books from roughly the point at which I quit reading in my younger days. I have been slowly amassing these books over the last few years and am now at a point where I can begin reading without major gapsThis volume was decent. I really enjoyed the Mystique/Rogue/Kitty subplot that culminates with Kitty finding the Destiny diary that could end up setting up some really [...]
