X-Men Messiah CompleX review

"Brubaker does a commanding job with the writing, but no less effective is Marc Silvestri. His style has changed since his initial run (which itself featured some classic moments), but his work is on strong display here."

This is one of those full-disclosure/confessional moments. Though I’ve been a team book reader for many, many years (which is probably obvious from my various historical pieces on teams like the JSA, the Freedom Fighters, and my soon-to-appear Legion piece), no team book mattered more to me in my youth than Uncanny X-Men. The first issue that I ever picked up was #125, essentially the beginning of the Muir Island Saga. And I was hooked. CLICK HERE
