New Mutants was one of two new titles debuting this week in the Dawn of X. It was actually the one that I was looking forward to the most. Like a lot of people, I have a fondness for the original New Mutants. While X-Force pleasantly surprised me, New Mutants gave me what I wanted. Did it give me more?
It’s the Dawn of X. Now we can see how this new direction for Marvel’s mutants evolves. I really liked the twelve issues that led into this line-wide relaunch of the mutant titles. Is this momentum going to hold, especially with the flagship title written by Jonathan Hickman? Oh, yeah, there may be some spoilers.
NOW we now have the blueprint for Jonathan Hickman’s new direction for the X-Men. Nothing terribly new is revealed about the present plans for the X-Men, but we do have a clear explanation for the why of it all. Oh, I will be spoiling the story for people. Powers of X #6 Writer: Jonathan Hickman
The final issue of House of X has come out and Jonathan Hickman's restructuring of the mutant corner of the Marvel Universe is done. Not really, because Powers of X #6 has yet to come out, and there has always been a little present day development in there. Nevertheless, we finally see all the pieces in place for how mutants are acting in the present day when it comes to the rest of the world.
There's absolutely no way to review this comic without spoiling it. Before I read it, I had it spoiled for me. I really recommend that you read this issue before proceeding with what I think about it. It's actually pretty fortunate that my day job and other pressing matters prevented me from finishing this until a week after it hit shops.
It's been talked about and now it's here. Jonathan Hickman's X-Men has started. House of X #1 hit shops and we start to get a lot of answers to questions we've had. We just don't get all of them. The first issue leaves as many questions as it answers.
One of the comics that came out this week from Marvel was a preview of Jonathan Hickman's House Of X and Powers Of X. While it could be argued that any major shift in direction is technically a reboot, it isn't an entire relaunch, ignoring the history, especially with what led to this point in X-Men history.
It was announced this week, through Twitter and an interview at comicbook.com that this summer, Marvel would cancel all X-Men titles and relaunch starting with two series.
This has been one of the best series to come out of Image in a while (not counting Saga of course). Do yourself a favor and pick this book up today. Also it looks like issue 13 might be a new jumping on point so do not miss it! Check out the cover to EAST OF
