    Much as I, unlike many others, really like the direction the X-Men have been taking since 2010, this really excites me. Like the reviewer said, t's nice to have an X-Men book removed from all the craziness in the main stories.
    Comic books are fun. Comic book fans, not so much.

    Finally, a CBR review that isn't wildly off the mark. This book was great.

    This book was a nice surprise, I wouldn’t go as far to congratulate the artwork, but it’s not annoying as expected, once you get into the story it fits the tone and sets the mood for gritty, freighting environment.

    The story feels classic, but still relevant and has a slasher film kind of vibe.

    I kinda liked this. I got the feeling it had been done before, but I guess if you read long enough, most story elements will resurface. The art, while a little rough, sometimes had a touch of Brent Anderson's "God Loves, Man Kills" (albeit not as good in terms of draughtsmanship). I liked the choice of main characters. The revelation at the end was a bit disappointing (oh it's that again) but I've got a suspicion that all is not going to be as it seems there.

    In the end, it wasn't perfect but it was good and I'd much rather be reading X-Men stories like this than ones like WATXM or BOTA.

    I haven't read any X-Books in awhile, but I did read Revel's Guerrillas GN recently...

    I will be purchasing this strictly on that basis...but, it is good to read a positive review as well...

    I liked it for being the first issue. Not a huge fan of the art, but like others have said, it works with the story.

    Every now and then a great stand alone story really hits the spot!
    I would buy the phone book and all its variant covers if Alan Davis drew it.

    How was this a Marvel Knights story? I thought those were supposed to be really HQ in all aspects? Compared to Marvel Knights: Spiderman, this was utter rubbish but I guess that set the bar too high.
