Weekly Video Review

This review is of X-Men: Prelude to Schism #1, and I gave it a 2/5.

Plot or ending details follow. Please skip this section if you do not want foreknowledge of this plot.
Spoilers below! Read the book before reading, you'll be glad you did. :)

So I read this book in the store and didn't buy it. I had hesitations about it before I got to look at it, so I was essentially looking for a reason to buy it. I didn't find one.

The book generally has the X-Men waiting around for Scott to tell them what to do about an oncoming threat. He talks with Magneto and Professor X, reminiscing about the lessons he's learned to try to make a decision.

The art is okay, no really big problems, but nothing awesome in the whole book. There needed to be one or two awesome splash pages to keep me interested in the pages and pages of flashback dialogue.

The story was extremely boring. Any X-Men fan generally knows that Cyclops was trained by Professor X and has taken over as leader of the X-Men. There's nothing new in the entire book.

It's hard to say if this series is going to get any better with 3 more issues before Schism actually even starts, but at the very least, this issue was a bust. Looks like I'll probably be skipping the other three.
