Well, this was a trip!
The art, by Bernard Chang is, of course, superb, and the writing’s pretty good too. The alternate universe X-Men formula is tried and tested but used to good effect here and kept me gripped right up until the end…
…when the reveal of one of my least favourite characters left me sorely disappointed. Your mileage may vary, of course, but suffice it to say that I wasn’t a fan of the Morrison run. Not that it really matters, of course, as this is, I assume, a one shot, and there won’t be a “next time.”
As such, this is a thoroughly enjoyable glimpse of an X-Men that will never be.
