Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I am really liking this series so far. HoX and PoX were really well done. The first two ongoing titles (X-Men and Marauders) continue right where PoX #6 leaves off. So many mysteries going on here. I haven't been this excited about the X-Men in about 30 years. Hickman can be an acquired taste, but I really dig it. The X-Men are finally relevant again!

HoX and PoX was very interesting. X-men stories have sucked for a long time and this has made me want to read it again. I am curious to see if these are the real X-Men.

As much as I loved HoX/PoX, this is where I jump off from buying the X-books regularly. I'll most likely read Dawn of X later as collected hardcovers or digitally, but after 40 years, it's time for me to retire from getting individual hard copies every week.

I was a X-Men child starting in the mid-90s and then went back into the 80s books. I really enjoyed it. Very much so. I like the mix with future and past. Hickman's set of books really showed respect for the franchise. And THAT is what I appreciate above all else.

Comparing it to Dark Phoenix Saga is a bold statement. It's great, but I don't know if it's that great. I think it's a stand-alone in how it propels the franchise forward.

It reminded me of HBO's Westworld storytelling, just with X-Men.

Ok, good enough for me. I'll wait for the hardcover collection but I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

The first issues of all the Dawn of X titles will also be collected into a TPB in February.

Since I don't buy monthlies anymore, I'll most likely get this instead.
