Generation X #1

Well, not exactly what I was expecting. Or hoping for.

Generation X has characters I was excited to see in this book – old favorites like Kitty Pryde and Jubilee. But something’s just… off. I think I know what it is, too. I think I miss X-Men ’92. I loved that short-lived book. And this reminds me of it. Just not as good.

The art here is mixed. The colors are nice, but I’m not crazy about how everything looks. Too slick, I think. Or aiming to be too realistic. And the writing? Eh. I mean I know it’s just one issue, but a first issue should suck you in. This was straight boring. Students fighting over scuffed shoes boring. Literally.

I don’t really see myself sticking with this one.
