    Claremont's writing is a pale shadow of his previous glorious one and I never been too much a fan of Bachalo's art (Rachel and Betsy, two of Marvel's femme fatales, seem two kids here... oh good grief), but the Jack Bauer's 24 style sequence was an intense, brutal and well made one.

    The first half of this collection, dealing with Rachel's trip home to see her extended family, was excellent. Really well written with some beautiful artwork, it was easily worth five stars. Unfortunately, the second half of this collection, dealing with the fallout of Rachel's trip and some of the consequences of 'M-Day' (see the House of M crossover for what that is; I'm not going into it here) was a little lackluster by comparison.

It wasn't actually bad, it was just a bit of a comedown after how good the first half was. Three stars at best. I guess that means this book averages out as a four star read on my semi-arbitrary scale. Could've been a lot worse...

    The Shi’ar view the Phoenix as the thing that can end all. So they want to take out anybody who is connected to it. So that means Rachel Grey and all of her family. And the come in pretty hard and fast. Dammit man that was brutal and F’d up. So far this is the best book. Gripping story, high stakes, tragedy and some nice art by Bachalo and Tan.

    A pretty dark story, the events of which play a major role in later stories involving Rachel Summers.

    I read this because issue #466 is where the main storyline picks up after House of M. Never having read Uncanny X-Men before, I was a bit confused, but not too much so since this story is actually about Rachel Grey and her friends. The story itself was ok. Lots of action, some mentions of M-Day, but I didn't particularly care for any of it. The art was great though. I read this because issue #466 is where the main storyline picks up after House of M.

    Continuing the (sometimes) great x-read of 2017... Since I am at the very tail end of 2017 and I haven't updated my reading in quite a while so I am "cheating" and just kind of writing one review for all of the volumes that I have read so that I can get them up by the end of the year. The aftermath of M day has been mixed to say the least.

It certainly has not come across as a well-orchestrated and planned out event at this point. (And the plot armor of the main characters primarily being the ones that retained their powers is a bit ridiculous, but that is to be expected.) At any rate, my x-read of 2017 is going to extend into 2018 since I am still not close to catching up. It may have to slow down in velocity a bit so that I can do a bit more "real" reading but the slog shall continue...

    The first half of this volume, focusing on the Shi'ar attempt to wipe the Grey family off the map is probably the best 21st century Claremont story. While having Chris Bachalo on art is part of the reason, there's also the fact that Claremont's story is focused in a way that none of the rest of his modern stories are. By making this a Rachel Grey story in which other mutants appear, as opposed to a team of his favorite B-side X-Men, he has time to actually develop some of the characters.

By making this a Rachel Grey story in which other mutants appear, as opposed to a team of his favorite B-side X-Men, he has time to actually develop some of the characters. Not too much. There's still some of the trademark Claremont hair-trigger turns, the most blatant in this volume is Rachel's doting grandmother who turns into a mutant hating bigot so that we don't have to feel bad when she dies. The second half of the book expands its focus, and suffers a bit for it. It's not terrible. In fact, I'd put it up with late 80s Claremont, whcih is a sizable improvement after X-Treme X-Men, and the rest of this Uncanny New Age run.

    So, in my review for HOUSE OF M, I mentioned that I was making up for all I missed when it came out originally in 2006, like this TPB. This was not the book I was hoping it would be! Chris Claremont, when he was on his game, he was good. His stories were decent, his characters cool, and at a base level, the heroes were heroes and the villains were villains. And even despite the initial outfit that Emma Frost first debuted in, his characters were not as objectified as they were in this run of UXM!

And even despite the initial outfit that Emma Frost first debuted in, his characters were not as objectified as they were in this run of UXM! From the panels of Betsy Braddock, working out in a belly highlighting top and tight short shorts, to Rachel Grey, in a midriff baring t-shirt and little frilly bikini underwear in bed at night, the art within served as nothing more than fan service! It did not enhance the story, nor did it do anything to advance the plot. All it succeeded in doing was satisfying hornball fanboy desires! It's a shame, really, as the first three issues of the trade were quite good. I thought Chris Bachalo turned in some solid art, excepting the aforementioned unnecessary "cheesecake". But, after his run, it was followed by art from Jon Sibal, which was not as smooth as Bachalo's, but still managed to sandwich in more Rachel Grey fan service, this time, in the shower as the O.N.E. sentinels were watching via CCTV! There was a time where I would have welcomed art like that in my comics, but that me is no longer relevant or welcome. I have a different mindset, one in which I am focused on what the story offers, rather than just visualization alone. I gave this one 2 Stars, as I was taking into account Bachalo's art and Claremont's scripting on the first three issues of this TPB. I have one more undertaking, SON OF M, which I am hoping will be better than this turned out to be! #disappointment

    As the title makes clear, the big story is that the Shi'ar wipe out Jean Grey's entire family who happen to be gathered at a single house. This is a war crime that has been quickly forgotten. I think there's also another story, but I'm not sure I remember it. And the whole thing with O.N.E. is building up.

    The Grey Family can't catch a break. This was a brutal story. Really well-told, and Chris Bachalo and Billy Tan provide excellent art. Just shocked at how dark it got.

    This is a "meh" story combined with excellent artwork, but what else can you expect when treated to Chris Bachalo's pencils? I was glad to see a storyline that had Rachel Grey at the center of it, since she's not been all that well-developed in the past. This gave a lot of emotional weight to her character, and served to influence her actions quite a while afterwards. The mix of characters involved as the group of X-Men facing the alien threat menacing Rachel was a good one -- Psylocke, Cannonba This is a "meh" story combined with excellent artwork, but what else can you expect when treated to Chris Bachalo's pencils?

The mix of characters involved as the group of X-Men facing the alien threat menacing Rachel was a good one -- Psylocke, Cannonball, Bishop, Nightcrawler, Shadowcat, and Wolverine represent a variety of eras in the X-Men's history, and they worked very well together. The level of violence and the way that (SPOILER!) every single Grey family member aside from Rachel (and Cable and X-Man who weren't even involved in this story of course) was systematically hunted and killed made this a little tough to read, though, and the villains, while suitably creepy, weren't the best new creations in recent X-history.

    Claremont had been trying for nearly 20 years to tell a worthwhile Rachel Summers/Grey story and the first half of this trade I would say is the closest he comes. I personally like the character despite the failings of writers to tell a worthwhile story, so I enjoyed this. Also for reading a Claremont story that is enjoyable is a rarity nowadays, so that was also a plus. But again, the first half is good, second half is mediocre/bad. Claremont couldn't keep it up, but just that little stretch wa Claremont had been trying for nearly 20 years to tell a worthwhile Rachel Summers/Grey story and the first half of this trade I would say is the closest he comes.

Claremont couldn't keep it up, but just that little stretch was worth it. Bachalo is also the first half artist which probably helps my estimation. Though honestly it isn't his strongest work. Tan is the second half artist and he is not good at all. So again, this may have helped my estimation of the two halfs.

    Pretty solid. The basic premise of this volume is that the Shi'ar have finally decided to fix the Phoenix problem once and for all by wiping out the Grey family. The first half is crazy--death everywhere, Bachalo's bizarre art that I simultaneously love and hate, and a particularly interesting issue covering only 24 seconds, but in extremely slow motion. The second half isn't as good--the story gets a little stultified, some of the characterization seems off, and the whole thing just feels silli Pretty solid.

But much better than some of Claremont's other stuff from the same time period.

    3.5 Stars. This Volume primarily deals with Rachel Grey. From being targeted by a Shi'ar Death Trooper Squad, to the Grey family being slaughtered, to her stealthy missions to get away from the Sentinels guarding the Mansion, Rachel seems to be a magnet for trouble. Could it be because she will most likely be the next carrier of the Phoenix Force? YES! This story takes place post M-Day, and although entertaining, was not essential to the overarching X story. Just ok overall... 3.5 Stars. This Volume primarily deals with Rachel Grey.

    The art of Chris Bachalo is just amazing. I only buy the x-men books whenever he is the artist....the storyline is also great focusing on how different galaxies are trying to take out Rachel summers because she is the daughter of the phoenix...they are scared that what hapenned to her mom will happen to her and she wont be able to control the phoenix force...deep.

    I've had this in digital version forever ( because a long while there was a sale and half of the issues are penciled by Chris Bachalo and I am a huge fan of all his work). Anyway I finally got around to read these 6 issues. It's an average story with way above average art.

    Love Chris Bachalo's artwork! Overall I'd say this trade was pretty good for just having randomly picked it up and not knowing anything about House of M or pretty much any backstory (thanks boyfriend for trying to catch me up on all of that business). BTW.. Rachel Grey is a badass! :) Love Chris Bachalo's artwork!

    The Shiar Empire has sent their army to dispose of all the Grey family to ensure that the Phoenix does not come back somewhere along their lineage. Valerie Cooper and the O.N.E. program is dealing with the 198 still at the mansion.

    This is a very heavy book although it does provide enough background so that if you have missed out on previous books you can still figure out what's going on.
