So what do they do? They buy some old Sentinels on the black market on the sly. On the sly? The old Sentinels are only sixteen stories tall. Anyway, they’re busted by Domino, who calls in the cavalry. But the X-Men can’t get around War Machine, who's representing NATO. After some cool hero-on-hero action: We have a team-up of sorts: until: Thanks for all your help, War Machine. On the way home, we’ll pick you up where you landed. Face down. In a ditch. In France. Now it’s X-Men on Sentinel action as the Sentinels are headed towards the country of scantily clad hooker vampires. Can the X-Men stop them in time and not get their asses handed to them? Bottom line: Fun, standard actioner for anyone who has to read every X-title ever printed. This volume also includes the first appearance of the Sentinels, Bolivar Trask and the initial fanning of the flames of mutant hatred (X-Men #14). It's from the sixties and is actually not bad.

    The X-men are caught in an international conflict where a country manages to get hold of Sentinels and want to use them defeating their neighbor countries.

    Its like an old Image title, great art, forgettable story. Jubilee was great, acting crazy, as she is now a vamp. The action scenes were pretty good. Fighting Sentinels can get pretty old, but some pages looked like they should be posterized. I can try to look at it as an espionage story, with Domino doing her thing, or a great call back to the 1st Sentinel story. or half an X-Force team getting out of the darkness of secrecy. but the story was just not very entertaining.

    Gischler continues to tell bland stories. Sentinels. Again. They’re attacking. Some X-Men stop them. Ready for the big twist? War Machine is there too. And Jubilee goes missing at the end. That’s it. ::slow clap:: wow Gischler... how compelling. The art is above average, and there are some really cool moments involving Domino beating people up while Jubilee and JuggerCollossus destroy sentinels. The action scenes are the redeeming quality here. Everything else is pretty lackluster. I give it a solid Gischler continues to tell bland stories. Sentinels. Again. They’re attacking.

    Continuing the great x-read of 2017/2018... (and I am very far behind on reviews again so this batch will once again be short. One of these days I will get back to reviewing each volume as I finish them so they don't all sort of start bleeding together in my head as they tend to do.) A pretty average volume in about every way. It gains a points for Sentinels because I can never get enough of mutants fighting giant robots. Continuing the great x-read of 2017/2018...

    Not bad, not bad. The political backdrop was more interesting, the lady dictator a good antagonist. War Machine himself was pretty unnecessary though. The art was decent. The story was a good use of sentinels. Pretty good stuff. Oh, and Jubilee is a crazy badass, jumping between flying sentinels while blowing them up. That was worth everything.

    A case of a book resonating so little with me that I forgot to mark it finished on Goodreads for a month or so... tried and tested shutting down a Sentinel production facility in Eastern Europes.. with the best story being Jubilee's struggles with her new condition... a week 5 out of 12, I am afraid.

    Maybe not the best X-Men story ever, but entertaining enough. This made for a good read. Did not read the reprint comic. Some nice cheesecake art with Storm and Psylocke. I like this volume of X-Men so far. Not sure if Gischler has done any other X-Men writing, but his work on X-Men vol. 3 is quality. Recommended for hardcore X-Men fans and completists.

    Very short. Interesting. Wondering what happens next. The addition of War Machine is a nice touch. Maybe I'm just really out of touch with the X-Men and need to get caught up. Reprint of X-Men #14 in the back is also pretty nice. Very short. Interesting. Wondering what happens next. The addition of War Machine is a nice touch.

    A solid entry. Both stories were resolved very quickly. It was interesting seeing the contrast between x-men of 2011 with 1963! The old style was definitely more jokey and not as interesting.

    This trade contains X-Men (2011) issues #20-23 and X-Men (1963) #14. I haven't read much X-Men related comics since Whedon's run on Astonishing. War Machines caught my eye and featured an interesting group - the back cover text described Storm leading a team of "Utopia's most powerful mutants - Warpath, Psylocke, Colossus and Jubilee." Wait, Jubilee?! Ok, between comments like that and what I've heard about the recent Cyclops/Wolverine split obviously I'd missed a lot of changes.

Wait, Jubilee?! Ok, between comments like that and what I've heard about the recent Cyclops/Wolverine split obviously I'd missed a lot of changes. Since this trade also sounded like a good jumping on point I decided to give it a try. The title "War Machines" plays double reference to the threat Storm's team faces, a nation locked in border disputes that has decided to solve the problem with an army of Sentinels, and the fact that they cross paths with NATO's enforcer, War Machine. While there's not much in the way of explanation of past developments to catch new readers like me up, important information on the developments themselves is quickly presented in the first issue. Colossus now houses the powers of the Juggernaut, Jubilee is a vampire, etc. The issues here are what I generally refer to as "action fluff." There is an interesting set up and payoff to the situation that the X-Men are dealing with, and it's a decent storyline framework, but the focus is on X-Men vs Sentinels and taking Storm's new team out for a spin for the readers. And there's nothing wrong with that - I enjoyed War Machines for what it is. I just mention it because anyone looking for more depth to develop the titular characters or justify Marvel's annoying trend of collecting only 4 new issues at a time in trades won't really find it here. The art is very good and has a dark tone that compliments the covert strike team concept nicely. I'm really not a fan of early Marvel work, so while I understand the inclusion of the Sentinels first appearance I really would've rather the pages be used to reprint something else (from the Claremont era maybe, or better yet just more new issues). War Machines is a fun little story that wasn't mind blowing but that I enjoyed and has me interested enough to check out more. While I suppose means mission accomplished, but it's somewhat non-essential and insubstantial and I'm not sure it supports a retail price trade purchase on it's own.

    This was alright. There was a bit of a break from previous comics in the series. When last I saw Jubilee, she was retreating from everyone, but now she is out in the field. I gather that Schism happened between trades, but this is still a pretty big jump. Still, it played up her vampiric sneakiness and strength, so that was well-handled, and the story was good, if not terribly exciting. It was also a rather short collection, padded out by an old story, which I would prefer they didn't do. There This was alright. There was a bit of a break from previous comics in the series.

There were some semi-interesting character moments, with both Jubilee and Colossus struggling to control themselves, and it is leading into explaining just what is going on with Jubilee, which I will be interested to see. I was not too keen on the art, but it wasn't utterly terrible, just had some moments of weirdness that took me out of the story.

    FIRST READ: Not a bad story, nothing special, but not bad. The reason for the four-stars is the addition of the classic X-Men at the end with the first appearance of the Sentinals. So cool to see such a classic story in with the modern story. SECOND READ: What this book has going for it more than the others in this series so far is as follows: a) The story connects back to the original story of Jubilee becoming/being a vampire b) It's like an 80's/90's action movie plot put into an X-Men comic c) S FIRST READ: Not a bad story, nothing special, but not bad.

    This volume contains enough entertainment in a story about Storm led X-Men team against another party who use perennial enemy the Sentinels. There is little in the way of character development or great emotional impact.

    An embarrassingly contrived plot that devolved quickly. That's just a brief synopsis of this collection. Gischler again struggles to grasp who these characters are and what makes them great. The inclusion of War Machine was interesting until the second issue when that tension disappears for no reason. Just bad writing. Jubilee's decent into.....whatever is plain bad. The art by Will Conrad was solid and keeps this from being rated any lower. Overall, another miss. An embarrassingly contrived plot that devolved quickly.

    Public library copy. (To be read on vacation.) I don't keep up with mutant titles obviously because this book was a library copy, but this was an all right read. I thought the artist was really good and even better than the story served. I hope the artist gets a chance to work on a title of wider recognition rather than a non-A-list mutant character title.

    I think this may be Gischler’s best volume of the series. Yeah, it’s shallow as all heck and has no long-lasting effects; the characterization of War Machine is also non-existent. But it’s a fun bit of action with some nice continuity via the Sentinels. I also think the team gels better post-Schism, where it was kind of random beforehand.

No cross-overs (yet), no need to read other series or Event mini-series. Just good, action-packed mutant fun. 3.5*. You know what I really like about this series?

    Surprisingly good seems to be the watch-word for Gischler's X-Men. A solid, if unremarkable, adventure that has some good battle scenes if a fairly cliched plotline.

    An average X-Men story. I wish Sentinels were still scary in the comics, but they're not. They're just purple cannon fodder these days. I liked the team setup, but not a lot of characterization.
