    Man, Grant Morrison is so good when he is good. And his ideas are always weird and interesting. But. I think he is often mediocre and sometimes outright sucky at storytelling fundamentals. Nobody wants to read pages of clunky old-fashioned exposition, I understand. But Jesus, this is hard to follow. Too often, I don't understand what's going on until halfway though a scene. And if you don't know all the characters names and powers when the book starts, odds are you you won't get any help. Anyway Man, Grant Morrison is so good when he is good.

Anyway, this one is supposed to be his Days of Future Past deal, and it isn't terrible but it is very dense. And deeply hard to invest in. And every now and then the art is really crappy.

    Morrison doesn't know how to end a series run. He builds up momentum, sends sparks, and then lights himself on fire rather than creating a molten center.

    Morrison's X-run ended not with a bang, but a whimper. A really lame whimper. The story takes place far in the future - a really lame future - and as an "alternative time-line" tale, it holds no emotional weight; Morrison kills off all the X-Men, but it doesn't resonate as none of it as real. There's a cute rip off of "The Iron Giant" in a guy and his tame Sentinal, but that hardly redeems the rediculous evil buff feral Beast villian, or the silly conclusion to the performance-enhancing drug plo Morrison's X-run ended not with a bang, but a whimper.

Utterly forgetable, and since its in the future, unnecessary for undestranding the storyline. Very sorry way to end one of the great runs in X-Men authorship.

    This coda to Morrison's run on X-Men is, sadly, mostly incomprehensible. There's some cool stuff I guess (like the army of evil Nightcrawler clones!), but this story only makes sense if you've deciphered every other part of Morrison's story, and only a little bit of sense at that. And who ever decided Marc Silvestri was hot shit? His pencils are as bland and second-rate Jim Lee as anyone else from the Top Cow crowd.

    It's ALL about evolution. Not just this story. But all of Grant Morrison's New X-Men. There is so much subtext and commentary throughout this run. And it's definitely worth a read. While some of the art is not fun to look at- and some of the ideas seem very underdeveloped. Grant and the X-Team crafted a story about growth and growing in a world full of life, death, love, and animosity.

So it's very ironic to us in the present that his last story arch is titled, "Here Comes Tomorrow".

    Here Comes Tomorrow (#151-154). The first time I read this, I found it confusing and opaque. However, read with more care, it's a refreshing take on X-Men futures and a really a nice coda to Morrison's run that reveals some of its hidden plots. We get great explanations and great endings. Perhaps more notably it's a great setup for what was a tremendous run of X-Men following on Morrison, all the way up to Secret Wars (when things got wonky).

    I loved Morrison's New X-Men run until this volume. I'm not a fan of Silvestri's art, and the plot just seemed to go off into left field. I loved Morrison's New X-Men run until this volume. I'm not a fan of Silvestri's art, and the plot just seemed to go off into left field.

    Grant Morrison's switcheroo on Days of Future Past, and apocalyptic AF. Just because he's done this story over and over doesn't mean it's not awesome every time. I liked the full fledged Beak, and Rover the lone OG Sentinel, Wolverine, great as ever, and the Beast "infected" with the Sublime. I did not literally read it in one day, but it was compelling and relatively short (about 100 pp.), so I read it quickly. The art was A++.

    Nothing AMAZING, the story was ok. Some good moments like the relationship between tom skylark and rover. The art was very good and i like the finale, but overall this volume was a filler and very forgetful.

    I remember when the issues came out for this storyline. I bought the first issue and was immediately turned off. Not sure why I hoped that this might still be good. But I bought the gn just to complete the Grant Morrison run that I was reading through. Man am I glad it's over. Everything about Morrison's run on the X-men deserves 5 stars except for this. The plot is completely incomprehensible, the new characters are mostly lame, and Wolverine wears really tight pants because apparently he is now I remember when the issues came out for this storyline.

I started reading X-Men during Silvestri's initial run on the series back in the 80s. I really liked it, but something still bugged me about his style. After all these years, I finally figured it out. It looks like Silvestri learned how to draw while he worked in the fashion industry. Most of his characters look like they are in modeled poses. Hell, people complain about Greg Land's work, but this isn't too far from it.

    My friend Jon said this book was a complete waste of time, but given that I've read the rest of Morrison's X-Men run, I figured I'd check it out anyway. I find that, respectfully, I have to diasagree with Jon's stance. Yes, its another Future X-Men story, and yes, its got really annoying artwork by Marc Silvestri, but in a strange meta-sense, both of those annoyances make sense. This story caps Morrison's run, pulling little elements from every moment to scuplt a stereotypical X-Men narrative.

That makes it interesting, and the fact that its only 4 issues makes it succinct enough not to be too bloated and self-important. That being said, its another Future X-Men story and has really annoying artwork by Marc Silvestri, which are the only things keeping it from getting 5 stars.

    So, in this volume, Grant Morrison takes the mind-bending, unprecedented version of the X-Men that he'd ALREADY created and goes 150 years into the future AND RECREATES THEM AGAIN! I think this volume is the perfect epilogue to Morrison's run on New X-Men. It recalls certain scenarios (and even quotes!) from prior issues in his run and really just spins the whole run all together beautifully. It showcases what he had done with the X-Men and exhibits his style, which is pleasingly mind-bending and So, in this volume, Grant Morrison takes the mind-bending, unprecedented version of the X-Men that he'd ALREADY created and goes 150 years into the future AND RECREATES THEM AGAIN!

    Finally, a story worth actually spending time to read! This was an extremely well written story, if a bit jumbled on the whole timescale aspect. I don't know what Morrison was doing in earlier volumes, but this one really came together quite well. And the artwork was fantastic! I have always enjoyed Marc Silvestri's artwork from the first time I encountered it in Witchblade, and his style really gave this story the push over into remarkable.

    This volume totally came out of nowhere. Most of every pages were confusing. The ending didn't come with a bang at all! A bit disappointed. The conclusion: New X-Men was OK, but I didn't like it that much. There were good parts in this series though, but most of it were all just OK. The 70% of the artwork sucks. It didn't capture the story at all. This volume totally came out of nowhere. Most of every pages were confusing. The ending didn't come with a bang at all! A bit disappointed.

    Wow!! Is Grant Morrison from this galaxy?? This future story shows the immense power of Jean Grey as the Phoenix as the god. This is my favorite future story of the X-Men.

    I know this run gets held up as an all-timer and some of Morrison's best work, but I think it is honestly pretty bad. This is right after Morrison cemented himself as the GOAT with Animal Man, Doom Patrol and JLA and I honestly think his prestige scared editors off of telling him that most of the shit he came up for this makes no sense and is overly confusing with no pay off. I don't want to sound like the fat guy who complains about the rib cage xylophone in that episode of the Simpsons, but if I know this run gets held up as an all-timer and some of Morrison's best work, but I think it is honestly pretty bad.

I don't want to sound like the fat guy who complains about the rib cage xylophone in that episode of the Simpsons, but if you're going to hinge your big run on a twist, you should make sure the twist is airtight. I know the Xorn stuff got retconned by editors that didn't want one of their most popular characters blowing up Manhattan or whatever, so they twisted a bunch of stories around and introduced new characters to fix things and it just turned out to be a giant mess, but even the unmolested story Morrison wrote is insanely stupid and poorly planned. This last arc is a huge mess with inconsistent art (the part where the Phoenix gets depowered looks like garbage-it is impossible to figure out what is actually happening even with characters describing it as its happening, and what even happened with the Cuckoos at the end?) and too many ideas for a four issue arc. I know people complain about how decompressed modern comics are, and they're right! All of Tom King's big marquee books could easily have been pared down to like 6 issues without losing anything, but this is a perfect example of the opposite. As you would expect from Morrison, there are a ton of interesting ideas and high level concepts here, but they all get like two panels to breathe before Morrison shoves it aside and presents some other completely bananas development. Also, and I know this is just a me problem, but I don't like Grant really leaning heavy on mutants being freaky gross monsters instead of just normal people with abilities. Whatever, maybe it's prejudicial and indicative of my own personal biases toward normalcy, but Beak, the brain-in-a-jar, old lady girl, annoying one eye guy and every other freaky deaky monster are dumb and I hate them.

    Apparently I am in opposite-land for all of this X-Men run, for this is the only volume I've read that I've gotten any real enjoyment from. And not just because of the ridiculous amazing Wolverine cover. Though I do love it. Weirdly enough, of the three volumes I've read, this is the one cover that actually ties in with the actual story, so kudos.

That said, I was a bit confused, but I hadn't read the previous two volumes, so it could be because of that, though I've read other reviews that said they were confused too. There's a lot of characters that I've never seen before and don't have any investment in, as well as some familiar faces. The art is a little gritty, but it works for the story. I liked the story overall, which is a dark future where something has gone wrong and the world is screwed. I don't always like dark futures, but this did draw me in a bit, partially because of the story, partially because of trying to figure things out. Is that character the same as the past one? Or a descendant? Happens more often than I thought. The ending was both satisfying and frustrating for me, as it felt like a win but also a win for one of my least favorite characters. I'm not going to act like it didn't bring this down a bit for me, as it did, but I could also see why it happened. Overall, I did like this book, despite its flaws. And not just because of that cover. Though I am going to treasure it forever. I think it would make a bit more sense if you've read all the previous volumes, but I can't guarantee it. Pick it up if you're curious.

    Um ... what the fuck? The art, by Marc Silvestri, is astounding but the story, which takes place 150 years after the previous arc and shows a batshit insane dystopian future where Beast is a treacherous genocidal maniac and many of our heroes haven't aged is ... weird. It does end on a nice note for future issues to carry on with (or not ... we'll see).

That line essentially starts as New X-Men ends so ... why not? Arcs Covered: Here Comes Tomorrow (#151-#154): We are sent 150 years into the future, where humans have basically been obliterated and all the remaining species, including mutants and telepaths, battle it out for survival. Every not and then, the story will cut back to Cyclops and Emma Frost discussing Jean's death.

    So, the end of an era. Morrison's run on the X-Men had been largely exciting, with several memorable moments and strong dramatic tension. He really should have left after the magnificent Planet X. The final four issues of his run are not the best though. Here, Morrison returns to the largely confusing and incomprehensible storytelling of his earliest issues and the entire story is easily skippable.

Here, Morrison returns to the largely confusing and incomprehensible storytelling of his earliest issues and the entire story is easily skippable. I did like the characterization of the future versions of some of the caharcters, but four issues is just not enough to properly introduce and utilize this new world and the characters. Marc Silvestri's art is BEAUTIFUL and it's a shame he doesn't stay on for longer. The volume ends with two issues penned by Chuck Austen, the incoming writer of the series. The two issues are largely filler material to fill in the gap between Morrison's and Austen's runs and are pretty much just basic X-Men material. Salvador Larroca's art is interesting to say the least, and takes some time to get used to, but I'm willing to give him a proper chance.

    Continuing the x-citing x-read of 2017… For all of the newness that Morrison was supposed to bring to the X-men, he certainly retreads a lot of their past stories/motifs, doesn’t he? That said, he is really good at telling those stories. You can’t really complain about his skill. This volume is good for what it is, sort of a different play on the Age of Apocalypse/Days of Future Past story with a healthy dose of the Phoenix saga. It’s tightly scripted and has some great surprises along the way.

It’s definitely worth a read, even as it is a hodgepodge of what has come before. The additions to the Phoenix mythos are mysterious and interesting. Also, it was cool for me to see Rover’s origins (as I knew him from the Wolverine and the X-men animated series…). In general, it was a fun and engaging read even if it isn’t among my favorite volumes of the x-books so far.

    3.5 stars Very Morrison-y, reminding me a lot of DC’s very Morrison-inspired Dark Nights Metal miniseries: they’re both set in a seemingly hopeless apocalyptic future with an odd assortment of familiar heroes and villains in newly reconfigured roles, they both go back billions of years to the dawn of earth at one point, and they’re both drawn by a celebrated 90s artist (Silvestri here, Greg Capullo on Metal) who have similar styles with an abundance of heavily pencil-scrawled texture.

    Finally finished all of Morrison’s run with New X-Men. Certainly didn’t expect it all to end like this, 150 years in the future. The cosmic qualities of the stories never worked as well for me as the down-to-earth stuff, so this one falls a little flat for me. But I do love that it’s easily the most insane out of the collection.

    Excellent "what if" type story arch. Would have gotten 5 stars if the ending hadn't been so confusing. Silvestri's art was awesome, as usual. I like the Beast as a bad guy. I felt like Apollyon was someone special under the mask but I couldn't tell when he was revealed. Excellent "what if" type story arch.
