    This story arc concluded Peter Milligan's run on the adjective-less X-Men title which would pave the way for Mike Carey taking over as writer of this book.

Suffice to say, it was one of the most confusing turns on Marvel's mutants. I still could not forget how Milligan made me feel uncomfortable with his Rogue-Gambit-Mystique triangle, especially on how Mystique planned to resolve the intimacy issues between Gambit and Rogue. This one was a lost opportunity to use Apocalypse as the magnificent villain he was. At least though, it set up the next X-Men stories by restoring Polaris and Sunfire. It also kept Gambit off the X-Men roster for several cycles, until an appropriately epic return in X-Men #200. If you're a hardcore X-Men fan, you've probably already read this, otherwise, skip it for the much better Carey issues.

    SUMMER OF X-MEN CAPSULE REVIEW #9 If we're going to be real about it (and I am always real), this storyline isn't really, really complete without a few 'prequel' issues from Cable & Deadpool: Living Legends, in which Cable throws some leftover 'Apocalypse meat' (no this is really the story, stay with me) into a magical resurrection crypt in Apocalypse's flying pyramid (stick with it, almost there) because Cable believes that a battle with a reincarnated Apocalypse is the only thing that can re-en SUMMER OF X-MEN CAPSULE REVIEW #9 If we're going to be real about it (and I am always real), this storyline isn't really, really complete without a few 'prequel' issues from Cable & Deadpool: Living Legends, in which Cable throws some leftover 'Apocalypse meat' (no this is really the story, stay with me) into a magical resurrection crypt in Apocalypse's flying pyramid (stick with it, almost there) because Cable believes that a battle with a reincarnated Apocalypse is the only thing that can re-energize the X-Men as a team following the world-altering mutant decimation chronicled in, uh, Decimation. There, yay! We did it! We got through the "why" of this book! For some reason, the art budget skyrockets on the main storyline, which has full painted artwork (overdone? overwrought? ridiculous? NAY) from Salvador Larroca, in this, the final arc of the Milligan/Larroca run. I've only read this once, and it sort of takes a couple reads to know if a Milligan book is good or just weird. As it stands, I'd say weird -- it's cool that Apocalypse is in it, and Milligan leaves a bunch of cliffhangers for other writers to follow. But by the same token, it has the same sense of incompleteness as every other story in the run, without the promise of, yknow, a follow-up story to maybe resolve things in the future. I don't know how Milligan manages to write a story as, er, apocalyptic as this one and still makes it feel as though he is very slowly unwinding his middle finger at the reader on his way out the door, but he does, and then some. GODDAMN YOU MILLIGAN. GODDAMN YOUR ELFIN IMPERTINENCE. C'MERE YOU OLD DOG

    In writing about the beginning of Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men, I mentioned that it should be taught to all potential X-Men writers as how to write a great X-story. Similarly, I think the Milligan run on X-Men should be taught, as every chapter leading up to this, the climax of his run, is utter garbage. It's one-star drivel that appears aimless and poorly thought out. And yet, somehow, Milligan wraps every thread up into a coherent ending. It's still terrible.

Similarly, I think the Milligan run on X-Men should be taught, as every chapter leading up to this, the climax of his run, is utter garbage. It's one-star drivel that appears aimless and poorly thought out. And yet, somehow, Milligan wraps every thread up into a coherent ending. It's still terrible. The characters don't behave like they do in anyone else's run, but they are consistent with the way Milligan has written them. The Apocalypse problem is solved way too easily, given the buildup. The way the company-wide event (Decimation/The 198) fits into this storyline works but doesn't accomplish anything. Unlike the rest of his run, which made me roll my eyes so hard that I feared there might be permanent damage, I found myself reading every word. Instead of just asking "why would someone write this" (I was still asking this question, but now there was room for other thoughts), I was asking "how did he make this terrible story come together". Most of the worst X-books start out with an idea and then fail to deliver. This book takes every terrible strand of Milligan's run, as well as some of the threads from Claremont's equally terrible concurrent run on Uncanny, as well as some strands from House Of M, and creates a tapestry. It's an ugly tapestry. But it's not a tapestry that looks like it was made by an amateur. It looks like it was made by a professional with terrible taste. Like when an artist seems to have no grasp of anatomy, but when you look at their work, you realize they draw everyone's necks in the same giraffe-like fashion, or all of their characters have Y-shaped skeletons. It looks terrible but purposeful. This is the worst book I've given three stars to. You might not be as fascinated by its stupidity as I am. The dialog, not as stiff as in previous volumes, is still awkward. The characterizations, particularly of Gambit, Rogue, and Mystique, is incredulously ludicrous. The events still feel entirely manufactured to get the story to its merciful conclusion. But they do get the story there. It seems to accomplish exactly what Milligan envisioned. So...kudos? I still can't recommend reading this for any reason other than deconstructing it.

    The absolute silliest use of Apocalypse. Worthless.

Quick ramblings: Cable and Deadpool continues to be surprisingly good though a little more scattered in these couple of volumes. X-Men the Blood of Apocalypse was rushed in my opinion... Phoenix Warsong was pretty decent. Melodramatic but not a bad story. (and when is a Phoenix story not melodramatic?) New X-Men is a good series with some great characters that grow volume by volume. Uncanny First Foursaken was not my cup of tea really. Black Panther: The Bride was probably much better to BP readers. As part of an X-Men run, it can probably be skipped. Wolverine Origins born in blood was not particularly memorable. Astonishing X-Men will possibly get its own review as it is a reread and interesting as such... Civil War was one of the first times in my life that I could say that the movie was better than the book. For the most part, it was really boring to me. The X-Men universe tie-ins were only slightly more interesting to me. X-factor continues to be a delight. Exiles continues to be great. I need to get back to writing reviews of these as I finish them. Reading them in quick succession like this, I begin to forget what happened in individual books (which I suppose equally speaks to the books themselves and my memory...)

Y en este momento de amenaza a la especie, Milligan decidió que era el momento de volver a sacar a la palestra a Apocalipsis, el villano darwinista que ya había dado momentos épicos a la franquicia mutante en La Caída de los Mutantes, La Era de Apocalipsis, La(s) Era(s) de Apocalipsis, Los Doce o La Búsqueda de Cíclope. Lo que pasa que esta vez vuelve algo más flojo, todo sea dicho. Y es que la historia La Sangre de Apocalipsis es un poquito decepcionante, la verdad. Quizá porque el ritmo de la narración es algo desmadejado, quizá porque el propio Apocalipsis parece haber perdido parte de su capacidad de ser impresionante, quizá sea la selección de jinetes que realiza esta vez, pero el caso es que la historia se queda bastante coja y deja un sabor raro a la etapa de Milligan al completo, con la sensación de que no iba por mal camino... pero se quedó corto.

    Pretty good art. Really bland story and childish writing. The characters all seemed off. Apocalypse did not seem like Apocalypse. The stakes seemed super low, even when En Sabah Nur was trying to cull 90% of humanity. There wasn’t even the illusion of him succeeding. The arc treated his ultimate failure as a given. I struggled through these issues. A page turner, it was not. Multiple times, I was like “huh? Why?” It felt like Peter Milligan didn’t really even give a shit. Skip it.

    This was Milligan's last and by far best X-Men arc. It was a really fast read, and a much better Apocalypse story than the last one I read...X-Men vs. Apocalypse, Vol. 1: The Twelve...ok it's hard to be worse than that one. What suffered a lot was the coloring. Everything looked a little too pastel, and it rendered many scenes mute. This was Milligan's last and by far best X-Men arc.

    El fin de semana recupere esta saga publicada por Marvel México. La última saga de Peter Milligan ora X-Men es un tanto entretenida con un Apocalipsis en toda la materia con drama de amoríos y muchos cambios en algunos mutantes se despide para dar pie a la época de Mike Carey con su magnífico equipo liderado por Rogue y también para el Messiah Complex, no es un must pero igual si quieren leer algo de Apocalipsis le pueden echar un ojo.

    Well, there's definitely a lot going on in this book. Rarely have I read a comic with such a mix of intriguing ideas and oddly bad execution. It is full of interesting ideas. (Apocalypse struggling with emotion; Ozymandias turning on his master; the explanation for Sunfire's power; Apocalypse's terroristic "deal" with the U.N.; the last horseman; even the idea of telling a lot of the story from Apocalypse's viewpoint is interesting and effective.) But, plotwise, it's sort of a trainwreck. (How e Well, there's definitely a lot going on in this book. Rarely have I read a comic with such a mix of intriguing ideas and oddly bad execution.

But, plotwise, it's sort of a trainwreck. (How exactly did Polaris get here? How is Apocalypse alive again? [The book itself alludes to this mystery.] Why does Death change sides, and how exactly does that new power work--it doesn't seem to have anything to do with his previous powers? What does the blood do, and is it actually blood? Why is the finale fight so boring?) And it suffers from the pretty-standard X-book problem of having WAY too many characters around. A trimmed cast (Astonishing-style) would have done wonders. I strongly suspect that Milligan only had X issues to finish his last run in, and was trying to get done. It seems like this could have been a really interesting, well-rounded book of about 12 issues, if ideas were given more time to ferment and everything wasn't so rushed. And things were explained more thoroughly.

    The last gasp of an overly angsty villain as camp. The tone of the book is set from the first line of dialogue: "I've got an even better idea, Lord Apocalypse. Why don't we kill them all?" I went back to this to remember where we stood with Apocalypse at the beginning of Uncanny X-Force. Milligan is talented, but his characters act in bizarre, over the top ways. Putting all of this into the villain of Apocalypse ends up being a good match. In many ways, though, the plot's a rehash, a cover versio The last gasp of an overly angsty villain as camp.

Putting all of this into the villain of Apocalypse ends up being a good match. In many ways, though, the plot's a rehash, a cover version of previous storylines. Apocalypse looms large, transforms some X-Men characters and newly introduced characters into his Horsemen, pronounces doom for humanity, and gets defeated. But in retrospect, he never returned in this form again. Remender's X-Force took Apocalypse into new and unprecedented territory. Right now, this stands as the strange last run of the guy with the big "A" on his belt. On its own, however, the book isn't a satisfying read. Salvador Larocca's stiff art does little to aid the equally stiff characters going through the plot motions. Like so much of Milligan and Larocca's run on this title, the old fun elements are present, but don't come together in a satisfying way.

    Finalmente terminé la polémica etapa del (casi siempre) grandioso Peter Milligan en X-Men y, muy a mi pesar, sentí alivio.

Las mini-historias de los nuevos Jinetes del Apocalipsis están bastante bien, pero podrían haber estado mucho mejor. El dibujo de Salvador Larroca es interesante y funcional, pero tampoco trae muchas sorpresas que digamos. Lo mejor que me dejó esta olvidable etapa es que, para amigarme con Pete, ni bien terminé los 18 números de la edición española me puse a leer "Enigma", obra del autor que hacía rato quería leer, y no sólo no me decepcionó sino que ni bien pueda le escribo una reseña con sus merecidas cinco estrellitas.

    The aftermath of the Chuck Austen era continues in this wildly uneven X-Men collection from Peter Milligan and Salvador Larroca. With the mutant population decimated, the ages-old mutant Apocalypse once again arises - this time to offer salvation to Homo Superior. Riding with Apocalypse are his new Horsemen, many of whom have ties to the X-Men. A rebuilt Sunfire burns anew as Famine, the depowered Polaris returns as an empowered Pestilence, and even Gambit opts to play the role of Death.

As friend and foe collide over the blood salvation from En Sabah Nur, the world of the X-Men will never be the same. Despite engaging linework from Larroca, he cannot help this train wreck of a plot. The numerous attempts at treachery by Ozymandius feels highly forced, the inconsistent portrayal of Apocalypse demeans the character, and the forced alteration of three prominent X-Men into Horsemen serves only to offer new design possibilities. X-Fanatics only will want to drink up this volume of the Blood of Apocalypse; the other readers will just feel drained.

    This series is dear to me, I spotted an issue of the story arc and bought it. I hadn't read comics in a long time and soon I found my local comic shop and started collecting. Following the events of M-day the mutant population is reduced to a very small number to add to their problems Apocalypse shows up to once again divide the strong from the weak. The story isn't novel but it does pit allies against one another and has some great set pieces involving heroes outside of the X-men.

    Definitely the best of Milligan’s X-Men books, because of the great artwork and his great take on Apocalypse’s Horseman. (Unfortunately the repercussions on those horsemen were too short-lived.) Its only flaw was the overly elongated fight with Apocalypse and his sphinx over the first several issues.
