    This is the first volume of the second season of Jeff Parker's uber-fun and delightfully dynamic teen series X-Men: First Class, and it's quite another lovely turn-out for the heroes I deem the Original Core Five (OCF, trademark still pending). As I've mentioned in my official review of the first volume, the nineties cartoon series were my X-Men growing up, and Stan Lee's sixties fivesome used to be something I don't care for.

As I've mentioned in my official review of the first volume, the nineties cartoon series were my X-Men growing up, and Stan Lee's sixties fivesome used to be something I don't care for. But thanks to Jeff Parker, my opinion on that matter has entirely changed. I love my OCF to the depths of my soul! I just love reading Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman and Angel together, taking on a variety and supervillains, criminals and the usual off-the-kilter monster-of-the-issue, while dealing with the usual problems of fitting in, making connections and embracing the unique things their respective individuality can accomplish. If you're n adult in your twenties like me, or even if you are in your thirties or forties, and you read the first collection of this series AND WERE ABSOLUTELY ENTHRALLED, then you'd be just as in a celebratory mood as I am that the title has continued on with a second season; this time running for a total of sixteen issues. Comprised of issues #1-5 plus a special, Mutant Mayhem maintains the same balance of fluff, thrill and poignancy as the last one, putting our favorite merry band of crime-fighters in a dangerous island for a two-parter story, Jean Grey having a sisterly bonding moment with Invisible Girl of the Fantastic Four; while Bobby and Henry have a road trip together to get a clean break from all the exhausting vigilantism. It's a great volume that will appeal to the readers who were already established fans to begin with and are more than thoroughly invested to see where the OCF are headed, and hopefully to more wacky adventures and bizarre scenarios that make them grow as friends and as people, and challenge their perspective as well as relationships with one another. For a PG-13 series with no gore or violence or grim premises and depressing pay-offs, X-Men: First Class still knows how to deliver compelling, remarkable stories by relying on its core strengths which is really about these five lovable dorks and their struggles as mutants and aspiring heroes, and how to balance their lives outside of crime-fighting and the social politics their mentor incorporates them in. It only goes to show that comics could be fun and clean while still having emotional maturity and resonance at the same time. RECOMMENDED: 8/10 DO READ MY REVIEWS AT:

    Full disclosure time: This book was written by a very close friend of mine, and one of the illustrators happens to be my wife, so of course I have a bias. That said, one of the reasons that Jeff IS my friend is because I think he's one of the industry's most talented writers, and one of the reasons I married Colleen is because I find her talent to be beguiling.

So, take my grain of salt with a grain of salt, as it were. As to the book itself, Parker's writing manages to pinpoint what makes each of the characters tick, and expands on them with warmth and humor. And his stories are just plain fun. I'm glad that he's lately been getting a chance to do some continued stories (as opposed to the all-done-in-one "Marvel Adventure" style writings we've both been doing) so I can see what he's really capable of cooking up.

    Continuing the great x-read of 2017/18... These volumes weren't listed in the chronology that I used to buy the trades for this crazy ride. I ended up with this one because it came in a lot that I picked up on ebay. After reading this one, though, I wish that I had more of the First Class run. This was a really fun batch of stories. Nothing life-changing or anything that impacts continuity, but definitely fun. Continuing the great x-read of 2017/18...

    Vytratila se lehkost a místo zkoumání toho, jak by vypadala první generace v moderní době, se autoři zaobírají vším možným, co už mutanti nabídli dlouhé dekády zpátky. A v případě seznámení (?) s Hulkem nebo ostrovem plným nestvůr to obzvlášť v porovnání s Volume 1 působí jako minimálně dva kroky zpátky. Velká škoda, protože humor i kresba mi pořád přijdou na jedničku.

    This was an interesting updating of the X-Men's origins, filling in some details of the early years of Xavier's first five students and also acknowledging the sliding timescale a bit. Nothing earth-shattering but a pleasant read with some good character bits.

    Colleen Coover's cute cartoons are the best thing in this book. Otherwise, these nostalgic stories of the first five X-Men, all clad in identical blue-and-yellow costumes, are fine. Jeff Parker does a good job playing up what's different between those X-Men and today's--the first X-Men were more of a family and more like classmates. Similarly, Professor X was a great combination of Father Knows Best and Mr. Feeny from Boy Meets World. This volume's stories aren't quite as crossover heavy as the f Colleen Coover's cute cartoons are the best thing in this book.

Similarly, Professor X was a great combination of Father Knows Best and Mr. Feeny from Boy Meets World. This volume's stories aren't quite as crossover heavy as the first collection, which is nice. However, the two-part island story (was this a guest appearance by Krakoa from the All-New, All-Different X-Men?) ended on a fairly weak note.

    These issues were packed with cameos from characters around the Marvel Universe: Invisible [Woman] and the Fantastic Four, the Lizard, the Hulk, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. On the annoying side, there's a story set in the future in which Scott tells Kitty a story about Jean, presumably at a time when she's dead, since Kitty thanks him for talking about her even though it's hard. Do the editors not remember that this book is supposed to have appeal to people who aren't familiar with or don't c These issues were packed with cameos from characters around the Marvel Universe: Invisible [Woman] and the Fantastic Four, the Lizard, the Hulk, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

Do the editors not remember that this book is supposed to have appeal to people who aren't familiar with or don't care about continuity? Why bring in an unexplained character and so obliquely refer to an event the comics haven't introduced? Can't the big two produce ANYTHING that can stand on its own?

    This is a comic that should get 4.5 stars, because it has some really great stories. I especially liked the one where Marvel Girl teams up with the Fantastic Four and the one where Hank and Bobby go on vacation together.

    Still fun. Nice to see the class sent off to various locations and to see them in action alone or in pairs rather than as a solid bunch.

    There are a few nice moments, but this really lacks the charm of the first volume.

    Another fun collection of single issue adventures. A few more sexist moments than the previous volume. But overall a still enjoyable collection.
