    I enjoyed this re-read quite a bit. I'm a sucker for an old-school Chris Claremont X-Men story and when you have the annoyingly talented Alan Davis on art duties (for five of the seven issues collected here anyway) and you throw in dinosaurs and the X-Babies... well, there's just nothing about this I don't love! 'Why not five stars, then?' I hear absolutely nobody cry! Well, it's because issue six of the seven collected here was a bit... underwhelming. Not much happened other than a recap of what I enjoyed this re-read quite a bit.

Not much happened other than a recap of what had been going on in the other X-books while this team had been off in the Savage Land. (view spoiler)[Also, the whole falling out between Rachel and Kitty felt more than a little forced. It didn't feel in character for either of them. (hide spoiler)] Overall, though, a cracking good X-read!

    3.25 stars. 7 issues in this book and the first 5 is the main story arc. A character has came back from the dead and the X-Men are cautious making sure that they are in fact themselves. The X-men find themselves in the Savage Land battling these dinosaur people who want to use Storm as a weapon to wipe out humanity so they can rule the world. Solid story. The last two issue deal with everyone coming back home and a Mojoverse story. Overall a decent book.

    The Savage Land part of this book was pretty good. The rest? Fluff.

    Working in comic book stores for the last *mumbles number quietly* years, I've discovered that there are many comnic fans who just want to read the same familiar and unchallenging stories that feature the same familiar characters having the same adventures in the same places they did thirty, fourty, fifty years ago. If there weren't fans like this, DC would have gone out of business in the early to mid nineties, and the comics landscape would be a less misogynist and racist place.

But if you're a Marvel X-Men fan, and you want the same tired stories from the late seventies and early eighties, then this "New Age" Uncanny X-Men run is tailor made for you. For other fans, this is a boring rehash of old stories where the slight changes are that Jean Grey has been switched out for Rachel Summers, and Bishop is there, as sort of a stand-in for Captain Britain on Claremont/Davis's Excalibur run from the 1980s. The Edgar Rice Burroughsesque Savage Land is uninteresting to most fans who were under sixty when this book came out. And Mojo and the X-Babies are an idea that most writers will throw in for one issue to break up dire and monumental storylines, but wouldn't dream of extending into an even two-issues-story. It's like writing a Max Headroom story, or making a joke about New Coke, its shelf life long ago expired. Alan Davis's and Tom Raney's art are both great but not enough to elevate this uninspired and uninspiring set of stories. While I'm glad Psylocke came back, her return was just as boring and out of left field as her death was in X-Treme X-Men. Best to pretend this whole era of Claremont books never happened.

    I'm through with Uncanny X-Men for quite awhile, and I couldn't be happier. It feels somehow appropriate to end my look at fifty years of this title with a Chris Claremont written story that uses so many of the elements he so enjoys, like the Savage Land and Mojo, which felt new when they were created, but now feel so tired and worn out. I think that's been the problem with this book....it became too successful, and once that happened, it stopped striving for something new and just kept replayin I'm through with Uncanny X-Men for quite awhile, and I couldn't be happier.

    As weird and silly as the Savage Land story was, I really liked it and would give that story 4 stars, but the Mojo story was annoying. I kind of hate that character, and this certainly didn't sell me on him. But the art throughout was really fun, so that helped a lot. Actually, best art of this series so far.

    I read this because I wanted to see how X-23 integrated in the X-team. For that reason I liked to story, everybody got to know her, and trust her a little. The story itself was, weird... I don't really care for the savage land and their weird dino-like creatures. But all in all not a terrible read I read this because I wanted to see how X-23 integrated in the X-team.

    Continuing the great x-read of 2017... Not particularly memorable. a bit of a rehash, Claremont's greatest hits coming back... Nice to see Psylocke return I suppose but the resurrections get a bit old after awhile. Continuing the great x-read of 2017...

    The whole thing with the dinosaur people and Rachel becoming a dinosaur person were cool. Very little else seemed to matter or payoff. Wolverine got hijacked into another story. X-23 didn't really develop. Same for Brainchild and whoever else was here. The whole thing with the dinosaur people and Rachel becoming a dinosaur person were cool.

    I'm usually not a fan of Claremont's work, but this surprised me. I thought this was a good follow-up to the X-Treme X-Men Savage Land story. And hey, Psylocke is back, can't complain about that. Even though no explanation whatsoever is given about her "resurrection." At least it's something I can look forward to in the coming issues. Oh and I very much liked her interactions with X-23, who is quickly growing on me.

    The best part of this book is that, whenever I see it, I want to start singing the Modest Mouse song - "Its all right / its all righ / its all right on ice on ice." But that's just me. 1)It involves the Savage Land, and ever since the late 60's the Savage Land has blown. 2)It involves aliens, and ever since the first Brood plot back in the early 70's, aliens and the X-Men have blown. Ergo, this volume blows HARD. The best part of this book is that, whenever I see it, I want to start singing the Modest Mouse song - "Its all right / its all righ / its all right on ice on ice."

    "Visiting the Savage land is never dull" says Storm in this book but I beg to differ. Savage land was never one of the more interesting assets of the X-Men universe and Claremont clearly belongs to 20th century Marvel. Nothing more to add.

    No matter how much X-Men are the child of Claremont, this still was big piece of crap. Why did you come back Chris and destroyed what you helped to create.

    Good start, ridiculous ending. A lot of loose threads.

    It's very bitty. A rehash of a savage land invasion story, Betsy is back from the dead. The only saving grace was the Mojo story at the end with the xbabies in it. It's very bitty.

    Rachel constantly in a T-Rex pose was weird. I did like the team dynamic.
