    Hardcore old-school X-Men story... as a family feud between the racist and anti-mutant Cabots and the X-Man family Guthries escalates enough for the X-Men to be called up. A harsh hitting, no punches pulling look at bigotry and ongoing family feuds and the carnage they bring! More Austen multi-faceted characterisations sees him really get into Angel and Husk. A strong 8 out of 12 from me.

    an interesting x-men-style retelling of Romeo and Juliet with my new favorite mutant: Jay Guthrie AKA Icarus!

    Shakespearean take on the X-Men with excellent results. Nightcrawler puts in an appearance, and Angel has a romance, what could be better?

    Continuing the great x-read of 2017… So Chuck Austen… Each volume of his run on Uncanny X-men has gotten, in my opinion, progressively worse to the point where I have grown to cringe whenever I see another Austen book coming up next in the chronology. This one, though? This really wasn’t that bad. It is basically a retelling of Romeo and Juliet in the x-verse with a little bit of the Hatfields and the McCoys. The plot itself has been done, but is handled pretty well.

The plot itself has been done, but is handled pretty well. The dialogue is particularly over the top and melodramatic but in a retelling of Shakespeare, I assume that was intentional. There are still issues. Paige (while a bit better in this volume, to be fair) is still vapid and completely unlike her earlier characterization and her relationship with Warren continues to be odd and a little creepy (particularly when they are having sex in the sky while her whole family is looking up. Ummmm?). Polaris, also, is very out of character (I am assuming that this will eventually be part of the plot, though as she is so obviously acting strange…). Most of the X-men in this book are tangential and unnecessary to the story. But I am going to give credit where credit is due. I think that this volume is okay. It’s far better than the earlier volumes and doesn’t completely make me think that Austen is not suited at all for this kind of writing. I think it would have even managed three stars from me if I wasn’t still angry that Austen basically ruined the personalities of some of my favorite characters. Ha. Maybe that’s just being petty at this point, but so be it.

    Sad sweet and oh so fluffy!! Okay I am a huge X-Men fan. I I am a fan of random characters most people probably forget or don't even know existed. Icarus is one of my favorites and this book is well about him. The X-Men of course do show up to handle a situation but the story is mostly about Icarus and his first love. I love the art and I love the story. Sad sweet and oh so fluffy!! Okay I am a huge X-Men fan. I I am a fan of random characters most people probably forget or don't even know existed.

    This derivative garbage is barely readable. Austen's dialog and understanding of characters has always been his weak point, so when he doesn't even bother crafting his own story, it's clear How Bad he is at writing comics. This is still a massive improvement over The Draco, but it's hard to imagine him getting worse than that, or even managing to maintain that level of unreadability.

    Editorial Team: Hey Chuck this looks like you literally just copied Romeo And Juliet. Could you maybe write something better? Chuck Austen: Say no more fam. Gonna write some gross sex between a teenager and an adult while they fly above the teenagers mom!

    The problem here is that I believe someone thought this was deep or a touching homage to a classic work, and it's not. It's just painful. The problem here is that I believe someone thought this was deep or a touching homage to a classic work, and it's not. It's just painful.

    This should have just been a separate story. Having Wolverine and Nightcrawler be "background" characters with no personality was lame. The story itself was pretty good. Not into this art either.

    So much melodrama! And it already feels like a lot of this is being retread. The angel characters are the same? It feels out of proportion.

    The 5th volume of the Uncanny X-Men is the best of Chuck Austen's tenure on the title - only because he had to rip off William Shakespeare to do it. Jay Guthrie is a member of the Kentucky Guthrie siblings, which have spawned X-Men members Cannonball and Husk. Julia Cabot is a waitress from the Cabot family, whose lineage has a mad-on for anything different from their Southern values. Their Romeo & Juliet relationship fans the flames for a showdown between the X-Men and the armored-up Cabots, le The 5th volume of the Uncanny X-Men is the best of Chuck Austen's tenure on the title - only because he had to rip off William Shakespeare to do it.

Julia Cabot is a waitress from the Cabot family, whose lineage has a mad-on for anything different from their Southern values. Their Romeo & Juliet relationship fans the flames for a showdown between the X-Men and the armored-up Cabots, leaving everyone marred by the conflict. As a Shakespeare tale, the story of Jay and Julia is a good riff; the ancillary portions just feel forced. Archangel finally apologizes to Wolverine about his dislike of the feral mutant, and Logan nonchalantly accepts it. Polaris is still being portrayed as a slightly unhinged X-Man with a desire for destruction. Husk actually gets busy with Archangel IN MID-AIR while the team and her family look on from below. While artist Salvador Larroca continues to pencil fantastic images, it is a shame to see it wasted on arcs like these. This book would be better off lying with the fishes than the angels.

    Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear. This was crazy; an attempt at recreating Romeo and Juliet through non-X-men mutants in a weird backwoods side story. Oh my. I put two stars initially but I might downgrade to one after I have finished trying to get my head in order about this one.

    Not as bad as Draco. It is actually an interesting Romeo & Juliet variant, althought those farmers in giant mecha robots were ridiculous. Chuck Austen tried but it was better to leave Uncanny X-Men in more skilled hands.

    I actually wish I HADN'T sold this on eBay, because its a retelling of the Romeo and Juliet story, and I could use it with my students. Other than getting a surly teen's interest, this is merely marginally more bearable than Austin's other fare.

    An X-Men version of Romeo and Juliet? Well, actually that part was okay, but the dialog was kind of implausible, as were some of the plot contrivances.
