Wolverine and the X-Men
Spinning directly out of X-MEN: SCHISM, the X-Men are split in two. In the oversized debut issue of the new ongoing flagship X-series, Wolverine takes one half of the X-Men back to Westchester to start over again with a new school, a new student body and a lot of surprises up his sleeve. But when the new Hellfire Club decides they don't like what the ol' Canucklehead has started, and decide to burn the place to the ground, will the school even outlast its first day?

Definitely one of the weirdest X-Men stories I've read. The artwork is confusing and the story is unbelievable even by comic book standards. Twelve year olds running the Hellfire club while still acting like babies, armies of soldiers shooting out of a gun, iceman making conscious being out of ice; the whole thing is just weird. Best to avoid.

Aaron carries on with ongoing plotlines in this volume, featuring the faculty and students of the Jean Grey School contending primarily with a circus that happens to include the Frankenstein Monster, still seeking revenge against the bloodline of his creator. The characterization is worlds better than what you'd get out of Bendis, and even though Wolverine is one half of the title and appears throughout, Aaron wisely lets other characters shine as he goes along.

While it's entertaining to read, this volume is not a necessary part of the AVX canon. In skipping it you will miss nothing.

An up and down collection for the series, wrapping up Avengers versus X-Men in a second half from the Jean Grey school. Some of the art doesn't work- Bachalo, fortunately, is confined to a single issue. And there is a problem with timing- two entire issues get jammed in between tie-in issues to the larger event. A character in one of those issues, Doop, is a pointless character, and the villains in the other, the Children of the Corn version of the Hellfire Club, are just silly. Of this volume, an issue that concerns itself with the X-Men getting ready to confront the Phoenix empowered Cyclops is actually the best; it demonstrates Aaron's good storytelling abilities.

An improvement on the other volumes, largely because Bradshaw's art takes up three out of four issues in this collection. Jason Aaron's writing is fairly good, even if Wolverine must be the main character. The first three issues are a chaotic ride with multiple storylines in and beyond the school. Bradshaw's art, while not distinctive, looks brilliant in contrast to the art of Bachalo, who does the art in the final issue. Bachalo's style is painful, to say the least.

First volume of a new series, collecting four issues. In the wake of a breaking point between the X-Men, Wolverine takes half the team and most of the students back east to restart a school for students to learn, something that apparently hasn't occurred to Cyclops, who spent the last few years prior to this building himself up into an isolationist dictator of sorts. The story does have a man out of his element feel to it, as Wolverine finds himself headmaster of the new school. However, it is severely hampered by the art in the first three issues. Chris Bachalo does have his fans, but I find his style reprehensibly bad, and incomprehensible at times. His characters are barely human at times, hideously ugly (even those who aren't meant to be ugly). The art in the last issue, by Nick Bradshaw, while nothing to write home about, comes almost as a relief compared to the pure dreck from Bachalo.

I wouldn't really call this an "x-men" book, yet it is bloody fun.

Hank McCoy: "Your alien attackers must have used some fort of matter transmution ray. It weakened the very atomic structure of your usually unbreakable, unbendable adamantium bones, making them, well, breakable." Speaking to Wolverine of his failed attempt to rob a casino.
