Das Buch ist ein massiver Wälzer und wiegt 3,3 kg, ist in Kunstleder gebunden und anscheinend gut verarbeitet. Dabei gehe ich davon aus, daß das Buch Herumwerfen und sorglose Behandlung nicht unbeschadet überstehen wird, weil es eben so schwer ist.

Es enthält die von Grant Morrison geschriebenen X-Men Stories, die einen geschlossenen Bogen bilden. Die neuen Gegner der X-Men sind Cassandra Nova (die einen weiteren Auftritt in den Astonishing X-Men hat), (John) Sublime mit seinen U-Men und Studenten aus den eigenen Reihen. Allerdings muß man den Band mehr als einmal lesen, um mitzubekommen, was seit Anfang an läuft und sich erst später entwickelt.

Mir gefällt der grafische Stil, abgesehen von dem Vierteiler "Assault on Weapon Plus", der mir etwas zu eigen ist (...man sehe sich die Gesichter an...). Die Behandlung der einzelnen Charaktere und deren Entwicklung ist gut. Auch wenn mir viele Charaktere persönlich nicht gefallen (wie z.B. Quentin oder Bird), so ist klar, daß es solche Leute geben muß, schließlich haben wir ihre Gegenstücke unter uns. Nur Professor X und Magneto sind blaß, bzw. nicht das, was sie sein müßten - im Falle von Magneto kann das aber gewollt sein, da er letzten Endes als ein Relikt dargestellt wird, das der Gegenwart nichts mehr zu sagen hat. Bei Professor X würde ich mir aber etwas mehr Intelligenz und Initiative erwarten, bei dem was sich an seiner Schule abspielt.
Es gibt ein paar unklare Punkte bezüglich Xorn und Magneto, die später diskutiert worden sind. Ich würde sagen, daß man zuerst das eine im Sinn hatte und dann nachträglich das andere draus gemacht hat, wodurch die Widersprüche zustande kommen.

Grant Morrison versteht es wirklich eine Figur oder ein Team zu nehmen und etwas ganz Neues daraus zu schaffen. Dabei entdeckt man meist erst nach mehrmaliger Lektüre alle Facetten (wenn überhaupt). Bei den X-Men schafft er beispielsweise einen Status Quo der sogar einige Marvel-Events überlebte. Was mittlerweile schon etwas Besonderes ist.

HASH(0x983efb94) von 5 Sternen New X-Men Omnibus (2012, NEW EDITION) 13. August 2012
Von Bruno M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a short and concise review just to compare the new edition of the New X-Men Omnibus with the original one. I will not delve into the quality of the story and art, as you can find plenty of great and useful reviews about it in this same webpage and all around the Internet.

- Both editions include exactly the same issues: New X-Men #114 to 154 and the New X-Men Annual 2001, all written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by a wide array of artists, including Frank Quitely, Phil Jiménez, Chris Bachalo and Marc Silvestri among others.

- The main difference between the two editions is that this new 2012 edition features a SEWN-BINDING that allows a much more comfortable and better reading: the art can be fully appreciated this way as there is no gutter loss. The old edition has a glued-binding which is in every way inferior, making the reading more difficult as it doesn't lie flat when opened and has significant gutter loss in spread pages. So this is a dramatical improvement regarding the original edition.

- On a somewhat negative aspect, the paper stock of this new edition is of a lighter weight than the previous one. But don't worry, this is high-quality paper stock and the printing is excellent. I would rate the old paper stock as 5 stars and the new one as 4 and 1/2 stars.

- This new edition features a few more pages of extras, it's not an essential difference, as the old edition has its nice share of extras too, but it's good to see some more sketches and Morrison's script for New X-Men #121 (the "silent" issue).

- The dustjacket features a different cover by Frank Quitely, the same artist of the previous one. But the art of the original dustjacket is also showcased inside of the book.

Conclusion:
Mainly because of the sewn-binding, this is a better edition (as the contents and general quality are pretty much the same). This Omnibus is definitely much more comfortable to read than the old one. Don't get me wrong, the original New X-Men Omnibus is a beautiful and very well-done book, but Marvel has improved the production of the Omnibus and when comparing the two editions, the 2012 one is the best one.

HASH(0x98b7c15c) von 5 Sternen Yes, it's 1096 pages. But it's all one story. 29. Dezember 2006
Von Adam Cadre - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A problem that has always plagued superhero comics is that of stasis. Marvel's core business is not comics; it's maintaining a stable of properties that can be turned into movies and toys. These properties have to stay recognizable. So if a writer dares to allow characters to grow, to overcome their problems -- the hard-luck college guy ends a string of bad relationships and is happily married, the android develops human emotion, the villain goes straight, a character dies a noble death -- someone else gets brought in and it's "back to basics!" Divorce the wife! Wipe the robot's memory! Make the reformed guy go bad again! Resurrect the dead girl!

Morrison knew this, but didn't care: "Whatever happened before, whatever happens after, I'm writing a BOOK." His entire run, though divided into arcs, is one long story, with a beginning, a middle, and a beautiful Joycean ending. Bits foreshadowing the twists of his thirty-second issue are sprinkled into his fourth... many comics writers slip portentious pages of shadowy figures up to mysterious doings into their stories, but New X-Men offered the delicious pleasure of discovering clues that in retrospect could not be more obvious but at the time didn't even look like clues.

And this isn't form without content. Morrison approached the X-Men from the following angle: "Hey, for the first time in forty years, let's actually use the premise!" No longer is the mutant idea just there as a hook for children's adventure stories (Stan Lee) or teenage melodrama (Chris Claremont); Morrison, arguing that there's no need for the mutant idea to be allegorical to be interesting or relevant, took the idea of a new species beginning to supplant humankind and wrote a science fiction epic around it. And for the first time, Xavier's becomes an actual school, with a faculty made up of several of the 20th-century X-Men and 152 teenage students who take academic classes along with those on mastering one's powers. They're not future superheroes. They're just trying to prevent more genocide in a world that is freaking out about the end of the human race.

Naturally, everything Morrison did was quickly undone. That's the nature of the business. But who cares? Just read this book. It stands alone.

HASH(0x982896fc) von 5 Sternen The best X-Men run in at least two decades 9. Juli 2007
Von Justin G. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Remember when Uncanny X-Men was a cutting edge comic? When I started reading the X-Men titles in 1990, they had this mystique surrounding them. X-Men was the dangerous superhero team that the "cool" comic geeks followed. Looking back it seems a bit ridiculous. A lot of that mystique came from a single character (Wolverine), dynamic artwork by Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri, etc. and continuity so baffling that only the truly obsessive could keep track. Unfortunately the X-Men titles began to slide into mediocrity shortly after I started reading them. Just when I was ready to stop reading them altogether, Marvel decided to really shake things up.

They brought in Grant Morrison. By placing more emphasis on character development and sharper dialogue than on spandex slug-fests, Morrison, along with writers like Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Millar, Warren Ellis, and Garth Ennis, are responsible for what has to be the best wave of comics since Frank Miller and Alan Moore started deconstructing the genre back in the mid 80's.

It says a lot that of the two X-Men Omnibus volumes released so far, one contains Chris Claremont's initial run on Uncanny X-Men and the other is Grant Morrison's entire New X-Men run. Both runs revolutionized their respective titles, smashing the status quo and challenging traditions. Morrison's run introduced a major new villain, unleashed a new wave of Sentinels, destroyed Genosha, killing 16 million mutants, and made Emma Frost an A-list character...and that's just the first four issues! Throughout the run we're treated to a Scott/Jean/Emma love triangle, revelations about the Weapon Plus program that created Wolverine, Xorn, the U-Men, the destruction of the Shi'ar Empire, a riot at Xavier's School, a completely unhinged Magneto, a disturbing vision of the future, and an unforgettable night on the town with Wolverine and Cyclops. Morrison smashes through the X-Men Universe with punk rock-like abandon and uses the shards to put together something new and exciting that would, for a while, make the X-Men an edgy, must-read comic once again. And his movie-inspired uniforms were a huge improvement over the old costumes.

The artwork sadly, is not as consistent as the writing. Nobody managed to stay on the book for more than four consecutive issues, but at least the artwork was (mostly) high quality. I've come to absolutely love Frank Quitely's quirky style, so his issues are my favorites. Ethan Van Sciver (Green Lantern) also shines here, as does Chris Bachalo, who's drawn pretty much every X-book by now. The occasional issue by Leniel Yu, Phil Jiminez, and John Paul Leon are well done, but Igor Kordey's artwork is the low point of the book. His style is just not suited to this kind of title. The final issues were drawn by former X-Men artist (and current Witchblade/Darkness hotshot) Marc Silvestri, who definitely helps end things with a bang.

This is a shining example of what comics in the 21st century can be, and will go down in history as one of the three most important X-Men runs ever. The fact that you can get all of the issues in one mammoth hardcover volume is just the icing on the cake.

HASH(0x98b7d308) von 5 Sternen The absolute best X-Men stories since the Claremont/Byrne era 14. Dezember 2006
Von N. Durham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It was the dawn of the 21st Century. The X-Men finally made a successful trip to the big screen, and in the comic world there were to be some shake ups. Grant Morrison, known for his influential and groundbreaking work on JLA, Animal Man, Doom Patrol, and the Invisibles to name a few, was given the task to breathe new life into the stagnant X-Men series, which had become a series of predictable, overblown, mellowdramatic, military-esque stories that were just plain boring. Re-titling the book New X-Men, Morrison re-shuffles the once too big team into the core of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Beast, and Emma Frost; all of whom have their work cut out for them in the first storyarc collected in this massive volume, which finds the mutant island of Genosha and all it's inhabitants exterminated by a giant Sentinel, and the X-Men come face to face with Professor Xavier's evil twin sister Cassandra Nova. As the volume continues, they meet the mysterious mutant healer Xorn, who joins them and has an impact unlike you can imagine. Soon enough, the Shi'ar make their presence felt, there's a riot at the school, Wolverine makes some shocking discoveries about his past, Cyclops embarks on a psychic affair with Emma Frost, and the Phoenix force inside Jean Grey soon rears it's head. All this sets the stage for Morrison's stunning conclusion, beginning with an old enemy back from the dead (sort of) and then hundreds of years in the future as Wolverine leads a new group of fighters against the evil Beast in pursuit of the Phoenix egg. The first thing you'll notice about Morrison's story is how it branches out in so many directions, yet it all comes together as the volume comes to an end. There are new characters introduced all the time, and they all have their own unique impact, while Morrison weaves a strikingly mature tale not seen before in an X-Men book. The spandex costumes are long gone, Cyclops isn't a total boy scout, and Wolverine is the baddest he's been in a long time. If there's any negative thing to say about this incredibly huge book, it's that because of all the different artists, there is a bit of an uneven feel. However, this is only a minor gripe. Because he couldn't keep up with a monthly title, frequent Morrison collaborator Frank Quitely is supplemented by excellent work by Ethan Van Sciver, John Paul Leon, Keron Grant, Tom Derenick, Phil Jimenez, and even Marc Silvestri. Igor Kordey's art however is a major step down from the aforementioned names, and next to Quitely, his work is here more than anyone elses. That aside, this New X-Men Omnibus features the absolute best X-Men stories ever told since the golden age of Chris Claremont and John Byrne, and if you missed out on Morrison's run or any of the previous TPB's, believe me, this is worth every single penny of the list price.

HASH(0x98b7d4d0) von 5 Sternen Reinventing the X-Men 30. Januar 2007
Von Rev Casey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I first read some of Grant Morrison's "New X-Men" as he neared the end of his run. I was both intrigued and a bit lost. Characters had changed quite radically (White Queen and the Beast), new characters were ubiquitous (Xorn, Beak, Basilisk), and flashy spandex costumes were gone. I was left wondering what had happened to the X-Men.

That said, I gave this hardcover edition magnum opus of Morrison's work a chance and have been handsomely rewarded. Reading Morrison's genuine development of the mutant story in the Marvel universe was a joy. Morrison knows the characters well and takes their relationships in surprising directions. The book is well worth the Amazon price.

The only drawback to Morrison's run (and thus to this hardcover) is the illustration. I can't give this 5 stars because the illustrators just suck sometimes. Frank Quitely's work is the highlight to the book. His pencil work is the perfect compliment to Morrison's storytelling (check out JLA: Earth 2 and We3 by the same team). Ethan Van Sciver (who did stellar work on Green Lantern: Rebirth) makes a good contribution. Phil Jiminez falls in place right behind Quitely.

The other artists should never have picked up a pencil for this storyline. Croatian artist Igor Kordey is some of the worst pencil work I've ever seen. Chris Bachalo used to be good when he first broke into the business but his work is a caricature of itself. People look silly and cartoony. Finally, Marc Silvestri should have stayed at Image. His early X-Men work was truly uncanny. But he's too obsessed with being a caricature of himself, too.

But go ahead and buy this book. Morrison's fantastic story carries the weight even through the issues of crappy drawing. You CANNOT understand the present Marvel universe or X-Men story without this storyline.

Follow this up with the hardcover collections of "Astonishing X-Men" by Joss Whedon and John Cassidy. You'll be glad you did!
