    After House of M the X-Men series is total shit. It basically consists of them sitting around in the mansion going "OH MAN, THERE ARE SO FEW OF US NOW... MAN, ONLY SO MANY OF US. WAIT WAIT WAIT, CYCLOPS IS SUPPOSED TO KILL OFF AN ALIEN CIVILIZATION? MAN JOSS WHEADON IS A TERRIBLE WRITER."

    It doesn't tie into the rest of the Marvel Universe and I really see no purpose in reading it. The art is all X-TREME AND LOOK AT DEEZ LINEZZZZ, which I hate.

    Ya, X-Men got really boring. They weren't really even involved in Civil War.

    and it's colossus who's going to destroy breakworld. astonishing is great.

    uncanny is decent, definately not one of brubaker's best stories, but it's still very readable.

    the big x-men event will hit this fall, dealing with the main mutant problems etc...

    Astonishing is :bowdown:

    As is Cable and Deadpool, if you consider it an X title.

    I'm excited to see what this summer "Endangered Species" event will do.

    I trust in Brubaker to turn things around after his space opera storyline.

    Brubaker either writes gold or absolute turds, there is no middle ground with him.

    What were some of his misses? I may have just been fortunate enough to have missed reading them.

    Read Dead Boy Detectives. He does good on whole runs like Catwoman, Captain America, DD, etc. But put him in charge of a small series and it is like :ugh:
