This is the final volume of 12 issues marking the end of Grant Morrison’s series. This is the epic third act and it is literally all go. There is a secret identity revealed, the re-appearance of an old adversary and plenty of deaths. Plus a weird future epilogue which may or may not come to pass.
There are quite a few artists and styles in evidence here. There is also some of the boldest colouration we have seen to date with huge blocks of emotional primal colours.
Extras wise we have Morrison’s eleven page treatment outlining in detail what was currently wrong with the X-Men title and how he intended to fix it. This is a fascinating read and it is interesting to see what changed from his original vision to the final pages. There is also a single page of cover art.
