    JUst read it. Quite good, actuallly. Some of the best Ellis since... Nah, I can't say I havn't read anything I didn't liked. But refreshing, anyway. And I had my doubts about Kaare Andrews, cause in the cover he made Emma like, vwry wide load and ridcously short? But nah, great storytelling skills, that Andrews. Panels look like an anime cell.

    10 out fo 10

    Just got my copy today. Haven't read any other of Ellis' previous XMen stuff, and managed to get a chance to read today.

    Felt like a more cynical xmen, which was expected, and more realistic for it too. I also checked the script for direction on Ms. Frost's blocking. Either way, whomever had the idea, it was funny. It felt more like this is why Emma does what she does; as an attention grabber with low self esteem trying to mask it all.

    Looking forward to more, a lot of great dialog, that drew me in, and had me reaing my first xmen comic in years(?) Used to be a big fan, don't think Ive read/bought any since... maybe Morrison.

    Nicely done, Sir.

    That Youtube video summed up all the reasons I love Xenogenesis. I found it funny as a satirical critique.

    Still buying Xenogenesis anyway, to you who rock [Warren and Kaare] I salute you!

    I just read it, and there's one little thing I'm a bit puzzled about : What's this "Mutantes Sans Frontières" thing ? I don't usually read X-Men, so I don't know if that's a new thing or not, but do you realize it means "Female Mutants Without Borders" ?

    The French word for "mutant" is "mutant". "Mutante" is the feminine form.

    Also, Emma Frost reminds me of Julie Powers in Scott Pilgrim : a huge bitch everybody only puts up with because she's dating this really nice guy.

    MSF invented by someone in X-Men years ago -- Chuck Austen, maybe?

    Huh--I kinda assumed that the MSF was your creation. Nice find, then--and after doing a google search, it does seem like it's from Austen's Uncanny run. Just goes to prove that any idea can be good when written well, I suppose.

    Claremont perhaps? Not so much a fan of him myself, but I read that post-Grant Morrison era Christmas issue by Claremeont and Larroca, so maybe there? I don't even know. However, props to you, Warren for using a forgotten X-resource and making click!

    Loved Andrews' work in the Ghost Box special, love him here.

    Does it strike anyone else as odd that Marvel are pitching this line for new readers, and then publishing bi-monthly (same with Aaron's/Kubert's title)?

    Just got this today (I get my comics in bulk every month or so) and, well, I'm not a fan of the artwork at all.

    There are certain faces that just look a off to me, especially the frontal picture of Emma in between Cyke and Storm on the jet near the end.

    But the writing is great, so I'll keep picking it up.
