Comics: X-Treme X-Men Vol 1

Amazon Image

X-Treme X-Men Vol. 1 was a real letdown. I could barely get through it. The pace of the story is painfully slow and the artwork does a terrible job of telling it. I had to re-read several pages multiple times because it was unclear if what in the world is supposed to be going on. There are constant cuts forwards and backwards in time and between different story arcs, and there are climactic points in the story where I'm still not entirely sure what exactly occurred. The one interesting part of the story -- the Libris Veritatus (The Book of Truth) -- is given a weak spotlight. I guess they wanted to maintain it for future story arcs, but it comes at the cost of making the first nine issues flat.
