3.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Art May 4 2009
By Daniel J. Mooney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The lower rating on this grpahic novel, is due completely to the art, which I found to be so poor and distracting that it significantly detracted from my enjoyment of the book. The first 5 pages tell a minor story about Mirage, where the art is excellent. However, it then descends into a poorly executed manga-esque art style, that has lots of stiff awkward limbs sticking out, and a very unnatural feel on every page. Characters are often shown with unbelieveably thick necks that shoot up and down from panel to panel like the old He-Man character Meckaneck. The covers included are amazing, but these only work to demonstrate the slip-shodiness of the rest of the art.

On the other hand, the story is interesting and made me want to read more. It revolves around several of the New Mutants showing up to work as teachers in the, now openly mutant, Xavier Academy. Of the old New Mutants who turn up, the actions centers around Dani Moonstar (Mirage), and Xain Coy (Karma), who begin to recruit various new members to the academy. As an overview it may not sound like much, but the characterization is very good. As a story alone I would give it 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Take on the X-Men Universe April 5 2013
By Daneel Olivaw - Published on Amazon.com
This is an extremely accomplished and entertaining book that centers on the enrollment of freshly minted teenaged mutants (none of them turtles) at the Xavier School. No super villain battles, but plenty of real-life angst as these youngsters start to cope with their new lives and the prejudices they face from the world's mistrust of mutants and from each other. This story is filled with characterization and interpersonal drama and guest stars most of the familiar X-Men without overshadowing the emphasis on the newcomers. This is a well written, well drawn, well conceived look at a specific corner of the X-Men universe and represents a sophisticated and enjoyable comic book saga. If you like the X-Men and don't necessarily need epic battles and massive property damage, you should enjoy this book very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is the New Mutants! March 23 2005
By Samanda b Jeude - Published on Amazon.com
Not the -Ultimate X-Men Vol 8-. Danielle Moonstar returns, a reluctant but willing helper to Professor X ... only to be offered a job as a teacher as the Xavier Institute. Well worth the cost, this tale reunites her w/Karma & [tangentially] Magma, & showcases her essential humanity.

Danielle is a reluctant co-worker-to-Prof-er-Charles, unconvinced of her effectiveness even as she talks a toxic teen into coming w/her to Xavier's. The new thrust of Xavier's, as a training/teaching facilty for young outcasts rather than a "next X-men prep" is a bold move, & Dani is a natural ... & Karma, as a triple threat [she's a mutant! she's an Asain! Oooh, gods, she's *GAY*!] addition is charming [if generically drawn; i'm not a big fan of the artist]. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Nov. 9 2006

I had actually picked this book up AFTER reading the New X-Men: Academy X storylines where these featured characters had already returned. The art and story-telling in this compilation were an excellent mesh! I'm actually at work otherwise, i'd go into specifics. Buy this book and find out what I'm talking about.
