    Picked this up for two bucks, so I didn t expect much of it But I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the story Sorry to see the series didn t go forthan two trades

    This was okay It s basically cops going around a mutant only city and solving crimes It reminds me of Gotham Central maybe Or like a TV they d put on FOX that relates to Marvel but not too much I didn t hate it, didn t love it I d go with a 2.5.

    I was surprised at this one I hadn t intended to read the book, but the boys brought it home from the library Seeing it was a Marvel Knights title, I told them that they couldn t read it until I checked it out I d heard of District X a while back and knew it was a crime drama in the X men setting with Bishop as a main character Nothing about that really appealed to me On reading it Bishop was a secondary character and the story largely focused on a Cuban police officer whose wife is a muta I was surprised at this one I hadn t intended to read the book, but the boys brought it home from the library Seeing it was a Marvel Knights title, I told them that they couldn t read it until I checked it out I d heard of District X a while back and knew it was a crime drama in the X men setting with Bishop as a main character Nothing about that really appealed to me On reading it Bishop was a secondary character and the story largely focused on a Cuban police officer whose wife is a mutant The story and the characters were very interesting and the setting turned out to be a big part of why it was so good I d recommend this one

    For the most part, I m enjoying the experimental time in the early 200s, where they started putting X characters in books that bend the superhero genre Brian K Vaughan s Mystique by Brian K Vaughan Ultimate Collection was a fun little aside into espionage, and this is a decent attempt at a police procedural in Mutant Town a fictional area in ManhattanI m not sure how close it is to Fabletown in the DC Vertigo Universe, but I imagine they re neighbors.The story focuses mostly on non X Men For the most part, I m enjoying the experimental time in the early 200s, where they started putting X characters in books that bend the superhero genre Brian K Vaughan s Mystique by Brian K Vaughan Ultimate Collection was a fun little aside into espionage, and this is a decent attempt at a police procedural in Mutant Town a fictional area in ManhattanI m not sure how close it is to Fabletown in the DC Vertigo Universe, but I imagine they re neighbors.The story focuses mostly on non X Men characters, which works Bishop s appearance is in line with his role in the latter half of Chris Claremont s X Treme X Men, Vol 6 Intifada run, as well as his appearance in New X Men, where he tries to solve the non murder of Emma Frost.The melodrama is on par with your average Law Order episode but with the bonus of most of the characters having mutant powers.It s also interesting that they chose to include the use of a new drug for mutants, Juice, rather than relying on Kick, which factored into Grant Morrison s New X Men run.If you re a fan of police procedurals, check this out It s also similar in tone to Peter David s second run on X Factor by Peter David The Complete Collection, Volume 1, which I can t wait to get to

    Continuing the x read of 2017 And wow This one shocked the heck out of me So good So unlike other Marvel titles that I have read A good plot with some great twists and a lot of social statements that aren t made easily or in an offhand manner Honestly, this is one of the best X comics that I have ever read though it hardly counts as an X comic in a lot of ways Maybe it was just the right time, but I really really dug this story Interested to see what the next volume brings.

    Expected nothing from the book, pick it only becouse symbolical price in our e store and Bishop s apperance. And got a wonderful story about mutants mixed with suburbs and as a whole, it worked perfectly

    Didn t expect to like this as much as I did A good yarn, similar feeling to good Wolverine vol 3 stories.

    I saw this one on Marvel Unlimited and had never heard of it I tried this one after thinking, Oh, look Marvel s answer for Gotham Central Of course I figured it would be an epic failure, but let s give it a go, huh What a pleasant surprise.A local cop who works in a town filled with mutants is paired up with a new partner working for the feds The new partner happens to be Lucas Bishop and the two set off to work some death investigations that have their cause rooted in drug sales This do I saw this one on Marvel Unlimited and had never heard of it I tried this one after thinking, Oh, look Marvel s answer for Gotham Central Of course I figured it would be an epic failure, but let s give it a go, huh What a pleasant surprise.A local cop who works in a town filled with mutants is paired up with a new partner working for the feds The new partner happens to be Lucas Bishop and the two set off to work some death investigations that have their cause rooted in drug sales This doesn t have as big a cast as Gotham Central, which had two full shifts of detectives It has a bit of the same feel though, but is also different enough to feel new.I enjoyed this one and I ll press on through the next trade
