I thought the X-books were fine until Schism. Age Of X was a wonderful crossover that's incredibly underrated, and I liked the Messiah Complex Trilogy, even if I despise what it did to Bishop, and was let down by the overall lack of fallout from the series. There were also 2 X-Force runs that merit mention; 1 decent, and the other spectacular. Remender's Uncanny X-Force is one of the best modern X-series done. It's a super-great read, and really took the books to a whole new level. Cannot rave about that book enough.
From Schism it went downhill, IMO, although I did like the initial Bendis stuff (why'd they change the 05 costumes though, the new ones were terrible).
Uncanny could be the greatest book in comic history right now, but I'm not paying for anything by Greg Land. I won't contribute a red cent to that man's career, even if I miss out.
I think I'm in for some boring comics soon. I've ordered what I believe to be a complete collection of Extreme's titles. Youngblood and most, if not all,and related books. I'm in for some pain, and my best hope is mere boredom.
