Decimation: X-Men - The Day After Reviews

    The Day After. Claremont’s contribution has some nice character moments, but spends too much time on a few plot points and checking in with a bunch of different mutants to be particularly great [6/10].House Arrest (177-179). This sets up an intriguing new status quo for the X-Men, with their Sentinel wardens. The downside of the story is the X-Men’s incompetence against the Sentinels (and *all* the fighting), but the issue of who’s really lost their powers comes across quite well [6.5/10].What Lorna Saw (180-181). A nice follow-up to the previous story, but at the same time it’s weird, doesn’t make a lot of sense, and doesn’t actually have a conclusion(!). Great connection to Milligan’s X-Force though [6/10].

    I was excited when I found this cheap at the used book store and was looking forward to finding out what happened after the cataclysmic events at the end of House of M. Sadly, the writing in this book is really, really bad. I suppose I've been spoiled by all the well-written stuff I've been finding lately, so my wrath against all sub-par comics comes out on this one poor X-Men title. The characters were indistinguishable from one another, the action was more or less incomprehensible and -- despite the fact that like 99% of the mutants on Earth had just lost their powers, I didn't feel a damn thing for these people. It was just bad. Couldn't bring myself to finish it.

    This starts off with a competent epilogue to House of M, but as a whole it doesn't really work, as this volume spends most of its pages setting up storylines in an uneven and ultimately unsatisfying way.Peter Milligan is a talented but frustratingly inconsistent writer. He specializes in odd characters who don't really act in realistic ways, which can work in the offbeat indie book--his Human Target, for example, was a masterful demonstration of how he can combine questions of identity and oblique, symbolic characterization with a thrilling action story. But here his odd, not-quite-believable characters fit uneasily with the standard superhero elements. The main villains of the piece are a ragtag bunch of human terrorists led by a creepy zealot called the Leper Queen. But these terrorists only pose a symbolic threat to the X-Men, not a physical one. While House of M has sent the X-Men running about with robots and terrorists, you get the feeling that Milligan is more interested in Gazer, the bulbous-eyed character orbiting the earth, dying of radiation poisoning and chatting with his dead torso companion. But Gazer's only there for five pages, tops, before donning his spacesuit and heading off to die. You almost wish Milligan would focus on him, and leave the bog-standard and disappointing super-heroics behind on Earth.

    Establishing the tone and political atmosphere of the world post-"House of M". Literally, this collection deals with the reaction of the mutant community one day after they learn that over 90% of the mutant population worldwide has lost their powers due to the Scarlet Witch's snap decision for there to be "No More Mutants".We see the different fractions of society mobilizing in the fallout. The X-men scramble to stay together and regroup. The government sets up the Sentinel Squad. A stronger anti-mutant sentiment begins to grow amongst the humans. And a small fraction of the humans decide that now is the time to rid the planet of mutants once and for all.There are some really nice moments of character growth in these pages; but, for the most part, the focus is on how the Marvel Universe is restructuring for the next big cross-over event. I would say it is an important read, but not imperative to understanding the overall story arc of the MU.3/5

    The Xmen are recovering from House of M, and then the Sentinals appear. A nice little story but should be read as part of the Decimation series, and you really need to have read House of M too. Nice artwork though.

    Dreadful nonsense based on a stupid editorial idea. Extremely poorly written. Chaotic. Begins new plots and spontaneously abandons them in favor of new ones. The cliff hanger ending felt more like a non-ending, at this point i certainly wasn't hungry for more. Don't waste your time.

    Mutant powers have been stripped from many of the superheroes and those without have to find out what they can do now with their lives. The remaining x-men try to consolidate their lives and on top of that there's a bunch of peole trying to kill them.

    Funciona como enlace entre Dinastía de M y Decimation más que otra cosa, exponer la situación desde el punto de vista de los Xmen y poco más.

    Continuing the (sometimes) great x-read of 2017...Since I am at the very tail end of 2017 and I haven't updated my reading in quite a while so I am "cheating" and just kind of writing one review for all of the volumes that I have read so that I can get them up by the end of the year.The aftermath of M day has been mixed to say the least. There were a few high points (Cable and Deadpool, the 198, the beginning of the new X-factor series... and more than a fair share of low points (the new Excalibur, Colossus, Deadly Genesis...). It certainly has not come across as a well-orchestrated and planned out event at this point. (And the plot armor of the main characters primarily being the ones that retained their powers is a bit ridiculous, but that is to be expected.)At any rate, my x-read of 2017 is going to extend into 2018 since I am still not close to catching up. It may have to slow down in velocity a bit so that I can do a bit more "real" reading but the slog shall continue...

    A lot of setup with no real payoff.

    Quiero aclarar primero que nada que al señalar el presente libro, no me refiero solo a X-Men: The Day After sino a todo el Estado de Decimation, pero al incluir a tantos cómics (mínimo 59) no quiero poner 59 libros jajaja... una vez esto, empiezo mi critica.Este es un estado muy bueno de lo que paso con los mutantes después de el M-Day (House of M) y como resultado de las tres palabras mas oscuras de la Bruja Escarlata... "No mas Mutantes". Aun cuando se retoma en gran parte muchos puntos de vista, se siente que falta ver mas la visión de la comunidad de superheroes en general y no solo la de los mutantes, después del gran colapso de una sociedad antes abundante en Mutantes. Solo se retoma un poco de la visión desde l punto de vista de los Avengers y sus pequeñas intervenciones.Es un gran estado y como todo buen estado, deja aun con muchas dudas de que es lo que pasara después... pero estos son cambios que afectan al mundo Marvel en general y no es algo que se pueda y deba resolver de un día para otro. Es muy completo y complejo y cabe destacar que se nota en la calidad la influencia de los diferentes artistas, pero en general mantiene un nivel alto de calidad como lo presenta el Universo Marvel en general. un estado muy necesario para entender el universo de Marvel moderno

    The Day After was a bit of a disappointing boring read. It starts off interesting enough, showing the dramatic results M Day has had on mutants across the globe, knocking down the numbers from millions to a few hundred left. But I don't think it was expressed successfully, it all feels rushed. There's a lot of subplots being thrown in, a lot of set up creating more questions than answers, and frankly, I don't care much for finding out where any of these events are headed. The characters are real bland/poorly written. None of them stand out or have the likability to really care enough for what direction these subplots are going [with the exception of the Leper Queen, my first introduction to this character and it actually sparked an interest/curiosity for me.] Overall it feels like there's a lack of focus; too many subplots shoved in to give any of them a proper amount of pages to resonate successfully to readers. Would not recommend, you wont remember it in t-half an hour.

    A volume containing three short arcs that show the immediate effects of the Scarlet Witch making most mutants lose their powers in House of M. As would be expected, mass chaos results. Riots, former mutants turned out of their homes, and some putting themselves in danger while convinced that the effect is temporary. The first issue which shows most of this is interesting, but ultimately there's no distinct story. The House Arrest arc shows the X-Men fighting back against giant Sentinels which have landed at the X-Mansion. The last couple of issues show the inexplicable arrival of the untranslatable creature Doop, which was filled with things that made no sense to me. A volume with a strong start that ended confusingly.

    Man, you can hardly tell a story in X-Men before it gets retconned to fuck. At the end of House of M Iceman had been depowered. Now, repowered. Why? Because, like, a day's long enough for a bummer to last. Give us a break, he's a really popular character. Fuck off!Apart from that, good. I like that it starts on a moment of genuine horror and builds into a growing sense of alienation. I also like that it works so well thematically, with ex-mutants dancing along the line of human/mutant identity, a position which has always been fraught because mutants ARE humans but socially and politically there's a massive divide. That stuff's really good.

    This X-men tale was a mixed bag. First, I thought the artwork was a little weak and sometimes a bit off for certain characters. The story itself had some good dialogue but a few cheesy moments. I really didn't care for the Iceman, Havok, and Polaris love triangle. The Mystique trying to get a man for Rogue plot points were a bit cheesy as well. There was a little bit of action and as a whole I enjoyed looking at how the House of M event effected the mutant community especially the X-men fan favorite characters. It was a good story with a few weak points.

    With the mutant population reduced drastically, the government places security forces around Xavier mansion to protect the remaining mutants. What follows is the usual problems between X-men and humans and how they view each other. These issues are obvious but they are also issues that have been tread before so I was hoping for a bit more. The writing is fine and the art is great but nothing is really stellar about this story.

    This first Volume of the post M-Day graphic novels deals with the direct aftermath of the House of M events at the X-Mansion. Not too much to say here. Art was ok. Story ok. Just an overall ok Volume, with nothing huge coming out of it. Continues the story though, which is very important for me.Recommend, if you are trying to get the complete story of the X-Men like I am.

    I've read House of M and even a lot of the stuff that came after. I haven't ever read the immediate fall out.I liked this. Despite the fact that it's been a while since I read House of M I still understood enough to enjoy this stuff. There are a lot of characters because this is X-Men.The art is good comic art. It's just soft enough to be interesting.

    Más historias prescindibles de un autor que suele ser genial y unos personajes que pueden ser muchos más interesantes. Si después consigo los números de Claremont quizás escriba una reseña más completa, ya que para esto sólo me baso en los números 11 al 13 del Vol. 3 de la edición de Panini.

    Flojita historia que explora las consecuenvias de Dinastía de M, pero centrada demasiado en una Polaris que actúa de forma poco lógica.
