I just got my TPB of Generation X in the mail.  I'm quite happy, I've had the first couple of issues, well, since they came out and I've always been fond of them, the funky artwork in particular.  I scanned them in to my iPad a while ago and they wre the first ones I read on the new big iPad Pro and they look gorgeous (it's a perfect comic book reading size, I know I said that about the Air model, but seriously, it's a 1:1 scale).  The books went for four issues before the big Age Of Apocalypse thing changed everything around for four months, right in their prime, and when the book came back, I felt like I'd missed an episode of a soap or something.

That's where this new TPB picks up.  The art is still gorgeous... for a couple issues, but I don't know if the artists got tired or changed, but the quality starts to go downhill for me.  It doesn't look as exquisite or detailed as it's powerful premiere, and I think I credit this to the artists' exhaustion.  It's a hard book to do, and screw AoA for giving me four less issues of this continuity in that style (though they AoA books were done in the same style, and I may have to dig them up, but it made the continuity of the series suffer right when it was getting going).

This time reading I felt like I could start picturing the live action version in my head, which iI'd never been able to do before.  I started realizing that if this was real (and not like the garbage pilot Fox made), it would look like Farscape, which would be DOPE.  Those freaky Jim Henson style creatures, the leather, etc.  I would be all over that.
