So, in summary: 'X-men: Legacy is rubbish despite my not having read it.'

Well done.

Since I plan on picking this up next week, it would possibly do me some good to read what came before. Could anyone give a condensed essential list of what I'd need to understand the story so far?

Here is the reading order I took (if memory serves) after finishing Morrison/Whedon's run:

house of m

decimation: day after

deadly genesis

shiar

endangered

messiah complex

original sin

divided

x23 innocence lost/ target x

x force volumes 1 - 2

messiah war

x force volume 3

manifest destiny

uncanny x-men / dark avengers: utopia

second coming

birth of generation hope

gen hope future four letter word

uncanny x force to issue 12

schism

uncanny x force to issue 19

AvX

I trimmed a fair amount of fat; yet, what's noted, in all fairness, gives a well-read account for the most part.

Nowhere Men starts this week.

If you enjoyed Manhattan Projects, I suggest you all give it a once-over.

Saga

Flash

Walking Dead

Animal Man

X-Men: Legacy

Invincible

I usually stick with trades.

I very much enjoyed Legacy; on the other hand, Bendis' tepid writing somewhat spoiled ANX for me (one hopes this is not a constant) - though I suppose I should not look for worthwhile prose inside of a flagship comic in this day and age.

Crossovers are fine as long as they don't lead to derivative events or countless spin-offs. Since, for the most part, they are quite bland; whenever I'm forced to purchase the Blue Beetle, I smell corporate encroachment. .

Here are a few of my favourite series:

Y the last man

Watchmen

(If you ignore most of what I've suggested, do, without hesitance, check out Maus.)
