So, I'm not a total idiot when it comes to X-Men, but I'm definitely no expert. Of all the (many) X-books out there, this one seems to appeal to me the most. I'm wondering, though, if picking this up without much back-knowledge would be a mistake.

(I know who the big hitters in the X-universe are and their primary motivations [Wolverine, Cyclops, Magneto, etc.], but I have no idea who, for example, Fantomex is).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Its fcking awesome... Though I'm having a hard time recommending it for sure without any previous knowledge whatsoever. If you tell me you want to pick up some trades (of this series) then I'd tell you to go for it.

@Darthmat: It has been very readable for all 24 issues, so I'd say it is the right series to start with. This is the adult version of the Marvel universe. if you need info on characters use wiki, or comic vine catalog. I still dont understand who phantomex is.
