Flashbacks consisting of Cyclops' time as a member of the X-Men under the guidance of Professor X fill the pages of this book which is the prelude to the next X-Men event, Schism.
The GoodI'm usually not one who enjoys X-books, especially preludes to major summer events. Many times, they're lackluster overall, but in issue one of Prelude to Schism, we get more than a set-up to a major story arc. We get to view the relationship between Cyclops and Charles Xavier over the years, and you know what? It's a page turner. We get to view brief moments in this father-son relationship and how Charles wants to shape his young mind.
The writing of Paul Jenkins will keep you glued to the page. Yes, this comic is a lot of two guys talking to each other, but it's incredibly interesting because we get to see more private moments between two characters we don't get to see interact on a personal level that much. Aside from that, you'll fly through this issue, in a good way. It's a quick read, or least it feels like it because I was really dragged into the story.
