Amazing X-Men

So as most of you know, I am a Jason Aaron fan, despite online criticism. However, since Yost and Kyle have taken over this title it has been truly "amazing". Does anyone else like this creative team switch up?

On another note, what about the writer switch in XX-Men? I really liked 18.

I LOVE Yost/Kyle. I think their work on Amazing is much better and they are so passionate about X-Men (especially the ANAD). I also enjoyed XX-Men #18. I like Wood's 1st X-Men run but his work with the all female team just wasn't working for me. Guggenheim take is refreshing (good to seem them not fighting and being overly petty), entertaining dialogue, good balance of panel time for the stars of the book, and an interesting plot.

Fairly fun run so far. It really is just about making the characters look as awesome as possible....fighting and holding back a country filled with Wendigo's = Awesome as possible

I liked X-Men 18 too, I actually liked Woods run and wished we saw more of the sisterhood. I think Wood was a little too creatively controlled around the BOTA and it really showed when he struggled to develop characters.

Kyle and Yost on an X-Men title rarely disappoints so I expected them to knock it out of the park with Amazing X-Men. Glad I'm not the only Aaron fan on the X-Men forums as well. I liked X-Men when Wood was on it so I was little skeptical but I definitely enjoyed issue 18

IMO, it's pretty earlier to call. I am going to miss the Sisterhood. And I don't care much for Space Missions..

They gave Rockslide the best entrance into a comic possible. I love Santo. So I approve of this book. X-23 gets Bendis. Haaaaaa.

Waiting for the next arc, this Wendigo stuff is a miss for me.

I don't know, guys. I cannot fully appreciate this title.

I tried. I tend to give X titles a fair shot, even if I wasn't that interested initially. Not really liking this storyline.

There's not much to like right now, this material feels offhand and unfiltered, like the first expression they were welcomed in the X-office was "Hey you, we need a story asap, don't put a lot of thought in it, just make it happen in an hour maybe two" instead of real Welcome :)

I still hope to have K/Y that I learned to appreciate back!

The few things I've actually been disliking about Uncanny X-Men & All New X-Men is how its constantly revolving around the Avengers/Wolverine/Shield. I love Amazing X-Men because its a book that actually gets the hell away from most of that crap and has its own story. We're seeing characters like Rockslide and Northstar who aren't the 8 X-Men we see in every book - it's nice to get something new, and although it might not be the most intense or Avenger-fied story - it's light and fun and def. enjoyable - loving it K/Y!
