Great artwork and decent writing. I got into this expecting to read the entire series. For whatever reason I just couldn't get into it. I will likely try again at some point because I love Joss Whedon and I love the X-Men.

A perfect place for fans of the X-men to pick up and read. Joss Whedon makes the story easily accessible to new readers by toning down the sometimes confusing continuity that unfortunately follows the X-men. But let me tell you, Gifted does not dissapoint. A perfect read for one of the best X-men storylines of all time.
