I haven't been a big X-fan in a long time, but I'm re-reading all of the Marrow appearances in my collection. I'm re-discovering that I really enjoy Joe Kelly & Chris Bachalo's short run on X-Men. I liked Marrow, Cecelia Reyes & Maggot discovering the X-world. I enjoyed Wolverine & Storm as the vets struggling to figure out how to move forward. There was a lightness and sense of humour mixed in with the adventure and soap opera, but you also saw that the XMen were on their back foot, without the resources and personel they were used to.

Any other fans of this run?

Kelly is a mixed bag, but more bad than good, imo. Overall, he just didn't really contribute much. Seagle was better.

I really liked Maggott and his Cecelia. Not a fan of Marrow, and I don't think the X-Men should have allowed her to join.

I really disliked the "Psi-War" arc. Not only did it fall flat, but just sidelined Betsy. There was no other point to it, when it made claims of being this major thing.

Bachalo no. I find his art so chaotic that I can't tell what's happening most of the time.
