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?

Not me. Some people had/have good things to say about the Kelly/Seagle runs, but for me they are yet more reasons for my very low opinion of X-comics (and many other superhero comics) in the 1990s.

Bachalo I generally like - in X-books especially Generation X and his "Supernovas" collab with Mike Carey - but not what he did with Kelly and Seagle. Here, I have to mention that Rogue is my favourite X-Man and I did not like AT ALL how under Kelly/Seagle she became even more of a wimp than she had already been under Lobdell/Nicieza. Special mention to the crappy Agee Institute arc which prefigured a crappy movie, X-Men: The Last Stand.
