    Story: 4 stars Artwork: 2 stars Matt Fraction and co. give us two main storylines in this volume, the first being a mutants-only plague unleashed on the X-Men's home island and the second being Emma Frost's mission to do away with Sebastian Shaw once and for all, with Shadowcat and Fantomex along for the ride. I enjoyed both stories but could really do without Greg Land's lightboxed cheesecake artwork.

    The volume was just OK. The whole thing with Emma and Sebastian came to a lackluster conclusion. On the other side of that, the whole mutant virus was also just OK. Not the best book but thankfully it wasn’t terrible either.

    The X-Men have been contaminated and no one has the cure. Meanwhile, others take advantage of the lack of X-Men saviors. Kudos to the Emma Frost moments. Her artwork was off the hook and I'm not talking about just her sex appeal. OVERALL GRADE: B. The X-Men have been contaminated and no one has the cure.

    This turned out to be a decent read, and a lot better than the previous volume. I liked the idea of a bunch of rich kids wanting to be X-men just because they're 'fans'. It's a plot point that's very much in the ilk of Matt Fraction. Also, with most of the 'heavy hitters' stuck on Utopia due to sickness, it gave a chance for some of the lower tier characters to shine. Pixie and Dazzler get a lot of panel time, and it's pretty awesome. The sub plot about Emma facing Shaw is also quite good.

    Fast-paced plot - like we're getting snippets of a deeper plot that would be written elsewhere. Not very deep with the characters, not a lot of writing per page. I have a sneaking suspicion that Fraction isn't spending as much time on these scripts as he used to - he's carrying too many books to give them all their due. I can't complain about the story itself - it's got intrigue, mysteries that unfold, threats to the X-Men that don't look easy to solve, and some of Fraction's twisted sense of hum Fast-paced plot - like we're getting snippets of a deeper plot that would be written elsewhere.

However, the only character who seems to get any significant development time is Ms. Frost. The art actually complements the plot - sleek, clean lines, clear depictions of each character, not a lot of extraneous detail.

    A very entertaining if ultimately empty X-Men story, and a surprisingly soft dismount for Matt Fraction. It's strange that he just kind of stopped writing this series, without really tying anything up or going out with a bang. Granted there are always 35 X-Men titles running at any given time, so big flourishes could be tough on continuity, but it still feels a little weird to just see a great writer give a series the old Irish goodbye. This book is about on par with the rest of Fraction's run. H A very entertaining if ultimately empty X-Men story, and a surprisingly soft dismount for Matt Fraction.

This book is about on par with the rest of Fraction's run. His use of expositional dialogue boxes is downright impressive, since he manages to make them all funny and entertaining on their own, rather than just little Snapple facts about the characters. His dialogue is fantastic and the plot moves along at a nice clip, not ever feeling like it drags or stalls for time. However, this storyline is overall a little disappointing. The X-Men have all contracted a mutant-specific flu engineered by an evil madman bent on forcing the X-Men to sign over the rights to their powers to him for monetization purposes. There's something really modern and cool about that kind of "financial bad guy," but the story just doesn't quite pay off, mostly due to its abrupt ending. It's definitely the strongest of the story arcs in here, though. The others didn't quite work for me. In Chinatown, a new villain appears attempting to oust Wolverine as "Black Dragon," essentially the leader and warlord of the town. This guy is meant to be an analog for China itself, reading as heavily communist and possessing the power of multiple men, united in a single goal. Unfortunately, he's pretty easily taken down with almost no fanfare. Elsewhere, Emma Frost has taken Sebastian Shaw (with Kitty Pryde and Fantomex in tow) far away from Utopia, supposedly to kill him, ending his threat forever. He of course escapes and we just get a pretty uninteresting, straightforward fight that lasts a few issues. This one also resolves just a little too conveniently for my taste. So, Fraction's sheer ability to just write keeps this afloat, though there's really nothing here to go out of your way for. I wish he'd managed to work his full Fraction magic on the X-Men, but it just didn't really happen. Oh well.

    The Quarantine wasn't really the focus or the deadly threat. It was kind of a reason to give a motley crew of X-men, that are out of the quarantine, a time to shine. Angel, Pixie, Storm, Dazzler and Northstar take on 5 teenage x-fans that have used a drug to develop the powers of the 5 original x-men. All part of a plan by Lobe of the Sublime corporation. (oh yea, and a brief battle with the collective man) Meanwhile Emma Frost, Kitty Pryde and Fantomex are dealing with Sabastian Shaw.

    The next arc, and the first that Kieron Gillen officially co-wrote. Honestly, I thought I would think this arc was stupid.... and while it wasn't great, it actually wasn't bad either. The art is by Greg Land, but it's not terrible. The art on the previous arc was pretty terrible. The primary storyline, about a mutant plague, reads really dated now (it was obviously inspired by the bird flu/swine flu craze of the late 2000's) but was also typical Fraction, obvious allegories but not in a bad way.

The B-plot involving Emma Frost and Fantomex smuggling Sebastian Shaw was even more engaging. All in all, not bad, not bad. A bit anticlimactic for Fraction's swan song, but as more of the prologue to Gillen's it works well enough.

    This isn't as groundbreaking as Fraction's run on Hawkeye or as strange and funny as Sex Criminals but that's not what Marvel was paying him to do here. Instead, he delivers a smart and fun X-men story that features some lesser used characters like Angel, Pixie and Dazzler while still providing new insights into Wolverine for the few panels he has him. The B plot involving Emma Frost's unresolved issues with her former Hellfire Club colleague Sebastian Shaw mostly works but is never much more th This isn't as groundbreaking as Fraction's run on Hawkeye or as strange and funny as Sex Criminals but that's not what Marvel was paying him to do here.

    Continuing the great x-read of 2017/18... I really enjoyed this one. The flu/plague storyline was interesting and had a good wrap-up while the other sideplots retained their own strength. It was one of the better X-reads recently.

    A dull series of events involving a virus, and some of the lesser subplots of the Grant Morrison New X-Men run. It's not helped by Greg Land's porn tracing. I'm putting this in contention for worst X-Men arc of all-time. A dull series of events involving a virus, and some of the lesser subplots of the Grant Morrison New X-Men run.

Everything was going hunky-dory until an extremely virulent flu starts to sweep through the mutant community. This flu is designed to only target mutants, and in its worst stages it completely negates the powers of its host. Soon, all of Utopia is infected and Cyclops initiates a quarantine to prevent the disease from spreading. Wolverine recently took over as head of organized crime in San Francisco's Chinatown area. While Logan is sick and in quarantine, The Collective Man, a cold-war era supervillain from China starts to encroach on his territory. While the X-men are enfeebled and quarantined, Lobe, the CEO of the Sublime Corporation, uses an aerosal drug manufactured from information taken from the X-mens genetic material to temporarily empower a group of ordinary humans with the X-mens power. Lobe contacts the X-men, offering a cure to their flu epidemic in exchange for the legal authority to market their genetic profile in drug form. Will the X-men be able to fend off the Sublime Corporations hostile takeover of their very being? How can Wolverine defend the people of Chinatown while powerless and confined to Utopia? Great writing from Matt Fraction keeps you on the edge of your seat. Recommended. 4/5

    Let's have a short run (four issues) where there is no character development, no meaningful plot (at least not within the arc itself), and artwork that sterilizes the action. Let's put it all together into a graphic novel format. Because...actually, given that Marvel won't just bundle yearly issues into GNs, I'm not sure why this warranted publication unless it really touches upon things to come. Sure, Alison Blair was in it. That just means that I'm not going to hate it. I love me some Dazzler; Let's have a short run (four issues) where there is no character development, no meaningful plot (at least not within the arc itself), and artwork that sterilizes the action.

That just means that I'm not going to hate it. I love me some Dazzler; have since the mid '80s. But a heavy arc on Emma Frost (always bad news for me), no focus on Kitty Pryde (seriously? somebody thinks Frost is a better focus than Kitty?), and a weak plot about the dangers of corporate-worship, this felt like a waste of time for me. If I were still die-hard into all things X-Men (bone claw Wolverine lasting more than three issues caused me to stop buying monthlies and life did the rest), maybe this would have been better. For me. Maybe I would have liked it more. But if I don't like the art, chances are I'm going to nitpick everything about the story. A great story can save passable art. Great art cannot save a terrible story. In this case, just okay/over stylized art detracts from ho-hum writing.

    Matt Fraction ends his run on Uncanny X-men in a entertaining and interesting way. The plot had just enough science that seemed real to be interesting. While the plot is relatively straightforward, by the end, I really enjoyed the obligatory fight scenes. I also think Lobe is a pretty decent villain for the X-Men even if he is basically a mad scientist. There were also some clever lines of dialogue here and there as well. What keeps this from earning four stars is the art. There are way too many Matt Fraction ends his run on Uncanny X-men in a entertaining and interesting way.

What keeps this from earning four stars is the art. There are way too many panels where people are grinning like idiots because the artist does a lot of photo tracing and can't convey many different emotions. I think too many of Greg Land's female characters look the same too. They all seem to have the same hair and supermodel good looks which is fine, but could be much better. I don't despise Land's art (nor do I like it a lot either), but it seemed like the worst parts of it were very present in this story. Uncanny X-Men is consistently good and I've enjoyed each volume I've read from the middle of Fraction's run until now. I'm hoping a new writer (a new artist would be great too) will keep up the same level of fun.

    The artwork was beautiful! That alone is reason to check this book out. It looks just as amazing as Phoenix Endsong, which is really impressive. As for Quarantine, it was very entertaining! I loved how everyone was having trouble with their powers. It was a nice change of pace. The 'mutant flu' was power dampening, and then those not affected were having issues in other ways and it just really pulled me in.

I only wish it would have focused more on the effects of the mutant flu on Utopia. It always interests me when Cyclops is able to remove his shades, and Wolverine without his healing was entertaining too. So, it was a shame it didn't focus more on that stuff, but the plot was still very enjoyable! It had an interesting look into a bit of Emma Frost's past, with Sebastian Shaw, and I liked that this book focused on Fantomex and Kitty Pryde too. And there was a group of let's say copycat mutants (to avoid spoilers) that were really amusing. This book had a lot going on, but it all tied together well and I'd definitely read it again!

    Better than a lot of X-Collections I've seen, this one intertwines three good plotlines - an outbreak of "mutant flu" on Utopia, Emma Frost tying up the loose end that is the Black King, and a corporate-financed drug-enhanced team of "new X-Men" (who send up Grant Morrison's excesses with the team beautifully)- all while giving us the lush, oversexed illustrations of Greg Land on every page.

    Fraction is always good for an exciting read but that avant garde pop sensibility found here would be better off spent in one of his creator owned franchises.

    Matt Fraction’s Quarantine storyline was an interesting idea but it was a little lazy and haphazard. The Sublime Corp’s machinations were interesting but too simple. Lobe’s virus was too powerful then too easy to defeat. The “new” villains were lame and fame has been used like this before in X-books. The Emma/Shaw plotline was tedious, basically pointless, without resolution, and just pieced together so strangely. Greg Land draws so well and so terribly on the same page, its maddening.

    Very up and down, the storyline was just a little underdeveloped, the Frost/Shaw points were meandering and the amount of time developing the Sublime villains wasn't quite satisfactory. I enjoyed the idea of free market principles applying to mutation, and think more could have been made of this idea. Greg Land's art was also very inconsistent. He has his strong points with figures and draftsmanship, but the expressions seem to be off. Serviceable, not bad, but from a guy who really can draw (bir Very up and down, the storyline was just a little underdeveloped, the Frost/Shaw points were meandering and the amount of time developing the Sublime villains wasn't quite satisfactory.

    3 1/2 stars. Not a bad little story. The artwork was pretty excellent, and the story reminded me quite a bit of the X-Statix Omnibus I read a little while ago (namely the way it played with manufacturing superheroes and how marketing is involved), though not nearly as sharply as that series. I liked how the X-gene drinks looked like 5-hour energy capsules, though the overall story was a little bit underdeveloped to really ever take off.

    Two comic creators I now know to avoid: Greg Land and Matt Fraction. I can't overthink the plot too much without boring myself. The characters all have stupid smiles on their faces. The main villain is supposed to be very smart, but he makes some very stupid decisions; so he isn't written well. Every mutant character is introduced with an idiotic four word description. I have several more reasons for hating this, but why waste my time? Two comic creators I now know to avoid: Greg Land and Matt Fraction. I can't overthink the plot too much without boring myself.

    Not bad but could have been a lot better. I wonder if this is where the writers began to figure out that Scott Summers was a better character when he was weaker and with less control. The Emma Frost side story was irritating but in the end less objectionable than I expected. I wonder when Kitty manages to get back to normal - clearly not here. I didn't buy the basic premise though - x-men powers in an inhaler. And a super powerful mutant only virus with push button virulence. 3.5 of 5. Not bad but could have been a lot better.

    Again, like all of Fraction's run, it's very, very light. Land's art is slightly better than it was before.

    Thought it was pretty good. I liked the concept of rich people being able to get the powers of the X-Men, but not realising that it's not just the powers that make them X-Men.

    Mutants are sick, and a rich man is selling a drug that gives normal people mutant powers. This is a very clever story that goes to the heart of what it is like to be a mutant. The Emma Frost on going storyline is also brought to a satisfactory ending. A good read.
