    Changes the course of mutant life

    House of M was a masterpiece that changed the Marvel Universe forever. This book was both well written and well drawn. It is a must read for any current X-men fan/reader. If you read X-Men when you were younger, and started again after the events of this book, as I did, this book will fill in many gaps for you and answer many questions. The events of House of M change the paths of several specific mutants, and also changes the Mutant race as a whole. These changes ti the mutant race are never (at least as of 2011) undone and continue to shape the both the X-Men's lives and the Mutant race. A note on the issues included. House of M #1-8 is the story part of the book. Once those are done, the story is effectively finished. Do not expect the other issues and bonus content included to be "story" issues. Also, while Barnes & Noble says this includes "House of M #1-8 and Pulse House of M Special Edition Newspaper" it also includes "Secrets of the House of M" and "House of M #1: Director's Cut". Both the "Pulse" and "Secrets" issues are excellent bonus content, but don't expect them to be regular comic issues. "Secrets" includes a summary of how the events in this book came to be, along with bios for all of the mutant and superhuman characters involved in House of M. These can be either interesting or boring depending on your interest level and point of view. For example, I love stories with Apocalypse. Though he is not in issues #1-8 (neither shown or mentioned) there is a bio for him, which details what his role was in the House of M events. This is the case for many mutants and superheroes. "Pulse" is basically 12 pages of newspaper type articles and headlines relating to the House of M events and stories. Like "Secrets" this gives the reader more insight into the events of House of M which were not shown in the eight main issues. "House of M #1: Director's Cut" gives you the script written out for House of M #1 along with several small sketches of scenes from that issue. It also includes an interview about House of M with Brian Bendis (the writer) and variant covers and full size sketches from House of M #1. I would recommend this to any X-Men lover or anyone interested in mutants in the marvel universe. This book will answer many questions if you are a current X-Men reader and missed this mini-series. Expect 8 issues of stories along with pages upon pages of extras and bonus content.

    Mutants > Humans

    The Scarlet Witch creates an alternate world where Mutants are dominate and Humans are the minority. This was an awesome read. It was enjoyable to see mutants take place of other heroes in Wanda's alternate reality. An interesting look to what Magneto may have done if he had the chance to. The dialogue is spot on and too many crazy role reversals make this one a page turner.

    Favorite Part: Wolverine is Nick Fury.

    Great read

    I just started picking up comics again and had heard about this story for years. I had read a bunch of x-men stories based on the fallout of this story (no more mutants), but never read the story that started it all. I finally bit the bullet and decided to dive in. For anyone who is skeptical of big crossovers, this is a great read.

    Another huge plus is Coipel's art. Wow.

    Excellent

    I enjoyed this book, especially where it tells the backstory of the main characters and how they became the characters they are. A must-read.

    What-If?

    You know those one-shots that Marvel puts out called "What-if..." Well this is like a "What if" but on a much bigger scale. It's smart though I like the idea of a world where mutants are the majority and humans are almost an endangered species.

    Interesting, but leaves you wanting for more.

    I have heard about this story for some time and with the new AvX comics coming out I went back and read this to get me up to speed. It is a good story and art is well done but you can tell that this is a piece of a larger story and will leave you wanting more.

    Just not very good

    Nothing really happens for most of this book. Most of the characters are nonessential. Scarlet Witch is so out of character, it hurts. The one substantive thing - "No more mutants" - has since been revoked, and with good reason, because it was a stupid idea. This stupid idea is also this book's only reason to exist - it's an editorial mandate disguised as an epic. At least Civil War had things going on, even if it was terminally stupid. House of M doesn't even have that.
