Wolverine and the X-Men, Volume 1

Written by: Jason Aaron

First line: I love it.

Why you should read this book: Since I've never followed Marvel, I have only the vaguest idea of why Wolverine is trying to open a new school for mutants, but it seems natural that when he does, the New York Department of Education, the Hellfire Club, and the very ground on which the school is built are determined to shut the operation down. Much smashing, teen angst, and untapped potential is in evidence as the first day of school sees intensive battle and subsequent days suggest that the school is still a powder keg. A fun volume of modern mutants and the struggles of growing up with explosive power.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You remember when Wolverine was cool.
