CBR Review: X-Men: Prelude to Schism #1

I recnetly reviewed X-Men: Prelude to Schism #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Lead-in mini-series to events are always dicey, especially when they’re not done by the creative team handling the event book. There’s no telling how much the prologue book actually relates to the main book, how many details will actually connect, and if there’s really any point in picking it up until the event begins. It was with that mindset that I approached the first issue of X-Men: Prelude to Schism, where Paul Jenkins begins a four-issue mini that will, presumably, set-up the Jason Aaron-written X-Men event. And Jenkins has a good approach in this first issue, focusing on the emotional impact of what’s coming and the connections between characters instead of the plot itself."
