CBR Review: Uncanny X-Men #1

I recently reviewed Uncanny X-Men #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The schism has occurred and the new era of Uncanny X-Men begins two weeks after Marvel's long-running title saw the previous volume's final issue ship. Not so much a stunt to gain new readers (though that no doubt plays a part), the relaunch of Uncanny X-Men places it on equal footing with the newly launched Wolverine and the X-Men, showing that each group is acting parallel to one another, neither one 'better,' just different. Despite the harshness of the Schism title, the aftermath is one of mutual respect and coexistence, something this first issue makes quite clear as it lays out the new status quo and direction of the series. It's an entertaining first issue that draws upon past Uncanny X-Men stories while maintaining a new reader-friendly tone."
