It was the best X-Men run ever. It was pretty much flawless, imo.

Let me ask you something, I've showed interest in Sandman for a very long time but just as of now I heard of this AXM.  Im considering picking this up as opposed to the first Absolute Sandman ( 1-20 ) which should I get?  Sandy or the Xmen

Not the best or my favorite but pretty good.

It was good, each character had a distinctive voice. You could take a line from anywhere in the comic and ask someone who said it and they would guess correctly. Add in that you also got some interesting stories and you have found something that is quite rare to come across in X comics these days.

It was good, not fantastic.     Sandman has much better story telling, but AXM has better artwork.

@daak1212: If you're getting trades, then start with Gifted.  It's a good series (not great), but the Giant Sized issue is a stinker.
