    Generation Hope #1 Review


    Kieron Gillen & Salvador Espin kick off the newest X-book. Hope and her ragtag group of new mutants along with their babysitter Rogue travel to Tokyo to meet up with Cyclops & Wolverine. One of my favourite parts of this issue is how every two pages or so the narration changes. I didn't think I'd like this at first, but ended up loving it. It gave a little more insight in how each character thinks and how they act. I also liked how their interactions were realistic and they aren't fully used to each other yet. I was really into how everybody got to get into the action. On the downside was how cartoony the art was and how we don't know the extent of everybody's powers yet. A really good start to this series. 4/5
