Certainly not as miserable as a lot of us were trying to read his X-Men comics, that's for sure. 

I'm curious if anyone else is reading the X-Men titles now, and if so, what their opinions are on the current books.

Left to his own devices away from a franchise, Nicieza is a good writer. I enjoyed his New Warriors and Nomad runs.

We all have different jumping off points in a long running series like the X-Men but it's the same story...the shock of the realization that you don't like this anymore...the disbelief and the resisting to letting go...Mine was the Inferno storyline...My 15 year old self would think. What's wrong with ME ? i don't like it so much as I used to be. This used to be my favourite thing in the world and now it's such a chore going through 22 pages...Looking for a fault in myself. It took some months to realize the wrong thing was not with me but with the book itself...

Agreed, he's done some good stuff, just thought he was a bad fit on X-Men in my opinion. I liked New Warriors and his run on Thunderbolts.

My interest in X-Men has waxed and waned many times over the years. My only real "jumping off" point was during Brian Bendis's run. Even at that, there was enough other stuff going on that I was able to find a couple books to follow, while ignoring what was going on in the core books.
