Dear Fake X-Men Letter Page,

Lilandra walks again. Sprite phases again. Scott Summers is a brooding
loner again. It is uncanny (pardons begged for) how much story each page
contains -- at least for an old obsessive Byrne X-Men fan. I was afraid that
one page a day would feel too close to nothing a day. Instead, living with
page 1 alone for so long proves how much one-page a day feels like much
more than that.

Make Mine X-Men Fan-fic!
Yrs. etc.

Wow, these pages are SO good! The "Wolverine tripping" sequence is
fantastic, as is Colossus defending Kitty, Nightcrawler unintentionally scaring
her, etc. This is a blast.

So pleased your internet connection is back. I wish all comics were still made this way: well drawn, written and edited by one person with a singular vision and lots of talent.

It hit me today that Kurt's face in the falling sequence looks (to my eye) more
like Cockrum's original design than the one I remember from JB's run.

...which (to me) is a very cool thing.

I was looking at Dave’s work quite a bit on this “issue”.

Suddenly the outage seems like a benefit, with a nice flow of pages to read in a row. If this was available as a regular-sized issue in one go, I would burn through it straightaway. 

Remember when you used to come back with a pile of comics from the LCS and there'd always been one obvious candidate to be the one you consumed immediately? This would be that comic.

Shame we lost the what's adamantium? line, but it all reads so smoothly. So glad we'll be getting to read more regularly.

Wow! Page 2 in particular!

We're not worthy.

Yes, they sound like themselves again to me too.

Very, very nice. Even having seen some of these pages before, we instantly realise there is more going on down the road than we thought.
Entity. Oooohhhhh

Ooohhhhhh indeed!

As I mention before, in ELSEWHEN I am playing much the same game that I played in STAR TREK NEW VISIONS, setting my tales in "the Past", but allowing myself access to elements that were not known the first time around.

Right from the start, this bit of Fan-Fic does something vitally professional: it respects the principle that every issue is somebody's first. I was looking at the pages thus far as if I had no clue about any of these characters, yet with a minimum of exposition quite a bit of grounding information is offered immediately.

I was a reader of this vintage of the X-MEN -- but if JB happens to draw in elements from after my time (circa 1981), because of this first-issue principle, I've no worries I'll be lost. Nice!
