April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

27. X-Men: Endangered Species by Mike Carey, et al.



Title: X-Men: Endangered Species
Series: X-Men
Authors: Mike Carey, et al.
Copyright: 2008
Pages: 192
Publisher: Marvel

Format: Hardcover
Rating: 4/5 stars
Finished: 4-5-09

After the events of House of M, there are less than 200 mutants alive in the world, and they are looking at the extinction of their species. The X-Man Beast decides to take it upon himself to find a cure for this problem, crossing boundaries he never thought he'd cross to find that cure.

It is an interesting premise; what lengths would you go to ensure the survival of your species? I think the X-Men comics have been wallowing for some time now, not knowing what direction to go in, but I think the stories and ideas that can come out of this graphic novel are a good starting point.
