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!

Not going to lie, I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as I did Fantastic Four: Season One. Maybe it's because I'm far more familiar with the origin story of the X-Men than I am with the Fantastic Four, but some of the updates that were made to the main cast of characters in this volume just don't seem to mesh well in my mind with what has come before or since for them. Alas, not a great addition to the Season One books, as far as I'm concerned.
