House of M Reviews

  • Jeff

    This is one of the better Marvel crossover event core books. First, it was written by Brian Michael Bendis, who has a knack for this sort of thing. It covers a lot of ground, yet it’s accessible, interesting, entertaining and most importantly it’s a coherent rendering of the main event unlike other cross over event books like Fear Itself or Inhumanity, which leave you bewildered and angry. You could read this and be satisfied that you’ve got the gist of the story or if you’re interested [...]

    A strong story that Marvel still feels its repercussions!This TPB edition collects “House of M” #1-8 plus “The Pulse: House of M Special Edition” newspaper.Creative Team:Writer: Brian Michael BendisIllustrator: Olivier CoipelCOMMUNICATIONS PROBLEMSBefore getting deep into the review of House of M story, I want to comment about the communication problems between the creative team and the guys whom did the covers for each single issue of the event.I am telling this, since while the variant [...]

    I originally intended to review all eight issues individually but due to some unforeseen time restraints IRL, I decided to simply post a single official review for its overall collection instead. And let me tell you something: writer Brian Michael Endis and artist Oliver Coipel have composed a formidable and pristine piece of comic book storytelling in the unbelievably catastrophic major event of House of M which had been dubbed ominously as "M-Day." And for a rather distressing reason at that.M [...]

    So I've never been a consistent comic reader and the unfortunate result is things can wildly change from one iteration to another. I saw it in Marvel Civil War when Nitro blew up Wolverine right down to his adamantium skeleton and two seconds later he was fully flesh and blood again. Another example happened here in House of M. I grew up remembering Scarlet Witch like thisyou know glowing hands, red lingerie, and not that big of a deal, but now she does things like this umm well wow. Just wow. [...]

  • Anne

    I've wanted to read this for a while now, because there have been so many references to this in other comics that I've read lately. It's nice to finally understand what everyone is talking about.It was good in a freaky how-are-they-going-to-fix-this-mess kind of way.

  • Sam Quixote

    The Scarlet Witch has gone crazy after killing some of her fellow Avengers leaving the hero team along with the X-Men pondering what to do with her – do they kill her for what’s she done or because her powers have become unstable? Before they have a chance to decide anything she uses everything she has to change the world into a mutant utopia where humans are hounded and giving each mutant their heart’s desire. Brian Michael Bendis writes a fascinating event book the equivalent of DC’s [...]

  • Jonathan Terrington

    I have been making it a priority of mine this year to catch up on comic arcs that I had heard plenty about. And yes, that basically means I have discovered the fun of interlibrary loans. Following the events I read about in Avengers Disassembled, you end up with many of the Avengers and X-Men deciding whether or not they should kill Scarlet Witch. This is the lead in to House of M, a reality shaking comic book arc like few other modern stories.A white light hits the combined Avengers and X-Men a [...]

  • Kyle

    This is definitely one of my favourite collections from the Marvel Universe. It continues with the events which were started in the "Disassembled" stories, that is to stay, House of M deals mainly with the fallout of Scarlett Witch's emotional/mental breakdown that ended with the deaths of several Avengers. Not sure how to imprison a reality-bending, unpredictable mutant, the X-men and Avengers must come together to make a final decision on how to handle Scarlet Witch. Fearing that they will opt [...]

  • J

    I guess I would have enjoyed this more if I had read the events prior to this, but I didn't. So.The artwork was great, and the dialogue was good too. There were a lot of likable characters (obviously). I just wasn't very entertained by this like I thought I would be. The plot was very original, but something about this just didn't grab me. I guess because it was so brief and everything happened so quickly. But to be fair, I usually don't like these big Marvel events that much anyway, so maybe I [...]

  • Aaron

    I read House of M a million years ago back when it first came out, and remember feeling like I enjoyed it but didn't see what all the fuss was about. At the time, I wasn't overly familiar with what was going on with New Avengers or the X-Men, which seems like it spelled disaster for my ability to truly connect with the story. Now, years later and with a much greater knowledge of the Marvel Universe around this time, this book reads as INCREDIBLE. It is such a huge, brimming blast. It's no wonder [...]

  • Gavin

    I'm assuming this picks up not long after Avengers:Disassembled, and carries on with the decimation of the OTHER major group in the Marvel Universe: The X-Men/Mutants as a whole. Everyone knows the lines "No More Mutants".I'm glad I finally got to read this, it reads like a movie just waiting to be madeScarlet Witch remakes reality in such a way that many people are given what they desire, or are just made to forget all that came before. However, the one man who remembers the 'real' world? Wolve [...]

  • Mike

    Great re-imagining of the Marvel universe upside-down. When I originally read this, I didn't realize it would spawn so many side-stories. Not sure if this is Marvel just cashing in on another Bendis-fest, or if there's really a rich set of ideas worth exploring here. I'd like to think the latter, but the way that the tie-ins seem to have spiked so fast and died off not long thereafter, it seems like the former. Nothing against Bendis, just frustrated that Bendis gives these guys so many grand sl [...]

  • Anna Banana

    Noooo! My favorite character! Gah, what the heck Marvel :(

  • Lynn Rainbow

    omg I need to know what happens next NOW!!!

  • Martin

    House of M finally gets the deluxe hardcover treatment! It contains the 8-issue mini-series and a LOT of bonus features (about 1/3 of the book!), such as variant covers, interviews, penciled pages, the script to issue 1, as well as "The Secrets Of The House Of M", which helps understand the House Of M universe a lot better, by giving the readers the new reality's status quo, as well as how the characters have all been affected by the change. The mini itself is well done: the dialogue and art are [...]

  • Marianna Neal

    The story in House of M is so much fun to read, and it's also a pretty big mindfuck because the Scarlet Witch is out of control. It throws you right into action, and it never stops. I have to say, since I've only started reading X-Men recently (and my only knowledge of the Avengers is through movies/) I was a little bit confused at first, since House of M has a ton of characters I'm not super familiar with. However, I figured it out eventually, and now I HAVE to know what happens next! The art i [...]

  • James DeSantis

    I could have sworn I read House of M but I guess not. I read Avengers Dissembled and then skipped over house of M and just read some individual x-men type titles. So we all know what comes from House of M. "No More Mutants" the famous words utter by Scarlet witch, the power force of the Marvel Universe, and like The Flash, can alter and fuck up the entire universe. She can alter reality. That's what House of M is actually about. Scarlet Witch is going nuts, like not able to control her OWN reali [...]

  • Taha

    -House of M serisi normalde 6 ciltlik bir çizgi roman; ancak diğer yan hikayeleriyle birlikte 53 cilte kadar çıkıyor uzunluğu. En başta niyetim tüm 53 cildi okumaktı; ama serinin temeline çok uzaktan temas eden birkaç cildi listemden çıkarmam gerekti. Çünkü tüm o farklı hikayeler ve karakterler (özellşikle de daha önce hiç duymamışsanız bu karakterleri) bir süre sonra ana konudan kopmanıza, kafanızın karışmasına ve seriden soğumanıza neden olabiliyor diye düş [...]

  • Nikki

    House of M actually seems a bit old hat, coming to it after I've already read other crossover events and the aftermath of House of M, The Children's Crusade. I'm trying to fit it together with some of the other comics I've read, and I'm a little unsure -- Wanda's children, how do they end up being Billy and Tommy from Young Avengers? When does that happen? That's not really explained to my satisfaction anywhere in the story.Did like the cast here, though it feels a little crowded. Spider-man get [...]

  • Jose Monarrez

    Es una historia Solida y deja muchísimos cambios en el Universo de Marvel. lo mejor de todo es que sientes que el universo cambia y que realmente no es tan importante la acción de los super heroes, y notas que son parte integral del mundo vaya los vuelve mas humanos se podría decir.Esa es una caracteristica que se ve en la forma de escribir del Marvel moderno, pero que en este se acentúa ya que el cambio cataclismico del mundo marvel sucede aun cuando elos no lo deseen muy recomendable para [...]

  • Jesse A

    Feels like a very necessary Marvel universe book. Very cool for my first x-men book.

  • Rahmi

    The first comic book that I've read. Well yes it was kind of weird but still, I enjoyed it and quite liked it.

  • Victor Casas

    No esta para leerse todo de corrido pero es MUY bueno.

  •  Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    This graphic novel is about the day that Wanda Maximoff, The Scarlet Witch, changed mutantkind forever. It happens after a sequence of upsetting events break her fragile mind, and put others at risk due to her incredibly powerful, world-shaping powers.The X-Men and Avengers have to decide what to do about Wanda. With her mental breakdown and her intact powers, surely she will continue to pose too much of a danger to others around her. Her brother, Quicksilver, desperate to save his sister, convi [...]

  • Paul

    Fun yet frustrating, and in turns exciting and dull.Brian Michael Bendis has a gift for snappy scenes with characters quipping back and forth to one another, but this facility with fun conversation scenes (aided by Oliver Coipel's dynamic and sharp artwork) distracts the reader from his persistent and fundamental problems with plotting and pacing. In his previous work on books like Powers and Daredevil, Bendis was able to keep up the reader's interest by following the journey of one or two prota [...]

  • Michael

    Es bedurfte zweier Anläufe, bis ich richtig in die Handlung einsteigen und das Buch durchlesen konnte. In der zweiten Hälfte ist mir schließlich klar geworden, was in House of M geschieht, aber bis dahin war Geduld gefordert. Bendis hat hier eine alternative "Wirklichkeit" geschaffen, deren Konsequenzen ((view spoiler)[fast alle Mutanten wurden ihrer Kräfte beraubt (hide spoiler)]) für die Zukunft unabsehbar sind. Bendis selbst hat übrigens gesagt, dass dieser Erzählstrang die "tatsächli [...]

  • Megan

    At the urging of my fiance, I finally read House of M and I'm so upset that I didn't do it sooner. Superbly written, House of M chronicles the aftermath of the deaths of the Avengers at the hands of Scarlet Witch. At this point, Wanda Maximoff is so distraught from what she has done that she is losing her grip on reality and control of her reality-altering powers. When the New Avengers, X-Men and various friends meet to decide Scarlet Witch's fate, her brother, Quicksilver, decides to take matte [...]

    "No more mutants.I am not going to lie and tell you I've read many comic books.I haven't.I won't lie to you and tell you I am expert in these.I am not definitely.But as a fan, I have roamed the internet and tried to accumulate all the knowledge I can find about characters and stories I am intrigued in over the years.I also have a Marvel Encyclopedia.Both of those facts stated above made me come across that important event known as M-Day, because from what I've read it is one very important and a [...]

  • Carla

    One of my favourite storylines from the X-verse. It can be hard to blend so many characters to make a unified team especially with so much going on but this graphic novel did it excellently. I finally was able to see why the Scarlett Witch is considered so badass and I found Quicksilver’s storyline very compelling. I liked that there was an argument made that perhaps that the altered reality was how things actually should have been. I can’t say I see the reasoning behind trying to reverse wh [...]

  • Kindle Ninja

    Brian Michael Bendis is a master storyteller, especially involving a massive mutant ensemble. In House of M, powerful mutants become so threatened and so vulnerable and so afraid. Everyone is conflicted and unsure of what they want to do. It becomes extremely emotional for many of the characters because the decision to kill (or not to kill) one of their own rests on their shoulder.This story affects the entire Marvel universe and I find that very clever. It's an intense and exhilarating read.
