It's not worth it - ferroboy
I went into the limited series with the idea that it was going somewhere, that there'd be a payoff that would move Decimation forward. Instead, we get butterflies. The series was only mediocre and that's not usually something to keep me reading, unless I anticipate a good resolution.
Throughout the series, I felt that a majority of the 198 (that who weren't X-Men) were written out-of-character, though I admit that Kitty Pryde and Valerie Cooper were perfect. Maybe "out-of-character" is less valid than "one-dimensional". Many of the characters just stood around and looked angry - supposing you could even tell who they were. Caliban started out looking like Wendigo - tall, furry, large ears. Then his ears got shorter but he was still furry. By the end of the series he more-or-less looked like Caliban. It seems obvious Jim Muniz didn't really know who he was drawing but was clued in somewhere along the line.
The problem, though, was the end. Despite the events of the book, we have a somewhat cheery ending and a ridiculous transformation on the part of Mr. M. This series could have left us with a direction in which the mutant survivors were going, even if it was to a much darker place. Instead, we have two characters cheering and smiling on the final page.
I would recommend not reading this.
