This gargantuan volume of the X-men is basically a reintroduction to most of this long running series Mythos.
Written by Jonathan Hickman, and beautifully illustrated Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva, and it follows the mutants in various times of their history, the present day is marked by the founding of the mutant island Krakoa, and consequently we see 10 years in the past, when Professor X meets Moira, 100 years in the future, and the machine-mutant conflict, and finally 1000 years in the future, with a highly evolve mutant society.
I won’t spoil any more than that, the story jump from one period to the next, and it slowly untangles the events that became the result of the mutants society evolution, this story also works as the introduction of the new X-men titles and the storyline Dawn of X.
A great story, sometimes a bit difficult to follow if you are not that familiar with the X-men, but I assure you you’ll end up wanting more of the Children of the Atom
Now ,off I go, to look for my next adventure.
