New X-Men: Academy X 1-46 NOTE: This is not Grant Morrison's "New X-Men" series. This series was titled New X-Men: Academy X for issues #1-19, and simply New X-Men from issue #20 onward, but the files are all labeled with the New X-Men: Academy X title to avoid ambiguity. This series is a continuation fo the New Mutants storyline.
This torrent includes all 46 issues of the run.
New X-Men: Academy X was launched during the X-Men ReLoad event. It resumes directly where the most recent New Mutants series ended, with the same writers, artists, and cast of characters. The Academy X subtitle was dropped from the title when the new creative team of Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost took over the series with issue #20.
Whereas the other X-Men comics mostly deal with established adult mutants, this series concentrates on the lives of young students residing at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning as they learn to control their powers and, as of late, to survive the backlash against mutants that befell them as part of House of M.
After the 2007 crossover X-Men: Messiah Complex, the New X-Men title was canceled. It was replaced by Young X-Men in April, 2008, written by Marc Guggenheim and featuring a small squad of the X-Men students, some from Kyle and Yost's run, and some new faces.
