I'm reading, but I'm definitely not enjoying the new X-Men status quo. Having every issue leading into an issue from another ongoing series is going to make reading trades a nightmare.

Something important happens in X-Force #1, but if you go from X-Men #1 to X-Men #2 it gets spoiled in the opening page. Want to go straight to Excalibur? Spoiled there, too, except this time you don't get a heads-up as to which issue the important thing occurred in.

Add in the overuse of text pieces explaining things (and taking up less than half a page overall to do so), many characters being unused or ignored completely, several characters being written differently...

I finally reached X-Men #2, and it was awful. The characters were all acting weirdly, the emphasis was ALL OVER the place in the dialogue, and the brand new status quo set up in House of X/Powers of X was changed.

On to Marauders #2, I guess, the reading order says that is next...

Good point. Since I was following the reading order (mostly) I hadn't noticed.
I haven't formed an opinion on the stories/plot/writing yet.

Only reading X-Men can't be bother with the rest but think I will soon give up its lovely to look at but the writing is unstable with the characters I've known for too many decades
