Book Review: Avengers vs. X-men: It's Coming by Allan Heinberg (Author), Jason Aaron (Author), Brian Michael Bendis (Author), Jeph Loeb (Author), Jim Cheung (Illustrator), Adam Kubert (Illustrator), Olivier Coipel (Illustrator), Ed McGuinness (Illustrator)

Essentially, this is a mismatched collection of teaser titles that came just before the Avengers vs. X-Men got started properly. All of them are parts of larger arcs that eventually fed into the whole huge Avengers vs. X-Men battle. Individually, none of them stand up well on its own. Few, in fact, make any sense in isolation.

If you can get hold of it at the library, it's worth looking at it to reread the end of the House of M storyline (which I'm kind of wanting to reread now). I vaguely remembered it, but I did appreciate the refresher. Otherwise, It's Coming is only worth it for the completist, and that only so this hypothetical individual can jot down the arc-titles of all the other books in order to go find out where those are collected in their entirety, always assuming they are collected in full somewhere.
