Totally into it. There were a couple of names I had to look up, but one hand on the book and one hand on wikipedia is how we drive these days, so that's fine.
Overall it's more about what happens before and after than it is about a clash between good and evil, and disparate forces uniting against common enemies.
I guess the only ding is that this is a huge story with hundreds of threads and you only get so much time with each one. Like, Colossus? He only appears in 3 panels and it's this sweeping, heartbreaking thing in some ways. Plenty of stuff to unpack for days afterward here.
I'm a little confused about what comes next in the time line. Decimation? Son of M? Something else? Here wikipedia is failing me.
