A decent story about Emma Frost's backstory, set when she's in high school and coping with her mutation and terrible family. The covers are very over the top (even for Emma Frost), and are nothing like the rest of the art. ( )

This is the story of Emma Frost - Who apparently was an enemy of the X-Men. She is part of a family dynasty with a controlling father who only sees his children as potential heirs - this sets each sibling against each other - Its a toxic environment for a person who justs wants to be a teacher.

The graphic novel itself is good - The characters are interesting - the art is a little over done, but that is part of being a graphic novel about an x-man enemy. I like that Emma grows as a person, finally running away at the end of book one. She also doesn't take a moral high-ground with her powers. She has them, she uses them. Its that simple. ( )
