I saw this TPB release on ComiXology today:

New Mutants by Abnett & Lanning: The Complete Collection Vol. 1
Collects New Mutants (2009) #25-37, Journey Into Mystery (2011) #632.

Their powers are in their DNA so who better to write them than Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning! The New Mutants have a new agenda. Cyclops is sick of unfinished business coming back to haunt the X-Men, so hes tasking the New Mutants to finish it. Their first mission: Find Nate X-Man Grey! But when Schism tears apart mutantkind, Cannonball, Sunspot, Magma, Cypher, Warlock, Karma and Dani Moonstar must all make life-defining choices. Who stays, and who leaves? Meanwhile, Blink is back, and mayhem and destruction follow wherever she goes! As Dani seeks to bring Blink out of exile, Mephisto lurks in the background and with her soul in the balance, will Amara go on a date with the devil?

------------

I can't remember if I knew they wrote this back in the day or if I even read it.  I looked it up on Marvel Unlimited and of course they have all the issues in the Trade and then some so I added them to my list.

Does anyone remember this?  Was it any good?  I have higher hopes since they both wrote it.

Sorry, I can't remember it, but like you said, if they both wrote it there is a higher chance it will be good
 ;D

If I remember this, this is the run that the original team took over for the other Young Mutants that DnA was writing at the time; the team with Rockslide? That Young Mutants/New Mutants run of theirs was very good. I just...can't remember this stuff though!!

I just want to know why Master Splinter (lower right) is on the team
 :D :D :D

Also, I don't think you can lose with this Jeff. Not hat I remember anything whatsoever about it, but it does appear to have Warlock (the mutant one) in it and I don't remember having a bad time when I read stories featuring him
 :)
