I'm picking up last week's books tomorrow, so I'll try and find a suitably similar book in the back issue bins. This promises to be a nice drama filled week of butthurt and bitching though.

I'll have a look for an old Claremont X-Men book in the back-issues, if I find one, I'll do that, if not, it'll be 2000 AD.

yeah, it is spotty, but the tracking number will eventually tell me that it left the country and entered the port of entry and that is all I need. The rest is just a matter of customer service.

X-Men Forever Annual #1

Well, that was a much more pleasant experience then the last issue, so Fly Goes By.

The art is amazing. The romantic scenes are handled nicely, but once the Hand shows up and then even more so when the team shows up to save the day, the book becomes dynamic and the art compels the reader to keep reading, making the second half of the book fly by. However, while Takeda provides brilliant and beautiful art for close up or intimate scenes and great action sequences, the look is morphed and awkward when a panel pans out.

The gist of the plot is funny things are happening and Fury hires Logan and Jean to go do reconnaissance somewhere in the South Pacific. Unfortunately, a bunch of security devices seem to be playing with the psychic's powers, or is it something more sinister.

The writing is better this time around, even if there are groan inducing lines like "We've no one to save but ourselves." Other than a few clunky lines like that, it doesn't seem to be the relentless cheese fest of the last issue I read for the RG a while back.

[spoiler]My only real gripe with the book is that there is not much explanation given for the brainwashing done to Logan, much less how Jean breaks free of it. However, when a device is that weakly employed the stupid love will save us all way out of it is much more believable, if not any less exasperated sigh worthy.[/spoiler]

This was not a great comic, but it was not a horrible cheese filled nostalgia fest either, it felt fresh and new. It is easy to see why someone might be enamored with a book with this much charm. That being said, it still really isn't my thing.

Story 7
Art 8
Overall 7.5
