The Spinrack: Retro Reviews #3

Written by GLX on Monday, October 19 2009 and posted in Reviews
GLX reviews a trio of Scott Lobdell comics.




Generation X #10(1995)

During Mondo's orientation party, M finds Banshee unconscious. Scott Lobdell and Tom Grummett do an okay job with this comic. Nothing jumps out and the comic justs settles with mediocrity.

5.3* out of 10*

Uncanny X-Men #319(1994)

This comic by Scott Lobdell and Steve Epting focuses on three different situations that occur within the same night. Psylocke and Archangel have a night out, Iceman and Rogue have dinner with Iceman's parents and Professor X gets a visit from a long lost relative. The writing is typical Lobdell. It just goes from beginning to end, without evoking an emotional response. Epting's art is alright, though his opening 2 page spread is the highlight of the comic.

5.4* out of 10*

Uncanny X-Men #390(2001)

In this issue, one X-Man sacrifices their life to deliver the cure for the Legacy virus. Scott Lobdell does a nice job, on the writing end. Sure, it features some average dialogue, but there's something powerful about the death. On the art end, Salvador Larroca does a solid job, on the pencils. Oh, and Hi-Fi Design delivers some great color work.

7.6* out of 10*
