The Spinrack: Retro Reviews #4

Written by GLX on Wednesday, October 21 2009 and posted in Reviews
GLX reviews some old comics including Exiles #1.



Exiles #1(2001)

A group of mutants of mutants, from different realities, by the Timebroker to repair breaks in time. Judd Winick's writing is entertaining, though not mind blowing. Mike McKone's art is on the same level of quality as Winick's writing.

7.5* out of 10*

Generation X #11(1996)

Scott Lobdell, Todd Dezago and Val Semekis are behind this tale that....well..is mostly focused on a conflict between Omega Red and Chamber. The writing comes off a bit weak. All of the captions, thought balloons, and dialogue just fall flat. Semekis' pencils are meh.

5* out of 10*

Web of Spiderman #90(1992)

Howard Mackie and Alex Saviuk's tale involves Max Shiffman, Spiderman's former manager during his wrestling days. He meets up with Spiderman again, but there is something sinister behind this reunion. The writing is trippy and appropriately so. It's standard fare, but it leads to some interesting art bits. Saviuk's work is effective, but nothing jaw dropping.

6.1* out of 10*
