The Spinrack: Retro Reviews #7

Written by GLX on Wednesday, November 18 2009 and posted in Reviews
GLX reviews a trio of Fabian Nicieza comics.



Thunderbolts #43(2000)

Black Widow teams up with the Thunderbolts in this comic by Fabian Nicieza and Mark Bagley. The dialogue sounds authentic but it's not engaging. The story is just like the dialogue. There's nothing odd about the story but there's nothing exciting about it. Bagley's art is easily the best part of this comic. It's crisp and effective at teling the story.

X-Men #30(1994)

In this issue, Jean Grey and Scott Summers get married. Fabian Nicieza's writing is okay. Nothing really works, despite the events in the comic. Andy Kubert manages to turn in some nice pencils, but it isn't enough to make this issue great.

5.4* out of 10*

X-Men #31(1994)

Fabian Nicieza and Andy Kubert tell a tale that revolves around Matta and Kwannon, ex lovers that were on two sides of opposing assassin groups. Their interactions, past and present, end up affecting Psylocke's life. The writing wasn't anything to go crazy over, but I was entertained by it. The real star of this issue is Kubert. All of the characters look sharp and the layouts are solid. Not sure if I'm up for another issue, but I wouldn't be surprised if I eventually checked it out.
