A triple shot of reviews of Sean McKeever comics are in this week's Spinrack: Retro Reviews; and yes, they all happen to be Tsunami titles. Just like the last edition of The Spinrack: Retro Reviews.
Sean McKeever and Matthew Clark tell the tale of San, an Attilan boy who feels that he is destined for greatness. After being exposed to Terrigen mists though, his outlook on his future is uncertain. McKeever's writing is nice. It's almost great, but what he wrote is still entertaining to read. Clark does a good job with the art, but it's never striking. Looking at the cover art and the interior art, I wonder how J.H. WIlliams III's art would've meshed with the writing.

There are suspicions that DermaFree, a corporation that specializes in dermatological treatment, is using mutants as guinea pigs for their experiments. Charles Xavier sends Mystique and Shortpack to investigate DermaFree. Sean McKeever does a nice job with the writing. Though the plot isn't my cup of tea, his handling of Mystique is great. The art team of Manuel Garcia, Raul Fernandez and Matt Milla did a solid job. Garcia's pencils and Fernandez's inks produce a style that reminds me of Yanick Paquette's work, while maintaining its own identity.

Juston's father and brother are on an overnight trip to Chicago. Meanwhile, a strange machine continues to rebuild itself. Sean McKeever's writing is nice, but it falls flat in places. His handling of Juston and Jessie's friendship is great and is definitely the highlight of the comic. UDON Studios' art is nothing mind blowing. Though there are some nice touches, there's nothing eye catching about it.
