Even though my look-backs at the X-Men books weren't in depth I haven't got the time or patience to post as much as I did so now it will just be a few lines and few key pics of each issue.
X-Men 71 - Kelly & Pacheco
Kelly immediately shows that he's an improvement over previous writers and we get some good characterisation and some good drama.
Marrow continues to play the 'hard-woman' and feels left out when the crew decide to go for a trip into town. Maggot does have some strange dialogue but that could just be because I'm not all that familiar with South African lingo but on the whole this is a much improved book.
Uncanny X-Men 351 - Seagle & Benes
This issue focuses on a day in the life of Celia Reyes. It features some pretty rubbish dialogue but then I'm no Seagle fan. She bounces around with Storm...
...and then has an encounter with DD before predictably coming back to the X-Men after she realises that is now her place. It's a bit heavy handed and also a bit defeatist.
Uncanny X-Men 352 - Seagle & Various
The cover proclaims the most artists ever on one comic. There are 5.
Scott and Jean are on vacation but wouldn't you know it, their plane gets attacked. No peace for some.
Tommy Lee Edwards turns in the best art of the issue but it's only 4 pages.
X-Men Unlimited 18 - Defalco & Frusin
Following his trial, Gambit is on the loose doing something or other and getting spooky visions along the way.
They all lambast him for being a jerk.
But then at the end all his visions/ghosts turn up to cheer him on. Hooray! What a rubbish issue.
X-Men Unlimited 17 - Kavanagh & Lyle
Strangely, this issue fits in best after issue 18. Go figure. To be fair though, I wouldn't advise anyone to read either. This is a Wolvie/Sabretooth tale and it's lame.
Wolvie all in purple, skiiing. Can you actually see that happening? Me neither. Anyway, there's sometrhing called the Neutraliser and it's bad.
Wolvie ends up fighting Sabretooth but I've honestly forgotten why and don't really care.
