capn_carrot's Uncanny X-Men #8 review

Avatar image for capn_carrot

Back from Limbo, Back to Reality

The first issue following the Limbo arc plays on a pair of classic X-Men themes as Fabio faces the questions and concerns of his family when he returns to them and reveals his mutant powers and the X-Men rescue another young mutant whose public display of his new found powers get him shot by a trigger-happy cop. Both are very common kinds of stories the various X-titles have dealt with for decades and both have their moments including finally picking up the thread of Dazzler's story introduced months ago. We also get a conversation between Cyclops and Magneto to clarify to each other, and the readers, where exactly the pair stand going forward.

One final note, I'd actually rate this a 3.5 instead of a 3. You can find more of my reviews (with images) on RazorFine Reviews

    COVER ART: 4.5/5CHRIS BACHALO does everything almost perfect in this cover! He created this great energy and buzz with this cover. We know Magneto had semi-betrayed the X-Men in the first few issues so is this going to be the "clash of the titans" between Scott and Eric that this cover is representing? Well, no, not at all, and that is why it loses a half star. Chris pulled a little bit of a switcharoo on us fans, but ultimately I am okay with it as the story was very well done and the cover it...
