Don't let the serious cover fool you, the inside of this comic is some silly fun straight out absurd days of villains who drove clown-cars through coffee shops and terrorist organizations set up shops in pet stores. Yeah this is zany, and that's just fine.
I had no idea who Lee Black was but he seems at home making fun comics that are light-hearted and fun--with this story set squarely in the X-Men's past when they were all teenagers and there were only a few of them studying under Xavier. I know Dean Haspiel a bit and his art style works perfectly for the plot of this comic--cute and absurd. Plus this comic is genuinely funny.
|Even Batroc's sound effects have an accent!
4 out of 5 stars.
