All-New X-Men #18 [Marvel Comics] Review

By
Posted on November 16, 2013 AT 08:33pm

The aftermath of “Battle of the Atom” is finally beginning to show itself as the All-New team joins Scott Summers and Uncanny X-Men after the events of the big crossover. With the original team in tow, Professor Kitty Pryde is set on a brand new adventure, leaving the Jean Grey School for the newly appropriated  Charles Xavier School.

After the craziness that was “Battle Of The Atom”, Kitty Pryde decided that she and her students could no longer live with the decisions made by the team over at the Jean Grey school (which is pretty much all the X-Men not with Cyclops) and goes to give life at the new Xavier School with Cyclops, Emma , Magneto and the new kids. This leads to be a bit of a ride awakening for Kitty and her students as they find that their are some major differences that could wind up begin a problem sooner or later.

Brian Bendis has some major work on his hands after creating some craziness in the latest crossover. While the location has gotten a bit easier between the two books, keeping them two distinct books might become an issue later on, even with the plethora of characters at his disposal. This was a fun issue, however, with the team coming to terms with their new surroundings and everything they’ve found out since there were over two dozen X-Men in the same space at the same time.

The good news on the art front is that the main team is back once again. Stuart Immonen, Wade Von Grawbadger and Marte Gracia are a spectacular team, and with their return comes the re-emergence of one of the best books in comics at the moment. The bright colors and definitive lines make this a gorgeous book that everyone should be reading.

Summary: One of the best books in the Marvel roster is back and has not lost a step after melding with two other books for the last few months. There’s terrific character work, a great premise and gorgeous artwork that make this a terrific read every month. Those not reading the tale of the time-traveling X-Men are missing out, and should be fixing the mistake of not reading this title.

Pros: Terrific artwork, fun story.

Cons: N/A

Grade: A+

 

Russ Pirozek, known as "Noobcrawler" to some, is a gamer and comic book fan who sometimes gets around to writing for DigitalNoob.com. He's also awesome. If someone looked up "awesome" in the dictionary, his picture wouldn't be there, but that's because he's too busy being awesome to pose for a photo.
