As serious as this comic is, there is a fun kinetic energy about it.
I like the idea of Iceman going evil. He has one of those powers, where if he ever went bad, he would be unstoppable.
This creative team really brings it this issue.
Walta’s facial expressions are spot on.
Peter’s colorings really give the book atmosphere, especially difficult when everything is covered in ice and snow.
I love how Liu has Bobby shout Colossus’ name out to Kitty. He clearly doesn’t know her well enough to truly hurt her. Just going for the easy strikes.
How funny and great is that Dark Beast page? So surreal
I like how Thor was taken down.
I felt really bad about Bobby’s father, that is definitely going to be something he regrets once he’s normal again. Like when they don’t acknowledge that New York City was blanketed in snow, they will always still remember his father.
I am loving Mystique in this as well. She is one of those characters that can show up in three different title, be doing three different things, but still be the same character.
Next issue holds a lot of promise.
