Good comic, great price from Buy.com

by Gary on 7/5/2007

Discounted by one star because plot echoes one of the themes not only in one of the X-Men movies but also repeated a good deal in the comics themselves, i.e. someone develops a "cure" for mutant genes. Otherwise, great fun overall and Joss Wheedon fans as well as X-Men fans should enjoy it. One tidbit for comics afficionados: With bringing Nick Fury back to the comic pages, the illustrator, John Cassady intentionally and lovingly emulates, and thus offers a homage to Jim Steranko, whose brilliant and original panel styles and visual effects created in the late 1960's for the Marvel series, "Nick Fury, Agent of Shield," changed how all comics were drawn thereafter.
