Review: New Mutants #2

New Mutants #2

New Mutants #2 shifts the focus of the series a bit. The team is still busted by the Shi’ar but it feels less like a team comic. Instead, it feels like Roberto da Costa and the New Mutants. Much of the issue is told from his perspective. It makes sense as the mission of the New Mutants is focused on Roberto getting back his best friend in Sam Guthrie.

The comic is the Roberto show as Jonathan Hickman dives into the character and his relationship with his team. We get the loveable and entertaining arrogance on full display as he brags about his lawyers, homes, and how good looking he is. There’s a charm in Hickman’s writing which is good since it’d be so easy to make the character so unlikeable.

But, Hickman has time for other characters as well. Many of them get their moments, much of it full of humor. Out of all of the Dawn of X series, this one displays the most fun and carefree attitude of the bunch. There’s a youthful fun about it all that makes it stand out. That fun extends off the page as it’s hard to not enjoy reading the comic. The flow, style, humor, the whole package deliver an entertaining read.

The art by Rod Reis is great. With lettering by Travis Lanham, the comic features Reis’ unique style that’s hard to describe. It’s almost painted in a way and gives the series a unique design. There’s not quite as much detail as other artists but the style has a flair about it and fits a space adventure like this quite well.

New Mutants #2 continues the fun adventure. While the focus shifts a little, the comic is still all about the team and character interactions. There’s a lot of humor to the comic and everything is with a wink, smile, and a nod. There’s a charm about this series that’s infectious and makes it stand out.

Watch the Next Generation of Mutants Claim the Dawn in the New Mutants #1 Trailer

Following the events of Jonathan Hickman’s House of X, the outlook for mutantkind has never been brighter! But with challenges still on the horizon, it’s up to the mutant youth to continue the newfound success of their species into the future! See what’s coming for mutants next in this launch trailer featuring Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, Senior Editor Jordan D. White, and writer Ed Brisson!

The New Mutants have reunited under the banner of Krakoa, but they won’t be staying in the new home for long! Their first mission: retrieve their errant comrade Cannonball from the depths of space. Joined by former Generation X members Chamber and Mondo, the New Mutants head for the stars, but quickly come into conflict with both the Shi’ar and the Starjammers!

Review: New Mutants #1

New Mutants #1

New Mutants #1 kicks the next generation of mutants into an intergalactic adventure. The original team is back together with new members Mondo and Chamber but one member is missing. Sam Guthrie, Cannonball, is still in space and the team wants to go out and get him. So, they hitch a ride with the Starjammers.

Written by Ed Brisson and Jonathan Hickman, the debut issue is absolutely fantastic. There’s so much personality and fun oozing from the pages and characters. And that’s helped in a way by the simplicity of the series. It’s a journey to find a friend, nothing more. But, that journey leaves open so much opportunity for adventure.

What Brisson and Hickman nail down is the personality of all of the characters. Each get their moments and each are unique. You get a sense of who everyone is and the two writers have these characters down in their attitudes and speech patterns.

There’s also something just fun about the comic. Jokes are made and a scene as simple as a sparring session adds to the depth of the characters and situation. There’s real thought put into the comic and it shows. Some of that includes touching upon how this all relates to Krakoa and “Dawn of X.” There’s revelations as far as that but nothing is jarring for new readers. Instead, the focus is on Cannonball and these friends getting back together.

That includes the return of Rahne Sinclair, Wolfsbane, who was murdered in the last volume of Uncanny X-Men. Seeing her return feels like it rights a wrong but like all the other return of the dead, it feels rather hallow. It is nice in that there’s a religious connotation about it all and the character being deeply Catholic, it’s a much-needed detail.

The art by Rod Reis is fantastic. Travis Lanham provides lettering and the combination is the best looking of the new line of X comics. The characters all look fantastic and there’s just some amazing panels. Tom Muller continues on design and like other Dawn of X books, there’s use of this to enhance the world.

New Mutants #1 is a hell of a debut that’s just a lot of fun and one of the best things to come out of “Dawn of X.” The issue captures something that’s been missing from the numerous attempted reboots over the years and carves out a unique space in the line of comics.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

b.b. free #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A plague has devastated the world and b.b. free is the actual chose one on the run from her own family.

Bolivar Eats New York Discovery Adventure (BOOM! Studios) – A mix between an object finding book and a graphic novel, the story continues the adventure of Bolivar, a dinosaur living in New York City. Amazing art and adorable story.

Doctor Doom #2 (Marvel) – Doom has surrendered to the world authority after the horrific events of the first issue. That issue knocked it out of the park and we’re expecting no less from this one.

Dragonfly & Dragonflyman #1 (AHOY Comics) – The follow up to The Wrong Earth, the series follows two heroes who are stranded on each other’s Earth. One is gritty while the other the more innocent time of superheroes. It’s a love letter to superhero comics and a must for all fans of the genre.

Going to the Chapel #3 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The heist continues as the gang’s attempt to rob a wedding goes so off the rails. It’s a crime story that’s worthy of the big screen, keeps you on your toes, and gets you to laugh.

Heist, How to Steal a Planet #1 (Vault Comics) – It’s Ocean’s Eleven in space as a group attempts to steal a world.

Legion of Super-Heroes #1 (DC Comics) – The classic property is back and with DC having a renewed focus on its future timeline, this should be interesting.

New Mutants #1/X-Force #1 (Marvel) – More Dawn of X debuts and we’re intrigued how each series will stand out for itself.

Pandemica #2 (IDW Publishing) – Tailored diseases that get out of control. This is a political disaster film and frighteningly real.

Strange Skies Over East Berlin #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Something fell from the sky behind the Berlin Wall. This is the Cold War with an alien twist.

Undiscovered Country #1 (Image Comics) – The United States has walled itself off from the world. This is the story of the people out to discover what awaits in the country beyond the wall.
