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.

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.
