The New Mutants # 17 0

The New Mutants travel to Limbo in search of an abducted Pixie, and encounter Project Purgatory's solution to demonic menaces to Earth-616, a ten-mutant strike force known as the Inferno Babies.    The Good  The entire issue is fulfilled with suspense, action, and intrigue, as the New Mutants encounter the infants that they had rescued years before during the events of Inferno. I really enjoyed the art by Leonard Kirk in this issue. He did a good job of visualizing Limbo, and the demonic inhabit...

X-Men Unlimited # 37 0

"Sacrificial Worlds" is one of those stand-alone issues that successfully manages to tell a most profound tale within a limited amount of space. Kaare Andrews writing is both sharp and emotional, and infuses the appropriate amount of action with the restrictions imposed on it. Worlds tells the tale of Hutch, Illyana Rasputin's son from an alternate reality, who is cursed to live between realities, or risk destroying all creation. There are a number of differen...

Breaking Into Comics The Marvel Way # 2 0

Jonathan Hickman and Gabriel Hernandez Walta present an alternate real...

Nation X # 3 0

Big Boy Pants Kids! What are you going to do with them? You can't really teleport them to a nightmarish pocket dimension when they misbehave. Oh, wait! That's exactly what Magik does when Anole complains how farming work is beneath the mutant race. Victor obviously was not aware that Illyana spent the first part of her life on a farm in Siberia. For five days, Magik leaves Anole in Limbo to contemplate his statement alone, while mere mo...

Uncanny X-Men # 303 0

The Legacy Virus claims it's first victim in a profoundly emotional tale of loss by Scott Lobdell and guest artist Richard Bennett, told through the perspective of Jubilation Lee, also known as Jubilee.

Mystic Arcana: Magik # 1 0

This issue of Mystic Arcana takes place during New Mutants # 32, when Magik and Mirage escaped to ancient Egypt via a teleportation disc, and met Ashake, an ancestor of Storm, as they battle the evil sorcerer, Heka-Nut. This is a stand-alone entry featuring Illyana Rasputin, and only further serves to add to prior history. With the exception of including Magik as a piece of the Marvel Tarot, it does not expound upon her current history in the Marvel Univ...

Exiles # 26 0

Illyana Rasputin joins the Exiles team for her first mission in a world where practically every super hero is for hire, and the first clues to her unpredictable and homicidal nature comes to light. This is an extremely fun issue, as Chuck Austen leaves Magik's morals and ethics at the door, in favor of mindless bloodshed. When the Tallus informs the Exiles that they must kill the Avengers in order to move on to the next world, the team struggles to find an answer to their dilemma. Magik, however...

X-Infernus # 1 0

Resurrected by the demonic sorcerer Belasco, the Darkchilde searches for both her Soulsword and the Blood Stones, pieces of her soul that have been corrupted by her former mentor and placed inside the Beatrice Medallion.

Magik: Storm And Illyana # 1 0

Truly a ground-breaking addition to the Marvel Universe, Magik: Storm And Illyana is the series responsible for turning me  on to comic books in the first place. It tells the story of Illyana Rasputin, the little sister of X-Man Colossus, of her abduction from the Xavier Institute For Higher Learning by the sorcerer Belasco, and her subsequent training in the otherdimensional realm of Limbo by alternate reality versions of X-Men Kitty Pryde...
