X-Men #34 Review

X-Men #34 Review

Overview:

Tracking down the last of the proto-mutant’s DNA leads the team to a ship full of crazy people.

The Good:

The story is definitely taking a turn for the slightly more espionage, which is great because that means ore Domino, who so far has received the least amount of attention. The story gets really interesting at the end and the implications of what could happen.

***Spoiler Alert***

Even though it won’t happen, probably, it would be really interesting if Psylocke gets injected with proto-mutant DNA. It had a pretty extreme effect on the man, a human, so the effect on a mutant would be interesting. However given Psylocke’s involvement with Uncanny X-Force and Uncanny X-Men, it won’t happen and if it does, it will be for one issue max.

***End Spoilers***

Once again Brian Wood delivers a great story that has a great balance of action and exposition. This guy is on a roll.

Jorge Molina created an excellent cover.

The Bad:

The art by Roland Boschi is not my favorite. The faces look weird, nothing is symmetric (even) and it was very distracting.

Dan Brown, the colorist, screwed up Pixie’s eyes several times by coloring them like normal eyes when they are supposed to be black. This isn’t a huge deal but I like Pixie too much to not mention it.

Verdict:

A Great story from Brian Wood is bogged down by bad art. Still the story is promising and leaves me interested about the next issue. People who have been enjoying the series will continue to while new readers may want to seek out the previous few issue as this story spins out directly from the last one.

    Once again, it's another week and another issue of Adjectiveless X-Men written by the wonderful Brian Wood and illustrated by the splendid David Lopez, though, this time Roland Boschi took the art duties, and although he doesn't quite match up to Lopez, he did an extremely good job.First couple of pages see the sample being passed about between dealers until it reaches some sort of cult...freaky much ?Following from Blank Generation, we're greeted by Scott telling Storm off for not letting him k...
