Vote. Die. Repeat. Putting the “Meat” in office meeting. Trust me, bad spelling is the least of the Quiet Council’s problems as everything hits the fan.
COMICON‘Immortal X-Men’ #9 unleashes the most sinister member of the Quiet Council as the series move ever closer to the upcoming ‘Sins of Sinister’ event, in a really darkly fun & informative issue that moves a lot of the brewing plots forward. This is a series that continues to evolve and show off just how many things can be done with such an array of characters that span the range from complicated to amoral to just pure evil.
You Don't Read ComicsImmortal X-Men #9 is a perfect thrill ride. Gillen keeps things light, but the stakes never feel unimportant. Werneck and Curiel’s art complements the script beautifully. Immortal X-Men remains an amazing book.
Comic WatchFor a story involving almost ludicrous amounts of physical carnage, this story was both hilarious, deeply worrying, and very, very fun.
AIPTAnother solid entry from Gillen, 'Immortal X-Men' #9 keeps readers in the (time) loop on Council goings-on, while also continuing to build towards Sins of Sinister.
ComicBook.comKieron Gillen balances what could be bleak gore with Sinister's inappropriate gleefulness and frustration, which makes the issue feel feeling over-the-top and keeps the real darkness of a matter-of-fact accounting of events at bay. It's a fine line to walk, but this issue does it well.
Comic Book RevolutionKieron Gillen delivers an entertaining issue. There is plenty of great character work in this issue. Gillen has a good feel for the various characters. The dialogue is also well crafted. Of course, Mr. Sinister is the star of Immortal X-Men #9. I absolutely adore Gillen’s Mr. Sinister. Gillen captures the bloodthirsty and insane personality of Mr. Sinister, along with giving Mr. Sinister some brilliant humor. Trust me, Mr. Sinister’s dialogue will get you chuckling throughout Immortal X-Men #9.
Major SpoilersThe tone of this book took a change. There wasn’t a massive introspection that each issue of this series had before. It read more like a montage of action sequences. While this was entertaining, I lost a little bit of interest while reading this issue. At least the art has continually been engaging. Good work overall by the creative team.
