    COMICON

    Marauders takes a moment to pause between the previous action stories and the big Hellfire Gala event on the horizon for a more contained character-focus heavy issue. Gorgeous detailed artwork gives all the main characters a chance to shine and get their closeup in this issue while the colors make sure to keep up the light & dark duality of this series. Character moments are truly where this book flourishes and hopefully there will be far more room for those moments as the book rolls onward.

    This is a nice one-shot story that focuses on the many exploits of Storm and how her teammates on the Marauders perceive her. She’s a warrior, a leader, a surgeon, and a fighter and she’s a sum of all those parts. What makes this comic truly exceptional is how great all the character acting is and how every reaction and expression tells another tale in itself. Marauders #20 is brimming with humanity through storytelling.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Storm is one of the most underrated heroes in comics. For being the powerhouse that she is, Storm should have Wolverine clout. Compared to her status back in the ’70s, 80’s, and 90’s, Storm has calmed down. Even with her being a part of the Marauders, she has been slightly…underwhelming. This issue promises that there is much more to come from Storm. I highly recommend picking up Marauders #20. This is a Storm centric issue. It is…it is a heartwarming comedy that reminds us why Storm was once worshipped as a goddess.

    This is not necessary reading in the traditional sense, but for Marauders fans, it is the epitome of what you love about the series, so to you I say yes, it is quite necessary indeed.

    Exquisite art elevates what could otherwise be described as an ocean-bound flashback episode.

    Comics: The Gathering

    Overall this was a fun book that looks back and says goodbye to one of its members. It’s not groundbreaking, but it does have some touching moments.

    Entertaining enough issue that lacks any real bite because it’s mostly flashbacks to what this series should have been all along. I’m still disappointed we didn’t actually get an X-Pirates comic.
