    This issue was a fun read, with good art and an enjoyable story. What more could you ask for in a comic?

    All in all another stellar win for my favorite X-book each and every month, and here’s hoping the party never ends.

    After being more focused on acquisitions and political maneuvering, Marauders #23 takes the book back to some face-punching crime-fighting.

    Overall Marauders was a lot of fun. Yes, it screamed filler issue, but it was so fun and getting to see Banshee back in action was well worth it.

    Marauders is a series that has continuously treaded water for far too long while far too often stepping on the wrong side of various serious topics in almost glib or smug ways that do more harm than good. The art team does a good job bringing the energy up within these pages, even if the art style and part of the story heavily clash in tone.

    I loved the team aspect here. The Reavers vs.The Marauders ” this is the type of teamwork that playoff games are made off of. And seeing Shadowcat & Frost perform so cohesively, as if co-captains, was an excellent reference to the relationship that they have grown together since the days when Kitty was choosing between Hellfire & the Xavier Institute like Gryffndor & Slytherin.
