    Stunning art and a roguish plot make this book stand out, leaving competitive books firmly in the background.

    A space adventure on Arakko and beyond is just what Marauders needed to get this series back on track after a couple of issues with some serious social missteps. The force is strong with this one as the influences and homages are clear and prevalent through the issue, where the art team spares no expense at bringing this science-fiction realm to vivid life.

    The last couple issues of Marauders have felt like filler episodes, but I was happy to see some good action and real stakes this time around. Lourdes Chantel got the teaser trailer in issue #22 and that cliffhanger Duggan just dropped on us leaves no doubt that it’s about to go down!

    Look, Duggan has the uncanny ability to hook even this space hater into an interesting story. This was the saving grace in this issue. Seriously, Duggan is a wizard with a pen (or pencil). The story moved along in a natural way that kept the plot entertaining. The biggest downfall is the art. Will Noto rebound? I’m sure of it, but it was a bit hard to overlook it in this issue.

    Marauders #24 is a good one-shot that introduces a formidable foe. His abilities seem to be super powerful up at the expense of our heroes, but if you’re excited for a strong Star Wars vibe in an X-Men comic you’ve come to the right place.

    Comics: The Gathering

    Overall, this was a fun issue. It felt like a filler issue that also was heavily influenced by Star Wars. If you’re a fan of Star Wars and want to see what it would look like with a mutant filter then check this issue out.

    There’s a bit of a space opera feel to Marvel’s latest issue of Marauders, but that’s far from a bad thing. Even the opening looks straight out of Star Wars, and having the Marauders a bit outside of their usual surroundings provides some delightful moments of comedy and intrigue, especially when Kate Pryde and Emma Frost are involved.
