    A surprisingly deep character analysis of what can sometimes be two very difficult characters to relate to. So much so I barely noticed the lack of Honey B…Scout. All of which makes me see this was the team up I never asked for and didnt expect to love as much as I did.

    The best kind of one-shot fill-in issue. This issue made me want more from this creative team, and it filled in blanks for characters that greatly needed it. Highly recommended.

    Danny Lore fills in as writer on New Mutants #29, teaming with artist Guillermo Sanna for a one-shot story pairing Daken with Warpath. Both characters are reeling from recent events involving their siblings, the death of Scout in Daken’s case, and the resurrection of Thunderbird for Warpath. The different ways these characters deal with the emotional baggage hefted on them by these events makes them an interesting pairing, and the unpacking emotions is in keeping with the themes of New Mutants ever since Vita Ayala took over as regular writer. Sanna has a style that in the school of Mike Mignola, which is more a break from what New Mutants readers are used to compared to regular artist Rod Reis but is appealing nonetheless. It’s a solid issue that fits right in with what came before. Fans of the series should be pleased.

    New Mutants #29 works well as a one-and-done. Its not exactly an issue that will hook a new reader, as it deals with a lot of stuff that a reader would need to know, but Lore does a good job. Sanna and Brown deliver some kinetic action, but the character acting isnt as strong. This one is a fun comic and a great read, despite some of its flaws.
