    Comics: The Gathering

    What this series does is bring all of the fun of the 90s series into something that still reads a little more modernly which is a perfect balance. To be honest, I can’t speak for how readers who are unfamiliar with the 90s series are going to take to this series. It’s fun, a little campy, and extremely nostalgic and it’s perfect for a fan like me.

    If you weren’t a fan of the X-men in the 1990s then this book may miss the mark with you. It’s intentionally written and drawn with that time period in mind. I personally loved it as it brought back a lot of great, and not so great memories of that era with a story that’s still entertaining despite the high level of exposition and heavy handed dialogue. X-Men ’92 is trying to be a product of its time, it just happens to be of a time that took place over twenty years ago. And that’s perfectly fine by me!

    As I said earlier, I was expecting the comic book version of the team, not the Saturday morning cartoon version, but I have to admit this was really fun to read. As I turned the pages, seeing the team in the costumes we all know and love, I couldn’t help but play the cartoon theme song in my head as I read. The shopping Wolverine, and the sugary sweet exchanges between Jean and Cyclops not withstanding, Chad Bowers and Chris Sims give us the X-Men we remember, as well as some background to this region of Battleworld, something a lot of the other tie in books don’t explain. Scott Koblish’s art is perfect for this title, giving it the cartoon feel that sells the feel of the animated series. I am curious to see more about Clear Mountain, Casandra Nova and the sinister secret I’m sure this rehabilitation camp is hiding.

    If you’re as big an X fan as I am and looking for a throwback to Saturday mornings, I recommend checking this title out.

    X-Men ’92 is an entertaining read, especially for those already familiar with the classic characters. Sims and Bowers hit all the appropriate notes, their script loaded with source callbacks. That same focus on recreating the tone hinders the book’s overall pacing some, but Koblish’s loaded art helps carry it through till the end.

    Weekly Comic Book Review

    There’s a lot of hits here but unfortunately its share of misses, too. It takes advantage of the infinite-style of digital comics, resulting in some pleasing point-by-point panel progression, except for those few moments when it’s confusing and when my rhythm of clicking is disrupted by paragraphs of dialogue. There’s a lot of groundwork here for an X-Men story that’s completely separate to the Secret Wars event, resulting in a new kind of X-Men story told with familiar characters, but there’s a lot of gear-grinding before the vehicle gets moving.
