BONUS REVIEW by Dan W.


All 7 issues of Hickman’s X-Men so far have been radically different stories, so it’s perplexing why this wasn’t just a numbered issue of X-Men, instead of a Giant Size one shot that seems like it’s going to be critical to the main plot. That said, it’s amazing, provided you are a Russell Dauterman fan.

An echo of Grant Morrisons New X-Men #121, Giant Size Jean and Emma has no dialogue or text for more than half the issue as Jean and Emma venture into an injured Storm’s psyche, which leaves Dauterman to carry the comic basically on his own.

He succeeds admirably.

Dauterman’s delicate lines animate everything from the flowing lines of hair or psychic power, to the denizens and abstract imagery of Storm’s mind with subtle, then violent energy. There’s nary a wasted line. It’s a silent tour de force of comic book storytelling

I remember when Dauterman took over as the artist of Thor years ago and I wasn’t sure if he had the chops when the brilliant Esad Ribic stepped aside. I was, quite happily, wrong.

Special kudos to colorist Matthew Wilson as well. Fine work)


I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
