And on seeing said enemy, I shrugged - I shouldn't say who the person is, as it's a last page reveal, but imagine the most played-out of Logan's playmates and you're there. Mind, I'd already decided not to bother with any further issues of this series - this comic isn't awful, but it's just not very interesting. The tone is TV movie, with our heroes the questing strangers in an unfriendly town. The artwork by Brahm Revel, who's also writing, does the job, being gloomy and lumpy and featuring plainer than usual versions of Kitty and co. I like it. But I'm not sure Revel is terribly familiar with the X-Men.
For one thing, to have Rachel Grey utterly freak out at seeing a kid hunted down makes no sense. Yes, she feels his fear, but she's a refugee from a dystopian future in which she personally hunted down mutants. It's later suggested the boy has been murdered - Revel should have made that clear at the start - but still, Rachel has seen untold horrors as a member of Excalibur and the X-Men. She should have rallied her teammates; instead she's back at the Jean Grey School, shivering and snivelling.
And then there's this moment (click on image to enlarge).
And then there's Kitty's reaction to the situation.
No, this isn't a bad comic, but it's not my cup of tea. Lord knows why it's being released under the supposedly edgier Marvel Knights imprint - it's just an X-Men book with a dimmer switch. Instead of unleashing one more X-Men series on the world, couldn't Marvel give the undoubtedly talented Revel the freedom to create something all-new, all-different?
