It’s time for some space shenanigans!
So this was an alright issue. It was fun and had a light, easy story of what clearly is a filler issue. Not much really happens here than taking the template for a Star Wars story and putting a mutant overlay on top of it. So much of this story oozed Star Wars down to how Kate Pryde was dressed, to the scene in the Cantina… I mean The Red Lagoon. Did Han shoot first? It doesn’t matter in this version but you can tell that this issue was heavily inspired by that scene between Han and Greedo. I’m not sure the reason for doing such a heavily Star Wars inspired issue, but it somewhat works here.
One of the best moments and really one of the only moments that matters, happens at the end of the issue. While most of the issue reads as filler, this tease has me excited to see where things are going to go. That seems to be a trend in this series. Just when you are about to write off the series, it drops something at the end of the current issue to keep you interested.
It’s great to have Phil Noto do the art for this issue. He is such a talented artist that he makes even a lackluster story that much more exciting. His pages really sell the Star Wars inspiration that is so heavily weaved throughout the issue. I love his Emma Frost and I’m excited for more in the next issue.
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.
