Decent stories and good characterizations, but I can't help but miss the original writer. He nailed the personalities a bit better and his stories never felt like filler, as this does. I still miss the team members that were cut; and still don't understand the inclusion of Nate Grey. Hopefully this gets better and the series is just about to be cancelled and these characters will be forgotten or written with completely different personalities.
Another solid instalment of New Mutants. The first issue that sets the team on its new path is very enjoyable, and the final issue that sees Magma going on her date with Mephisto as promised during Fear Itself was hilarious, whilst the Blink three parter in the middle was merely okay. Nothing mindblowing overall, but still good fun.
Indie-ish cartoony art. Silly story about a death metal band's music destroying Chicago. Good single ish story about Amara's date with the devil. Decent all around. Nice to finally see this title work on it's own and not subsumed by and Event.
Generally, a good volume. The main plot line of a heavy metal band taken over by a chaos space entity is a bit silly, but the characterization of the New Mutants still shines. The two one-off, on the other hand, are both great.
