I was going to give this 3 (or maybe 3.5) stars due to the unimpressive last few issues in the arc (one of them spends half the pages tracking a crashing plane that never seems to crash, while the other seems largely removed from the main story line), but when I thought back on some of the big things that happened earlier, I decided this collection was worth the full four stars.

Fatal Attractions has a recurring theme between several of its characters: people pushing themselves to their moral lim...more
This is where characterizations start getting a little murky. I think the chief cause is new writers coming in with new takes (or misunderstandings) on characters. The other problem is that for this book the writers had a very obvious couple events they wanted to cause, so they were writing character motivations with the chief end in mind. Overall it is still a fun read. This was considered the X-Men 30th Anniversary celebratory event. It collects one issue from each of the X-titles running at t...more
This was the first time I had read this story since it was originally published in the early 90s. I was surprised at how well it held up, mind you it wasn't great or anything, but it's still readable and a lot of the emotional hits still hold weight today (I don't think the Wolverine bone claw reveal will ever not be awesome). I'd probably give this 3.5 stars if it were possible, but it's definitely closer to three than four.

A ver, a ver... ¿Qué recuerdo de esta historia? Que lo leí en su momento en la edición de dos tomos que sacó Vid. Que el promedio de los dibujos no era particularmente destacable. Que la famosa escena en la que Magneto le quitaba el adamantium a Wolverine estaba mejor dibujada en la portada que dentro del cómic. Que en un sueño mientras se moría, Logan aparecía como un saco deshuesado (imagen que me impactó bastante en su momento). Y muy poco más. No creo que sea una historieta particularmente r...more

Meh... De los 6 números que componen el crossover solo puedo rescatar 2.
Como buen cómic noventero, llega a ser pesado leerlo por la gran cantidad de texto con la que uno se llega a encontrar por sus páginas.
Otro buen aspecto es su valor de colección por los famosos hologramas que vienen en la portada si es que lo conseguiste por números individuales.
The Death of Illyana Rasputin to this day is still one of the hardest comics for me to read. The story of Colossus abandoning "The Dream" because of her death is truly sad. Let's not forget the biggest shock of all- Wolverine's Adamantium being ripped out. Who. Knew. Magneto. WOULD. Do. It!!!!!
