Big thank you to Kat Stark for the amazing banners!!

Hey, it’s “Red” week for the Shallow Readers and because Mephisto is a wannabe Lucifer, the colorist’s use red ink for him. How lucky for me since this was a hold over from "Evil" week.

This volume has Mephisto vs. The Fantastic Four, X-Factor, the X-Men and the Avengers. Sounds pretty awesome doesn’t it. Let’s check the publishing date: 1987.


This means it looks like a ‘60’s comic (artwork: John Buscema, not a bad thing) and reads like a ‘6

I've always been fascinated by Mephisto as a character, and think he deserves better treatment than he typically gets.

This series is strictly mediocre, at best.

This book is only enjoyable for the John Buscema art. A four-issue miniseries about Mephisto? Really? At least it ties in to Walt Simonson's Thor run. It kind of explains the whereabouts of the two teams of Avengers from both coasts while Thor was experiencing the the living death of his physical body rendered to a gelatinous mass.

That and of course, the John Buscema art doesn't make this entirely a waste of time.
While this is a typical late 1980s comic crossover miniseries from Marvel, some of the way it is written and executed to tie into the various other titles (Fantastic Four, X-Factor, X-Men, Avengers, West Coast Avengers and particularly Thor) leaves a lot to be desired. Basically the ending, dialogue and characterizations reveal that this is only a crossover mini-series done with the sole intention of marketing and capitalizing on the anticipated increased sales from the crossover.

Una mini di 4 con una discreta idea di fondo, che avrebbe dovuto essere il preludio per qualche grande saga o crossover che non si fece mai. Mefisto, l'arcidemone della Marvel, non il nemico di Tex, sta cercando di acquisire anime di valore sempre crescente per una futura guerra infernale. Affronta in sequenza i Fantastici Quattro, gli X-Factor (ossia gli X-Men originali) gli X-Men e infine, per l'anima di Thor, i Vendicatori di entrambe le coste.

This story following Mephisto's attempt to play swapsys with super hero souls is well researched to not contradict the comics of the time. it was entertaining, but left me with little impact. A nice bit of 80's comics, but not much more.

"One More Day" should have been included in this trade as "Mephisto vs Spider-Man" :P
