Read from January 13 to 16, 2012

A 1982 graphic novel dealing with racism. In this tale a religious minister with secrets of his own gets the masses to rise up against the mutants while the mutants somewhat ironically try to approach the problem with reason. As one can expect the affair gets out of hand and superhero tactics ensue. This particular comic influenced the film, X2.
I'd say the mental nightmares for Xavier were the best. A lot of this was above average to somewhat good in story elements. Some of the superheroes had that whole thinking of what I'm going to do while doing it which slows everything down. X Men fans will like it, regardless, I suspect.

ARTWORK: C plus; STORY/PLOTTING: B minus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B minus; WHEN READ: mid January 2012; OVERALL GRADE: B minus.
