it was ok
bookshelves: comics
Read in November, 2009

The plot was so-so. It contained a lot of supernatural elements, and the problem with magic is that it's no fun if it doesn't have to operate within rules and limitations. Perhaps if I was more familiar with the Marvel universe I'd be aware of the fantasy context.

The artwork was also so-so. Generally fairly appealing, but facial features were inconsistent and the women all look the same. It starts out very grim and serious and the mood was completely broken for me when Nightcrawler goes to a hospital to interview a nurse who is dressed in a Sexy Nurse outfit. Real nurses do not actually wear those! I have no problem with spandex bodysuits that perfectly outline every curve, but civilian dresses should not show buttcheeks and tits like that, folds just do not work that way.
