This is a fun, no-harm-done look into the Marvel Universe afterlife, an arbitrary chaos if ever there was one. Milligan strikes the correct balance between reverence for the characters while openly mocking the apparent absurd universe from which they spring forth and must deal. Much like real life, eh? Trapped in a world we never made.

It can be a little too silly at times, but silliness is probably necessary or else we'd get all depressed thinking about how the afterlife as expressed here is ess

This probably flew under too many people's radars, which is a shame because it's hilarious, a little dorky, and the art is awesome comic-pop.

I'm not sure what Dr Strange is really like, but in this he's kind of a kook, and has apparently been having problems with hemorrhoids. I even laughed out loud a couple times, which is a hard thing to do when dealing with super hero comics, I think. Between Milligan's writing, Dragotta's pencils (with Mike Allred inking), and Marvel's cast of dead characte

I didn't get as much of a kick out of this as I did Milligan's original X-Force/X-Statix run. Dead Girl didn't stick to its premise, which was to take shots at the trope of comics characters dying and come back. Milligan took shots at every trope as it came up--Dr. Strange's quirks, his servant's, the supervillain getting repeatedly beaten, etc.--and even threw in some self-referential X-Statix stuff.

It's good for a single read but in the end, it felt like I Can't Believe It's Not the Justice Le

Está medio loca, está muy fuerte, ¡y está completamente muerta! Las tanáticas aventuras de Chica Muerta en solitario (*) en un único y destrenillante tomo, en el que los muertos hacen lo que sea para volver a respirar un ratito.


*técnicamente, en la mayor parte de la aventura está acompañada por un abombado Dr. Strange, pero por algo la miniserie tiene le nombre de ella sola en el título, ¿no?

Recommends it for: A los mismos que a los demás tomos.
Recommended to Fugo by: El nombre de su autor.
Este tomo me lo compré como autorregalo para festejar algo que al final no se dio, pero me dio varias alegrías igual. Lástima que al haberlo leído antes que la serie que lo precede me espoileé un par de cosas. Ahora que estoy leyendo toda la serie cronológicamente, seguro cuando llegue al final me lo relea y escriba su correspondiente reseña.

This is a much more apt ending for the comic than the final arc of the original series. It's a funny, wacky tale that also does a great job of letting some of the X-Forcers be heroes one last time [7+/10].

This one is the best one I think for X-Statix just for the fact they brought in some dead Marvel characters.
