The 40 Years of Comics Project - Day 208: The Amazing X-Men #4, June 1995


I don't have anything to say about this comic.

Isn't that odd?

This is pretty much all set-up for the final showdown in X-Men:Omega, and as such manages to look like it's got a lot of action and drama when it really doesn't. There's even a thoroughly terrible line where one of the characters (and I can't even be bothered to check which) says something along the lines of "It looks like all of Magneto's plans are coming to fruition." Because it was so hard for us to get that ourselves.

Nope, sorry. Fabian Nicieza's writing on this one is really quite terrible, I'm afraid. Everything that happened could have been done in an aside in one of the other stories.

Hopefully tomorrow's comic will be better. See you then.
