Marvel Magazine Group Bizarre Adventures Number 27
Three out of five stars
The three stories in this collection all feature one of the members of the X-Men superhero group. The first is about Jean Grey, originally Marvel Girl and then Phoenix being mourned by her sister, the second features Iceman at a winter carnival on the campus of Dartmouth College and the third stars Nightcrawler in a teleportation fiasco.
None of them are really all that engaging on the superhero action front, although the first contains some touching emotional moments of a woman mourning at the grave of her sister. All are in black and white, limiting the quality of the imagery. The one featuring Nightcrawler even has an elderly grandma-type lady on a television screen giving advice to Nightcrawler on how to teleport back to his own time and space from the bizarre place he has ended up. Didn’t work for me.
I am generally a big fan of the X-Men superhero group, in this instance the word to describe was I experiences was “disappointment.”
