Here's a series that's always near the top of my new comic pile. I've said it before, but it needs to be said again... Adding Nate Grey to ANYTHING will ALWAYS make it better!
New Mutants #35:
Summary: Blink manages to save the New Mutants from crashing the Blackbird by teleporting the plane to the ground and safety. From there, Blink explains that she'd been following this band, Diskhord, since everywhere they play a gig seems to unleash some sort of disaster. The New Mutants decide to assist Blink with her investigation into Diskhord, and Moonstar splits the team up, with most of the team going with Blink while Cypher and Warlock head off in search of the energy that nearly downed the Blackbird. On Diskhord's tour bus, Warlock and Cypher discover a box and upon opening it, Warlock is blasted clear out of the bus. Inside the box, Cypher finds a bizarre creature(could it be Quoggoth or Shuma-Gorath itself?!?!) and is knocked out by the very sight of it. Meanwhile, Blink and the New Mutants watch as Diskhord manage to summon a tornado with their instruments and are forced to save the people at the concert, which allows Diskhord to make good their escape on their tour bus, with the apparently dead Cypher along for the ride.
Thoughts: I didn't love this comic, but I didn't hate it either... It was a perfectly acceptable comic book, nothing more, nothing less. I mean the story here was flat out weird, but not weird in that I couldn't understand it, just weird. I enjoyed the art, and Nate was in this issue, so that's always a positive, but I can't say this issue is going to stick in my head after I post this review...
Score: 7 out of 10.My god, if that IS Quoggoth the awesomeness factor in this series just managed to increase by 4. If it's Shuma-Gorath, that factor would increase a hundredfold!
