Review: Targitt #2

Targitt heads to Alaska to foil a plot by an American corporation and Third-World powers to manipulate world oil prices. Gabriel Levy and Ric Meyers’ story might have limited appeal, but the visual storytelling – by 1950s comic-book artist Howard Nostrand – is strong.

Wolverine and Nightcrawler team with members of Alpha Flight to confront the wilderness terror of the Wendigo. While not as strong as some issues from their run, Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin still deliver another enjoyable outing here.

Review: X-Men Annual #4

A powerful Romani sorceress hellbent on revenge sends Nightcrawler to infernal damnation – or does she? On its own merits, this is an interesting outing from the team of Chris Claremont, John Romita Jr. and Bob McLeod. But it feels like a letdown in the wake of “The Dark Phoenix Saga.”

Review: Warlord #15

After an extended absence, Warlord finally makes his way back to Tara – only to find Shamballah under siege from within! Mike Grell’s story is a bit overstuffed but the art – inked by Joe Rubinstein – is quite nice.
