    Retro European X-fun

    To understand this book some background is needed. This is taking place at a time when most of the X-Men were believed dead, their lives given to defend the world against the Siege Perilous. Left behind were Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler (both who were injured and not with the team), Captain Britain, and Rachel Summers, who was Phoenix at the time. This book picks up the tattered remains of the X-Men, Nightcrawler, Kitty Pryde, Phoenix, Captain Britain, and Megan and forms them into Excalibur. Chris Claremont and Alan Davis created this book, which is set in the British Isles. In this graphic the team is formed, faces some of Mojo¿s creations, the Juggernaut, Arcade and more. Relationships are formed and tested, as everyone is just getting to know each other. However, with that all being said, I must admit that while I love Chris Claremont and worshiped him when he was at the heights of his X-Men glory, this is not his best work. The first half of the graphic feels stilted and is frankly¿. Boring. The last bit of the graphic started to move better and I¿m looking forward to the next graphic to see if Claremont found what he wanted to do with these characters. Alan Davis¿s art is as beautiful as ever, the man has a very stylized form that I happened to gain an attachment to with other X-Books of the time. Buy this book and enjoy it, just be aware that as it is with most introductory works, bugs were still being ironed out when this was written and it isn¿t optimal, but it is enjoyable. Recommended to comic book newcomers and season veterans alike, but especially recommended to X-Men fans and those looking for some `retro¿ fun.
