Its been a long time since a new X-men comic book story was published and now the wait has ended because X-men Forever is here. Fortunately, the collaboration of Chris Claremont and Jim Lee to create the X-men Forever is a success and the new issue was sold out! When you read this one, you cannot tell that the last issue was released way back in 1991 because the story was continued like the past only happened yesterday.
For some, especially those who were able to read the last issue in 1991, will surely appreciate and might even reminisce the past issue. It has a very old-school feel into it like it was just written yesterday. But still some people might treat this one as a new story, plot, adventure or whatever especially when they were not able to read any X-men Forever issues in the past. So, if you have not read any past issues of X-men Forever, reading the first page on this one might confuse you or you might feel like that there is something missing. But just keep on reading and you will surely appreciate the story in the end.
When it comes to the illustration part, everything went smoothly. Tom Grummet made a good job at infusing the look of the past characters to a more modern character. The battle with Cortez looks great and very smoothly done which made the story more appealing.
Even if X-men Forever felt like dwelling in the past, we still cannot remove the fact that without the past, we will not be able to get into reading X-men Forever now.
