In Review: All New X-Men 15
Written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by David Lafuente, All New X-Men #15 is a far cry from the last 14 issues. Now the question is what happened between last issue and this current issue to make me so completely disenfranchised for this latest issue of what has been to date, my favorite Super Hero title!?
Well, the most obvious difference is the artwork and I must say that the difference between this artist and Stuart Immonen is vast, apparent and light years apart! Lafuente is a fine artist, but there is such a disparity in this issue from all others for me, that I must say that it is the art that has totally turned me off, but truth be told, the story wasn’t really anything to write home about!
I simply was not impressed and worry that my favorite Hero title may be slipping as the only noteworthy occurrence in this issue of some importance is the fact that Henry McCoy has admitted his love for Jean Grey and indeed the two kissed. But I am sorry, that simply was not enough for me and I sincerely wish this book’s creative team remain as it has been for the past 14 issues. In retrospect, I would not buy this issue again! Sorry true believers . . .
