New Mutants 37 is a prime example of what every comic needs now and then, a nice, fun fill-in issue that's just as good as the major story lines. This issue, even though it is an in-betweener, blew me away. I loved this simple and hilarious story line of Magma and Mephisto going on a date. We get to see a new side of Mephisto, which is incredibly likable and relate-able. The creative team on this issue is dynamite and the writing and art compliment each other perfectly. I know I said in the last issue that Warlock annoyed me, but I loved the few moments we got with him in here. I don't know if I'm weirdly in the Valentine's Day spirit or something, but this book tickled my heart strings and really brought me back to the days of awkward dates. I love this issue and I highly recommend it. Read Full Review
New Mutants was getting really good again just before the mandated "Fear Itself" crossover almost derailed the book for me permanently. I'm glad I stuck it out. All of the X-books are once again near the top of the quality heap at Marvel Comics, and New Mutants is moving its way up to the top of that pile. Read Full Review
"Date Night" in "New Mutants" is a slightly goofy story, and it's that tone that ends up being its strength. Hopefully this is signaling the end of ignoring Magma, too. As a done-in-one story, this works just fine. Read Full Review
