The Brooklyn punk scene has never been cooler with DAZZLER's new band taking center stage. But while she's trying to find herself and reconnect to the one thing she's always loved, Dazzler stumbles upon a truly toxic part of the underground punk scene. When a new and violent gang threatens the young Inhuman fans that follow her from venue to venue, Dazzler may have to turn to her own past to provide some guidance--and butt kicking.
Written by the Eisner-nominated Magdalene Visaggio, and drawn by the incredible Laura Braga, DAZZLER: X SONG is an energetic epic that you won't want to miss.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jun 10, 2018

    Dazzler X-Song#1light show visuals from Laura Braga and Rachelle Rosenberg that perfectly fit a book starring Alison Blaire and a strong message of pride and intersectionality from Magdalene Visaggio. It shows that cool mutant/Inhuman powers, social commentary, characters arc, and sassy humor can co-exist in one great comic book. Now, I need a follow up comic where Alison meets Karen O… Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Ouellette Jun 7, 2018

    Dazzler X-Song #1 is an insightful and well-made self-contained character story with strong relevant themes, propelling this often underused X-Woman forward. The decision of our lightengale to be a hero for everyone is a strong theme expected to follow her into Astonishing X-Men this summer. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 7, 2018

    Dazzler: X-Song #1 is an excellent self-contained story centering around the ever-lovable Allison Blaire of the X-Men. The themes are interesting, the characters that are supposed to be likable succeed in being so, and the art looks great. Read Full Review

    Hola Amigos... oh wait, this isn't America! Lemme try this again, Hello dudes!!

    This is one weird comic, let me tell you about that! This was apparently meant to come out more than a year ago, which is why the whole inhumans/mutants conflict is being brought up again -- much to the dismay of everyone that wanted to forget the events of IvX. More importantly, while completely ignoring the little part of the terrigen mist killing mutants.

    It's also a supposed to be a metaphor on intersectionality and that infighting among minorites and activist groups is not productive -- this is why you end up with a transexual woman being harassed by a TERF, I mean an Inhuman being harassed by a radical mutant -- which is not a bad me more

    There is very little to like in this farrago of nonsense.

    This issue can be likened to Justin Bieber. Not only does it involve singing, it is also visually decent to look at. Unfortunately, everything else about it is complete suckage. The writing is extremely cliche and cringy, while the plot is derivative and boring. There's no depth and the annoyance level is hard to bear. Just like Justin Bieber, I couldn't wait for this one to be over.

    Alison is trying to concentrate on her music, but the ugly growth of a mutant-supremacy movement on the fringe of her fanbase forces her to do a little heroing. It's a pretty well-told story and the art is outstanding, but good Lord the stakes could not be lower. Spending all this talent to bring forth baby's first "Bigotry Is Bad" moral is a let-down. It doesn't help that the script falls into a classic "aimless protagonist = aimless plot" trap, either. It's quite enjoyable, but it's also thoroughly lightweight.

    I find that too long and with any taste. The only thing that can be use is seen Piotr going see her. And the real interesting thing is to see that she still have the Dazzler/Thor's Mjolnir.

    Cover - Love the variant & related in a way. 1.5/2
    Writing - There is some interesting part. But it's too long and not that great. 1/3
    Arts - The art do the job without been very good. 1.5/3
    Feeling - Will be forgotten soon enough 0/2

    The writer fully admits she didn’t even read early Dazzler issues. It’s very clear. She has no concept of Alison. It’s almost like she was writing a character she wanted, not one that already existed,
