    First the positive. Nate was still hanging around, which makes me think that he's going to be a regular in this title, which is great because that means Nate will be SOMEWHERE, which is better than nothing. Yes, it pissed me off to no end that Our Lord and Savior Hope had to come into the Danger Room and save Nate, but I'll deal with those little indignities in order to see my favorite comic character back in action again. Overall, I liked this comic. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning managed to make Magik(somewhat) likable, which is a minor miracle since I always saw her as a bit of a bitch. The therapist was kind of tough on Karma and Cannonball, but it made for a good read. As long as Nate is in this series I see myself enjoying it, since I know in my heart that Abnett and Lanning's work with Nate can never be as bad as the crap that used to go on in the X-Man series... The next few issues look to be Fear Itself x-overs, so we'll see how that works out. Read Full Review

    This is a great issue because it manages to give us some character development and recap a number of storylines at the same time. This is a great jumping off point for people who want to pick up the book, and who want to be ready for the crazyness in the coming months. If the art was a little better, I would've given this five stars, easily. Read Full Review

    "New Mutants" #28 is a good enough issue, but a lot will depend on how much and soon Abnett and Lanning follow-up. Only time will ultimately tell if this is just a one-issue stalling technique, or truly part of something greater. With the title jumping into the depths of "Fear Itself" next month, though, that's an answer that will have to wait for now. Read Full Review
