    We're two issues in, and I already wish this four-issue series was ongoing. Foxe nails each character, and Salva is the perfect artist to bring out the animated show's charm in comic book format. Accept no substitutions. X-Men'97 is the real deal and a perfect complement to the animated series. Read Full Review

    Like the first issue before it, X-Men '97 is content to color inside the lines and doesn't offer much beyond what readers expect from a tie-in title. Read Full Review

    This comic takes place nine months before the new animated series X-men '97 on Disney + and just days after the disappearance of Charles Xavier in the final chapter Graduation Day.

    Mr. Sinister wants to take advantage of Xavier's fall to eliminate the X-men, for that he creates the Sinister Seven who will systematically attack:

    -Cyclops, Jean and Beast are attacked by Hazard.
    -Jubilee, Bishop, Rogue and Gambit are attacked by S more

    Steve Foxe delivers another heaping helping of low-stakes fun, exactly what this mini should be. This issue could have easily been ripped straight from the show’s storyboards.

    Foxe nails the characters perfectly. Every hero & villain drips with the perfect amount of camp, delivering dialogue that sounds like it was lifted straight from the show’s iconic voice actors. In fact, this might be some of Foxe’s best X-Men work in recent memory, easily surpassing Dead X-Men & Dark X-Men.

    The art by Salva Espín & colors by Matt Milla are the perfect complements to the script. The visuals are vibrant & energetic, bouncing off the page w/ a look that perfectly captures the animated series’ aesthetic.

    Sure, the more

    It's not quite in sync with the show in terms of vibes and voice, but it *is* in sync with the OG cartoon. It's a little insubstantial, but that's fine.
