"THE LAND OF THE SKULL" The X-Men and the FF team up when strange happenings in the Bermuda Triangle threaten the Marvel Universe. Yes, you've seen the X-Men and the FF interact before, but never with Magneto and Dr. Doom on the side of the angels. Don't miss this landmark team-up with an adventure that you have to see to believe.

    I have to say, I haven't read a whole lot of Victor Gischler's work, mainly because he's still rather new to the world of comic books, but from what I have read, the man is a master of dialogue and storytelling. In this one issue he managed to take characters I don't like(Lord Summers and Emma), characters I don't care about(Pixie), characters in the wrong role(Doom and Magneto), and incredibly obscure characters(Lee Forrester and Skull the Slayer) and made it all work perfectly together. Seriously, if you would have listed the characters appearing in this issue, and the roles they'd be serving in, I'd have wanted to skip reading this one. But I'll be damned if it didn't all come together perfectly. So yeah, even with bizarre characters in bizarre situations, I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue... Go figure!

    Overall, a great first rendition of both teams. Now we need to get some more actual writing into the book and some more action and I'll be back on board. So far, I'm not completely happy with this arc. Read Full Review

    If you enjoy fun-ish team-ups or guest-starring situations involving the X-Men and/or Fantastic Four/Future Foundation characters, you'll probably find this to be pretty enjoyable aside from that annoying $3.99 price point. The issue may also be enjoyable for dealing with the current teams without the encumbrance of the Fear Itself event going on at present. Finally, this issue's cover would make a great poster.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Aug 25, 2011

    This is an interesting start to a pure adventure story, with great art, but limited emotional investment. Spend your dollars accordingly. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Aug 24, 2011

    You could do far worse by closing your eyes and picking at random from your local comic shop's shelves, but this book probably won't make anyone's "Top 25 Comics of 2011" list any time soon. Fans of this series are likely to find this issue entertaining enough, but it may be a bit too vanilla for casual readers. Read Full Review
