GUEST-STARRING THE FF! The X-Men and the FF have gone through a portal in the Bermuda Triangle and are stuck in a strange land complete with Dinosaurs, Mayan Temples
and strange snake people! It’s up to Reed Richards and Dr. Nemesis to get our crew back home, which isn’t the problem
as they are two of the biggest brains in the Marvel U. The 
problem is that a portal to our world is exactly what the evil forces of this land want!

    Jorge Molina’s art is wonderful as well. You can tell he loves the idea that Lee Forrester, Sue Richards and Emma Frost are in this and he draws them accordingly. When three of the hotties of the comic world come together, you need somebody who can draw the female form, something Molina excels at. He’s also good with action and movement. One single panel of Wolverine and Thing battling cave men like aliens had more action than a lot of entire books. Molina, like Gischler, wants each panel to say something and reduces filler across the board. X-Men #17 is one of those perfect storms when a particular style of writing and of art mesh perfectly. I only wish more of the X-Men books were this good. Read Full Review

    While the plot does seem all too familiar, Gischler makes it an entertaining romp by putting conflicting characters together and turning up the danger to see how they will react. Likewise, Molina takes little risk with the art, but turns in some solid designs, especially the nasty goblin-esque leader with a tree-like arm. This title has always done a great job of telling continuity-light stories that deal with new conflicts and villains, so it would benefit from having the writer and artist stepping up to make an equally refreshing comic book.
