Onomatopoeia reviewed Marauders #3 Jun 30, 2022

I love a good X-Men space opera as much as the next 90s kid, but this may be a bit too heavy for me. The deep references are fun, but I know a lot of them are going over my head. Personally, I love the art, but the story is getting somewhat hard to follow.

Panic in Shi'ar space! The Marauders are prisoners of the Kin Crimson, a secret society stretching back billions of years, who outrank even the Shi'ar Majestrix...or so they think. But Captain Pryde and the Marauders aren't giving up, not with the Shi'ar holding the last survivors of mutantkind's first generation hos...

I'm enjoying Orlando's dense writing on this more than I have on his work for DC because I actually get most of his obscure continuity references (and have Paul O'Brien's annotations on House To Astonish to fill me in on the rest). It's still a slow read but I'm learning to appreciate that. I wish the art were clearer in some places, but Carlini's Cassandra Nova really shines.

An absolute banger of an issue. I love the way Ewing is integrating Arakko and it's culture into the larger Marvel universe in a way that no other writer has managed yet. The chess match between Brand and Storm is extremely well written, as were the conflicts at the Circle Perilous. From Roberto's play in the stands to the way in which Magneto deals with Tarn, it was all just perfectly clever.

I can't remember the last time a comic made me audibly gasp, but that Isca twist... so good. Ewing is really in his element with this one; the politics, the (literal) world-building, and the character development are top tier. Three issues in, and I can't wait to see where this goes.

First half of the book was ACAB propaganda with a nice touch of "the white man is the root of all my problems" Victimhood.

The second half of the book was actually pretty great with some nice, touching character beats with Warpath meeting his grandma for the first time since he was just a baby.

I've never liked the concept of "The Pit." It seems like an overly cruel form of punishment in a promised utopia. I'm glad to see the uglier side of Krakoa being exposed, but it does seem heavy handed at times, e.g. Melter. I'm hoping by the end of this, rehabilitation will be the goal rather than torture.
