Kurzbeschreibung

1. Juli 2014 Amazing X-Men (Buch 1)
An amazing new era for the X-Men starts here, courtesy of superstar artist Ed McGuinness and master X-Writer Jason Aaron! Ever since Nightcrawler's death, the X-Men have been without their heart and soul. But after learning that their friend may not be gone after all, it's up to Wolverine, Storm, Beast, Iceman, Northstar and Firestar to find and bring back the fan-favorite fuzzy blue elf! But when the team finds themselves separated and split between heaven and hell, can they get to Nightcrawler's soul before his father, the evil Azazel, does? Pushed over the edge, the Beast gives into his savage side like never before, as Nightcrawler rallies the X-Men to take on Azazel and his hellish hordes! Can the X-Men save the afterlife, or must one of the team make the ultimate sacrifice?

3.0 von 5 Sternen Blue elf's back 5. Juli 2014
Von Sam Quixote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Beast decides to get rid of those drunken, annoying Bamfs from the grounds of the Jean Grey School once and for all but uncovers a strange hidden portal they’ve been protecting. He and a handful of X-Men are drawn through it with some ending up in heaven and some ending up in hell. And guess who they meet in Heaven? Well, the subtitle of the book is The Quest for Nightcrawler, so you know already: heeeeeeeeeeeere’s Kurt! But with his demonic dad, Azazel, threatening the afterlife, Kurt must make the ultimate choice: sacrifice his eternity for the sake of the world or let his evil father burn it all.

The first volume of Jason Aaron’s new X-Men series, Amazing X-Men (following the end of his acclaimed Wolverine and the X-Men run), is a very mixed bag – on the one hand, NIGHTCRAWLER’S BACK!!! And on the other, the rest of the X-Men get embroiled in a very bland adventure with elements from one of the most heinous X-Men books ever written, The Draco.

And split down the middle is exactly how I feel about the book – the Nightcrawler stuff is perfect, from his time in Heaven, to the reveal of who and what the bamfs are and why they’re in the Jean Grey School, to the delightful reunions between Kurt and the X-Men, all of whom are overjoyed at having him return (Logan genuinely smiles several times!). If that had been the whole book it really would be amazing.

But that’s not enough material for a book so Aaron throws in some arbitrary X-Men action that doesn’t matter and isn’t in the slightest bit interesting to read. Storm, Iceman and Firestar fight demons in hell – but Iceman’s melting!! Wolverine and Northstar battle Azazel’s fiends in heaven – but they’re freezing!! Beast fights pirates - !! It reads like exactly what it is: filler. The characters are given some tedious busywork while they wait for Nightcrawler to get around to them and they can exclaim surprise and have a nice moment with him. It really is Kurt’s book and everyone else’s inclusion feels unnecessary. Who would’ve guessed the X-Men as pirates (aboard the Warship Xavier!) would be so boring?

Ed McGuinness does a marvellous job with the art – his Nightcrawler is easily among the best depictions of the character and he makes him both dashing and agile all at once. His design is perfect and the large panel/one pagers where we get to see Kurt in all his glory are just plain awesome. And his Bamfs are hella cute – blue or red, looking for whiskey or no, they are so darling! If there aren’t any stuffed toy Bamfs around for sale, there damn well should be!

Jason Aaron is a fine writer who can’t help but do some really interesting things in his work even his superhero storytelling tends to vary in quality. That Kurt is a devout Catholic who has gone to heaven and returned is some great psychological material to explore, but what Aaron does to the character at the end is really interesting – the decision Kurt takes and what that means for his faith and worldview. And I can’t totally dislike a book that ends so perfectly with Logan and Kurt, arms around their shoulders, happily and drunkenly lurching into the dawn after a night of celebratory drinking.

It’s worth reading if you’re a Nightcrawler fan as he’s got nothing but great moments in this book but know that you’ll have to put up with some very dull scenes involving the other X-Men to get to them. A halfway-amazing X-Men book, the heart-warming takeaway is that Kurt Wagner’s back in the Marvel Universe. Wunderschon!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Demons and Pirates and Elves, OH MY! 3. Juli 2014
Von Justin Pullen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When the X-Men split into two teams led separately by Cyclops and Wolverine, it was my jumping on point to read the main books starring each side. Unlike Cyclops' "Uncanny X-Men", I was consistently entertained reading "Wolverine and the X-Men". While "Uncanny" was hit and miss with story that ranged from okay to boring, the school setting of Wolverine's team, with both the faculty and students, brought about a lot of fun. While I can usually handle serious storylines, "Wolverine and the X-Men" brought back an old school feeling in a way. It was set in a school and we got to see how the future of the team was being groomed by veteran characters, many of whom were fan favorites like Beast, Iceman, and Kitty Pryde. "Uncanny", while serious, just didn't hold my interest. But honestly, I have to give credit to my allegiance to Team Wolverine to the book's writer, Jason Aaron. So when I found out that his run on the title was ending and a new creative team would be taking over, I was a little lost. But at the same time, Aaron had already launched another X-Men book starting Wolverine's team, "Amazing X-Men." So I figured if I was going to add a new X-book to my reading habits, it would be by someone I know I would enjoy. I also decided to trade-wait for the new series, partly because it would save me money on my monthly pulllist. So without further ado, let's jump right in.

The first issue does a good job of setting up the tone of the series. After a prologue of Nightcrawler in heaven, we are introduced to Firestar, who many would recognize from the "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends" cartoon, as she is joining the Jean Grey School's academy. As she enters the school, she's introduced to many aspects of the school that were testaments to Aaron's other book, such as surprise Danger Room exams, surprised by the kinds of students there are, the busy life of the faculty that include conversations you would never expect at a normal school, and of course, the little BAMFS, which are basically chibi versions of Nightcrawler, who have a taste for both chaos and whiskey, which they constantly steal from Wolverine. Through Firestar's introduction, new readers get an idea of what they're in for with this book. Not only that, but there seems to be a hint at a potential relationship between her and Iceman. Considering they were co-stars on the Spider-Man cartoon, it's a nice nod. Besides that, after Kitty selfishly left Wolverine's team to join Cyclops', Firestar would be a good fit for Bobby.

Of course as the title points out, Nightcrawler is the main focus of the book's first story. Years earlier, Nightcrawler had been killed during the "Second Coming" story arc, and has since resided in Heaven. At some point, Nightcrawler's father, Azazel, the demon many people would recognize from his appearance in the "X-Men: First Class" film, attacks Heaven, as part of a plan to steal souls and take over both Heaven and Hell, and even recruited evil souls hinted to be Billy the Kid and Jack the Ripper. To help stop his father, Nightcrawler is able to use recruit his former teammates and bring them to the afterlife, and leads them as only he could.

A good way this book has been described is that it's more about the characters than anything. I believe that holds up true with this story, as it shows how important Nightcrawler was to his teammates, including flashbacks of his interactions with Wolverine, Beast, and Storm. These moments were nice breaks in the action and help give you an investment in the characters, showing you that they're a real family, and not just superheroes.

Unlike a lot of reviews I do, this isn't really one of those big events that requires a spoiler-heavy analysis or makes you ponder what will happen next. Aside from Nightcrawler coming back to life (be honest, you know that's not a real spoiler; they promoted the start of the book that he returns), nothing really happens that shocks the foundation. It's just good old fashioned fun with the X-Men being heroes and fighting bad guys. It's what you'd want and expect from a comic book.

This story is bittersweet, however, because just as Jason Aaron gets things started, he would end up leaving the book after the first arc to work on other projects. Past X-writers Chris Yost and Craig Kyle would take over writing duties. Now, with Aaron gone, will I drop it like I did "Wolverine and the X-Men"? I'm actually going to stick around. When it comes to Jason LaTour, the new "Wolverine and the X-Men" writer, I was unfamiliar with his work, which made me hesitant to re-add the title. With Yost and Craig on the other hand, while I am only slightly familiar with Craig, I enjoy many things that Chris Yost has done. In addition to writing comic series like "Scarlet Spider", he has also worked on Marvel animated series like "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" as well as the script for "Thor: The Dark World." So while I haven't read their previous X-works, I have confidence that Yost and Craig will continue to deliver a fun X-Men book to enjoy.

Along with good character interaction and an overall sense of fun, I would also highly recommend the inaugural collection of this new series to Nightcrawler fans. Even without the blue elf, amongst all the comics with an "X" in the title, this is the X-Men book to be reading if you want some excitement and to see superheroes being superheroes.

STORY RATING: 8/10
RECOMMENDATION RATING 9/10

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bamf! 3. Juli 2014
Von Ronault D. Trowbridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Well the revolving door of comic book death swings open, to release yet another character, and yet I can't complain. Nightcrawler had one of the most noble, tear inducing demises in comic history, and his return doesn't ruin or cheapen the classic Second Coming storyline at all. In fact his return is just as epic and heart felt, the flashback & reunion scenes with; Beast, Storm & Wolverine especially had me shedding some tears. Jason Aaron & Ed McGuinness have returned a sense of fun to the X-Men not seen since the early Claremont, Cockrum & Bryne days. Great start to a hopefully great series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If you are a fan of Nightcrawler and/or Ed McGuinness, you shouldn't have to read this review to buy the thing... 8. Juli 2014
Von S. Robert Katz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is probably a 3.5 star book, but I'm rounding up this time. Guess I'm feeling generous.

The Good: First and foremost, Nightcrawler is back. It was a dumb idea to kill him off, and I've got some issues with the mechanics they used to bring him back (see: "The Bad"), but the important thing is that he's back in circulation. He's my favorite X-Man, one of my favorite characters in comics, and as pointless as his death was, at least it's over now. Also notable is the terrific art by Ed McGuinness. His stuff is pretty much always top notch, and there's plenty of material here for him to run wild. There's no doubt I'd buy this book regularly if he stuck around, but it looks like he's gone (along with the writer) shortly after this volume. Also, in the spirit of generosity, I'll add to this category the fact that this is a good old-fashioned X-Men adventure, a rare breed in this day and age. I'm not sure I can tell you the last time we saw a story where a classic (relatively, at least) team of X-Men went on a by-the-numbers, self-contained romp. It never seems to happen anymore, and it's sorely missed. Ongoing plot threads have their purposes, and there's value in different kinds of stories featuring unusual sets of characters, but there should always be a place for a coherently-written, beautifully-illustrated chunk of dumb fun.

The Bad: Emphasis on the "dumb." There really isn't much to this story. Nightcrawler is in Heaven, a silly plot device pops up that allows the X-Men to go find him, and after a few procedural events they bring him back home. There just isn't much to it. A few eye-rolling moments, a rather silly premise, and not much to write home about filling the pages. The villain here is Azazel (star of one of the worst X-Men stories of all time, one of the few times I've been chased away from the books), but he's actually been somewhat rehabilitated as a demon pirate trying to pillage heaven. It's a surprisingly pallatable take on a ridiculous character, but I'd rather he just be written out of existence entirely. Making Nightcrawler's dad an actual demon is the kind of bland, uncreative garbage that erodes the character's nuance and makes him less special. I'd rather it just be forgotten. Speaking of which, there's a strange dichotomy here where we're treated to a classic, joyous, swashbuckling Nightcrawler for the first time in WAY too long (Nightcrawler is at his best when he's the fun, bouncy heart and soul of the team, but the character had been weighed down by angst and a suffocating overemphasis on his Christianity for many years leading up to his death). At first blush, it felt like a real statement. The old blue elf was back. But before the story is done, there's a disappointing reveal. I wouldn't spoil a major plot point in a review unless it was complete rubbish, but SPOILERS AHEAD: It's complete rubbish, and SPOILERS AHEAD: Nightcrawler sold his soul for the chance to get his body back. Ah, more angsty Nightcrawler. Just what nobody demanded. So naturally the final chapter of this book is chock full of soulless, angsty rubbish. Really wish they'd just let that bit go. In most cases, the simpler the better, which is one reason I absolutely hate it when they kill comic book characters. These deaths rarely have any emotional impact at all, because nobody expects them to stick, and then the character almost inevitably comes back to life with the bogus, unnecessary baggage of having died. It's stupid. It would be much "cleaner" to just come up with some silly explanation for Nightcrawler to return rather than saddling him with this unnecessary and burdensome baggage. Let's hope this subplot just quietly goes away.

All-in-all, an imperfect but above average installment compared to what's been happening in the X-Men books lately. It's remarkable only for what's on the label. To wit: Nightcrawler is back (and has quite a lot of fun before the angst sets in), Ed McGuinness illustrates the heck out of it (which is never a bad thing), and Jason Aaron knows how to write a coherent (if unspectacular) comic book. Everything else I could take or leave, but the overall package is unlikely to disappoint if you know what to expect.
