Of Angels and Devils! - james meeley
The Angel tale has a nice bit of heart to it, especially in the end, but it is so heavy-handed in its approach and hammers you over the head so much with its meaning, that it actually lessens its impact both emotionally and storywise. Mazzucchelli's art is nice and fit fairly well with the theme, but Nocenti's script just gives too little room to breath and feels more like a sermon than an object lesson. The Storm story, however, was a different kettle of fish. Taking place between Uncanny X-Men #184 and 185, Claremont reminds you of why his X-Men work was so often beloved. Lots of great character interaction between Storm and Mystique here. Like a verbal game of chess. And Craig Hamilton's lush artistry only makes it better. He brings a real graceful feeling to Storm, especially while she's in flight. This tale was the highlight of the issue, no question.
