New Mutants No. 10

Published by Marvel Comics. Written by Zeb Wells. Art by Paul Davidson, David Lopez and Alvaro Lopez.

The Deal: Fresh from the "Necrosha" crossover with X-Force, things with the New Mutants get back to normal ... well as normal as they cane be.

The Verdict: This issue wasn't as strong as other issues, but it was still enjoyable. The big event of the month was that Cyclops revealed why he even has a team of "New Mutants" ... turns out it's fairly valid. Honestly, I think the whole "Necrosha" arc threw this book off way too early in its run. But I guess it brought Doug "Cypher" Ramsey back so we should be happy, eh? What's really needed right now in this book is to establish a unique set of supporting characters, locales, villains and such; it sort of feels like an X-Men Jr. title, not a comic about characters with decades of continuity. All of that said, it's a decent issue but the world won't end if you skip it.
