Uncanny X-Men: Winter's End #1 Review
So, while packing up my stuff as the family prepares for an upcoming move, I came across my collection of graphic novels. I meant to read through them again and use this blog to actually post comic reviews, too. Those will come soon. For now, let's look at a recent one-shot.
Winter's End is a spotlight feature for Iceman. It's his birthday so, of course, drama is guaranteed. Ice Master, his future self, comes to warn Bobby of a mistake he makes that will threaten everything. There is a lot going on in this issue, but even if you haven't read a comic in years there is still enough to grab onto that you will enjoy the read.
My biggest issue with this release was how easily the dispute was settled, and the pacing in general was a bit rushed. That said, I liked some of the humor and the drama sections were decent.
If you are a fan of Iceman, this one is likely required reading. For everyone else, you can consider picking it up but don't worry if you miss it.
