  1. How could Matthew forget about The Great Ten and say they haven’t appeared in that book, when they have been central to two different arcs in New Super-Man. They were literally fighting side by side with the Justice League of China during the Suicide Squad crossover. Tsk, tsk.

  2. Bill the Seeker on

    Like Matthew I was reading The New Mutants from the beginning. I stuck with the book for a couple years after the artist change but never did really like the art style for most storytelling. Some of the images are great but overall too ‘muddy’ for my taste..
