2099 all over again

Caveat, I am a rabid Marvel 2099 fan, I hated Kirkman's attempt to touch the 2099 universe, I hated the 2009 Time Storm crap, and I enjoyed Claremont's use of Miguel in Exiles but it just wasn't the same. Finally! I've enjoyed a little 2099 again in the Superior Spider-Man run.

Reviews of Old Comics: Sensational She-Hulk #5

Sensational She-Hulk #5 September 1989 Sitting on my computer desktop are two pages from an early issue of Sensational She-Hulk #5. I I briefly touched on them in my review for the issue where she joined the Fantastic Four. SYNOPSIS: She-Hulk is relaxing at home on a Saturday morning after a jog around Central Park. She turns on cartoons to find them changing into realistic displays on traditional cartoon violence and interactions. One click actually transports her into a prehistoric jungle where she rescues a young boy from a Tyrannosaur. The little boy relates that his situation is similar to hers and they deduce that they are in a realistic depiction of the prehistoric cartoon "The Stonesteins." She-Hulk still has her remote control so she presses the button to change the channel and the pair find themselves in a sci-fi setting. Observed by a duck-like assistant to the villainous Doctor Bong who is using a device called an "Educational Recalibration Field." Doctor Bong is determined to locate the source of the disruption and begins scanning for She-Hulk.

Reviews of Old Comics: New Mutants #18

New Mutants #18 August 1984 New Mutants #18 was the beginning of a new artist on the Mutant books, Bill Sienkiewicz, who had made a mark on Moon Knight and a few other books. This was a real turn, as Marvel's style was far from artsy, and the comics industry was still recovering from the heavy influence of Neal Adams. Sienkiewicz had developed a style that was based on Illustration and it showed in page layouts that, looking back, set the stage for the modern age manner of irregular panel shapes, overlapping images, and borderless panels. I remember as a twelve-thirteen year-old young artist being blown away by this new style to my comics, and was instantly drawn to it. For Christmas of 1984, I actually copied a panel from this comic and used mixed media to make a Christmas present. SYNOPSIS: We open on New Mutant team leader Dani Moonstar having a terrible nightmare of the Demon Bear that killed her parents. We then see the X-Mansion under attack by the military as a young, red-haired girl uses her powers to shield herself as she makes her way to Professor X trying to reason with the troops telepathically only to be killed. It's revealed that these are the memories of a young woman from the future, the girl from the before, just older, and looking much more ragged. The New Mutants, except Dani and Illyana Rasputin training in the Danger Room, and proving successful, even with some difficulty. Illyana answers the front door to find the red-haired young woman who runs off in tears since she remembers seeing Illyana die.
