Frankenstein" brings the X-Men's circus adventure to a close. The
story succeeds in capturing the essence of Chris Claremont's
"Kitty's Fairy Tale," published way back in Uncanny X-Men #153; with
the evident difference that this time the quirky situation actually
happened to the characters and it wasn't just a product of Ms.
Pryde's vivid imagination.
One would think that
deranged murderous clowns are a sure thing -just ask DC about it-
but I guess the concept doesnt translate that well when applied to
Wolverine and company. Between the juvenile villains from the
Hellfire Club, the whole circus thing, and the headache-inducing
character making his return in the final page, this latest arc is a
pretty-to-look-at-meh-fest; the pretty part is thanks to Nick
Bradshaw and Laura Martin's clean and colorful art.
