    One thought on “X-Women”

    1. This was, without a doubt, one of the worst comics I have ever read. And I have read NFL Superpro. I should note that this review is for the Claremont/Manara story. The X-23 one was meh, the Dazzler one was pretty good, and I liked the Cloak and Dagger story. If the actual X-Women comic had been just a little bit less awful, I would've given this book 2 stars, just for the other three stories.But nope, 1 star. Every single thing about the X-Women comic is terrible. The writing is almost a parody [...]

    2. The cover says Claremont/Manara, but in fact they only contribute one of the four one-shots collected here. Which isexactly what you'd expect. Nobody is going to hire Milo Manara, and then ask him to draw Colossus and Cable twatting giant robots. So some of the female X-Men have a beach holiday, then end up in the jungle, getting tied up and bending over a lot along the way. This is far from Manara's best work, but it is still beautiful, and a lot less grubby than such material comes across in t [...]

    3. I don't get why people complain about Milo Manara drawing sexy scenes. It's kind of like being annoyed at Stephen King for writing a horror story. It's what he DOES.So yes, the first story has some pictures of female X-Men drawn in a sexy way. If that bothers you, I suggest not reading this one. Just a thought.That to one side, this is a decent collection of X-stories. None of them were amazingly great, but none were bad. The first is a collection of the ladies: Kitty, Storm, Rachel, Rogue, Psyl [...]

    4. Let's be brutally honest here, based on the cover art, did you really expect to find a graphic novel where the female super heroes were going to get a gritty storyline and ahem, did NOT exploit their um female assets? Cause I could go on about how the illustrator seems to be obsessed with portraying each of the character's sexiness by making them wear bikinis, mini skirts and a white ruffled blouse with a plunging neckline. Note: no woman needs to wear a white ruffled blouse with a plunging neck [...]

    5. I was excited to read this, but the women are being super sexualized in the first one. Really disappointing, and it spoiled the rest for me

    6. Wow. This is bad. Really, really bad.I picked up with a very naive thought: "It's time to read something a bit different, possibly with stronger women and a new perspective on things." Yeah, right.The art is extremely, incredibly, gratuitously sexist in every single page. The X-Women are using strippers' clothes in the middle of a mysterious Indonesian island, we get to see a useless flashback of them enjoying some earlier vacations in Greece and, as you guessed, they are barely dressed there to [...]

    7. The art was VERY oversexualized and a bit offensive at times. One woman runs around with a wide bet for bottoms and nothing else, while her husband literally chases after Storm. The wife is mad at Storm instead of him. Poor Storm! The story was pretty stupid to book and at times offensive. I was really looking forward to seeing the ladies of the X-Men in action together. This was a disappointing story full of cliches for female characters in a group together. Don't waist your time with this one. [...]

    8. Me esperaba bastante más.Los dibujos están Manara, alguna postura un poco forzada como si dibujara manara. Narrativa visual decente y en general sin sustos. Es Manara.El guión es un tanto cliché 007. Incluso hay algún momento en el que pierden los poderes para hacer más manejable la historia pero sin que haya ni mucha tensión ni nada especial. Me imagino que al gusto americano. Hubiera estado bien algo más de profundidad en las tramas o en la ambientación. Pero siendo cómic americano y [...]

    9. So the front cover put me off - what is it with the women and their mouths open like that?Why the body hugging costumes? Okay sex sells, but you're selling a market short if you keep this up. (There are women reading these comics and maybe some of them are like me and are over the soft porn like attributes the female superheroes are being portrayed with).X23 stood out - strong character, well told story. The other two in this collection left me cold.

    10. Pretty easy read. Out of all of the stories, the Cloak and Dagger story was the best. Loved Mark Brooks' art in this one. He draws an awesome Dagger. The X-Women story was okay. They sure dress pretty skimpy in this issue. Also, not sure why their mouths were pretty much open in all of the shots. The X-23 and Dazzler had to be my least favorite. Good to see Kiden once in a while. Guess this was before Messiah Complex. But then again X-Force did travel in future.

    11. This book combines 4 marvel number 1 issues with female leads. The first story is a stand alone story about the X-women beautifully drawn by Manara. The other three are number ones in a series about X23, Dazler and Cloak & dagger. All of them are nice stories that make you curious about those characters. A nice read;

    12. I shouldn't have read this, based on the cover alone. Why did I read this? With the exception of Marjorie Liu's X-23 story, basically every person involved with writing and doing the art of all these stories was a guy. The X-Women #1 storyline was especially appalling. Much sexism, much boring.

    13. Está dividido em 4 partes, sendo que a primeira, de Manara e Claremont é muito boa pela arte. A história é sofrível.As outras três partes não são nada de mais e parece que andaram a encher chouriços para fazer um volume de capa dura.

    14. Well this confirms it for me, Milo Manara's art is just icky. His version of erotic and my version of 'sexually exploitative' seem to be the same. Most of the stories in here were terrible, except Cloak and Dagger.

    15. The stories are fine. Milo Manara is unintentionally hilarious. He's really just a porn illustrator so the cover of this book alone is hilarious. All the women have these open mouthed expressions which are supposed to be sensual but they all look like they're having an asthma attack.
