…Darick Robertson, Wayne Faucher, Jimmy Palmiotti, Rodney Ramos, Scott Koblish, Matt Milla, Cory Petit, Rus Wooton and Greg Land,
Whew, that was quite a list–as it always is when I’m reviewing awesome trade paperbacks, and I’ve got a two-for-one deal here. Nightcrawler: The Devil Inside and its sequel Nightcrawler: The Winding Way collect an AWESOME series of issues. Mr. Aguirre-Sacasa, I’ve loved your writing since I read The Mystery Plays and Say You Love Satan while doing research for my Masters project (comics and theater–it was cool). You’ve always got this great mix of religious symbolism and demons and angels and stuff going on–which, of course, is ideal for a Nightcrawler book. And the art…wow. Kurt Wagner is the hottest blue fuzzy mutant out there, and you all capture him wonderfully. Especially when he’s coming out of the shower. Five stars for these two trades, hooray for the dogmatic side of X-Men.
