Inferno #1 (Secret Wars)

Veering off from the original story, things didn’t end in quite the same way. The demons actually won and Illyana Rasputin has been a prisoner of theirs for four years. Where Dennis Hopeless brings us in is a group of X-Men, consisting of Colossus, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Boom-Boom, Nightcrawler, Beast, and Psylocke are making their yearly attempt to try to rescue Illyana. There’s something about seeing the X-Men on a more focused mission like this. You can feel there is more at stake and seeing a determined Colossus able to let go against the demons after trying to contain his anger throughout the year. And, as you would hope or expect, there are casualties. If the stakes are indeed higher than normal and this has been going on for four years, it shouldn’t be a walk in the park for them.
Javier Garron does a good job capturing the despair of the transformed Manhattan. While I didn’t really care for the design of the demon N’astirh, he and the others look as they were originally designed. In all I would rate this issue an 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.
