By John Byrne, Chris Claremont & Jerry Ordway (DC Comics)
The X-Men team supreme were reunited for this supernatural adventure featuring the ‘world’s greatest superhero’ team. Comic fans love these sorts of stunts.
Sadly the results seldom live up to expectations and the result is a competent if predictable heroes versus vampires yarn most notable as a prequel and introduction to Byrne’s latest attempt to revive his childhood by reinventing the Doom Patrol.
Not for the casual bystander and no way to broaden the appeal or range of the comic experience.
