Yeah, I was hoping for something more substantial for my first ever post, but I seem to be having "the stupidity" over how to format a break...
( Let's see if this works...Legality Scan under the Cut! )
When we last left off, Sooraya and Cessily were fighting Belasco like the fierce ladies they are. Illyana was excising Megan's soul, and Noriko, Julian, and O*N*E are trying to figure out a way to save everyone from Limbo. (Also, mods, I have more than seven pages from each of two issues here, but they each had thirty pages of content including Endangered Species, where Beast is running around doing SCIENCE! to save the mutant population. I can try to cut it back down if that does not count.)
They find Amanda Sefton, who was in a coma and on the verge of death. Noriko shocks her back. Amanda says that "Belasco is coming for the children," and that they need to find Nightcrawler, who has the Soulsword. But he's in SPACE. "They're dead, then. The X-Men...the students...they're all dead."
"Shut up and get dressed. You're taking us to Limbo."
( Now. )
queenanthai asked to see the original Quest for Magik storyline. These scans are massive, so watch out for that. They will mess with your screen. The art in the prelude (first seven scans here) are crazy pretty, and I like that the students look and feel like teenage youth throughout this arc. (Some artists end up making them look like young adults or children.)
Some background: This arc comes after one where Cessily (Mercury) was kidnapped so that parts of her may be cut away to provide a skin for Predator X. Laura (X-23) and Julian (Hellion) went off on their own to save Cessily. Meanwhile, Noriko (Surge) was squad leader.
Continuing with our series covering the relationship arc of X-23 and Hellion in New X-Men. This time around, Laura becomes more a part of the group, just in time for them to face off with the much-mocked pink Sentinel from the future.
Lots of images, so not for dialup (man, people still use dialup?).
