Amazing X-Men #7
I picked this up because I’m old and nostalgic. Like a lot of people my age, the old cartoon Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends was my gateway into the world of comics.
Only thing was, this cartoon was nothing at all like the comics. But once you get past the fact that Spider-Man doesn’t really hangout with his “Amazing Friends” and doesn’t have supercomputers under his furniture, it was easy to adjust to the comics. Still, seeing Firestar, Iceman & Spider-Man on the cover of this issue was enough to make me buy it.
It’s too bad they don’t do a miniseries with these three characters. I imagine it would sell quite well.
I liked this issue enough to subscribe to the series for a little while…that and the promise if Alpha Flight in the upcoming months. I do love me some Alpha Flight!
