Amazing X-Men #2

Writer: Jason Aaron
Penciler: Ed McGuinness
Inker: Dexter Vines
Price:  $3.99

Amazing X-Men #2 picks up as Part Two to the "The Hunt For Nightcrawler" storyline.  The fan favorite character died and was given the peace in heaven that he was so deserving.  His father, Azazel, with his band of demon pirates and little demons called Bamfs, went on a search for him.  Nightcrawler is still remianing scarce and his fathers demons are unable to find him.  The X-Men, while still on earth, stumbled upon a portal that the Bamfs were building at the school to transport to and from different realms.  This portal sucked the X-Men (Wolverine, Storm, Iceman, Northstar, and Firestar) in and seperated them.  Their adventure led Wolverine and Northstar into heaven and Storm, Iceman, and Firestar to hell.

Both teams were attacked by groups of Azazel's demon pirates.  The group in hell were at a vast disadvantage.  There is no wind in hell so Storm's powers cannot work, and is there any worse place for a man made of ice to be stuck.  Meanwhile in heaven, Wolvie and Northstar get assistance from a person that is not expected (Quite a surprise).

The artwork was top notch, but some of the inks were a little heavy in places.  The writing also was very well done, and I am interested to see where the story goes.  Unfortunately, in this age of writing for the trade paperback, where all stories end up being 5 or 6 issues, it looses the anticipation of how things are going to resolve.  All in all, fans of Nightcrawler will definitely want to see what happens to their favorite character.
