Wolverine and the X-Men #23

Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Nick Bradshaw

The Last Frankenstein brings the X-Men's circus adventure to a close. The story succeeds in capturing the essence of Chris Claremont's Kitty's Fairy Tale, published way back in Uncanny X-Men #153; with the evident difference that this time the quirky situation actually happens to the characters and it is not just a product of Ms. Pryde's vivid imagination. One would think that deranged murderous clowns are a sure thing -just ask DC about it- but I guess the concept doesnt translate that well when applied to Wolverine and company. Between the juvenile villains from the Hellfire Club, the whole circus thing, and the headache-inducing character making his return in the final page, this latest arc is a pretty-to-look-at-meh-fest; the pretty part is thanks to Nick Bradshaw and Laura Martin's clean and colorful art.
