    2020 Machine Man #1

    Enjoyed the writing of the main story, but the art was current Marvel standard. Back-up story was completely pointless.

      The backup story is basically 'hey remember this thing from the original Machine Man 2020?'

    I honestly have no memory of what happened between Shaw and Kate to lead to this issue. When did that happen? #6? The ramifications were very well done in this issue. But at the same time felt awfully disingenuous what with the "No more death" plot (which is why it's a VERY stupid aspect of Krakoa).

    A very good single issue if you look at it in a bubble though.

      I remember the set-up. I just don't remember the act. Weird. I'll flip through #6 when I file this one away.

    This is some of the most self-indulgent writing I've read in years. Why is Sunspot acting like Deadpool with the 4th wall breaking? There is hardly a story in this issue and what little there is doesn't make sense half the time - why does Wolfsbane keep licking orbs? And I'm guessing Hickman finds himself hysterical.

      I read the original series shortly before getting into buying comics myself. The library had the original trade paperback and I still remember poring over those pages. It was the most profound (and longest!) comic book story I had read to that point.

      I've always been hesitant to revisit so as not to sully those teenage memories, in the event that the story's not as good as I remember. But the discourse around this new series has me reevaluating that idea...

    This just didn't do anything for me.
