3.0 out of 5 stars meh. Nov. 17 2009
By J. Giermann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The original NYX series wasn't particularly well received. I suspect more than anything else, this was due to the fact that it resembled a character-driven indie comic over the action-packed superhero one it was expected to be. Personally, I really enjoyed NYX: Wannabe, & not just because Laura Kinney made a cameo. Despite the occasionally stilted dialog & somewhat abrupt ending, it had beautiful art, raw, genuine emotion, & characters that felt real & alive.

& here, years later, a second series following the little outcasted NYX troop has finally arrived... that isn't half as rewarding as the first installment.

The story opens with Kiden battered & chained to a table. As a strange voice speaks to her, Kiden recollects the events leading up to her enigmatic capture... It all started when Ms Palmer suddenly vanished. At her house they found sprays of blood & a photograph pinned to the wall by a box-cutter. But what would anybody want with Ms Palmer? If she's merely a lure for our main cast, what would anybody want from a handful of nobody street kids?

Something to make clear is that the only true characters of this arc are Kiden, Kiden's father, & Bobby. Ms Palmer & Tatiana are all but forgotten, like furniture in the background; the story expecting any empathy for them to be dragged over from the Wannabe series. Considering the complexity these characters carried in Wannabe, it's a vast disappointment that here they're left as thin as tissue paper.
& the villains... they aren't even given names. This isn't to grant them an ominous godliness---in fact they're just nobody kids themselves, albeit highly skilled. The author simply had no interest in them, & this is also vastly disappointing.

Something I did enjoy was the exploration of Kiden's father & his role as Kiden's protector, & it leaves one wondering: just what is he? A ghost? A manifestation of Kiden's mind? A mutant himself?
& even though poor Tatiana is nothing but a transparent fixture, Kiden & Bobby are given a fair dosage of emotional dissection.
We also discover more about the intense hallucinogenic powers held within the catatonic 'Lil Bro.'

By NYX: No Way Home's conclusion, the situation has been resolved for the moment but not permanently, & it's quite obvious we should expect a sequel.

The cover art is lovely & reminiscent of something Josh Middleton would do. The interior art is average. While the coloring is vivid & fresh, the line-work is only adequate. It isn't awful by any stretch, but there's considerable room for improvement.

2.5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good Feb. 27 2011
By MagikChipmunk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
NO way home was not as good as the first one (wannabe) But it was still a good read. I really enjoy the characters and the story line was amazing. You the only thing I didnt like out of it was that X-23 was not in it but other than that it is amazing, you get to learn more about the characters and how they survive when most of the world hates them and there are less than a thousand mutants left. This is a deap novel but I loved it.
