To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The Kindle version of “Inferno” is a mess. There is no navigation and the various issues are often out of order for the plot. Frankly, many of the comics here simply don’t hold up well after more than 25 years. The art doesn’t fit well for a collected story. There are some fine moments from the writers with Chris Claremont handling “X-Men” and Louise Simsonson pulling the strings on “X-Factor.” But there are some major problems as well, including the idiotic “X-Terminators” series by Simonson featuring some of the children associated with X-Factor including a kid with a high-tech wheelchair with rockets. Seriously. There are some fine moments here and some excellent fights. The main “X-Men” and “X-Factor” comics are great but the others, including a few “New Mutants” issues, are not up to that standard. There are a lot of important X-Men moments here but the parts are far greater than the whole.
One of the reasons I purchased THIS collection was to read the EXCALIBUR stories connected to the INFERNO STORYLINE! I was so disappointed that NONE of those stories were INCLUDED in this collection! Way too many POWER PACK stories used as FILLER! And those HORRIBLY drawn X-FACTOR stories just KILLED it for me.I took this collection on vacation and read it during the 10 hour flight to HONOLULU from JFK two weeks ago.The fact that the EXCALIBUR stories were 'excluded' made this a waste of a purchase.
