Uncanny X-Men annual #8
Issue(s): Uncanny X-Men annual #8
It's storytelling time again.
I honestly kinda just skimmed the issue.
Illyana's story was designed to get her brother and her best friend talking again.
Leialoha's art is more stylized than usual. Very angular in the story sequences and a bit of a Sienkiewicz vibe in the "real" portions. I like it.
Possible suggestion of an inter-species attraction between Kitty and Lockheed!
I kind of want my comics to "count" so i'm not big on these story issues. As a one-time think, Kitty's fairy tale in Uncanny X-Men #153 was cool, but there was no need for a repeat performance.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: Storm is still with the X-Men. Since Wolverine is with the team but Xavier is uninjured, this probably takes place during Uncanny X-Men #192 before that "some months later" gap at the end.
Continuity Implant? N

Trina Robbins(cited in the footnote) had been a major player in undergound/independent comics for almost 20 years by that point, though I don't think she'd actually written or drawn anything in the mainstream Marvel universe yet.
