Last issue took place at an Alicia Masters art opening, and this three-issue arc involves some super-powered performance artists called the Avant-Guard who blanket New York in a freak snowstorm.
One of them, The Painter, has had a few appearances in places other than this arc.
He’s a flesh sack full of cockroaches. Don’t ask.
Anyway, about that snowstorm…A bunch of other heroes from Avengers, X-Men and New Warriors help New Yorkers manage the weather, which enables this…
…All three characters from Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, together. Nice. I wonder if some of these scenes were off the cutting-room floor from the Casket of Winters event? To balance out that cool appearance, there’s Speedball.
But also the other New Warriors…
Also, Superman and Lois Lane. And Spider-Man seems to take a nutshot.
It’s a reasonably fun issue with lots of guest stars—has a very 1980s feel, which is nice given how the rest of Marvel’s books are getting pretty dark, pretty fast.
