Okay, simply because I was asked to, I’ll do capsule reviews of the Bishop miniseries from this era. Even though I was a hardcore completist, I didn’t purchase this mini when it was released because the $3 cover price was too high, and I was already having a hard time justifying buying all of the titles after most of the prices had increased fifty cents. Plus, there was also an over-priced Rogue miniseries being released around the same time, so I made the decision to save money for that one. This was the first time I was simply unable to afford every X-book being released in one month, which shows that Marvel was probably already losing touch with its younger readers.
Bantam and traveled back to this time months ago. Bantam asks Bishop for help now that Mountjoy is trying to kill him, because he’s the only one who knows where Mountjoy is. Pacheco draws a pretty energetic fight scene between Bishop, Storm, and Mountjoy, which ends with Mountjoy poisoning Bishop. This is one of the few times a villain has actually tried to get around Bishop’s energy-absorption powers, so at least Ostrander has put some thought into the action elements.
