  -Smith's art is quite modern looking--makes me forget this is still '83.

  4 stars for nice artwork + unique Angel story + decent Caliban side-story. Only thing I'm not a fan of is Kitty's outfit.

  Nice art work, but what the heck is Tessa wearing? Is that her regular attire? Seems out of place.

I like the idea of the Morlocks. Looking forward to seeing more development of them and their society.

  Morlocks!!!! And damn, the art is way ahead of its time. Why don't I remember Caliban's first appearance or association with Kitty?

  Caliban was the weird, lonely, mutant hobo creeper trying to grope Kitty when the X-Ladies all went out for a nifht on the town.

  OK, so, in a single issue, we have an explicit reference to H.G. Wells' Time Machine, a pretty obvious echo of Hunchback of Notre Dame, bathtub sex between a witch and a demon, and two X-Men as victims of sex trafficking/sexual battery (Angel presently and Storm in her youth).

This is the most all-around "adult" comic in the order so far, certainly of the color ones.

  Not to mention Caliban apparentally undressing Kitty while she's passed out...

  Curious to see the explanation for the psychic intereference in the sewer as well as What happened to Emma Frost...
