Next up from my 50-cent comics haul from MegaCon earlier this year is New Mutants #39 (volume 3 from circa 2011-2012). The original run of the New Mutants was one of my favorite comics back in the day. So far, I’ve been enjoying the scattered issues of volume 3 that I have been reading lately too.
In this issue, members of the team are visiting the island Paradise, the island where Doug Ramsey, a.k.a. Cypher, died. This visit is because of some dream he had. They run across various creatures created by Ani-mator and apparently Ani-mator is trying to reconstitute himself via some sort of virus. Unfortunately, the New Mutants contract this virus.
By the end, everyone is pretty sick and Warlock combines with Cypher in an effort to save him. Will this be enough? Will they find a cure? Can they defeat Ani-mator? I’m not sure, I don’t think I have the next issue :).
