A Primer for 2019’s New Mutants by Jonathan Hickman (#1-2, 5 & 7)
One of the best things about the current New Mutants series is that Rod Reis has been its semi-regular artist with 10 of 20 issues so far. Another is that this is the first ongoing title featuring the original New Mutants since 2012! Such a crime.
Unfortunately this fourth New Mutants series was hampered early on by the odd sequencing of its first two story arcs, one by Hickman, starring the original New Mutants, the other by Ed Brisson with art by Flaviano, spotlighting a motley crew led by the much later New Mutants addition Boom-Boom (better known from her X-Force days) and Armor from Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men.
