    1. This story may appear dated because of the art with the backgrounds, the costume design and the lead has a mullet. The art is unabashedly Eighties, but the issues it commented on, like how energy companies spend millions only to squeeze their customers in their bills, right wing survivalists, and how entertainment media exploits the innocent and unwary and capture the purses of their audience seems timely today. These issues never died, they lie low and come back when it is a slow news day. The [...]


    2. I read this collection for one reason, and it wasn't because of the X-Men title, nor was it because I'm a fan of Longshot (who is?), nor was it even for the great artwork by a young Art Adams. No, I read this because I have a morbid fascination with Ann Nocenti's utterly bizarre use of dialogue. All the way up to her current work at DC Comics, Nocenti's dialogue defies any sense of realism, and if I thought it was purposely written in a surreal fashion, then it'd be brilliantly weird. As it is, [...]


    3. This could have been a really good miniseries, and, as it stands, it's quite solid, but it is hampered by a few things. First, Longshot himself and particularly Mojo are vastly more interesting than they become later in the X-Men universe itself. Longshot's luck powers are more interesting, and have far greater repercussions. Mojo is one of those scary-insane type villains, instead of the humorous putz he will become later. I was particularly disappointed in this, because Mojo here is so interes [...]


    4. The mulleted one's first story. It sounds like the book is an Arthur Adams creation and they brought in Ann Nocenti to give it some dialogue. Arthur Adams art is strong here. He seems to have had a hand in shaping the upcoming emergence of Silvestri, and I think I can see Liefield pulling from his art. Don't let that last comment dissuade you from him though. It should be noted this is a very 80s looking book. The dialogue is a funny thing here. Claremont trademarked Longshot's awkward alien dia [...]


    5. Was pleasantly surprised with this, I have a soft spot for the art work of this time but the story and script was far more mature than I expected and enjoyed it more for it.


    6. Saya terus terang terseksa membaca buku ini. Bukan kerana lukisannya tetapi terlalu banyak dialog menerangkan semua perkara. Watak utamanya amnesia, dan alien kepada bumi, sudah cukup menerangkan kenapa terlalu banyak penerangan disuapkan kepada pembaca.Lukisan Art Adams memang teliti, tetapi ketelitian penulisannya tidak memudahkan saya baca, seperti keadaan padat ditambah lebih padat.Dari segi ceritanya ini adalah asal-usul kepada watak Longshot dan pengenalan kepada dunianya yang asing bagi k [...]


    7. Hahaha, oh my gosh, this book you guys. THIS BOOK. I can't even how do I describe my experiences reading this? How do I sum up my thoughts upon finishing it? It's so all over the place. It's glorious and ridiculous, nonsense-filled and scattered with *incredibly interesting* ideas. It's got amazing bad guys and some boring ones, it's got guest stars who make it work and some who're clearly just there to sell an issue. It's wrapped up in the somewhat creepy attraction almost every female in this [...]



    8. This is a fun, enjoyable romp. Longshot is a charming hero, naive and confused, and it's amusing to see him try to make sense of the world around him. Nocenti does really good work here.


    9. Reseña de Santiago Negro para La Casa de El:lacasadeel/2016/07/resLa nostalgia es un arma poderosa, bien los saben en el mundillo de la viñeta. La cantidad de reediciones que encontramos en nuestras librerías favoritas dice mucho de cómo funciona hoy en día el mercado, para desgracia de nuestros bolsillos. Especialmente Panini está haciendo una labor de recuperación de sus clásicos bastante importante, con gran cantidad de material que hace años no se asomaba a las estanterías de las l [...]


    10. Fumetto psichedelico e dal fascino retrò, il protagonista mi ha ricordato David Bowie. Ne emerge una, anzi più critiche sociali che seppur tutt’oggi attuali sono espresse con un modo di fare d’altri tempi (dopotutto il fumetto è targato ’89). Lo stile di disegno è buono, vintage, ma l’abbinamento di colori così forti è un pugno nell’occhio che stona parecchio, eppure non risulta affatto inadeguato per storie di questo tipo. Tra viaggi spazio-temporali e mostri alieni giunti sulla [...]



    11. This review originally appeared on my blog: Shared Universe ReviewsAnn Nocenti is to blame for the superhero excesses of the nineties. That might sound hyperbolic and it probably is but after reading Longshot it's nearly impossible to think that this six issues mini-series written by Nocenti and pencilled by Arthur Adams didn't play a contributing factor in the 90s superhero comics explosion of excess. I would argue that on the aesthetic side of things alone, Nocenti has a pretty clear influence [...]


    12. Short version: one scoop TRIGUN, one scoop ALICE IN WONDERLAND, one scoop BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. If that sounds like your bag, by all means dig in.I hadn't read this mini-series when I reached the point when Longshot first popped up in the pages of X-Men and later joined the team full time. I'd seen the character on the animated series, but I was a bit thrown off by his presence in the comics because he seemed like such a cypher. I felt I'd missed the crucial introduction that told me who [...]


    13. It's nice to see the 1985 Longshot limited series being given the deluxe hardcover treatment. This was one of my favorite Marvel limited series when I first started collecting comics, and I still have a soft spot for the character (even though with his leathers and mullet he looks like he escaped from a Europe or Def Leppard video). It doesn't hurt that this series was the "big league" debut of Art Adams.Longshot is better known for his membership in the Uncanny X-Men (in the late `80s), but his [...]


    14. Memories Sometimes, they should just stay that. Memories. I've bought this edition for the fond memory I had of it back then. I was 13 odd and, though I'll admit I didn't get much of the story at the time, I kinda remembered I liked it visually. Yeah, well, one's tastes evolve with time I reckon.First, I should have taken into account that later in my teens I basically never liked Ann Nocenti's works. Not that I don't like her ideas or views on the topics she writes about. I even tend to sympath [...]


    15. One of the most remarkable aspects of Ms. Nocenti's career is that she answered a classified ad in a newspaper to become a Marvel writer. A classified ad! Today, New York Times best-selling authors are scouted to script comic books; unknown writers even landing a gig at an independent comic book company is a non-extant possibility.Ann Nocenti was spot-on when she said Longshot would never exist in the modern comic era if she had not brought him to life in the 1980's. Her career would most likely [...]


    16. I liked this series a whole lot more when I first read it in the 1980s, possibly because every comic back then was written in this very wordy, high-exposition style and Nocenti does a version of the Chris Claremont-ian word jazz which I got the originator's version of monthly in Uncanny X-Men. (It's not surprising that Chris Claremont often took the Mojo characters on later and ran with them.) Also, back then I didn't recognize how repetitive the wordiness is. You'll have no problem figuring out [...]


    17. As the other reviews have said, it's odd. And it's unfortunate that it didn't get to last. I like the strangeness of the coloring, the dialogue, the plot, the characters. It's weird but it's nice. I never would have found this x men comic if I hadn't started looking for comics written (not just edited) by females. It is staggering to realize just how few females are hired on to write comics. The loss to the franchises is obvious to me.p.120- Arize-"Yes. I create. I have just the proper temperame [...]


    18. I really enjoyed that a lot more than I thought I was going to. I thought Longshot was kind of a waste of space in the X-Men comics but here, where he makes sense and actually has a context he's somehow interesting. A lot of great cameos and just general silliness too. Ann Nocenti has a particuliar oddball way of writing dialogue that's not natural or realistic at all, the book comes off really pulpy and it has a surreal, twisted sense of humour at times and some stuff thrown in that's a little [...]


    19. Ann Nocenti should be shot. The dialogue is incomprehensible, and the early Art Adams art is closer to something that influenced Rob Liefeld than the gorgeous stuff he is famous for in modern times. (Admission: I only made it halfway through the first issue before deciding I would rather stare at the ceiling than continue reading.)


    20. Longshot was a different approach to the idea of a superhero. Longshot's powers are based upon whether or not he thinks what he is doing is morally right. His powers create an interesting situation that permeates the story. Along with Longshot, Mojo makes his first appearance in this story before he becomes apart of many different Marvel stories.


    21. Ricochet Rita, the bunker dude, Quark, Longshot this didn't beget a Longshot series blows my mind. This is more or less the perfect miniseries from the most fruitful age of comics. Fits with Claremonts X-books of the time with a seamless blend of scifi, romance, space opera, satire and superhero story. This is amazing and seems especially relevant in today's over Saturated world


    22. When people ask who is my favorite X-men, I still say Longshot. Lucky, handsome, killer mullet wearin', rebel--devil-dog having, amnesiac. What's not to like? Never much cared for the X-men except Beast, Night Crawler, and Wolverine. Colossus, Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Phoenix, Storm, Captain Pickard, and Magneto, were a bunch of whiny can't-get-along babies.


    23. This is incredibly silly, but good fun. In some ways it almost embodies simultaneously things I hate and things I love about some superhero comics. The character development is nil, the plot is incredibly silly, and everything is a bit nonsensical. On the other hand, sometimes I need some brightly colored nonsense.


    24. Switcheo a la edición española para bajar el riesgo de que algún idiota la borre de un plumazo, pero en realidad la tengo en la edición en inglés, que me salió muy barata. Veo que puse que me llamó la atención "el nombre del dibujante", qué raro que no haya resaltado el de la guionista también.


    25. I loved these comics when I was a kid. It was mostly the art. Now I still enjoy the art despite the primitive '80's style inking and coloring. But there isn't too much in the way of an interesting story.




    26. A graphic novel containing the original six issue mini-series of Longshot. Interesting, but not compelling. Gives the background to the character, but the plot is choppy and dull.
