    1. Great pencils and beautiful covers by Bill Sienkewicz make this worth a read but the story itself is rather disappointing — a shame because Chris Claremont had a chance to really take this story arc to an interesting place with a fuller exploration of Native American mythology.

    2. It's hard to fully appreciate this comic for what it is, because, even today, the creators seem worlds apart. First you have Chris Claremont's baroque dialogues, which are a sort of stream of consciousness that is transported from character to character, cluttering the panels and exhausting the reader, who has no room for interpreting any nuances (in this way, his writing is downright flat). Secondly, there's Bill Sinkiewicz's art, which I believe is in a transition between Moon Knight's post-Ne [...]

    3. Once again I read this trade in its separate issue format, but figured it should count as part of my reading goal anyway. With the arrival of artist Bill Sienkiewicz, Chris Claremont's darker-fringed teenage series gets the unique visual look it needed from its onset. The story here is about a key moment in the team's progression: their first member has been missing for a long time, they had met their villainous counterparts in the Hellions (though not aware they were really villains), members w [...]

    4. Wow. Now that is some great art. Bill Sienkiewicz is amazing when he is free to roam. Someone gave him free reign at a time when, as I understand it, Marvel was pretty tight on the look of their books. His couple bouts in Uncanny still had a spot of flare, but it was very tempered. Since New Mutants wasn't as big as Uncanny, Sienkiewicz was given more leash. And I am sure glad for that.When I saw some small digital images of the covers for New Mutants done by Sienkiewicz I kinda thought they loo [...]

    5. For the first 17 issues (and a graphic novel) this series was a good, solid and reliable read every month. There certainly was nothing wrong with the series, but there also wasn't anything that made it stand out. And then came Bill Sienkiewicz and things were never tha same. I first discovered this guy while he was working on Moon Knight with Doug Moench, which just kept getting better and better with every issue. I hadn't been particularly fond of the Moench/Sienkiewicz run n the Fantastic Four [...]

    6. The Demon Bear Saga is the peak of New Mutants. Prior to this story, New Mutants had been fun, but not outstanding. The addition of Bill Sienkewicz's pencils elevated it to something truly outstanding. Sienkewicz made the Demon Bear itself a terrifying creature, highlighting its supernatural nature in a way no other artist could have. Meanwhile, Claremont's excellent characterization makes the reader care about the characters, and really fear for them. New Mutants remained an excellent series af [...]

    7. I can only speculate what drove these books to market. Had Chris Claremont not been the most popular author in comics, I doupt they would have printed them. What is true is that Bill Sienkiewicz' art is unlike anything I have ever seen in a comic book. this is awesome.

    8. Some of the best art and writing out of the 1980s. Seinkiewicz is probably my favourite artist and the Demon Bear Saga is just amazing! Plus the New Mutants are super awesome

    9. The story was ok, but the art by Bill Sienkiewicz is so, so amazing. Worth reading for the pictures alone.
