MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #16: LONGSHOT (1989)

This isn’t a terrible story.  It takes place while the X-Men are hiding in Australia, believed dead.  Longshot goes to play outside and is racing a kangaroo when he literally crashes into an aborigine.  The native Australian then teaches Longshot how to “dream walk,” and Longshot has a big hallucinatory fight against a monster.

8-page stories pretty much have to be pointless diversions, and that’s what this is.  So, for what it is, it’s not terrible. Ann Nocenti writes it, and she’s been away from this character since she created him.

Creators: Ann Nocenti, Larry Dixon
