Chris Claremont takes a break from what may be his worst book and we get two fill-ins with guest-stars to goose sales. And both are better than what Claremont has been doing with this book, so I guess this is a good thing.
First, a Halloween story in which Meggan is turned into a vampire. Dr. Strange helps save the day, after an attempt at a funny who’s-on-first exchange with Wong.
Then, Scott Lobdell auditions (he’ll become the regular writer very soon) with a story about Nightcrawler going on vacation to an island that is actually the child of Krakoa The Living Island, where natives worship Easter-Island-sized busts of The X-Men.
