Top 100 Summer Comics #69

Joe Madureira was the first big name “NEW” artist after the trifecta of Jim Lee / Rob Liefeld / Todd McFarlane hit in the late 80’s.

That’s not to say he was the first new artist who came out. The early 90’s had some gems… but none of them garnered the hype and immediate acclaim that any of the names mentioned did. Joe Mad was an instant brand.

And Marvel was NOT going to let what went down with those other three names go down again so quickly.

#69 – Uncanny X-Men 328

What’s shocking is how little comic book work he’s actually done. Including his recent 5 issue run on Ultimates 2 with Jeph Loeb, Joe Mad has done about 43 full issues. Crazy. However, about half of them were on the Uncanny X-Men. No bigs. This issue finally brought some resolution to this whole weird “Rehabilitate Sabretooth” storyline that seemed pretty ill advised. Biggest complaint about Marvel Comics creative post 1990 – TOO MUCH REHAB. Leave unadulterated evil alone. Here… wrongs were righted.
