X-Force (1991) #32-37, Annual #3
New Warriors #45-46
Child's Play collects a relatively minor Marvel crossover originally printed in mid-1990s. In these issues a group of sadistic Upstarts led by Gamemaster hunt mutants for fun. They target the former New Mutants and Hellions which brings the Upstarts into conflict with X-Force (this iteration of X-Force is a group of mostly "graduated" New Mutants/Hellions led by Cable).
Most notable in this novel are the return of several characters that hadn't been seen in a long time (one since New Mutants was in print): Karma returns, Dani Moonstar seems to be returning to her former team mates, and Magma's backstory/character get a much needed facelift. Domino, one of my favorite characters, figures prominently in many battles.
Writer Fabian Nicieza holds together a successful run of X-Force issues. And artist Tony Daniel provides some brilliant art. I thought Daniel's art particularly in the scene between Siryn and Banshee wonderfully conveyed emotion in the character's faces.
If you are new to X-Men much of this graphic will be confusing. If you are readingthe current X-Force and want more, this is not the right book for you. If however New Mutants was one of your favorite series, then I think you will also like this novel
