X-Force 72, 1997
Domino gone butch... and solo. Looks a little less broken in this cameo
appearance, but there's a definite lack of her old humor in the book. I
should probably note that I have a deep-seated hatred for this haircut,
which with henceforth be known as the the haircut that WOULD NOT DIE. Obviously,
no uniform to comment on. Nice shirt, though...
X-Force 95, 1999
See what I mean about the haircut that wouldn't die? Two years later,
it's still butchered. Someone tell me why every other woman's hair in the
X-Books grows back in two issues, and it takes another year after this
to get Domino back to normal? Also note, new artist, who only knows how
to draw one face. And one expression. Well, I guess it lends to the general
air of 'not right-ness' Dom's personality has by this point in the book.
Or maybe I'm trying to rationalize all-around suckiness. I still hate that
X-Force 107, 2000
Okay, a bit of a note on this one. First, I stole the image right off
Marvel's bio. Ha. Second, it's the *cover* to 107, which is credited to
Whilce Portacio and Gerry Alanguilan. So I don't know who's responsible
for this atrocity. I'm thinking it's the later, though, since Portacio
did the interiors to several books, and they were even more hideous. So
ugly, I refused to scan them. Oddly enough, the truly eclectic outfit is
pretty normal for Dom... I hate this haircut too, but at least the old
one finally died.
X-Force 110, 2001
New artist, still ugly. By this point, Marvel isn't bothering to keep
any artists on any books for more than a few issues. Large amounts of crap
abound. Also, they're now apparently trying to save money on ink by not
using any color on Domino at all... seriously, in 111, even her shirt fades
to a sickly greyish-pink. I'd scan a picture of the uniform they stuck
her in, but it's just not worth the pain of going back through the issues.
Think black body-suit with white prom-style gloves. Butt ugly. What a sad
way to effectively end the series.
