So so good. Everything about this comic is great. Seriously. The art! Oh my goodness, the art. And Bendis’ writing is top notch here. I’m loving this.
This issue had some history on this new crazy drug that Diamondback put on the streets. Then a huge fight between him and Jessica Jones & Iron Fist. And then… and then it ends with brief appearances from The Punisher and Elektra! So it looks like there’s plenty more surprises to keep rolling in.
Jean continues on with her training. This time with Psylocke. Good issue. Mostly about Jean learning how to control her powers. It seems like it’s fight or flight that triggers them – so now I’m really starting to think that my theory about this being a story about dealing with anxiety was spot on.
Some great art this issue. Still totally enjoying this series.
Another great issue, this one. Unfortunately it looks like this is already the end of the MJ/Venom stuff. Too bad, I was really digging that.
But there’s a bunch of build-up here to whatever’s going to happen next with Osbourne. So I guess this was mostly meant as a brief transition. But damn, MJ/Venom was cool.
Obviously we don’t need ANOTHER X-Men book right now. Of course not. I mean there’s already more than I can even read. Right now I’m totally content with X-Men: Blue. But damn, look at that cover art. Wow. I had to pick this up. And I’m pretty glad I did.
It feels like a solid start. This oversized issue had Psylocke attacked by the Shadow King. She calls to various X-Men to bring together this ragtag team. Now they’re off hunting the Shadow King. It seems cool enough.
The art is great. The writing is – well it’s Charles Soule, so you know it’s good. I’m interested for now. We’ll see how this goes.
