X-Men thoughts (rant)

x-logoFinally catching up on comics.  Still a bit behind, but figured I’d jump in to list off some thoughts on various things happening in the X-Men world.

Review: AvX Consequences

Those who have kept up with my AvX reviews should know that I was not entirely pleased with the series.  The idea was good, but the execution was flawed.  More so, I was rather upset with how they treated Scott at the end of everything.  Consequences on the other hand has been handled absolutely wonderfully.

RANT: Avengers Vs. X-Men part 12 – Final

AvX Part 12 is going to be the final part of my AvX review series.  Due to a currently busy schedule, I just don’t have the time to promise an AvX Consequences or A+X review at this moment.  If I somehow get the time, I will, but reviews from me for the next few weeks probably won’t happen.  Maybe I’ll get to a Consequences overview once its over, but I’ve stalled enough.  Without further adue, my look at part 12, and in general the AvX crossover event.  If you haven’t read this yet, be warn of spoilers.

Decent book. Terrible cover.

This Week In Comics: 4th of July Edition

This week in comics, America America America America!  Also, Animal Man breaks out of its slump!

Why this cover? Because I forgot to pick up Action Comics #11 this week. To be fair, my comic shop files it under S for Superman, rather than A for Action Comics, and I disagree strongly with that policy. I understand it, but still, that’s just not reasonable. I’m open to debate on that claim, though.

Avengers vs. X-Men: so far part 3

I was starting to plan an update every other week for AvX stuff, but the Gambit vs. Captain America fight was too good to leave for a week before it got a review!  Plus, it did help my pull list had a rather large stack this week.
SPOILER WARNING!
