I really, really want New Mutants to be great. It’s been…solid, for the first year, but against the rest of the current X-Men line, is solid really enough?
The thing about X-Force is that somehow, after a full twelve issues, what would’ve been a year’s worth of comics in non-COVID times, I still keep wanting to come back to it, review work aside. That it accomplishes this despite featuring two characters I’ve come to despise is impressive.
Leah Williams and David Baldeon kicked off the new X-Factor last month with the story of Jean-Paul Beaubier (Northstar) gathering a team to investigate the death of his sister, Jeanne-Marie Beaubier (Aurora), in hopes of resurrecting her on Krakoa. This month’s issue begins with Aurora and Northstar’s reunion and quickly moves to X-Factor’s newest case,…
Richard Rider has had a hard time in the 21st century, y’all. After being boosted to the most prominent cosmic hero in Marvel’s roster following the Annihilation crossover, Nova spent the past two decades saving the universe in a non-stop race from disaster after disaster. Even the death of his closest friends, and even himself,…
Welcome to Cover Girls. Each month, we gather a team of WWAC contributors to analyze a new and notable comic book cover featuring one or more women. This month, Rachel, Cori, Dani, Wendy, and Zoe share their thoughts on the cover of Marauders #12 by Russell Dauterman for Marvel Comics.
The end of an empyre! Empyre: X-Men, that is. Can the X-Men survive the onslaught of the undead and the Cotati’s living doomsday weapon? Dani Kinney and Kayleigh Hearn survey the wreckage in Empyre: X-Men #4!
A good film noir has a look and a feel to it. The detective’s narrow office. The mysterious woman, entering to seek his help. Is she a victim or a villain? Can the hero trust her? Spider-Man Noir #2 opens with this question, our hero ruminating on the mysterious Huma as they cross the Atlantic….
Kitty Pryde has been a favorite character for Jewish superhero fans since her inception, but Marauders #11 insults everything about her identity. Created by John Byrne and Chris Claremont in 1980, Kitty is notably one of the few Marvel characters who has been depicted as Jewish since her creation. By comparison, Ben Grimm, who was…
Genosha, once the graveyard for 16 million mutants, is now crawling with life! Well, alien and zombie life (half-life?), that is. Suddenly swarmed, the X-Men have called in a small army of psychics to stave both invasions. Can they succeed? Read on with Dani Kinney and Kayleigh Hearn to find out!
I was along for the ride in the first couple of issues, but I have to say that Cable #3 has a little too much of some things I am absolutely not fond of. Chief among them? Well, it starts with Dead and ends with Pool.
It’s been literal months since Marvel released Wolverine #2, which probably doesn’t help make the final issue in Percy’s questionable “War on Drugs” story any easier to understand.
Right off the bat, I have to say that the cover to X-Force #11 is one of my favorites so far.
