Wolverine #2

Words by Benjamin Percy. Art by Adam Kubert.

Benjamin Percy and Adam Kubert have nailed down Wolverine’s personality. Together they can tell a tale of Wolverine that has been told many times before, yet they keep it fresh. I am excited to see where the story goes with the Pale Girl. I am also here for more naked Wolverine. (10/10)

An entertaining issue that really reveals the motivations of all the characters involved. We learn more about what The Natural is doing, and Sam and Bucky are roped into a situation that makes the situation worthwhile for this mini-series Add in dynamic art and this will help hold us over till the Disney+ show. (10/10)

X-Men/Fantastic Four #3

Words by Chip Zdarsky. Art by Terry Dodson.

X-Men/Fantastic Four is one of the best titles being put out by Marvel right now. The politics are heavy, thought-provoking, and written with beautiful ease by Chip Zdarsky. I am down to see where this goes, and the characterization of our favorite mutants is spot-on perfect! (10/10)

No One’s Rose

Words by Zac Thompson. Art by Emily Horn.

The beauty of this book is that it is brimming with hope for the future. Yes, it’s apocalyptic and disparate, but there is such a fervent change of approach in this book. It has an understanding of nature and life that purports the entire drama of this story. For a book that could have plummeted at any point, Thompson and Horn manage to soar with their narrative. The only true drawback is that it’s more necessary than we thought. (10/10)

Hellions

Words by Zeb Wells. Art by Stephen Segovia.

The only crime this book commits is that it wasn’t a Dawn of X book when the X-titles launched. This book is well written, well drawn, and unique when compared to the rest of the titles in the X-Men line. Do not pass on this book if you like a good surprise every few pages. Hellions is a macabre X-Men tale unveiling a menagerie of freak-show characters that work towards pure comic book delight. (10/10)
