- Cable: A Series Retrospective
Duane Swierczynski’s Cable series is exactly what it needed to be. Coming out of Messiah Complex, the latest volume of Cable followed the title character and his efforts to protect the first mutant born since the M-day event during House of M. It involves one of my favorite characters, time travel, dystopian futures, and chase scenes with
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø1
I’m hooked on X-Men: Second Coming just like I was on Messiah Complex and only one issue has been released. I just finished reading it and my brain is already counting down to next Wednesday. Yes, I read other books today including Blackest Night #8. Yes, it was a great series, but the Marvel Universe
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø2
The second installment of the epic X-Men: Second Coming crossover hit stores yesterday and I’m dying to talk about it. I can’t tell you how I appreciate the weekly schedule for this series, but I can tell you I may spoil things here.
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø3
Installment three of the epic X-Men: Second Coming crossover was right on time yesterday. This was a book that felt like nothing happened when I finished reading it, but as I started writing this I realized that a whole lot happened. I must have been in shock, spoilers to follow.
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø4
X-Men: Second Coming Chapter ø4 is in stores now, and the book did not disappoint. Spoilers below. The New Mutants’ victory over The Right comes at a price, though not the one I expected. While Karma is seriously wounded, the real sacrifice is that Warlock is forced to make an impossible choice and take several
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø5
X-Men: Second Coming Chapter ø5 hit stores yesterday, and this is the big “death” issue that’s been talked about since the crossover began. I’m never really sure how to handle major plot spoilers in reviews, so I’m probably going to overcompensate. Click through to read on, provided you don’t mind knowing all the tragic details.
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø6
I suppose there had to be a let down somewhere along this wild ride and X-Men: Second Coming Chapter ø6, you’re it. Spoilers to follow along with a lot a disappointment. I looked at a preview for this book last week, so I knew I was going to have some problems with it. The problems
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø7
Things appear to be back on track with X-Men: Second Coming Chapter ø7 after the frustrations of last issue. After some time away, I can say that Chapter ø6 was decent despite its imperfections but this week’s installment is solid. Spoilers next.
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø8
Another great issue in the X-Men: Second Coming crossover was released this week as we reach Chapter ø8 and officially pass the half-way mark. I’m sure I’ll spoil some things going forward.
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming ø9
X-Men: Second Coming Chapter ø9 is available at comics shops everywhere this week. The book featured some great action and moved the crossover into the final act. More details will follow, among them will be what some would consider spoilers.
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming Interlude
I suppose there had to be a week without an issue of X-Men: Second Coming shipping. Every week for 14 weeks was just too good to be true. As anxious as I am to know what’s coming next, the break just makes the anticipation that much sweeter. There’s only one more issue of each of
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming 10
After the one week hiatus at the start of June, X-Men: Second Coming is back in full swing as it enters the final act. The next four chapters are the final issues of each of the titles crossing over before the finale, and first up is Uncanny X-Men #525. Spoilers to follow.
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming 11
X-Men:Second Coming Chapter 11 is here, and Zeb Wells’ final New Mutants issue of the cross over was rock solid. It’s a book that made it clearer than ever how much I’m going to miss this when it’s over. Spoilers to follow.
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming 12
Mike Carey’s final X-Men: Legacy issue of the X-Men: Second Coming crossover is on the shelf this week. Carey is one of my favorite writers, so the expectations are high. I haven’t been disappointed by many of his issues over the course of his run on this title, but how does this one measure up? Read on
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming 13
This issue of X-Men: Second Coming was simply amazing. There’s no question about it, it’s a 5 out of 5 on a distraction scale from 1 to 5. It’s difficult to even try to consider the book as a single entity given that it’s Chapter 13 of 14, but I can’t imagine someone reading it
- REVIEW: X-Men Second Coming 14
The end is here. The final issue of X-Men: Second Coming is out now and it makes for a very satisfying conclusion to what has been an epic crossover event. After the climactic battle in Chapter 13, the finale is a much more personal issue that surveys the damages inflicted on the X-Men and looks
