CAN NOT WAIT!
Seriously, I think this is amazing. Dynamic, expressive, fun, kinetic, cute, I could go on and on….thanks to Comic Book Resources for October’s Advance X-Solicitations for this gem. This cover is by Skottie Young and it’s so fabulous I wish he were doing the interiors, but I will most definitely give Jacob Chabot a chance to win me over as well!
I have been meaning to blog about this new title, but it keeps slipping my mind. I like it okay enough so far. It’s weird for me to read retro stories that fit in between the classics, but this is the only comic in which you can read about Banshee and Phoenix, so I will be following it slavishly. Cover by Roger Cruz.
Really looking forward to celebrating X-Factor’s fiftieth issue! Look at this yummy cover art by David Yardin! This is the most motley group of mutants in the titles these days, but I love the disparity of powers and personalities at work here. And despite what Rob Liefeld may feel, it looks like Shatterstar will be continuing his relationship with Rictor. Many thanks to scribe Peter David!
Also shipping in October is Astonishing X-Men #31 which brings superstar artist Phil Jimenez on board with writer Warren Ellis for a six issue arc!
