One of the best comics going around at the moment is Wolverine First Class. It is a telling of how the close relationship that Kitty and Logan have evolved, from Kittyâ€™s first days at the Xavier School. Itâ€™s funny, itâ€™s cute, and above all, it gives you the insight in to their relationship it promises. However the sales are not justifying its quality, with only 22,000 sold for issue 3. Itâ€™s a pity, because it is a book I want to continue reading.
One of the best comic series of the past decade or more is, undoubtedly, Astonishing X-Men, by Joss Whedon and penciled by John Cassaday. Together they created one of the most comprehensive, cohesive and controlled pieces of comic literature weâ€™ve seen in a long time. Whedonâ€™s story was breathtaking, and Cassidayâ€™s art was better. So letâ€™s see how long it takes before it all comes crashing down. Why? Because Warren Ellis and Simone Bianchi are now on the book and they arenâ€™t no Whedon and Cassaday.
Archie Comics has gotten a lot of publicity with its realistic interpretations of the Archie gang, and the latest installment to get this treatment is Pals-n-Gals Double Digest #125, that features the break up of Midge and Moose – and you aren’t going to believe who Midge is dating.
I became a fan of X-Factor late last year, and have been in love ever since. To be fair, itâ€™s pretty much just a giant man-crush on Jamie Madrox, but there is nothing too shabby about Siren either, a character that I really do like. However, the reason I continue to keep reading X-Factor â€“ primarily â€“ is to see when in hells bells Layla Miller will return. And to anyone who wants to cry â€œMarvel continuity sucksâ€ at me for her appearance in Secret Invasion, give me a break; it was a flash-back!
