In honor of Jean Grey’s first ongoing series, it seemed like a good time to touch on an important bit of Marvel lore: Clones, swerves and all-powerful alien simulacra aside, and regardless of what internet wags would have you believe, Miss Grey has actually died exactly once… This is that story. Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of New X-Men #150 awaits!
There are a lot of vehement opinions about Grant Morrison’s redefining run on New X-Men, but no matter what you believe, you have to agree that they pulled off one of the best shocking swerves in modern comic book history… Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of New X-Men #146 awaits!
Or – “Well, I’m Not TOO Far Behind…” On Wednesday, the ghosts and goblins came out to scare us out of our minds, and to allow us all to unleash the slutty truth within us. DC Comics also tapped into the holiday zeitgeist, unleashing an old favorite on the world with little fanfare, but is it a fright-fest or a huge mess? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “I Used To Call My Boss The Ice Queen…” The adventures of Briar Rose and Ali Baba have only begun, but I’m already prepared to be enjoying this title for years, much as the mother Fables book itself. Will #3 live up to the standard set by the first two?
Or – “Hey, I Forgot About This!” One of the unpleasant side effects of working on the fringes of the comic industry is that, sometimes, you get caught up in solicitations and coming attractions and forget that a particular event hasn’t actually HAPPENED yet. I’ve been looking forward to the Legion Academy story and the return of Phil Jiminez to the 30th Century for some time now, but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived this week. It’s one of the most talented artists of our time, plus Bouncing Boy and Duplicate Damsel? SOLD!
