Re: Lone Wolf and Cub

Comixology has the entire run that DH released in digest format. There are 28 volumes in that run. The first three volumes are available to download for free under their Unlimited program.

Although what is up with Thunderstrike's hairdo?

Re: Fantastic Four #2

I loved how Slott showed events from Reed, Sue and the Foundation's perspective leading up to the reason behind Reed's distress signal from last issue and the twist he imposed using that signal here on this last page. What Entropy did to Molecule Man and then swatting away Franklin with a brush of h...

Re: X-Men Blue #35

Regardless of how it all plays out, death is what Cyclops is facing. From his own vantage point, he's aware that he will die in the future and there's not going to be anything he can do to stop it, because he will have forgotten. Let's not forget about his legacy either. Yes, Tyke may be upset over...

Re: eXtermination #1

The two kids from the beginning... I kind of get the impression that they’re more important to the story than we think. They seemed to be the first big mystery of this issue and then the puzzles just kept coming thick and fast. Could they be the hounds that Ahab had? They appear later in the story ...

Re: Astonishing X-Men Annual 001 (2018)

I could see mind-wiping/altering Hank, Bobby, and Warren to be happier (or more accepting). But Jean? I'm not so sure. Even if such a treatment worked with her, it seems like it may fade or crack over time given her prowess. A very strong story, an unhappy school reunion that faces hard moral choice...

Re: eXtermination #1

Typically I am very cynical about deaths in comics. However, the two deaths here were extremely effective. Bloodstorm's death was emotionally shocking, especially after her romantic scenes with Scott. The brutality of Cable's death was physically shocking (even as the reveal of young Cable seemingly...

For his part, Slott nailed the characterizations here and I loved the way that he showed the effects of the FF's absence on the general population of the MU. While Zdarsky's story in Two-in-One has been very good, Slott hit some good character notes of his own here, Johnny's impassioned plea to the ...

Based on the flashback, Ainet's prayer rekindled the connection between the hammer and Storm which sought her out back when she was in jail and thus Storm has been able to wield the hammer since despite Ainet's death over a month ago. Again, another decent story highlighting an aspect of Storm's pas...

Hm, it's odd when the best thing that I could say about this issue was Land's art. The comedic element throughout this entire issue felt forced in some ways, from Beast's cagey evasions over what may be happening with Sean now to everyone's reactions to Sean (apparently the new X-zombie), to Warpath...

This isn’t a redemption story for Havok— inversion wasn’t his fault, and nor was anything he did whilst inverted . He hasn’t been a hero in some time now. If anything he’s STILL stuck in the habit of using his powers to destroy rather than using them as he did as a hero (more controlled, more measu...

I think the only good thing I can say about this issue is that I liked the nod to Claremont and Byrne with the name of the hotel With the lamest eye-rolling name that I've read in quite some time, that is. I think a nice twist would be if DoFP Peter's last comment to his Katya was true about Kitty ...

The thing about Marcus Is certainly a dark mark on their history and without question an instance in which they failed her(unless it was later retconned by Avengers Forever to also be a plot by Immortus, I’m not sure lol). Claremont rightfully pointed out this dark mistake but he goes too far in bl...

Re: X-Men Blue #30

Fair points all with what's wrong with this issue. My biggest gripe is that even when Teen Jean finally scans Jimmy's mind (over Daken and Scott's objections once more), we're not shown what she 'sees' or learns that convinces her to let him go off alone. Yeah, it's an understated given that Jimmy p...

David Marquez' art here was stunning, he just seems to be getting better and better, his work on Defenders was the best thing about that title, this was another step up even from that, I'd love to see him as a regular artist on an X-Title. I wonder why there hasn't been more consistency on the art ...

So how many characters did Claremont plan on being gay? For now I've read claims that along with Kitty and Rachel, he's apparently said that Karma and Illyana were as well. Also, that Mystique and Destiny may be the real parents of Rogue (which does sound vaguely familiar). This just seems irrationa...
