Comic Reviews for the week of 2/19/14
Pick of the Week: Uncanny X-Men #17 (Marvel Comics) Brian Michael Bendis Writer/Chris Bachalo Pencils/Tim Townsend Inks
What is this? Volume 3 of Uncanny X-Men, I really can not keep track. I was so upset when they discontinued the first and original Uncanny title and i will probably never be able to forgive Marvel/Disney on that little screw up. I can say this volume thanks to the likes of Bendis/Bachalo/Townsend is leaps and bounds better then the last series. Good thing cause X-Men plainly titled is a shit fest in the making since issue #2. I know one does not only get a pass, but was actually promising and looked good before the following issues. I have missed the mysticism and wonderment of the 80's and 90's mutant books and Uncanny X-Men has recaptured that wonderment as the original series.
Runner-Up: Amazing X-Men #4 Jason Aaron Writer/Ed McGuinness Pencils/Dexter Vines Inks (Marvel Comics), New Warriors #1 Christopher Yost Writer/Marcus To Art (Marvel Comics), Nova #13 Gerry Duggan Writer/Paco Medina Pencils (Marvel Comics)
