Uncanny X-Men: First Class #1 – A Lapsed X-Fan’s Review

I picked up Uncanny X-Men: First Class #1 last week. This is a new ongoing series from Marvel set in the early days of the Uncanny X-Men.  I guess I’ve got X-Men on the brain.  I’ve mentioned it here before, I used to be a major X-junkie. We’re talking MAJOR junkie. I’d read every single […]

REVIEW: New Mutants #1

New Mutants #1 from Marvel Comics was released back on May 6.  It took me a while to get to this one as I’m behind in my reading, but it was definitely worth the wait. For me, this comic felt like Homecoming.  All my favorite New Mutants were there, but they had grown up. A […]

Uncanny X-Men #500 – A Lapsed X-Fan’s Review

I picked up the recent Uncanny X-Men #500.  I used to be a major X-junkie.  We’re talking MAJOR junkie.  I’d read every single Uncanny X-Men story from Giant-Sized X-Men #1 (1975) through Uncanny X-Men #320 (January 1995).  While I only started reading the series in 1983, I’d gone back and read all the earlier stories.  […]
