Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Art: Kris AnkaWe’re dealing with the aftermath of the event in Newberry, SC this issue and pick up where we left off: with Cyclops convincing Matthew Malloy to go have breakfast??

(Belated) Comic Review: All-New X-Men #33

I think this my favorite recent iteration of Bobby Drake. Kudos to Mahmud Asrar for this melting effect. If they kept this look it would help show some evolution of young Bobby. We already see evidence he is learning from his new experiences with making ice hulks. I’m not sure of the creature he ends […]
