Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Art: Valerio Schiti; Colors: Richard Isanove; Cover: Kris Anka;While I read this issue I kept thinking, “This is a dream sequence.

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Artist: Mahmud Asrar; Colors: Marte GraciaMr. Bendis brings the All-New X-Men back from the Ultimate universe and down a path towards redemption. The Jeans interact very well without just being a gimmick.

(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 […]
