Comic Review: X-Men #18

We start this issue with the ladies fighting a hyper developed virus?? It’s a strange start but OK. We get to see the team working together and Rachel being a virtual knowledge machine, spreading the wealth to those in need, like the operators from The Matrix. I can already tell the difference between the writing […]

Comic Review: X-Men #17

Jubilee goes nuts, rips out The Future’s throat and dines on his blood. Nope! That doesn’t happen. Afterwards, Storm and Kymera go to get coffee and talk relationships and future-history. Nope! That doesn’t happen either. Beast evolves yet again and is now hairless. Nope! Not at all. This issue left me wanting more from the arc and from […]
