I guess it’s not X-men but I’d pay for a David Wynne drawing of Ronan accusing his parents.
If you’re serious, here’s how to make that happen: http://particlefiction.bigcartel.com/commissions
Spider-Man lives a life of full of regrets.
So, how much of what Fang is saying is utter lies and bullshit? It just seems weird for such a powerful being to be introduced just now, make all of these revelations, and judge all these people when he, himself, is clearly such a joyful irredeemable asshole. Bet he’s really the Beyonder coming back just in time for Secret Wars.
I know this is a bit off topic, but Rachel, you’ve had some pretty rad ensembles before, but you were *really* rocking the minimalist androgyny this week.
At one point I busted out laughing at the juxtaposition between Rachel using her serious voice to say serious things about a comic and the ridiculous cyberpunk shades. Kudos.
I disagree with Rachel about ANXM 39 – I unreservedly love Sorrentino/Maiolo’s art. The are so, so many great layouts and facial expressions and postures that I can forgive the occasional confusingly blue Jean here and there.
Not my favorite week overall, but ANXM and Magneto really killed it. I didn’t realize until Rachel mentioned it, but Magneto really is SO strongly defined by Bellaire’s colors. More than the writing or pencils, the page-by-page color schemes end up being the first thing I go to when I think about the comic.
