    X-Men ’92 continues to frustrate me with its lack of originality. It’s a book fueled entirely by homage, and that bores me. I want them to show more willingness to its own thing.

    (By the way, the Darkhold Dwarf was from the ’90s Darkhold series. He’s a servant of the Darkhold, giving pages to people so they can screw things up. Like I said, everything in this series is just grabbed from somewhere else. The Dwarf even showed up in the current Carnage series!)

    OML is great. The art is so gorgeous. Sorrentino and Maiolo do such gorgeous work, and that last page would make one hell of a poster. It’s probably the best Old Man Logan image I’ve seen.

    Wolverine is so great. So much fun. Jetpacks! And some great one-liners. And Laura rocks the Captain Marvel t-shirt. Yeah, this is just a great comic.

    And congratulations to Books With Pictures!

      Actually, it occurs to me I’m being unfair on calling the use of the Dwarf unoriginal. If you’re going to use the Darkhold, you may as well use the Dwarf – he serves as a way of giving character to the book. He’s a useful device, in that sense, and there’s nothing wrong with using him.

      I was just trying to point out that Sims and Bowers weren’t the ones who came up with him, because it seemed like you were giving them the credit for that. My added jab was unnecessary.
