Avengers Vs X-Men To Be The Model For Future Marvel Events

It’s true I’ve been a little down on the Avengers Vs X-Men event, only really liking a couple of the issues so far, but enjoying more of the spinoff bits – the opposite of the way I usually experience these things. But I can’t deny that it’s been far more effective than previous crossovers, dominating […]

Man, what is it with marriages these days? They always end up being on opposite sides of a war splitting the planet asunder and then getting annulled.

It was possibly one of the more amusing spinoffs of Avengers VS X-Men, the Skottie Young variant cover for the first issue for Midtown Comics.

Kieron Gillen’s Avengers Vs X-Men: Consequences

A week or so ago, I heard mention of a new big X-Men book with a different creative team each week, first issue written by Kieron Gillen, the second by Jason Aaron, but I wasn’t sure enough on the source, so I put it on the back burner. Well, this is possibly what it was […]

It’s not worth it. Not […]
