Domino Hotshots #5: The Final Showdown [Preview]

It’s been a good run across the Domino series and the Domino: Hotshots follow-up, but barring a surprise announcement at San Diego Comic-Con, it looks like this is goodbye for now for Domino, as Domino Hotshots #5 hits stores next week. And in this preview, we find the titular Hotshots getting ready for a final […]

X-ual Healing

Matthew Rosenberg Explains It All in Uncanny X-Men #19 [X-ual Healing 6-5-19]

It’s time once again for X-ual Healing, the column where we read all the X-Men comics that came out last week so you don’t have to! Well, you should read the ones you like. We’ll tell you about the rest. This week, it’s a very special episode, as Uncanny X-Men #19 explains basically everything that’s […]

Outlaw Gets a New Power in Next Week's Domino: Hotshots #2

Outlaw Gets a New Power in This Week’s Domino: Hotshots #2

Domino: Hotshots is the continuation of Gail Simone and David Baldeon’s Domino series, except in the form of a mini-series, and with a couple of extra female asskickers added for good measure. And the new mini-series kicked off with a bang in its first issue when the team battled a scientist apparently infected with some […]

Kotobukiya has a new Bishoujo statue up for preorder for shipping in the fall. The new Domino Bishoujo statue is in the 1/7th scale and features the mutant posed onto of a domino with a little mini-Deadpool at her feet. This is based off her look from the Domino comic from last year by Gail […]

Domino Fangirls Out Over the Black Widow in Next Week’s Hotshots #1

Domino’s solo series by Gail Simone and David Baldeon ended way too soon. Way too soon! Seriously, that book could have gone another thousand issues and we’d never get tired of it! Thankfully, Domino is back next week, even if it is just for the first issue of a five-issue mini-series. In a preview of […]

Finding Religion in Next Week’s Domino Finale

At the end, perhaps, we all turn to religion, looking for a promise of life after death. For a comic book series publishing its final issue next week, perhaps it’s the same concept? In any case, in next week’s Domino #10, the titular Domino asks for help from the man upstairs before diving off an […]

X-Mas Comes Early as Cyclops Returns! [X-ual Healing 12-19-18]

No intro this week, folks. Marvel decided they needed to publish seven X-Men comics the week before Christmas and this thing is already pushing 3,000 words, so let’s get right to the recaps. Sworn to sell comics for Marvel executives who feared and hated the fact that Fox owned their movie rights, The Uncanny X-Men suffered great […]

Is Rocking a Mullet a Reason to Kill a Man? Next Week’s Domino #9

Domino’s business dealings with Wakandan general Shoon’kwa haven’t gone very smoothly. Domino and her team previously found themselves kidnapping Morbius the Living Vampire and then forced to take on an aquatic vampire cult. On the other hand, Shoon’kwa pays well. But the next job she has for Domino, Outlaw, and Diamondback may be a step […]

Goodbye, Stan Lee [X-ual Healing 11-14-18]

This week, we lost Stan Lee, not only the man perhaps most synonymous with Marvel comics and comic books in general (though he irritatingly called them “comicbooks”), but also the co-creator of the subject of this column, our beloved X-Men. Lee’s legacy is a complicated one, one which has been addressed at length in dozens […]

Morbius vs. Outlaw the Vampire Slayer in Next Week’s Domino #8

BOOM! Studios is busy debuting new slayers throughout history in its reimagined Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic, but over at Marvel, we’re getting a new slayer for right now, next week, in Domino #8.

Stealth Crossover? Domino and Mr. and Mrs. X Both Visit the Mojoverse in January

Two upcoming X-titles are headed to the Mojoverse in January, according to Marvel’s January solicitations.

X #7 KELLY THOMPSON (W) […]

Cyclops Was Right and Cullen Bunn is a Hero Who Knows It [X-ual Healing 9-26-18]

There’s not many things in the comics industry from the past decade that bother us more than what Marvel has done to our beloved Cyclops. First, disrespected by that no-good Wolverine in the X-Men Schism, lectured for putting children in danger to save mutantkind despite Wolverine’s own predilection for literally murdering his own children, not […]

Weapon X #23 cover by Rahzzah

Weapon X #23 Review: Deadpool is a Comic-Killer

Deadpool is working for Mentallo and attacks Weapon X. Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike, Domino, Mystique, and Omega Red struggle to contain him. Deathstrike injects him with nanites to combat Mentallo’s control, but it turns out that Wade is working for money willingly. That means that Weapon X must take him down the old-fashioned way. Maybe Frail […]
