X-Men Forever #3 Review

In Comic Reviews on July 10, 2009 at 11:50 am

10 Claremont returns and infuriates comic fans everywhere with his latest addition to the X-Men Forever series. Of course I hate this book too, right?

(And yes, that image to the left is from the 2001 series. Just pretend that’s the cover of the current X-Men Forever #3).

Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1

Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1

“Utopia” Part 1

Writer: Matt Fraction

Pencils: Marc Silvestri, with assists by Michael Broussard, Eric Basaldua, Tyler Kirkham, & Sheldon Mitchell

Inks: Joe Weems, with Marco Galli, Eric Basaldua, Rick Basaldua, Jason Gorder, Jay Leisten, Sal Regla, Jon Sibal, & Ryan Winn

VIDEO: The Pull List! Week of May 28, 2009

In The Pull List! on May 25, 2009 at 11:00 am

So this week, I decided to try something new! Your Pull List is now in a convenient, bite size format, in the form of the video below.

Hope you enjoyed it! Leave a comment and let us know what you think for future episodes.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine: The GameEarlier today, I posted this less than favorable review of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”.  A glutton for punishment, I saw that the demo for the video game interpretation had been released, and jumped at the chance.  All I have to say is this: holy SHIT!  Why wasn’t this released instead of the movie!?
