Just a quick question for everyone. How many will be dropping Astonishing after this arc is over? I'm not loving the whole Astonishing X mini-series idea and I'm kind of on the fence about. It's the only X-book I buy and I don't really want to not be reading about the X-Men . I guess I could just read Uncanny after Second Coming though.

I'll be dropping it after this arc. The new direction sounds terrible to me.

You should be reading Uncanny anyway. It's great.

I would be reading Uncanny if it wasn't for Second Coming. I haven't read all of the Hope/Cable story and really have no interest to do so now. Plus 3 other books to enjoy the story doesn't excite me either. I'll read it post-Second Coming assuming Fraction is still on it.

He will be, but don't read it. Wait for an Uncanny Omnibus.

Don't read the Aaron or Ellis Astonishing minis.

Get your X-stories from Morrison's X-Men for now.

I don't blame you for that at all.

Bruce and I were talking about hating having to get those other books just to get the story.

But since we both read Uncanny, we'd be missing chunks of story if we didn't.

But yeah, just read Morrison's New X-Men already.

Solution: It doesnt fucking matter. What it boils down to is that by the time Siege and BN are done he will have 8 extra bucks for other comics or, considering the Username, some Honey Dutches or Blunt Wraps. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming. Question about Hope...who's daughter is she. I forgot who gave birth to her. Was it another mutant or a human.

I like her too but still that bears some explaining. You cant tell me that she has only been there a few days. Since she has been gone Messiah Complex/War, Secret Invasion, the X-men moved to San Fran, the X-men move to a rock in the ocean near San Fran, Siege, as well as Necrosha have all happened. Even in comic book time that has to be at least a month that she is gone.

03-19-2010, 07:24 PM
The fact that she phased a planet destroying sized bullet shot out of a cannon in another galaxy through the earth is cool, but then surviving in said bullet for an unknown amount of time without oxygen and food and also having possibly become pregnant during that time needs explaining?

Fraction really needs to explain the serious stuff, like where has she been going to the bathroom during this time? And how exactly has she kept her hair looking so nice with no curling iron, brush, hair dryer, hair spray, shampoo, conditioner, etc.?

The birth rate is climbing in the small African village of Karere…and these newborns are anything but normal: infants made of steel, infants only partially visible to the eye, infants who combust and destroy city blocks. Hoping to witness the rebirth of the mutant species, the X-Men go to investigate. But what they find may just be something far more sinister and dangerous…and familiar.

Last I remember (IIRC as it's been a few weeks since I read the last chapter), the zombies on Genosha have been wasted in a explosion, which Selene no longer needs as she became some kind of God. Seemingly, the key to stopping her lies with War Path.

Necrosha isn't a riveting storyline, but it also isn't a major cross-over event which is good since some people are burning out on those. The best part is watch Wolvie and X slice and dice zombies. It's a bloody good time.

You're fine just reading what you are.

Yes, Finch is very 90's, especially when he's drawing Cable.

I thought about comparing BN and SC, but you really can't. One is company-wide, the other is property specific. So, you could compare SC to that Arsenal thing going on now.

I enjoyed it. Cyclops was written as a real leader, which is something I don't see a lot anymore. Finch wasn't great(the beginning), but he really killed it in some areas(the truck scenes). And my lack of X-Men knowledge didn't hurt the book too much, so that's a big plus. Though I was a bit confused on who Psylocke, Laura, and some other girl were. They all look alike. Excluding the fairy girl, I liked her line...mainly because its exactly what I was thinking.

What "chapters" are necessary? I was thinking about just reading whatever tie-ins Yost/Kyle are writing, would that be best? What issues are those? HELP ME!

Kyle and Yost will be writing the X-Force chapters of the story. I'm not positive on what the best thing to do is, but I've decided to read everything that's listed as a "chapter." That'll be Uncanny, New Mutants, Legacy, and Kyle and Yost's book. I'm not going to be reading the tie-in mini or the X-Factor issues that are listed as just "tie-in."

I enjoyed it. Cyclops was written as a real leader, which is something I don't see a lot anymore.

Probably because you don't see him written at all.

You need to buy all the chapters, or don't buy any.

You wouldn't take several 15 minute breaks during a movie, would you?

I know this was Finch's last interior work at Marvel, but he's doing covers for the other chapters. Did you like this?

It was good, well written and drawn.

However, it has little event impact. The drama feels like business as usual, which is fine, but why does it deserve to be called an event, other than money grabbing?

I thought it was a good opening chapter.

I still wish I wasn't going to have to buy all the issues I normally wouldn't get, but I feel a little better about it after this issue.

But it looks like they're just tie-ins. Woo-hoo.

Right on, thanks Bruce. I still have a feeling that the more of this I read, the more I will be forced to go back and start buying trades of things that led up to this. Still need Messiah Complex as it is.

I really think you're ok, but you do what you want.

I can recommend Ellis' Astonishing and Morrison's X-Men.

04-02-2010, 09:01 AM
So you're basically saying it's not worth your money to go back and get the trades? I say your money, as if you were in my shoes and could choose to spend it or not.

I would like to check out some older X-Men stuff (aside from wanting the late 80s/early 90s stuff for my own reasons), but have no idea where to turn. What are some decent trades that don't require years of history to understand?

I would say Morisson's run and House of M for sure. For House of M all your really need to know going into it is that Wanda went batshit crazy, created two children out of thin air, and destroyed Avengers Mansion

It seems like Fraction doesn't have much to work with in terms of his artists. Hopefully Ferry changes that on Thor. Better than Land though.

Yes, as I've mentioned numerous times, Fraction usually gets dealt a bad artistic hand.
