  1. Nice!

    The first X-Men Noir was really good. Lente was able to weave in a compelling Noir setting with established characters. It wasn’t like the Spider-Man Noir, where it was just a retelling of Peter’s origins with a 1930’s setting. So I am looking forward to this mini, maybe in trade though cause I think the Noir books read better all collected.

  2. Great chat you guys had about another book you have tempted to pick up , might even look for the trade of the first story. Also have to say cracking music who ever picked the track.

  3. I disliked the first X-Men Noir because the art made it unreadable (too damn dark!)

  4. Ok, this made me want to check this out

  5. The story sounds pretty cool. It makes me want to go back and read the first mini, but I don’t know how it is.

  6. Think I’m gonna pass on this one.
