Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Issue #23 starring X-23, get it? *badum chhhhh*

  2. This title has been consistently great. The new arc is off to a good start.

  3. Also Stryker’s sexual preference is revealed.

  4. Love the cover for this! I hope they keep X-23 as a regular on the team since they’re canning her book.

  5. I like X-23 so I might give this a try. I also haven’t read a comic drawn by Tom Raney in a while.

  6. Thank god they might finally explain what happened at the end of issue #21. I enjoyed #22 with the Quicksilver and Magneto dialogue, but #21 ended with such a cliffhanger that it would be a shame to keep us guessing for too long! Thank you Mr. Gage for keeping up the pace!

  7. Im jaded. I love AA. Great series, But X23 Belongs to Marjorie Liu. Its just… Her charactor. I don’t know how to feel about this :S Happy and Sad all at the same time.

  8. COME ON!!! More people need to pick this book up! It’s so good. So much fun.

  9. who’s x-23 gonna hook up with?

  10. I thought this was a Greg Land cover, and he traced Miley Cyrus.

  11. Gave this issue a try but it wasn’t for me.

  12. Well this issue was just a mess. Too much going on, could have held X-23 off untill next issue.
    Kinda disapointed in AA for the first time in a long time.

  13. this was trying way to hard to be an “emotional gut punch” issue. I really found the teen angst / skeletons in the closet to be contrived and expected. One of the first AA issues in a while that i found disappointing. Loved the series so far, but if its going to turn into teens crying about their past then i’ll be dropping it.

  14. Stryker’s news would be considered big had it occurred in the 80s. The set up mirrors reality nicely, but it didn’t make me care.

    The Reptil stuff has potential.

  15. Big Rom fan here, love the return of Hybrid!

  16. Loved this book since the beginning, very worried about Grummett taking over on art. I thought he was decent in the 80s and 90s, but his work on X-Men Forever was atrocious. But I love Gage’s writing, I’m not going anywhere

  17. Another character coming out of the closet?? Not for me. Dropping it.
