  1. Man, how often is this coming out. Not that I am complaining.

  2. Damn I was looking forward to Opena coming back for this.  Oh well, writing is still stellar

  3. 2 artists now? I love the book, but they could do for slowing down and getting more consistent art. So bizarre how it started off with a great Opena run, and now its art by comittee. 

  4. @wallythegreenmonster  Just one artist. Andrew Currie is the inker.

  5. I remember when it took almost two months for #2 to come out, I nearly dropped the book thinking it’d be one of those titles you never see. Silly me.

  6. Opena’s probably more talented, but I liked Ribic’s style more. That said, I think they’ve done a good enough job getting the different artists to match the stories.

    Really looking forward to this.

    The issue after this isn’t scheduled till the END OF JULY, though, so there’s going to be quite a wait between issues all of a sudden.

  7. @conor  —ahhhhh thanks. Its funny when they do that, always confusing unless you recognize the names. At any rate i would still love to see a consistent art run on this book again. Opena’s art and the colors from the first few issues helped make it great. 

    I’m sure i’ll enjoy this anyways

  8. no more tan! YEESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

  9. @dent309  no kidding


  11. solid issue. nice dialog moments. The art was better than expected..i expect next issue out by the weekend. =)

  12. I LOLd at the Green Lantern Milk commercial at the back. I can’t believe they allow that.

  13. I love this book but I feel like I need to read AoA in order to enjoy it more. Too bad the first damn volume is out of print.

  14. @Mustbedamned  -AoA?

  15. @wallythegreenmonster  

     Age of Apocalypse 

  16. @NathanNicdao  I wonder if it could be a “Ryan Reynolds is playing Deadpool and Green Lantern” joke?

  17. @DoctorDP  Or Marvel going “We support ya, bud, even though you left us, well, we gave you Deadpool, they gave you GL. We can’t really blame ya. Here’s our apology.”

  18. Freaking fantastic! And another great cliffhanger ending.

  19. Fantastic as per usual. I really have no idea what is going to happen next and I love it.

  20. Visiting the AoA is perfect for this team.  I didn’t completely realize that until I read this issue.  I didn’t read those issues but I was also thinking, oh yea, Psylocke and AoA Creed where on the Exiles together.  I didn’t think Billy Tan was all that bad but I expected Mark Brooks to bring the art quality back up and he did.  Looks great with the Dean White colors.

  21. @stasisbal  yeah mark brooks really shined in this one, loved his layouts and he sure did justice to the world of AoA. the cityscape looked amazing.

  22. @Mustbedamned  RE: AoA – The back issues are surprisingly easy to find. I had missed everything but the main two X-Books (Astonishing & Amazing) when they were coming out and the rest were readily available.

  23. @RoiVampire..Agreed. Mark Brooks did an execellent job. Nice to see nightcrawler. The colorsists on this book have been spot on on setting the mood. Always a good read.

  24. This was the best Mark Brooks work I’ve ever seen, and Psylocke finally looks hot again.

  25. Art was surprisingly good and the story moved along well, definitely pulled me in. A lot of continuity in this one, between Exiles and AoA. You can read it fine without knowing any of it, but there is a lot of stuff going on the casusal reader probably misses (for instance, Wolverine and Jean were serious lovers in AoA and Wolverine had only one hand).
