  2. The time to cull the mutant books is NOW! for me.

    At the end of AvX, I’m dropping Wolvie & the X-Babies.

  3. This is a great series, but it really needs to move away from this AvX stuff. Thankfully there’s only a month left of AvX, so this book can finally regain some of that momentum it lost with this long-winded event.

  4. Yeah, I want AvX to be over so this book can FINALLY get back on track. But I think Aaron’s handled the tie-ins quite well. And with Bachalo or Bradshaw doing ALMOST every issue still, I can’t complain.

  5. so how was this issue anyways? i still can’t make it 3 pages into a bachalo drawn book. Why the hell am i still pulling this even?

  6. I liked this issue. I have also started to really enjoy Bachalo’s artwork. I’ll take his style any day over boring, unoriginal art that we see in many other books. The linework and the shapes he uses for his figures are really interesting and actually quite pretty. The way its inked and coloured is really unique as well. I think it just takes an X-fan to accept a more anime-like style in order to appreciate it.

    I liked this issue. It really had nothing to do with AvX and is basically an origin story for that new kid leader of the Hellfire Club. It rounds out his character more and makes the whole concept of a kid-run terrorist organization seem less ridiculous.

    Should note that this probably takes place sometime between AvX 6 or 7 and is not in line with the current issue.

    Looking forward to next month with Allred and Doop!

  7. And shit… I just read on Jason Aaron’s blog that this will be Bachalo’s last issue! Drag!

  8. This was my least favorite issue so far. I love the idea of Kid Hellfire Club, but I don’t care enough about Kade to enjoy an entire back story issue. It’s a shame this was Bachalo’s last issue, since it didn’t really play to his strengths. He works best as an action artist, not an origin story artist. Still, it was solid enough. Looking forward to moving on.

  9. Bachalo rocks but this issue was total suckage! I agree with everyone, AVX needs to hurry up and finish….Im over it…this title was doing just fine.
