Users who pulled this comic:


  1. This arc would best suit the Cho Wolverine book. I’m losing interest in WATXM really quick.

    Get back to the zany wacky school stuff, broo, quire and the hellfire club stuff. I get Aaron had some unfinished buisness after the Astonishing Spiderman/wolverine mini but this just ins’t the place for it IMHO.

    • You may have a number of good points there, but I trust Jason to keep it tight and relevant to the overarching themes.

      I wasn’t sure about introducing Dog and I’m still not, but Aaron has seen us right for 2 years worth of comics, so I am definitely going to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    • i enjoyed dog being back, but the savage land is killing me.
      despise that place.
      but LOVE this book when it’s at the school.

    • ever think of dropping it? reread the doop issue.

  2. THIS is the arc I’ll remember for years to come? Dog (an awful character), plus robots from the future, dinosaurs, cowboys and indians, and cavemen? The students using guns instead of their powers? Yikes. I REALLY can’t wait until they get back to the Hellfire Club arc, and hopefully they haven’t lost be completely before that happens.

    • I agree with you that something just isn’t hitting for me with this book lately. In this issue in particular, I thought the high points were great, but the low points were pretty bad.

      However, I think we’re witnessing some major character development in this arc. Dog and the Savage Land have taken the kids totally out of their element and the flashbacks to Wolverine’s advice to each of the kids seem to be setting up some big stuff for their characters going forward. Evan’s struggle with nature vs nurture, the new Sprite’s pressure to be the greatest, Quentin’s slow ascent into a really good leader, Shark-Girl’s struggle with her feral nature, and even Glob Herman’s turn toward villainy all get some play here.

    • I really hope there’s a good payoff coming in the next issue because this is on the chopping block for me…I just find myself not caring enough about the characters and getting a bit bored. Still haven’t been able to wash the bad taste of that Frankenstein Circus arc out of my mouth…

    • @Billington: Also, Aaron is known for using hyperbole. Calling this arc the “arc that will be remembered for years to come” is kind of like Kirkman plastering “The Greatest Comics Magazine In The Universe!” on every Invincible cover, or putting teasers out that say “Death of Everyone” despite having no intention to kill every character. It’s commentary. It’s harkening back to the bombastic lingo of the Stan Lee days. It’s tongue in cheek.

  3. This was back to being fun unlike the last two issues!

  4. I keep waiting for this to get back to let’s best but 9 issues later and it’s still nowhere near. I’m enjoying the artwork but the story has taken a massive nosedive.
