So many comics this week – and so much news on the cinematic universes! Plus, an interview with Mike Carey!
This week’s releases
We also saw a bevy of X-Men comics. All-New X-Factor continued, with the ever-popular Peter David enjoying using his new cast; All-New X-Men launched into the trial of Jean Grey, with Jean kidnapped by the Shi’ar; Marvel Knights: X-Men continued; and Brian Wood upped the ante in his ever-phenomenal X-Men series. But oddly enough, the highlight to me was this month’s Wolverine and the X-Men.
Wolverine and the X-Men has been a bit of a disappointment to me recently, with Jason Aaron seeming to lose his focus. In this issue, though, he presents a rather understated issue in which there is, quite simply, superb character development for Cyclops and Wolverine – and the first hint at the resolution of the long-running Schism plotline!
