Uncanny X-Men #10 - WTF?

Greetings readers,

I must say: I love the current X-Men titles by Brian Michael Bendis. Uncanny X-Men is fun and All-New X-Men is really interesting; indeed, in spite of the way they’ve realllllly gone out of their way to stretch short story arcs into many issues and separate me from even more of my money, I dig what they’re doing!

However, I have a complaint. I don’t like to call out artists and I’ve kept my mouth shut on some of the guest artist issues in spite of how bad I thought the panels looked. The latest issue of Uncanny X-Men is full of characters that are barely recognizable.

What do you guys think? Am I being overly critical or are some of these choices really horrible and disappointing?


Please share your thoughts on the artwork in the comments - and let me know (honestly) if you think I’m overly critical.


Anyway, here’s the comic book code for #10:


Enjoy - and remember to share your codes, here or on your favorite forum. My current favorite forum is the one over on Google+ -- they are great about sharing content and the members of the forum are active in discussions about all kinds of topics and many different comic book publishers. By the way, the inside artwork shown above isn’t a scan of my own book (I hate the creases from putting comics into my scanner!) and instead is from Comic Book Resources, a superb website. The original image appears here.


Until next time,

The Utopia Crossover - Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men!!

Dearest readers,
Sorry for the delay in CROSSOVER ARC link lists, but I’m finally back at it for August and here’s a fun one - the Utopia arc.
After a ballot initiative for limiting reproductive rights of mutants is proposed, all hell breaks loose. Check out this reading order courtesy of the fine folks at Uncanny X-Men dot Net.
Utopia Chapter 1 -> Dark Avengers / Uncanny X-Men: Utopia
Interlude -> X-Men Legacy #226 and #227
Utopia Chapter 2 -> Uncanny X-Men #513
Utopia Chapter 3 -> Dark Avengers #7
Utopia Chapter 4 -> Uncanny X-Men #514
Utopia Chapter 5 -> Dark Avengers #8
Utopia Chapter 6 -> Dark Avengers / Uncanny X-Men: Exodus
I hope you find the story as interesting as I have. This is a pretty interesting story IMHO, with some great art like the panel below.


The Kindle version is available on Amazon, but the paperback and hard cover versions are only available through third parties at much higher costs. Click the image below for more information!


Until next time,

UPDATE: Check out the Confession for even more behind-the-scenes Emma Frost/Scott Summers stuff!
