Not a whole lot this time around – this weekend was pretty crazy!!
Wolverine & The X-Men TPB #3
Well, if you were to read this Trade by itself, it would be the most confusing thing in the world. All of these stories, except for the last one, seem to always fall in between issues of Avengers Vs. X-Men. Reading it by itself, you would have no idea why Scott and his group went insane, why we went from Hope going to the moon to Hope trying to be smuggled away by Black Widow. Luckily for me, I decided to try and read AvX in tandem with this book, so I had an idea of what was going on…but it makes for a kind of sad Trade. I won’t judge too harshly, because if AU says anything, it’s that events aren’t always what they’re hyped up to be. I’ll get through this one and the next one, and probably start making decisions based on where the story picks up afterwards.
Final Opinion: Iffy
Avengers Vs. X-Men
So I FINALLY got around to reading this whole thing. I’ve had all of these issues sitting around for a while, but it was always on the bottom of the pile. Reading Wolverine & the X-Men kind of forced me to read this as well 🙂 All in all, this wasn’t a bad story – certainly not as bad as I’ve heard from some people. I think it might be somewhat better than AU currently is (though AU is starting to pick up) Now, I’m fully aware that I got to read this entire thing from beginning to end without having to wait two or three weeks between issues, which may have made the whole thing go down easier. I also totally agree that the storytelling wasn’t great and was rather inconsistent from issue to issue because of the changing writers every issue. I understand why it was done…but it did make for some interesting reading sometimes. But read as a whole, it wasn’t bad. Answers a couple of questions that I’ve had and, being this far out from when this story happened, you can see the ripple effects that this had on a lot of series – which was the point, but I find that interesting to look at!
Final Opinion: Solid
