By Way of Trade: All Star Western

All Star Western : Jonah Hex

While hanging out in my LCS Comics2Games and spying the giant wall of New 52 Titles, I spied All Star Western #1 and I knew I wanted it. Nonetheless my hands were already full of too many New 52 titles and I was reluctant to break the bank any further. I passed. Here I am now staring down at a copy of All Star Western: Guns & Gotham knowing I couldn’t pass it up a second time. I read on. This is the sound of me kicking myself.

Musings on ‘Wolverine and the X-Men’

Wolverine and the X-Men

I love Wolverine and the X-Men.  

Sure, sometimes it seems like there are at least 283 X-Men titles and about 342 other comics that feature Wolverine in some way, shape, or form each month, but I dig this one the most. Why? Well let’s start with the absolutely brilliant writing from Jason Aaron, who has managed to make the story of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning a hell of a fun read that I’d rank up there with anything on the shelves these days. I’ve always been a fan of writers who are able to juggle action, comedy, and off-the-wall ideas in their storytelling, and Aaron manages this exceptionally well.
