IMG_7997We are continuing along with our Marvel X-Men event of the year, The Apocalypse Wars and now we are finally getting into the All-New X-Men series that features writing from Dennis Hopeless and artwork from Mark Bagley. Mark Bagley is also the guy who did the cover for the All-New X-Men #9 issue which by the way is the one that we are covering for today. In this issue, Hank is still trying to figure out a way to get time travelling going again after help from Doctor Strange sent him and the X-Men to a time they didn’t want to be in. Meanwhile, Evan is having a birthday party that he isn’t exactly excited for, but he does something that will send him and Hank on an adventure somewhere they didn’t bargain for and we find out something crucial about Evan.

IMG_7999.PNGI thought this issue story wise was ok, I do however like where it is going for sure because it gets real interesting right at the end. The only thing that gets me is the names they choose for certain characters like pickles. Is he a pet or an X-Man? Other than that, I am kind of Ok with everything else. The comic may come off at first like Evan is just whining about everything, but there is a definite reason for that and you have to pay attention because it shows up again later. The artwork for this comic series is pretty good and pretty fair to the X-Men and how you would expect them to look. I love the imagery of Apocalypse which is why I decided to do this event anyways. The panels are easy to follow along for anyone looking to get into the series. You definitely have to check this one out for sure and follow along with the rest of them. Check out my grades below:
