Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #470

Hunt for Wolverine #1 (of 1) — Writer: Charles Soule;  Art: David Marquez and Paulo Siquiera;  Colors: Rachelle Rosenberg, Walden Wong and Ruth Redmond Thanos Annual #1 — Creators: Various True Believers: Carol Danvers #1 (of 1) — Writer: Roy Thomas;  Art: Gene Colan Hunt for Wolverine is one of those surprised-that-it’s-good books; it’s the intro to four different mini-series that continue the story through August, followed by a wrap-up, so it could have been just a naked cash-grab, but instead it’s a decent old-school X-Men tale with Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler and Kitty fighting the Reavers over Logan’s adamantium-covered corpse, … Continue reading

Standard recap: I’m slowly going through AABC’s one-million-plus back-issue room, restocking the boxes on the sales floor and pulling stuff to sell as discount/overstock/special items (these are featured at the discount racks at the west end of the store for two weeks after each post, and then go to the discount racks on the east end of the store for a few weeks, and then disappear into our warehouses, so get them while you can). I’m going through the alphabet backwards (don’t ask), and at my speed (especially with the school semester in full gear), this amounts to a two-year … Continue reading
