    First off, if you haven’t been following the story or ‘Original Sin‘ this is a great jumping in point to the comic. The latest iteration of Nova has been a hit or miss on storytelling in both his own book and in the latest take on the ‘New Warriors,’ but Gerry Duggan has been shown […]

    The last run of ‘Wolverine and the X-Men’ was so strong that I feel the current run has been stretching to feel even half as entertaining or meaningful for its entire run.
