… small gay moments?
we’re about an inch away from hot lesbian sex in the hallways
if the whole school doesn’t think you and your best friend are fucking you’re doing it wrong
My best friend is my ex though…
I’ve gotten all of these over the course of three days. My first foray into the Marvel universe (other than the current Gambit title). Let’s just talk about all three, okay?
I got X-Men: Origins vol. 1 off of Amazon. I do love an origin story, especially because I love Beast, Colossus, and Gambit. I’m not a huge fan of Jean’s story but I was never too into Jean Grey anyway (sorry—I’m basing this off the X-Men cartoon; she’s pretty boring in that). Also, I’m not too into the artwork in her story either. All in all, I enjoyed it.
With the money I saved on X-Men: Origins, I decided to get X-Men: Fairy Tales. It was definitely a chance and I wasn’t expecting much but I actually really liked it. I thought it was a fun take on fairy tales and folklore using the X-Men characters. I was looking forward to the Rogue and Gambit story but man, the art in it is horrendous. The story itself was nice but that art, man. It’s really bad. But like I said, I enjoyed it.
I got both of them off of Amazon from Boondock Collectibles and Stalking Moon Comics, respectively. Super fast shipping. I ordered them on Friday night and got them on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Based on that, I recommend those sellers.
Lastly, I got Astonishing X-Men #62. This was also a chance. I never read any of the X-Men serials before, or any Marvel title before I started reading Gambit a little while ago. So I had no idea where they were in the story. I decided to just get the latest issue and if I liked it, I’d get any of the older issues from the comic shop in Arbutus since I’ve had luck in finding old issues there before. But what luck! #62 is the start of a new story arc!
I got this at Big Planet in College Park. I usually go there because it’s closer to my house and has a better selection of new titles.
I still want to go over to Third Eye in Annapolis because it’s a huge place and I really like it. It’s just a little far. Maybe next time I’m in Annapolis Mall, I’ll head down there.
So yeah! 90’s kids, do not rewatch X-Men: The Animated Series out of pure nostalgia. This might happen. Next week, I’ll be getting the next issue of Gambit.
