All-New X-Men #2
There are some interesting elements at play here. I love the first meeting between the two different Icemen. Young Hank McCoy’s fear about his future fate makes a lot of sense. Wolverine’s reaction to Cyclops and Jean’s re-appearance makes sense and immediately sets up some interesting conflicts. But man, this book is $3.99 and nothing is really happening other than Beast repeatedly explaining what he wants from the young X-Men!
I’m giving this one more issue, and then I’m going to wait for digital sales. The pacing is driving me nuts! I want to see Cyclops as the head of the Brotherhood facing down the X-Men! Not watch the young X-Men get caught up on continuity.
Stuart Immonen’s artwork is gorgeous, as always. Just too many talking heads for my taste!
