*Obie, through his dabbling in arcane magics mixed with ancient corrupt business practices, has had not just the colors of his fur switched, but a complete overhaul of his work ethic as well…I think I’m kinda okay with the mishap.

Friday Slice of Heaven
Powers of X event and boy howdy is it ever. We already had the revelations stemming from Moira MacTaggert’s newly revealed mutant power—a mutant power that still has my thoughts whirring with what would I do if I had this ability?—and now we finally understand what we first viewed back in House of X #1 when Professor Xavier (if it actually is him) stands amongst a group of naked mutants newly hatched from golden eggs. Boom. Bop. Pow. My mind is blown yet again and I absolutely love this new revelation. Now, I’m not going to spoil exactly what is going on with this major plot point—it seems every comic site on the internet is all too eager to do that—but I will say that seeing Apocalypse come into the fold was both shocking and exciting and succeeded in raising my interest in continuing with the X-Men after this fantastic event concludes. I’m also somewhat traumatized by the supplemental material (which you absolutely should NOT skip) regarding Proteus and what it costs him to be part of Professor Xavier’s plan; it’s kind of messed up. Only three issues are left and I am dying with anticipation of how this is all going conclude, and that House of X/Powers of X hardcover that drops in December is looking to be a must-have for the ol’ favorite bookshelf. Can I be any clearer on how much I am loving this event comic, Denizens? If you are a Jonathan Hickman fan and are excited by a complex, intense, and thought-provoking X-Men comic, then you simply must read this excellent series.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Venom then you definitely should be reading this five-issue miniseries.
Guardians fan or are interested in the current state of Marvel’s cosmic comics, then you can and should catch up with the first trade.
That’s it for now, Denizens. This slug is heading out to go for a run and shake off the doldrums of the past week. Heck, I might even set aside a few hours today to continue my reread of the tremendous Chew series from Image. Thank you for reading.
