It’s a real shame that Bendis can’t keep writing Defenders, because this is a brilliant series. It’s funny. It’s exciting. It’s gorgeous to look at. But, sadly it looks like #10 is the last issue. I’m going to miss it.
I’ve tried to drop X-Men Blue a couple of times now, but those Art Adams’ covers … I know. I’m weak. Thankfully, he’s only doing them until #22 next month.
X-men Gold/ Blue: Mojo Worldwide (#13-15 of both books) - was kinda fun in an old school X-Crossover way. But, entirely skippable.
X-Men Blue #16-20 “Cross Time Capers”, on the other hand, was really quite decent, as the O5 travel through time and meet up with the X-Men 2099, old school Generation X, and Bendis’ Brotherhood (from his All New X-Men). In doing so, Bunn manages to rectify the horrendous ending to the Hopeless All New X-Men book, by restablishing the “O5” as the O5. Yay!
