CBR Reviews: Wolverine & The X-Men #1, Secret Avengers #18, and Green Wake #6

Some CBR Reviews from last week – all great stuff this week – love it when it works out that way!

Wolverine & The X-Men #1

“Though the philosophical differences that drove “Schism” ultimately did not compel me, I still remained interested in what the after effects would bring in the form of a splintered X-Men on opposite coasts. The first offering comes this week in the first issue of Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo’s “Wolverine & The X-Men.” Though the book’s name leaves much to be desired (does Wolverine really have to be splashed across everything?), everything else here is pretty damn interesting…”

Secret Avengers #18

“With “Secret Avengers” #18, Warren Ellis has brought me another comic book that I’m too stupid to fully comprehend but find myself loving anyway …”

Green Wake #6

“Green Wake” was a great little mini-series that has been upgraded into an ongoing series, much to everyone’s benefit. Extending a mini-series into an ongoing doesn’t always work, but there were so many mysteries in the first arc, it’s a pleasure to see Kurtis Wiebe and Riley Rossmo go back to this intriguing concept and dig deeper…”

As always, likes and retweets are awesome, and you can read all my CBR reviews thus far here.

    I jumped aboard with Secret Avengers once Warren Ellis launched #16 with a bang. :)

    I’m tempted to take a peek at Wolverine & the X-Men just for the art alone, but I’m TOTALLY lost/behind with the mutant-world, and have been for the past 10 years. :(

    I say give it a try. Sue and I reviewed it on 3 Chicks this week, and she’s pretty unfamiliar with the whole X-World and she loved it. Try it out and let me know what you think.

    Eliis and his team of badass rotating artists are just killing these Secret Avengers standalones – glad you got on board!
