This is a story that is defined by one word- unexpected. i did not expect a flashback sequence with Logan to open the story, or a heartfelt and actually FUN team-up with Squirrel Girl, or for Gabby and Laura to come to any sort of an agreement on their living arrangement. I loved this issue so much, but THAT was to be expected. This is such a good story, and i love seeing x-23 getting a chance to shine in the void left by Logan. The humor in this issue is palpable, from Logan’s talk of Galactus stepping on picket fences and sandwiches (then Laura’s attempted reprisal of the joke at the end of the story, to no avail) to Squirrel Girl showing up with a real, live wolverine in order to give x-23 the “animal perspective” on the situation at hand. Then SG and x-23 team-up to rescue a squirrel dad and return him to his family, which leads to some hilarious banter between the two awesome ladies. then we return the papa squirrel to his fam, and the issue ends with Squirrel Girl giving Laura a bit of the advice she was too proud to take herself (in the form of a hijacked squirrel-speech monologue) and the end of the issue gives us a nice moment between the two Wolverine clones, and a hopeful look ahead, so that these two can become embroiled in whatever crapstorm comes their way in Civil War II. This book is fantastic, and yet another reason to trust that Tom Taylor can write just about whatever he wants, and do it VERY well.
