Don’t miss out! Sabretooth and Wolverine come to blows (and scratches), in a drag-out, no holds barred battle to the death. Wolvie may have gone too far, even by his own standards!

A little bit all over the place but the Shatterstar and Rictor scene was actually surprisingly well written, especially considering the time period this comic was made. Hated the Reignfire/Bobby plot twist though. End of an underrated era by Fabian Nicieza

Best issue of Ellis’ run yet. The ole “Genosha’s in a Civil War lets go” is most definitely getting old but I think Ellis is setting up some interesting stuff up with Pete Wisdom and Rory. First issue that I didn’t mind Britanic either

I must admit, I hated the Adam X character before this issue, and I still do. He’s everything wrong with the 90s. Nicieza made me care about him just a little bit more. Really great and wholesome issue, really loved Philip here too. 90s X-Men art has a horrible rep, but this was easily that era’s prime. Terry Dodson, Roger Cruz, Carlos Pacheco, Joe Madueira, Andy Kubert, and Steve Epting were more

Another 10/10 issue by Lobdell. Loved it. The scenes between Bobby and Rogue are great and he perfectly writes the relationship between two broken characters in Warren and Betsy. All while setting up Legion Quest. Shoutout Steve Epting for the great art

X-Men Annual 3 is a very pleasant surprise. Edginton does a great job of writing Ororo and exploring what makes her tick, and I love how her dynamic with the Professor is explored. Gene Ha’s art is so sophisticated and detailed and I wish he had worked on more X-Men during his time
