The CEO of global energy conglomerate Greenleaf Oil has just discovered a terrifying secret: the planet only has a decade or less of petroleum left before it's gone forever. But he has a plan to make sure his great-great grandchildren can continue to generate maximum shareholder value – and secure his own legacy in the process. Rather than develo...

Now *this* is what I wanted from Legion of X. With the crossover forcing him to focus (and a better collaborator in the tireless Paco Medina), Spurrier returns to the heights he reached in Way of X. The bloated cast is pared down here to just Mother Righteous (the best and most interesting new idea in LoX, and this is her best appearance yet) and Vox Ignis (an idea I was skeptical of in LoX, but w more

These past two issues of Wolverine feel really connected to Percy's X-Force run, and I have found that enjoyable since it is moving the collective plot of both books forward. It is nice to see Domino back in action and challenging the current state of affairs with her team members, especially with Sage, who really needs some help, and Hank, who seems to have become a full-blown villian by the end more

Wolverine #27

By: Ben Percy, Juan Jose Ryp
Released: Nov 9, 2022

ALL-NEW, ALL-SAVAGE WOLVERINE!
WOLVERINE's been sold out. BANNISTER's been duped. And when the dust settles, there's something...different about Logan. Wolverine's saga in the Krakoan era takes a savage turn with a decision - and a betrayal - that changes everything!

Oh boy, I guess I gotta back track… are there any issues you’d recommend from X force as keys to this arc?

OverlordOfAllThings - Feb 15, 2023

Well Beast has been on a downward slide ever since the beginning of X-Force, so starting there would allow you to see the decent as it gradually builds. Percy is the kind of writer that these kinds of things are slowly revealed over time so it will pop up in an issue for a page or two, then not be mentioned for a bit. Beast's behavior becomes really obvious in X-Force #34 though if you want to jump ahead to where the current stuff with Wolverine comes into play and continue from there.

I picked up the first for the art alone, and was surprised by the writing. The second is continuing to bring depth to the writing that I didn’t expect.

I think I just didn’t expect the 2 page scene in AXE 4 to be the full resolution for Uranos. And, seeing Uranos on the cover of next week’s Legion, I’m guessing Ewing wants Spurrier to finish his setup. I’ll withhold my judgement until then ;)
