Why did Marvel do this?
Old Man Logan (2016-) #19 - Jeff Lemire,Filipe Andrade,Andrea Sorrentino

Usually they're good about filling in the holes if you haven't read the series, which seems like a good marketing strategy since they give these away for free with the digital uploads of your regular comic purchases.   This time, I had no idea what happened: Wolverine specifically mentions an incident with Jean Grey going into his head that kicks all this off, and I have no fragging idea what happened. 


Overall, it didn't impact the heavily emotional and emotive story about Wolverine wanting to go back to the future he came from, to save the baby he didn't mean to abandon, but did when he left.   The whole 'we won't help you to preserve the timeline' by all the magicians is both understandable and heartbreaking, especially since many of these are friends, many of whom he's worked with before.   

 

Not sure I'll continue with this storyline, but it was a fun, free read.   The problem is Marvel does enough stuff that I like that I have to weed out some excellent stories for the ones that strike me more, that fill an emotional or mental need I have.

Yes!
Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX (2015) #4 (Giant-Size Little Marvel- AvX (2015)) - Skottie Young,Skottie Young

The Guardians of the Galaxy and the Inhumans get involved as the fight over the twins spills over to everyone. 

 

Funny, charming, just gorgeous art - pencils, inks, colors, everything - this is a perfect mini-series.  I need to remember I own this on Comixology whenever I need to cheer myself up.   Love, love, love!

I'm rereading this series for apparently one panel of Black Bolt
Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX (2015) #1 (Giant-Size Little Marvel- AvX (2015)) - Skottie Young,Skottie Young

Worth it.   This is Skottie Young's take on AvX: all the heroes are children and they're fighting over things like burnt toys, and who gets the new twins in town X-Men or Avengers.   It's adorable, and it sidesteps all the real reasons the Avengers versus X-Men were really fighting: to save the world, because they thought they knew what was best, the same reasons as ever, really. 

 

Still, you'd think the lack of tension would hurt this title, but it only adds to my delight.   How wonderful to see these childish version of these heroes.   Young take every opportunity he can to make a bad pun, or throw in a reference to the heroes origins stories, that he can, too, and this adds another layer to the storyline.  

 

There's enough warmth and humor that I end up caring about this silly little street fight, even knowing what it was really based on, and how serious those issues of freedom versus safety were, and still are. 

 

Love, love, love this series.

Gross
Doctor Strange (2015-) #23 - Dennis Hopeless,Niko Henrichon

More Secret Empire.   So gross.   Especially the whole Wilson Fisk thing.  I'm over this all right now.   

 

I wish I could give this whole event and all the tie-ins negative stars.

To Marvel
Doctor Strange (2015-) #22 - Dennis Hopeless,Niko Henrichon,Chris Bachalo

You keep shoving the Secret Empire tie-in in my regularly read comics.   I hate SE.   It's gross.   It's all gross. 

 

It's particularly fucking heinous that you force Doctor Strange to work with Wilson Fisk.  I'm gonna give a big, fucking middle finger to that bullshit.   So here's your one half star, which apparently you've been begging for.  Fuck that bullshit.   Fuck it all.
