Clunky
Inhumans (1975-1977) #1 - Doug Moench,George Perez,Gil Kane,Frank Giacoia,I. Watanabe

Man, the old style of writing for comics can get clunky.   So, so clunky.   There's more nuance nowadays: a little more trust of the audience, so not everything has to be said quite as plainly as it is.   

 

Still, I want to see what happens to that lady who went through Terrigenesis, but there was too much going on: two big threats, which meant all action and no real character development which was one of the reasons this was rated so low.   

 

I did like the art, but I also didn't think it was the best art I'd seen in a comic.   I prefer the recent comics, though, with more of an emphasis on characters.

The X-Men and the Inhumans start a war
Death Of X (2016) #2 (of 4) - Jeff Lemire,Charles Soule,Aaron Kuder

They don't actually fight here: even when Crystal has Dusaike take down the X-Men, it's more that he can't save everyone from a riot, and violence, without doing so.   Crystal assures him that she'll take responsibility and Storm will understand, since the Inhumans had just tried to help save mutants from the Terrigent Mist cloud.   (That is grammatically correct: Terrigen Mist is what it's called, and it's also a free ranging cloud at the moment.   Before it was contained.)

 

Cyclops, who believes that the Inhumans lied about the Mist being safe, warns the world, a world that had been accepting of the Inhumans, making them mistrust Crystal, Medusa and the rest.   

 

Medusa doesn't want to start a war, but knowing what she does?   She knows one is likely to come, and perhaps inevitable.   If it comes to the mutants or her people, she's choosing her people and wants to plan to win a war that she doesn't want to take part in at all. 

 

The tension, the misunderstandings, the paranoia?   I understand it.   Each side has been used, manipulated, chased out of their homes.   Someone has tried to kill both Inhumans and mutants at many points, and so I understand, and sympathize with both sides.   Still, it's making me want to make things better because I feel so much for both sides - and I want to clear up the misunderstandings, try to help them both. 

 

I know how this is going to end, though, and it's going to get a lot uglier before anything good can happen.

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!

Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX (2015) #3 (Giant-Size Little Marvel- AvX (2015)) - Skottie Young,Skottie Young

Cute, funny, and that combined with the bright colors - think the cover, but for a whole comic - make me smile and forget all my anxiety.

I got to the one panel of Black Bolt
Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX (2015) #2 (Giant-Size Little Marvel- AvX (2015)) - Skottie Young,Skottie Young

It's in this issue, and it made me giggle.   But I giggled through reading all first two issues, so...

 

I'm really loving this series, and I it keeps up the funny in-jokes, the warmth, the heart, that made the first issue so much fun.   Petty fights between child-versions of Avengers and the X-Men are the best, especially with Young writing and illustrating.  

 

I'm off to read issue three.
