    Kinda disappointed Marauders didn’t make the Top 10 in sales :-( damn it. I really thought people liked it.

    She’s the most interesting and least obnoxious she’s ever been.

    Marauders #1 was at number 10 last week.
    Makes sense it'll drop out of top 10 at issue #2.
    He is the rock that their island nation is built upon. The people of Krakoa know him and what he has done for them over the years, and they look up to him. He might not be RULING Krakoa, but he is definitely leading it.

    I love what Duggan is doing with Kate. It’s a direction I’ve wanted to see her go in for a while now.

    Whenever you have a team book and the only impactful narrative is..."Hey, look everyone Kitty is much more badass than everybody else is" well, stuff happens. If Duggans is this great writer, you would think that he would understand the difference between fanfiction and solid development of character dynamics. The snark comes off as flat in this book. Just writer and give some freakin balance, and some balls to characters not named "Kate" hopefully the book won't start to build momentum in a downward trajectory.

    I don't know what Marauders book you're reading but...I've read and re-read several times now and that's not the ONLY impactful narrative.
    You may want to reread with a broader perspective...or not...just a suggestion.

    Do we know how it sold overall for issue 2?

    X-twitter loved this issue but X-twitter much like these and other forums aren't representative of the larger buying (or pirating) community so we've been told over and over again. It will be interesting to see how it does every month sales wise. Online fans might love it but will the so called Wednesday warriors pick it up.

    I think it might just be how it's presented, to be honest, which is fair enough. I'm kinda on the fence about dropping it too, to be honest. Intrigued about what's going on, but...eh...something's just missing somewhere...

    Enh...
    Readers generally go into a book with very specific biases (I hate/love/don't care about...insert character...), wants and expectations that very rarely have anything to do with what the writer is presenting within the pages.
    And if they are already pre-disposed in some way negatively towards the story...chances are they will see only what they want to see/read and interpret that accordingly.
    I have my baises towards certain characters but I am also able to look past/beyond those to the story as a whole and make my judgments as such, based on what's on the page in front of me.

    Marauders #5 Dark Phoenix Variant.

    Fair enough, everyone is entitled to their opinion. I think everyone going to get tattooed was a great addition to the story that allowed for a fun moment of camaraderie.

    I agree with y'all, it's a great new phase for the character.
