    Default Entertainment Weekly names HoX/PoX one of the "Best Comics of the Decade"

    https://ew.com/books/2019/11/21/the-...of-the-decade/

    "Screw recency bias. Jonathan Hickman’s return to superhero comics with these parallel X-Men books took the industry by storm. It’s hard to remember the last time it felt like everyone on social media was feverishly reading the same comic every Wednesday and on pins and needles waiting for the next issue. Beyond their zeitgeist-seizing power, these two books — which chronicled mutantkind’s proactive attempts to insure their survival in a world that was literally trying to extinguish them — also revitalized Marvel’s X-Men line, infusing it with thrilling and powerful ideas (those data pages!) that will surely (or hopefully) generate fantastic stories for years to come. —C.A."

    Pretty impressive to say a comic that came in the last 6 months of the decade was one of the best. I really love the energy HoX has brought to comicdom though.

    Other Marvel Titles listed:
    Hawkeye
    Ms. Marvel
    FF
    Young Avengers

    Seems fairly accurate on the Marvel side for me.

    Nice. Hickman really revitalized the X-line, and set up a rich premise in Krakoa that has so much potential. Happy to see it recognized.

    Screw recency bias indeed. I’ve already read HoX more times than I’ve read any other comic, and my heart has never soared for a comic the way it did in issue 5 of HoX. This will stand up as one of the great superhero tales.

    I bought the hardcover. Arriving this Saturday too. And it should get here on time because I didn’t buy from Amazon.

    I stopped reading Saga a few years ago. I should catch up on it.

    Just ordered the hardcover. Even though I already own the floppies I just had to have it. Love what Hickman has done for the franchise.

    I asked the Compendium which collects all issues released so far for Christmas.

    I echo all of these sentiments. I can't remember the last time I was this engrossed, enthused, & invested in the overall X-world. Hickman has truly reignited my passion for the franchise, and renewed my devotion to it. Mutant mania indeed, and I got it bad! It's an affliction I'm MORE than happy to cultivate, nurture, & SPREAD:

    Ew, that looks like glued binding on the hardcover. Some of the artwork is lost in those tight margins.

    I'm definitely enough of a fan to own all the floppies, digital copies, and this hardcover. It's so beautiful. I have to agree with Vegan Daddy that the tight margins are a little meh, but still so beautiful. I will do and buy whatever to support this new era of Krakoa. Plus, my X-Men collection is forever expanding.

    It's extremely delightful to see that the X-Men made EW's list and it was HoX/PoX chosen as its represent.

    One book on that list I still haven't read that I'm dying to read is Monstress. I'll just buy the hardcover for that too. Might as well buy it all.

    It's rad and totally worth it. I remember when Image and Vaughan suddenly announced it was releasing early; I walked into the comic shop that same day and bought it.



    *Note: I just realized I didn't need to take a selfie of me in it, but I'm just so stoned I'm so happy to spread good word about it.

    Your profile pic's hand gesture, the cover's hand gesture, your own hand gesture... Perfection.
