    X of Swords started out interesting(the Wolverine and Storm issues mostly), but now I'm just ready to see some action. It's getting pretty boring now.

    This is the nicest thing I’ve seen you say about the current era. I’m glad there was finally something you enjoyed. I’m being genuine here.
    You brought back Wolverine

    Huh? I've been enjoying the current era for the most part(Wolverine and X-Force mostly). I didn't think I posted enough for some to notice any of my negative posts and that's only when I see negative posts concerning Logan lol.

    Maybe I’m confusing you with another poster. But I feel like every review thread you post that you didn’t enjoy the book. Although as a mod I try and peek in on every thread occasionally so maybe I’m seeing something that’s not there also. Either way my mistake.

    If I don't see a cool ass fight scene involving swords soon I'm gonna scream. I'm enjoying the story but it's starting to feel like this just gonna be 22 chapter's of exposition for Apocalypse.

    So the colors are quite gorgeous but at the same time...seeing the same penciler go from Marte Gracia to another colorist feels like a stepdown.

    Not sure how to better describe it. But this feels like they took classic Apocalypse and gave his personality to Genesis in order to make the retooled Apocalypse who stands there more sympathic looking.

    I'm almost feeling sorry for him, but I love that Apocalypse is finally being bitten back for all he did. That soul crushing pain is the least he deserves. I really hope he continues to grow from this.
    Yeah its like that sometimes lol

    Exactly- he's dealing with people that learned this ideology for him and stayed in a perpetual state of war for thousands of years, but yet didn't experience loss and defeat like he saw over and over for mutantkind. For all the talk, his family and children wouldn't last long on Earth, because they didn't learn to be flexible- even if the X-men didn't stop them, some of the other heroes would, and even if they didn't, the machines would (hell, they did in life 9).

    We get it. Apocalypse isn't the biggest jerk ever anymore. Laying it kinda thick. Sheesh.

    It is the same artist, He was the same graphic artist who did HOX/POX. I feel bad I can't remember his name. Excellent work regardless

    Yeah it's Tom Muller who does the graphic design of the books including intro pages, logos and stuff, so I guess that includes data pages too

    Preview looks stunning

    Its strange. There is a massive gap in quality, its hard to explain. The art is still quite good but it seems Gracia elevated Asrar's work to a new level it seems. I was just staring in awe at how vibrant the colors looked on Famine/Death in Stasis.
