    I'm going to be fair on this: There's a LOT of misunderstanding of what Goth actually is, and pop culture doesn't help. I think Taylor was under the VERY common impression that Goth = moody and depressed, so now that Laura has largely healed on she shouldn't dress in that fashion. It's unfortunate, but also a widespread misconception of what the subculture is (see also: Hellion being called a "Mall Goth" in PR even though, while he went through a bad Emo phase after Second Coming, he was NEVER Goth).
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Oh look, it's Friday, time to dump on the New X-Men. :-P

    This could be on the artist(s) more than Taylor for ANW, though I totally agree re: Rosenberg and Hellion. However, people do change their style all the time, though it would be nice to have a line or something reflecting this if it is the case.

    I do think that the mixing of Athleisure and Goth styles is a good thing for Laura, and is kinda reflected in her new 'work' outfit, though it's a little bit last decade IMO compared to this:





    Here's a cool variant cover that I hadn't seen actually for comparison:

    (Thanks, XCE)

    I do think it's amusing that artists still have casual clothes for around the home be pretty presentable compared to crappy sweatpants, baggy t-shirts, weird pajamas or w/e. It's almost always super neat outfits haha.

    Iím pretty sure Taylor had a hand in it. Itís something that was consistent through multiple artists in the title, and she never dressed so plainly before.

    Iím thinking Ambaryerno is right, but I donít think itís a good excuse. Laura choosing her own fashion was a significant moment for her character and one that carried over for years. ďSheís not depressed anymore, so she shouldnít wear blackĒ is, IMO, a dumb stance to take (if thatís the reason behind it). Yeah itís a common attitude. But that doesnít make it less ignorant.

    I'm pretty sure her wardrobe was a result of Taylor and editorial's instruction to artists that Laura should not be sexualized.

    Imo her casual outfits should be something like Jessica Jones on her show.

    Which is also pretty much what her style was in some chapters of the Liu series.

    Yeah, that'd be a pretty good compromise between fashion and modesty.

    Just finished Hunt for Wolverine Adamantium Agenda

    Guess who the new ally is. (Mentioned in the summary of today's issue). I am not surprised at all.

    spoilers:
    There is an auction for a DNA related to a superhero. Laura went also undercover to the auction for the DNA. One of the participants, who voiced her disappointment, that the DNA is not Logan's, is actually Laura. It is revealed on the last page. (as ANWolverine)
    end of spoilers

    It's about damn time she got into the game. As I said in the other thread, her absence in the whole Return hoopla has been one of THE most egregious omissions.

    The ads for x23 in the physical comics got some new text on it. It reads "when her sister is taken, Laura will have to confront who she was and who she will become" and "what sinister enemy is hiding in plain sight".

    The thee in ones are going after gabby, they must be killed now.

    Surely the Cuckoos must be brainwashed? They've been stripped of their individuality, and now they're kidnapping Gabby?

    Who knows? So far we still only have one cover suggesting Laura is FIGHTING the Cuckoos, which seems to conflict with the solicits we've seen that suggests she's working WITH them.

    Also, "Sinister Enemy" makes me think either Essex or Claudine is involved.

    That was awesome. She's FINALLY IN THE GAME. And without Gabby (no offense to Gabby) she don't need to hold anything back.
