Unexpectedly, I can’t stop thinking about Kieron Gillen (writer) and Valerio Schiti (artist)’s A.X.E.: Judgement Day. It’s unexpected because, while I love Gillen as a writer and adore Schiti’s art, of the three teams involved, I only regularly read Avengers. I often avoid team books (as they lead to lots of tie-ins) but I read Avengers because I’ll read anything Jason Aaron writes. However, I didn’t expect this story to connect to his run (and it didn’t). Then, while I feel Eternals is the most gorgeously shot Marvel movie yet, I’ve never read any Eternals comics – now or in my youth. Lastly, I LOVED the X-Men as a kid but I’ve really struggled to find a story to pull me back into the mutant world since returning to reading comics in 2015. I dropped X-Men: Gold (Vol. 2) by issue #6. I dug X-Men: Red (Vol. 1) but the run ended before I knew it existed. I’ve tried to read Jonathan Hickman’s House of X and Powers of X twice but lost interest a few issues in each time. Maybe I can’t go home again with the X-Men :/. So, I was intrigued by the idea but didn’t expect this story to really grab me. OH MY GOSH WAS I WRONG. I’ve read it twice (once as it came out monthly and then all at once) and can’t stop thinking about what I’d do if I knew the world was going to end tomorrow. See?? How can a story with a hook like that not captivate me?!?
