Weird how following thirty-odd years of some stupid comic book can pay off so emotionally.
- Uncanny X-Men #131 (1979)
- All-New X-Men #11 (2013)
It’s okay if it doesn’t make sense. You kinda had to be there.
But, sometimes, being young, freaky, and confused really hurts, and it’s nice to find someone “older” who gets you.
Worth a thousand words, etc.
Astonishing X-Men Vol. 4: Unstoppable
Ugh. Wasn’t prepared for this.
Astonishing X-Men, Vol. 1: “Gifted” (2004)
Per today’s B2W. This is officially THE comic I recommend to interested new folks.
I don’t know if this is exactly my all-time favorite X-Men panel1, but a lot about is pretty perfect. Just gorgeous.

After reading this issue to my daughter, she REALLY wanted her own little BAMF.
