Moving in 9 days, plus comic of May 22, 2019

I take possession of my house in 9 days. I think that means I can start getting excited. With the exception of meeting up with my real estate lawyer (he’s waiting for information from the seller) and packing some more, I’m all set. I’ve even got internet ready to go the minute I walk in. Of course I had one of my final appointments this afternoon after work. Even though I only picked up one comic today, I still don’t have much time to write more than a first impressions post for it.

I’m hoping to see Avengers: Endgame a second time this weekend so I can write my blogathon post about it, but there’s a chance I won’t get to see it until sometime after I move, if that. After my Endgame post whenever it is, I’m planning on toning down the large blogathons to start doing theme months, at least for a while. That doesn’t mean I won’t still do blogathons – I have a couple more that I’d like to do. But I feel like it’s better to mix things up a bit. Thanks to fellow blogger “coffee, classics & craziness” and her plan to do a multi-blogger D-day blogathon, I’m thinking of doing a month of war movies in June, starting with Saving Private Ryan. I’d also like to do a theme month at some point for Robin Williams movies, biographical movies and legendary bad movies. And after I move, I might even sprinkle in a couple video game posts here and there.

Anyway, I picked up Mr. and Mrs. X 11 today. Here are my first impressions.

It’s good. This issue focuses mostly on what’s going on with the Assassins’ Guild and the Thieves’ Guild during the events of the current Uncanny X-Men run. On the upside, the politics of the two normally rival guilds working together are fascinating. On the downside, it also heavily references an Uncanny X-Men run that I can’t wait to be over with, and it does hold this issue back for me. Gambit is fun as usual, and the cliffhanger ending is intense in all the right ways. If this didn’t have anything to do with the Uncanny X-Men series, I’d say this is a must read for Gambit and Rogue fans. Because it does tie into it though, I’ll just say it’s good but not great, and it’s only recommended for those who have enjoyed this series, and want to read the last two issues (this and the next).

About healed1337

I am a relatively new comic book fan writing this blog for other new comic book fans and/or people who are interested in comics but don't know where to start. I've always been interested in writing, to the point where I have a college Creative Writing Certificate and I'm currently a year 2 Journalism student. I also have another blog where I mostly make fun of bad movies - www.healed1337.blogspot.com As for how I got into comics, I've always had a passing interest in superheroes: most notably Batman, Spider-man and the X-Men. Until February of 2011 (I think,) my only experience with any of these franchises came from the movies and video games. Shortly after I bought Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 however, I decided to check out X-23, Wolverine's female clone. I ended up reading her Innocence Lost origin story and enjoyed it. From there, I started reading various X-Men comics and it quickly exploded into my newest hobby. My other interests/hobbies include video games, movies, music, playing sports, my dogs and weird news.

    Glad to hear the move is all systems go. I’ve seen Endgame a couple of times now, great film, noticed so much more the second viewing. All those little Easter eggs amidst all the action ect. Didn’t get any comics this week as I was busy in London. Have a great weekend 🙂

    Mr. and Mrs. X was really good. It kept the tie-in to current events small enough not to bother me. And hey, Candra!
