One Week One Comic: Marvelous X-Men #1

Alex: Every Wednesday on Twitter, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. It’s called #oneweekonecomic, and I’m collating each thread into its own blog post.

This time out, we’re looking at Lonnie Nadler/Zac Thompson/Marco Failla’s AGE OF X-MAN: THE MARVELOUS X-MEN #1. Some (very mild) spoilers after the cut.

One Week One Comic (Bonus Post): Runaways

Alex: Today we’ve been running the assorted One Week One Comic threads I’ve been tweeting over the past month. For the sake of completeness, though, here’s a post adapting the thread that started it all – not on a single issue, but the first two trades of Rainbow Rowell/Kris Anka/Matt Wilson/Joe Caramagna’s RUNAWAYS.

Spoilers up to issue #12 after the cut.

One Week One Comic: Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt #1

Alex: So, over the past month, I’ve started playing with something new on Twitter. Each week, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. There are a lot of problems with Twitter as a platform, though, so I thought I’d try collating those thoughts into blog posts. This is all very much in the experimental stages, so let us know what you think.

This time out, it’s Kieron Gillen/Caspar Wijngaard/Mary Safro/Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou’s PETER CANNON: THUNDERBOLT #1. Spoilers follow after the cut. In the case of this particular comic, pretty enormous spoilers.
