X-aminations in May 2017

May kicks off with a handful of "X-Cutioner's Song" epilogues (all three of which are pretty top-notch), a pair of new storylines kicking off, and, thankfully, more Alan Davis Excalibur.

Then, a couple of short weeks on account of the local comic book convention at which I volunteer followed by my birthday and some family stuff, in which we'll look at the next waves of X-Men action figures and the second set of X-Men-specific trading cards.

  1. I keep forgetting to suggest this for any future Retro Reviews: Obnoxio the Clown #1. You might have considered and dismissed it, understandably so. It’s notable almost entirely — unless you were the late Alan Kupperberg, whom I mean no disrespect — for being an early indicator of Marvel’s realization of just what a draw the X-Men had become, using them to sell a one-shot starring a character from the Mad-style magazine Crazy. They appear only in the 10-page lead story and the proper title of the one-shot per the indicia is not Obnoxio the Clown vs. the X-Men despite the size of their logo on the cover. And that may honestly be all that’s worth saying about it. 8^)


Comment. Please. Love it? Hate it? Are mildly indifferent to it? Let us know!
