X-Men Issue 4: “Curse of the Mutants, Part 4”

By Vince

Things just keep getting worse for the X-Men; Wolverine is now a vampire and the bloodsuckers are running rampant over San Francisco. Historically, the X-Men work best when their backs are against the wall, so the second half of this first story arc for the new title should be entertaining. The comic starts out with the X-Men finally going on the offensive, with the focus being on the team of Blad... Read More »

Issue 2 of the new X-Men took the story to an interesting place. Jubilee finally gave in to the vampire corruption spreading through her body and left Utopia.

With such a large cast... Read More »

I’m a bit conflicted on the necessity of this title. To be honest, the X-Men family of books is big enough as it is. Comparing it to Marvel’s other big super-team, it’s surpassing the Avengers franchise in terms of monthly publications. However, many of the Avengers have their own solo titles for character development, leaving the team books for larger stories. With the exception of Wolverine, non... Read More »

The 5 Greatest Comic Storylines of All Time

By Vince

Comics get a bad rap. I find it interesting that people who play video games, long considered a “kids” hobby, will discount comics as being immature. Proponents of traditional books find the medium completely without merit. That’s not how things work here at BDTU. Each work should be judged on its own merit. Personally, I’ll go anywhere for a story, and as a medium, comics can deliver a story that... Read More »
