1808NCBD2021

The Geeky Brummie Pull List with Way of X

Only the final issue of Way of X makes this weeks list. Seven other comics make it in to our On The Radar section, including the latest instalments of Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, Bermuda and Beyond The Breach, and you should definitely check them out.

In Meanwhile…

If you want to send any comics or comic related events we should feature, feel free to reach out to me at keith@geekybrummie.com. Now on with the comics…

 

wayofx5

Title: Way of X

Issue: 5

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Written by Simon Spurrier : Art by Bob Quinn : Cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli

THIS IS THE WAY! What happens when the third law of Krakoa is broken? What happens when all other solutions have failed? What happens when Nightcrawler finally finds the Way?

With so much going on in the world of the X-Men it’s possible you’ve not picked up this title. You really should as Si Spurrier and his team have been putting out on of the best X-books on the market. It’s a real shame that this is the final issue of this run as Si’s take on these characters has been revelatory and he is one of my favourite writers right now. We are getting a follow up issue in X-Men: The Onslaught Revelation which is due at the end of September but I hope Si is given a chance to keep playing in the X-verse again soon.

Supergirl’s journey across the cosmos continues! Her hunt to bring the killer Krem to justice brings her and the young alien in her care to a small planet, where they discover that there are still some very small minds, even on the outer edges of the galaxy. The cold welcome the locals give the Woman of Steel makes her suspicious enough to go looking for secrets they want to keep buried, and what she finds is nothing short of horrifying. Can she and Ruthye get off the planet alive now that these deadly sins have been exposed?

 

bermuda2

Bermuda #2

IDW Publishing
