comic book homework
My good friend M came out to work the admission desk yesterday. Bob from Stormwatch Comics gave her some comics and insisted she write him a 'book report'. She's a non comics reader, but loves Buffy, horror movies, Seth Green, and is a huge Lost fan. I gave her one of the Sin City trades for Xmas, because I think she'd be a great 'fangirl'.
“Astonishing X-Men Issues #1-3” by Whedon and Cassaday
OK, I’ll start off by saying that I was a little lost in the beginning. My knowledge of the X-men is limited to a little pop-culture knowledge and the movies. I’m not really familiar with all the characters in the Astonishing X-men, so I went to the Mavel webpage and Google to do a little research on some of the characters to get up to speed on what’s going on.
Well, besides being a little lost in the beginning, I really enjoyed this book. By the end of Issue 3 I really didn’t want it to end. I like the plot even though I don’t know all the history of the X-men. I’m intrigued with some of the characters that I’ve never seen before, like Kitty, McCoy, and Emma. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. Sorry this is short, I wanted to write a long winded review, but I’m a little busy at work right now. It’s taken me all morning to just write these two paragraphs. Thanks for the comic Bob, I really did enjoy it.
