Greetings my friends and before we get into this first issue overview from Marvel Comics let’s once again bow our heads in humble respect to the passing of the legendary Stan “The Man” Lee who we lost this past November at age 95. He has truly left an indelible mark on the comics industry and our Memorial Toast can be examined HERE in the event that you missed it. Now we continue along and let me ask you a question. Did November just blast by us or am I imagining things? Maybe its just me but I felt that the month went by super-fast and while its now a couple of days ago, I hope that those who celebrated the holiday had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We kept it mellow with some family because those kinds of days are needed more and more based on the frantic pace of my media adventures. So here we go into the mix with the provided press copy and images from the House Of Ideas. Lots of good stuff this month for sure.
X-Men: The Exterminated #1: EXTERMINATION AFTERMATH! A Death in the Family! In the aftermath of Extermination, the X-Men mourn for their fallen brother, Cable. But no one is taking it harder than his adopted daughter, Hope Summers. Will Hope be able to cope with the loss, or will she be led down a dark path that she won’t be able to return from? Only Jean Grey can save Hope from herself! Plus, celebrate the life of Nathan Summers with a story from his past by Chris Claremont! One-shot.
