Title: Astonishing X-Men
Creators: Marjorie Liu (story), Mike PErkins (art), Gabriel Hernandez Walta (art)
Posting: Four pages from AXM #49, two pages from #59, one page from #56
Availability: In the Northstar (currently on sale, btw) and Weaponized trades, and digitally.

So there's a lot I like about the Jean-Paul Beaubier/Kyle Jinadu relationship (most of it covered here).

There's quite a bit I dislike about it, the latest being the bitter hilarity of Marvel having waited about twenty years to do anything with Northstar's lovelife, and then by the time they finally decided the waters of public opinion were tepid enough to do their gay marriage/DOMA storyline, they wound up spending over a year building to a story that's currently on the cutting edge of obsolescence.

I've got to admit, though, I do love how sweet these two can be together.

...you make me feel like there's nothing wrong with me. )

Posting a link to my blog discussing Joss Whedon, Feminism and Astonishing X-Men

[personal profile] salinea was interested in reading about it and I thought maybe a few of you might be interested as well.

i tried to do the class justice, i hope i succeeded at least in part.

the discussions were really lively, and the only thing about it that i was disappointed about was that it was too damned short :D

Warning: This is going to be a long post. First, I've got a few things to say. Then I've got five pages of set-up. Then I've got three pages of the first thing that came to mind when I tried to think of one perfect comic book moment. All in all, the scans come to about 8 megs.

Some blathering about S_D )

Moving on to the business at hand... Five scans from the end of Astonishing X-Men #5, setting up for one beautiful moment in AXM #6. It took an hour of digging through my poorly organized comic book collection to find those two issues. (Probably silly because I'm sure I could have found scans online with less time and effort. Probably from some archive of S_D v1.) But I think it's worth it, and I hope you do, too.
