It’s the eighth week of new comics in 2018, and This Week in X we have the end of two series while two arcs hit their midpoints and one just starts heating up.
- Astonishing X-Men #8 (of 12) finds Charles Soule delighting in making flashy, early-90s style comics.
- Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan #5 (of 5) winds up as a slightly sub-par Deadpool story that looks pretty darn good and gives us a strong new character.
- Generation X #87 (final issue!) puts a wrap on a series that had more heart than action, and which included the best character voices of the entire X-Men line.
- Venom #162 (Poison-X 3 of 5) continues the X-Men Blue squad’s space adventures in a big, fun way.
- X-Men Gold #22 is a comic book that exists and has pages with words on them.
Learn more about how each of those series reached their current issues and hear which ones I’d recommend picking up. Plus, learn what new X-collections are out this week, including All-New Wolverine, Astonishing X-Men, classic Cable & X-Force, and one of my favorite Excalibur stories of all time!
