The time-travelling element is firmly put in place in this second issue of Brian Michael Bendis’ Marvel Now take on the mutant team.

Another of the Marvel Now releases sees Simon Spurrier take on one of the X-Men titles but with some stiff competition from some solid starts elsewhere – this title seemed to be a pot-luck affair for me – which was always a 50/50 for paying off.

The Comics Anonymous gang caught up with Kieron Gillen at Legacy Comics in the picturesque town of Halifax, the day before the Thought Bubble con.

We heard new phrases coined (‘emotional contraceptives’ was a belter) and witnessed a short but intriguing philosophical examination of the creative writing process.
