Nothing.

Might grab a few of "Original Sin" if it shows Cap getting his richly deserved revenge on the Illuminati for being dicks ! :twisted:

I'm intrigued by that mini Deadpool omnibus from Bunn.

I have faith in him as well, but those 2 issues weren't nearly as good as the first issues of the previous run.

Plus I'm not a fan of the artist.

Yeah, the first four issues were ALRIGHT, but not mindblowing. It suffers from the same problem as the previous volume; while PAD is skilled at what he does, I don't care enough about any of the characters to get invested.

The previous volume was a great read on Marvel Unlimited, though, where having access to all of the issues at once made me care very deeply about all of the characters. I feel like ANXF will provide a similar experience a few years from now.

The previous run was great, it was consistently one of the best Marvel titles at least for the first 4 or 5 years.

And I do care about these characters. I like Gambit. And I love Cypher (coincidentally, I was quite disappointed not to find Cypher on the first issues even though he appeared on the cover of #1).

I stopped reading the previous volume at issue 20 when Rictor might have died in a cliffhanger. After I realized I had no stake in whether he lived or died, I said to myself, "This is a great comic, but maybe not for me to spend $3 per month."

I'm on the same page with ANXF. Great comic, but not enough for me to spend my monthly comics budget.

As a Gambit fan, how do you like him in this volume? This was one of the only times I could tolerate him. I've heard fans complain, though, that PAD just changes the personalities of characters to fit certain types he likes writing. Do you feel that way about Gambit in ANXF?

Well, I've only read 2 issues but Gambit seemed fine to me.
I was really looking forward to see Cypher, though. I love Cypher so much.
