RU: Which one do you want to do first; zombie Deadpool or ghost pirate…blue ghost pirate?
WIFE: Oooooh, ghost pirate
WIFE and RU stop unpacking long enough to knock out Marvel's First Look: Amazing X-Men #1!
Amazing X-Men #1 preview page 1
WIFE: You said this involved a ghost pirate, there’s nothing ghost-y or pirate-y about him. Where are his gold deplumes (no guarantee that will ever be spelled correctly)? Where is his sword? Where is his band of lovable sidekicks?
RU: OK, in order: (1) That’s Nightcrawler, he’s dead, and that’s heaven, ergo, ghost. (2) Not everything has to be in the first page. (3) Heaven has no currency, bunch of commie pinkos. (4) See #2. (5) This isn’t the Disney Channel.
WIFE: Ok, we’ll see.
Amazing X-Men #1 preview page 2:
RU: BOOSH! Pirate!
WIFE: Looks more ninja-y than pirate-y
RU: How many words have you made up so far?
WIFE: Less than you’ve spelled wrong.
RU: That’s totally a pirate sword and he’s fighting colonists! Look at the hat!
WIFE: Ok, so that’s sort of almost pirate-y, that’s 1.
RU: Bull donkey!
Amazing X-Men #1 preview page 3
WIFE: OK, there. That’s a pirate. Oh, awe, he even has lovable sidekicks!
RU: I’m fairly certain that it is quite obvious that this one is the bad guy.
WIFE: Pirates weren’t good guys, dude.
RU: Even Jake?
WIFE: fucking poser!
Amazing X-Men #1 preview page 4
RU: Well, that’s not part of the pirate motif.
WIFE: I think the only purpose of this page was to make her awkwardly pose to showcase her boobs.
RU: Yea, what’s up with that? I mean, that had to be planned, right? Its just, distracting
WIFE: Yea, you can’t unsee that.
RU: I got nothin’.
RU: I can’t even think of a bad segue into the solicitation:
WIFE: Really… you spell segue right?

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
