X-Men: Gold #1
X-Men Gold Cassaday Variant
WIFE: I did not know that Goldust was The Wizard
RU: Ok, now your just being mean for means sake
RU: I’m not one for these types of things, but Jean looks…chunky.
WIFE: Hmmm, yea, it’s right after Halloween, she was probably eating lots of candy. Cut her some slack.
X-Men: Gold #1 Coipel Cover
RU: The Fuck?
WIFE: Is this a bad 80s action movie poster?
RU: I don’t even understand Storm’s…anything
WIFE: Oh, this little zig-zaggy thing?
RU: All of it. The outfit, the hair, the pose.
WIFE: Is she Zuul?
WIFE: Do we have 8 pages of this?
RU: Claremont wrote part of it, be glad there are no words. We’d be here till Thanksgiving.
X-Men: Gold preview pg 1
WIFE: Speaking of Thanksgiving, I found a recipe for pumpkin flavored…
RU: Is that directed at the art or me?
WIFE: What, the…what? That outfit can’t be weather appropriate.
RU: Storm, again!
WIFE: What’s wrong with her?
RU: Don’t get me started. I never got the love Storm gets.
WIFE: I love you
RU: That’s not what I meant…never mind, thanks.
RU: Is it me, or is the professor all like “Ohh, what a loon I am. Oh, what a loon I am.”
WIFE: Dude, again with the references no one will get.
RU: Like that Cyanide and Happiness link I sent you today?
WIFE: Yes, but without the charm.
X-Men: Gold #1 preview pg 2
WIFE: Whoa, hello hand!
X-Men: Gold #1 preview pg 3
WIFE: Is she wearing a dragon?
RU: Yes, and Lockeed rules!
RU: Again, what the fuck is up with Storm?
WIFE: I want a dragon.
RU: You still owe me a puma!
WIFE: It’s on back order.
RU: For 15 years?!
X-Men: Gold #1 preview pg 4
RU: You want to take this one?
WIFE: No, go ahead, it’s all you.
RU: Ow! My nipple!
WIFE: Not where I thought you were going.
RU: What did you expect?
WIFE: Are they amused or horrified?
RU: Rogue looks like someone farted, Cyclops is laughing at the nipple shot, Kurt is giving us his best “O” face, Logan farted, and Storm, well who knows anymore?
WIFE: Yea…this book looks really bad
RU: Yea, anyone who preordered this is probably pretty mad right now!
WIFE: You preordered it didn’t you.
RU: Is there an “X” in the title?
X-Men: Gold #1 preview pg 5
WIFE: G-d dammit, only page 6. At least they finally made it to Oz to visit Goldust.
RU: At least Storm isn’t here.
WIFE: Did they all die? Why are they statues?
RU: Did Iceman die taking a dump?
WIFE: Does she have a penis?
RU: Wouldn’t surprise me, Jean Grey is the worst.
WIFE: How does having a penis make her the worst? Explain your theory.
RU: Even without the penis she’s a ginger.
WIFE: Not really explaining anything.
RU: Because shut-up!
WIFE: And there we go.
X-Men: Gold #1 preview pg 6
WIFE: This is pretty.
RU: Pretty stupid. All I took from this is that you will never forget the name of ooooohhhhhhhh Gooooldust!
WIFE: I’m not sure how I feel about that.
RU: I know it amuses the hell out of me that you get all these wrestling references.
WIFE: This book was dumb. Where’s Deadpool? That was fun.
RU: That’s my girl! And, those of you who didn't already pre-order this can avoid it starting on 11/13/13

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).
