Next up from my 50 Cent MegaCon score is Astonishing X-Men #52. The X-Men has always been one of my favorite comic franchises though I stopped reading on a regular basis long before Astonishing X-Men came along. The Uncanny X-Men, The X-Men (later), X-Force, X-Factor, The New Mutants and Excalibur…those were the titles I remember.
There’s a lot going on in this issue. Karma is being mind controlled by someone else…awkward as that’s sort of what she does. Oh, and Wolverine explodes. There’s some kind of bomb in his stomach. I’m not too worried though. With that mutant healing factor of his I’m sure it will all work out in the end.
