KC Praises Jason Aaron

In KC’s latest Westfield column, he talks about why he likes Jason Aaron’s Wolverine and the X-Men, now available in a comprehensive omnibus. I’d forgotten how much fun that series was — clearly, I need to reread it. KC also talks about some of Aaron’s other writing work, in case you’d like to read more.

    Weird that KC & I started back on X-titles at the same time with Schism & discovered Aaron’s work the same way as well. His Wolverine & the X-Men work is what made me fall in love with the characters again after over a decade of not reading the books.

    I think KC will love the Thor book too, it was big and epic but never to the point that I lost touch with it.

    Curious that he is liking Original Sin though. I really enjoyed the Waid penned Nova lead in. The story seems like it would be interesting, but the art is… impersonal.

    With weird shadows over peoples faces, or characters standing or sitting with their backs to or at least away from the reader. It just makes me feel detached from the story, like I’m being ignored or blocked out. Which is a weird thing to say about a comic I know, but that’s just how I feel when I try to read the book.

    Good piece by KC though, I’ll be curious to see if those other series, which like KC, has characters that have never held an interest to me is worth reading or not.
