After the culmination of X-23 v3 issue #03, an issue that finally began the healing process for Laura Kinney, the series should only be looking forward now. It will start creating its own progression, and hopefully not keep re-writing history for the character. (So in other words, please God, don't let it have more flashbacks, I don't think reality can take anymore!)
This could mean some great and new stories. I personally am looking forward to this issue, as it'll mark the first issue in this on-going series to do its own thing. We are not faced with a Laura Kinney that's a killer, but someone who is out on the road to do her own thing, and live her own life. Something that hasn't been on shelves in a little over 3 years. (Again with the threes...)
So, just as a reminder, issue #04 of the on-going comic will be hitting shelves on December 15th, 2010.
