So much for the vacation.
The issue 3 preview is available now. My personal take? That's what I'm talking about! Marjorie Liu has really hit her stride now if this preview is any indication. It looks to be AWESOME. We will all find out if it holds up in a few days when it's released on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010.
This preview really gives me hope for the title though. I hope the rest of the issue proves just as good. The foreshadowing about her mother is perfect too. It gives me hope they really will go with the entire 'her mother is in hell' angle. Ms. Liu has gotten my hopes high again with her amazing writing, and character potential. The little bits that seem rather mean-spirited towards her mother after the tearful moments before, really reflect a teenager well. It shows a growing return of the psychology that was rampant in the Kyle/Yost run that made them great. Namely, teenagers are fickle and selective themselves depending on what they want to focus on, and how they feel about their lives in reflection. This X-23 (going off just these 6 pages) is really starting to shine as real, and it's thanks to Marjorie Liu for this great usage. I'm looking forward to the rest of the issue, and where she may take this. It further proves why comics are handled by professional writers and not lame fanboys who do stupid things like push for a movie using their unsolicited screenplay adapted from the minis with no agent.
So on with the stellar preview.
