Anyway. Spoilers for AXM 25, aka the first in Warren Ellis' Astonishing run.
They're in San Francisco now? Gotta love how I clearly blinked and missed the Westchester Mansion getting destroyed. (Also, I find it interesting that in San Francisco the coloring is all so dark.)
Allie had said the art was gorgeous, but I was not prepared for this kind of art. This is what we get on the Buffy covers, but I've never seen this kind of art inside a comic book. Wow.
Emma looks like a tranny with collagen lips, though, which is unfortunate. Also, why doesn't Ororo get to wear pants and a shirt like a normal person?
Hisako and her pajamas (and slippers)!
Hisako: He [Logan] says that if my name's "Armor" then his name is "Claws" and Ms. Frost's name is "Brain" and Ms. Rogue's name is "Suck."
[Edit 'cause I forgot to mention] Hank calls her "Abigail" (as I suppose he would; I can't help thinking of Abigail Adams as I type this -- I think because of recent friend updates on GoodReads). [/edit]
Ororo: I never knew that guilt-free shopping and constant lovemaking could get so boring.
Emma: ... I do not believe I heard another human being say that out loud.
I like the nod to the baggage that comes with superhero costumes in terms of perception by the official authorities.
The frame of Ororo at the bottom of the page when they first find the burning guy is beautiful.
Hank says "celiac plexus" and Logan knows what he's talking about?
Hisako: That doesn't sound like a good idea, Mr. Summers.
Scott: We're on mission time now. Codenames.
Hisako: Sorry. That sounds like we're all going to die, Cyclops.
Scott: I've known Warren Worthington since we were sixteen, Wolverine.
Logan: That's kinda my point.
