Day 13 - A book you’ve read more than five times

I am constantly going back to Classic X-Men. Specifically, to its backstories. Specifically, to these backstories.


The beginning of Storm and Jean's friendship. Classic X-Men #2, First Friends

The spark in Jean that the Phoenix saw; that I wish Jean had been allowed to become, without the aid of Scott, Logan or a cosmic entity. Classic X-Men #8

Storm's meeting with M'Rin. Classic X-Men #22, Solace

An incorrigible Logan makes the most of a slimey situation in an story that Grant Morrison duplicated in New X-Men, without grasping the element that made the ending so perfect. Classic X-Men #27

I learned my first lessons about sexism and sexuality and power from The White Queen. Apparently, January Jones did not. Classic X-Men #34: Double Negative

Storm is forced to make a difficult decision, perhaps the first evidence of her future role as leader of the X-Men. Art by Jim Lee. Classic X-Men #39, Briggs' Revenge

WHAT IS THIS?

This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
