I'm serious when I say you've been more help on this in a few hours than anyone else I've been asking for the last several months. I don't know why I didn't just ask you in the first place, lol

It's pretty easy to tell when someone actually wants you to get (back) into something. Thanks, dude.

What a strange coincidence that I finally decided to pick up an actual copy of English comic today.
(I've been given freebies in the past, but this is my first deliberate decision to get one lulz)

But, I suppose the much acclaimed Astonishing X-Men run isn't modern/noteworthy enough? Awww. :P

p.s. It's funny that they had to create a new plot-important member of the Summers family, haha.

Astonishing I've heard is pretty good. I haven't back tracked that far. (It takes place before Messiah CompleX.) But Messiah CompleX is where the huger conflict starts, and is the main focal point of Avengers vs X-Men.
