Marvelette Missives – Kitty Pryde

Marvelette Missives – Faith and the Future Force

It wasn’t that long ago (about a month, actually) that I wrote about the superhero Faith. Though that was a one-shot holiday special, the ongoing series is a great read as well (and I’ll write about that eventually… promise!). Valiant recently used the character to bring together all of their big heroes in the miniseries Faith and the Future ForceMore

If you keep up with comics, especially those of the mutant variety, you know there’s a new miniseries on shelves that pits two of Marvel’s most popular mutants against each other. And, of course, it’s well worth a look for fans of either. That book is Deadpool vs. Old Man LoganMore
