Logan is a fitting sendoff for Hugh Jackman, and an apt reminder that superhero movies don’t need to be big to be memorable.

Generation Hope #9 is “the one where we’re using the X-metaphor to talk about teenage gay suicide.” It's not a story where they "deal with" teenage gay suicide, of course; that would imply some sort of satisfactory resolution, if not an outright happy ending.

5 Ronin #1 Review
