Marvel’s finally decided to release the next volume of the Reign of X Anthologies! Darn those supply-chain issues, that DC Comics and all the indies have somehow been able to sidestep! Anyway, we’re back — and we’re just in time for the Hellfire Gala! Oh, you didn’t know? There’s going to be a Gala! If only these books would bother to mention it!
Since Marvel trade paperbacks are suffering the affects of shrinkflation (which we’re surely only imagining), we only get the first five issues of the event here. Looks like the Gala will be eating up the next two collected editions as well!
It’s over four hours of fun, frivolity… Carnation Abominations, and a fake-ass vote to elect our new (already obsolete) X-Men!
