Let’s just state right here and now, the Comics Ninja is an X-Men fan, has been since the 80′s but even I can’t keep track of how many new and ongoing X-Men series there are. Apparently, the good folks at Marvel may have been sensing this fan fatigue and confusion and in response came up with one of the best ad campaigns ever. First they hit us with one of the hottest ads the Ninja has ever seen followed closely by one of the more honest. First the hot.
Not sure if I have ever seen another ad quite this sizzling and I plan to put it on full display in my house for everyone to see. Now, when I say everyone, I mean anyone who happens to be under the mattress on my side of the bed because that is where I’ll be hiding this little image of the White Queen!
Anyhoo, with that bit of hyperventilating over we can now move onto the second ad which in many ways is simply heroic. As a side note, as stated above there are currently so many X-Men series out there that even the Ninja isn’t sure whether the next ad is part of the same campaign or for yet another new series but either way the honesty regarding the readability of this new series is breath taking. Self criticism at its best.
How bad is this series…well we here at Marvel have decided to quit pussy footing around and just give you the answer up front. Bully for you Marvel, bully for you.
