    Default 10 Reasons Why You Should Love Kelly & Seagle's X-Men run

    aka the OFFICIAL Joe Kelly/Steven T. Seagle Appreciation Thread.



    I'd post it in hi-res, but something-or-the-other just can't handle this hotness.

    You can find pages upon pages of issues 71 & 72 on scans_daily if you search hard enough. Give it a try then get the back issues of X-Men #70-79 if you like it. I'm not as an avid fan of Seagle's run but I thought I should lump them together so someone else can give you issue numbers! <3

    Anyway, this era is probably my favorite of all time...and it only lasted about 9 issues. I love the direction, the dialogue, the art, the cast--it was amaaaayzing.

    Thoughts? Memories? Love! Try it out if you haven't; everyone's doing it.
    All the cool kids are, anyway.

    EDIT:
    $@($~! I forgot to add a poll.

    Poll:
    Did you like Kelly/Seagle's runs?
    Only Kelly's
    Only Seagle's
    Both, immensely! ||||||||||||||||||| 100%
    They were okay.
    Neither.
    I haven't read them.

    (If a mod could actually add that poll I'd appreciate it muchly!)

    The 3-4 issues that had the Originals in them in Alaska is gold. I love him just for that.

    awww...you make me blush :). Ive been lame and havent posted in a while, but i try to check in and see what ya'll are up to even if i can't think of anything worth contributing :). So you've totally brought back all my x-men 70 memories and hopes that were dashed. That was easily one of my top 5 x-men issues of all time.....living in a technology-less mansion...beast and cecilia love....storm and marrow tension.....wolverine and marrow tension.....sam and marrow tension, and so forth....

    I think these are my most re-read issues of x-men ever. Seriously, I've done the classics about 5 times each but I literally have read this run over 20 times and each time it just gets better.
    Pacheco is my god, the cast was perfect, and they mixed downtime, action and plot/character development PERFECTLY/ No-one since has even come close.

    The downtime issue where Scott and Jean are getting ready to leave and the Newer X-Men are having breakfast/getting coffee in town is THE BEST.

    Great lineup, a mix of veterans and newbies:

    Beast, Storm, Wolverine, Cannonball, Cecilia Reyes, Maggott, Marrow.

    I loved having a bunch of new guys demonstrate how Sam wasnt a rookie and there were some great dynamics

    Beast+ Cecilia (Romantic)
    Storm+ Wolverine (Old Friends)
    Cannonball +Marrow (Unrequited crush)
    Maggot+ Wolverine (Mentor/Respect)
    Wolverine+ Marrow (Logan reflecting on how much he used to be like Marrow)
    Storm + Marrow (Guilt, Parental, Abandonment issues, resentment)
    Cecelia+ Maggot (flirting)
    Cecilia+ Wolverine (spikey friendship)

    You know, I wouldn't have minded seeing that Cannonball/Marrow thing go somewhere. I think Sam would have been able to bring out Sarah's inner beauty.

    oh yeah, i so wanted them together. I hope they interact at some point in the future, but i think Mike Carey's Sam is tough enough to give lil Sarah a run for her money. ;)

    Yeah...as long as they don't do the 'She's pretty so now i notice her' story. That is so weak. Sam's a big enough person to see that inner beauty and vulnerability.

    They could have a very Xander/Anya relationship.

    Well, I would rather see Sam with someone interesting like Sarah, instead of that boring ho Lila.:p

    Awww...a buffy reference, i knew i liked you :). I LOVED anya and xander, and i totally could see that under seagle's run. with Sam now though, it feels like he and marrow would be more of a Ryan and Marissa (tell me you watch the oc too and ill love you forever :) )
