Holy Carrot Top Batman, Kurt looks like a woman! :shock

And I could imagine he'll have a cameo of sorts, nothing big. Just something to make us fanboys buy yet another comic that week :shrug Far as anyone knows I know, Kurt's book is Uncanny

On a side note: on the covers at the bottom there's one for the Magik mini. I *hope* it's intentionally drawn like in those cheap fantasy stories, voluptuous demons and shit. Because if not, I feel kinda insulted that whoever is responsible for this thinks I'm that easily manipulated through boobs.

""Sabretooth isn't coming back; he's dead," Lowe said to applause."

Someone catch scummy!

Dude, I don't know how that looks like a woman to you, but ugly stick - yes. But having him in astonishing would be fantastic.

The face is too slim and he looks as if he's pouting. Not to mention the mini boobs he seems to have on the first look.

We discussed this over on the Marvel forums and the consensus is that he looks a bit like Michael Jackson. His hair is nice. Notice: He has one too many fingers.

Other than that, I am excited that I might be able to buy another comic book. That will raise the tally to two on my pull list! I hope my LCS can handle that.

I don't know about you guys, but the three pages of "Squad 2" in action are some damn beautiful art - an awesome example of how a common technique like trapping, when used in a new way, can turn the ordinary into the extra-ordinary.

My favorite of the three: Look at the panel with Iceman! Wow!

But I liked all three though. Lovely work!

Oh, Neling, if you didn't get astonishing 1-24, you must get the trades. That was a damn fantastic read.

Replace "woman" with "hag" and I can see it.

Yeah, never said a good looking woman ;)

Old hag, maybe perverted, judging by the smile(?)

"Squad 2" is just a collage made up from his design sketches. It's not new art. Until someone in the know explicitly says that Kurt will join the roster, I'm not going to believe he will.
