Nightcrawler #5 Preview

Post by DoomInABox » Wed Dec 29, 2004 6:28 pm

There's a five-page preview for Nightcrawler #5 at PopCultureShock. Here's the link:
http://www.popcultureshock.com/reviews.php?id=3737

The setup looks fantastic ... I'm already getting those pre-ghost-story shivers. And The banter with Logan and Ro is great. I'm going to have no fingernails left by the time this actually comes out.

That "splash page" with Kurt leaning against a pillar has to be the most handsome version I've seen of him to date! Good Lord, he looks like a model for a perfume ad! ;pant

[spoiler]And is it just me, or is there a bit of jealously I'm detecting from 'Ro? Oh, sure, we can pass it off as her claustrophobia acting up, but stil..... [/spoiler]

Good to see you Mael, where you been hiding?

Oh, I agree, Kurt looks very yummy ;)

[spoiler]Well, within the discussion it says that Kurt invited his two best friends so he could keep things light (Or maybe to make Ororo jealous?). But you're right, Ororo certainly looks miffed, and she's also being whiny, which isn't like her at all. Could very well be she's jealous. God do I just want to give her and Kurt a good swift kick in their respective butts, right toward each other.[/spoiler]

I'm probably reading too much into it, but Darick, you've just made me one very happy Nightcrawler fan. :D

One thing I just noticed, and its buggin' me: for months the title's been solicited as "Ghosts on the Rails", but actually printed, it looks like it's been changed to "Ghosts on the Tracks".
(link: http://www.popcultureshock.com/viewer.p ... d=3737&p=3

Personally, I think "rails" has a much better ring than "tracks". Why the change, I wonder?

Good one whoever came up with Wolverine liking Broadway shows. Everytime "Boy from Oz" is mentioned I start cracking up. :LOL A nice nod to Hugh Jackman, I must say.

Together undivided, but forever we'll be free.
So sail away aboard our rig

It was. They made a direct nod to him in "Uncanny" also, though the thought of Logan even watching a musical makes me crack up. I love it!
I think my comic dealer is going to have to hold multiple copies of this one.

If 'Ro's acting jealous, then Logan's acting snotty! Anybody else get the idea he doesn't think Nurse Palmer is good enough for our Kurt?

Eh, I think he's just in bad mood having to put up with 'Ro whining the whole evening.

Must...fight...nitpicker...can't !
If Storm is claustropobic, wouldn't she be unable to take the subway?

Maybe if you attune (I know that's not the word I'm looking for...) yourself to it... get used to it (I'm not sure what I'm saying), it's not as bad. But unknown situations would almost certainly cause the normal fear.

WATSON: Say, have you noticed that Amanda is never there when nurse Palmer is?
SHERLOCK: Come now, I'm sure no one expect that old chestnut!
WATSON: Holmes, you're so smart! So tell me, what is "DIAB"?

Yay! People know me! *wipes away tear of pride*

Anyone else think it's awful cold to drag 'Ro into the subway just because Christine hates flying? Or did she just not want to complain outright when offered free tickets? But couldn't they have just taken a taxi or something? Wait, then they wouldn't be there to see the rats and the runaway train. Plot device. Gotcha.

You know, as funny as it is, Logan just doesn't strike me as a Broadway guy ... which probably is what makes this so cute.
"So ... you like Broadway?"
"Yeah, what about it, bub?"
"Er, nothing ..." *backs away slowly*

You know, it's quite amazing how often the movies' influence keeps popping up, what with Hugh Jackman/Broadway, and Rogue being named Anna and so on.
