Head-Shaming the Watchers in Next Week's Exiles Finale

In next week's finale of Exiles, Blink and her team of misfit time warriors comes face to face with the Watchers to face their tribunal and be judged. But if anyone is getting judgy in this preview of next week's issue, it appears to be the Exiles themselves, who have lots of mean stuff to say about the Watchers' physical appearances. Well, mainly their heads.

Big-headed bastards? That isn't nice Blink. Nor is what Bucky has to say a short time later, comparing the Watchers' heads to automobiles.

Of course, these are technically a rogue band of Watchers, not the usual kind that refuse to interfere with events.

These watchers will definitely molest you, and they prove it in this preview, imprisoning the Exiles in broken timelines. But even still, is that any excuse to sink to mocking their head size?

The AV Club, usually champions of social justice, had nothing to say about this callous head-shaming in their EX-X-XCLUSIVE preview of the issue. Has the journalism Eisner inflated their heads? If so, we promise not to say anything mean about it.

Exiles #12 concludes next Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
