Quicksilver: No Surrender #5 cover by Martin Simmonds
This is more complex, and it requires the white-haired Avenger to confront things about himself which he won't like. This is a small detail, but I like how the comic almost has to stop itself from calling Quicksilver the "Fastest Man Alive" and instead call him the "Fastest Man in the World." It's kind of funny. The[...]
Quicksilver: No Surrender #4 cover by Martin Simmonds
He is keeping others out and, consequently and literally, keeping himself alone and in danger. The light creatures are still a bit dull as monsters go though. Quicksilver: No Surrender #4 art by Eric Nguyen and Rico Renzi Eric Nguyen's artwork continues to work very well for the book The smooth texture work and at-times blurred features lend[...]

Beyond 90's Vigilante Nostalgia In X: Volume One's 'Big Bad'
 I was aware the character existed, I remember whispers of him in the 90's as a dark brooding vigilante when such things were as common as air, but I never had the urge to find out more about him.  I would read my Aliens omnibus and look at the solicitations in the back and be[...]
