Well I know
was coming back and was duly pleased but....Holy Cow!
A Wolverine and Nightcrawler buddy comic?
*fist pump* called it! and I wasn't even being serious! woo hoo!
Quick! someone get me a time machine so I can go back to 2007 and not-seriously get a lottery ticket
Funny though, I often pictured how Wolvie and Nightcrawler would come to terms about everything that happened (before and) after his death.
I imagined it something like a 9 panel page, Rachel or someone in the foreground, breaking the news to (well, I suppose,) Kitty, while in the background as a counterpoint Kurt and Logan are discussing things - no dialogue, just body language.
In panels 1-3, Logan would be explaining things to Kurt, his body language would be stubborn, straight backed, resolute.
would at first react with shock, leaning back, but then leaning forward, obviously asking (demanding?) a question, to which Logan would look away, fists clenched, perhaps with a jaw jutting out.
Panels 4-5 would have Kurt making some kind of statement or comment, on what the X-men (both branches) have been doing, to which Logan responds angrily, fists cocked, he's ready for a fight. The last panels (6 and 7) would be a denouement; Kurt using open hand gestures and body language, one arm reaching out for his friend in a "I cannot condone or permit, but I do understand" sort of thing while Logan's body language is a more "C**p, what have I been doing?" as the weight of the last few crossovers begin to sink in from talking to his friend, no longer straight backed or resolute, eyes wide, looking down as he massages his brow with one hand, the other, by his side, relaxed.
The 8th panel is a Manly-bro-hug as the two friends begin to reconcile. (
In the 9th panel we see Kitty Pryde curled up in a ball, crying, a telephone at her feet. Relief? Joy? Pain? Perhaps some combination thereof?
That's how i tend to imagine it anyway, (and wow it was more detailed than I thought, writing it out) but hey! I'll take a series thankyouveddymuch!
