All the romances in this second collection of Marvel's "Exiles" comics, which was fortunately understated such that none of them felt overwhelming or sappy. I still can't get over how round the animation is for these; it just looks...odd, to me, in a way for which I'm still searching for proper adjectives.

This is a good thing to read having seen "Thor: Ragnarok" because of its subplot regarding the superhero games--also, hello Bruce Banner! Welcome!

I must say I did not at all see the point of t

Loved, loved, loved this volume.

On top of me enjoying the living' heck out of the concept in general, there were some many nice character moments and artistic choices within these pages.

There was a silent issue. No dialogue.

There was a greater narrative introduced outside of the alternate realities.

There was a big ol' battle we'd never see in the 616. building. Individuals, romantic coupling, and team-building.

All of this is done in an art style and tone that is right

Continuing the great x-book chronological read of '17...

This continues to be such a fun read, a great lowkey comic series (that promises with this volume to begin to be something a bit more...). Really looking forward to continuing the adventures of this group.
Reprints Exiles (1) #5-11. The Exiles are hopping worlds and adjusting to being a team. First they team with Alpha Flight to take down the Hulk but don't realize that that they are being followed by another team of Exiles known as Weapon X. Then, Earth has been overtaken by Skrulls and the Exiles are thrust into a gladiator battle and the liberation of Earth could cost the Exiles another member.

This book is where the series really gets going. It manages to keep the same overall quality of the previous volume. Winick is still telling fun stories, Mike McKone is a good as ever. Jim Calafiore does a good job filling in, but I just don't like his art as much. He can tell a story, though, and that counts for a lot. This volume contains a very emotional scene regarding Nocturne and Thunderbird. It's handled just about perfectly. Well done Winick.

I'm happy to find this read is just as good as the series goes along. The reality jumping plot device took a bit of a back seat for character exploration in this volume. It also saw the death and replacement of yet another member of the partner (will this be a regular occurrence?) as well as one member getting pregnant. It will be very interesting seeing how that plays out.

I love everything Marvel. The storylines are incredible! They have everything you could want: action, adventure, comedy, romance, political intrigue, allegories, metaphors, etc. Some stories drag, some end too soon.

Volume 2 in this series continues the fun as it takes on missions including the Hulk, Skrulls, and even Galactus. Judd Winick really makes these characters fun, (even if Morph is a little TOO comedic). Great series to read!

The Exiles keep jumping realities, and no character is safe. It gives a whole new side to Morph, and you actually start to understand why he always acts like a child. The skrull storyline, and the Alpha Flight one were good variations on a theme. A good read.

The stakes are raised as our favorite reality-hopping heroes find themseelves behind some pretty big 8-balls - and not everyone gets out alive. The crew must not only face the might of an enraged Hulk, but also tackle the biggest enemy ever - the mighty Galactus!
Much like the previous volumes there are some great scenes and wonderful ideas here, but the book continues to rely too heavily on narration, telling us things that the story should be showing us instead.

I thought that the story line was pretty good, but I don't like when it seems like a certain political agenda is being push. There was also to much sexuality were there should have been more action. Overall I give the book exactly 3.0 stars.

Exiles is one of the few X-titles that I enjoy. I'd recommend this.

Coming off from a great volume one, this one wasn't that great. It was kind of a repeat. And didn't really have anything going for it. Hopefully the series gets better.
