Reign of X: New Comics for July 28th - Wolverine, Cable, and SWORD

July 31, 2021

We're traveling all around the Marvel Universe this week! From Madripoor, to demon dimensions, and all the way out to the Kree Throneworld. Wolverine delivers in a really great issue that jumps to the top of Alicia's pile and Justin calls one of the best of the run. We say goodbye to Cable, the series, but not before we throw in a few confusing time-traveling and clone-related conundrums. And things get annihilated in Sword - Throneworld and that dinner table 😬 Good thing Brand and her team conveniently show up at the right time to save the day... We talk about Wolverine #14, Cable #12, and SWORD #7
