X-23 #1: Writer: Marjorie Liu. Artist: Will Conrad.
Quick Review: This issue begins with X-23 having nightmares about Wolverine offering her a spot by his side in Hell. As this comic goes along we see that X-23 is unable to really communicate with any of her fellow mutants on Utopia. Emma Frost blames Cyclops for X-23's lack of social skills, since it was Cyclops who allowed Wolverine to place her on X-Force. To make up for this, Cyclops sends X-23 to a former mutant half-way house where she can try to learn from the people there. This issue ends with X-23 waking up at the half-way house with flames and bodies laying all around her.
Quick Thoughts: Meh. First off, a confession... I hate the X-23 character. I can't think of a more uninteresting character than a teenage, female clone of Wolverine. With that said this issue wasn't that bad. It wasn't great, but it wasn't horrid, which is a testament to Marjorie Liu's writing skills. I'll probably pick up the second issue of this series, but I'm not sure how long I'll be sticking with this series.
Score: 7 out of 10.I have no idea why I scanned this page...
