So welcome to day 1 of X-Kiddies Week where I will be evaluating the newest crop of X-Kiddies showing up in the pages of my three favourite X-Books. Let’s jump right in at the deep end with Iara dos Santos a.k.a Shark girl after the break.
X-Kiddies V.S X-Kiddies
So if you’re reading Any of the X-books right now you would have been introduced to quite a few new X-kidds over the past 6 months, Which in Comics time is about a few weeks to a month I’m reckoning. And now we’ve had some time to get to know our new X-Kiddies I thought it would be cool to evaluate this new crop of X-Men that we are supposed to be investing our time in. I’ll be evaluating them all on 4 things giving them a score out of 5 and then I’ll summarize their worth and compare each. The highest score any 1 X-kiddie can get is 20. The evaluation categories are:

Okay so I just saw this preview of the forthcoming X-Men title by Wood and Coipel, and it doesn’t even have words but I’m drawn into this story already. What’s going on with Mercury and Bling? What’s happening with this Planes and trains deal with Jubilee and why is Jubilee crying as this baby’s sucking on her face? Is that last panel too adorable and sad at the same time? There’s something so normal yet fantastic in this one page alone. Why is it so striking to me? I have to get this issue. Coipel, you are such a star to me.

Today’s tunes is coming to you a bit late but it’s still Tuesday so I’m not too concerned. A couple of weeks ago I got my access to Spotify back and it was glorious. I have this playlist named “Sample.” It’s for me to dump any old artist, track or album in there to have a listen to and try it out to see if I like it. I then put the ones I like in Bi-monthly playlists that show what I’ve been listening to in that time period. It’s kind of fun to go back to playlists of months gone by and see what I was listening to back then.
Anyway Kate Nash, who due to my not being fond of her second album, has not been on any current playlist. I loved Made of Bricks but was not feeling My Best Friend Is You. But that changed when I listened to the Death Proof EP and then Girl Talk. I think Nash brings back that quirky self that made me fall in Love with Mouthwash and Foundations. I think Nash really starts to branch out a little bit and has embraced her Faster Pussycat Self and I love it.
These songs have the same Nash sound but something of a retro 50s chick rocker feel. There’s a retro Vibe to the songs and a certain Tarantino vibe. This makes sense as Death Proof was inspired by the actual Quentin Tarantino movie by the same name.
Stand out tracks: DeathProof, Fri-end?, Lullaby For An Insomniac, and my ultimate favorite right now, Sister.
Check out the live video below of Sister.
