I've been a comic fan ever since I picked up the first issue of Astonishing X-men. I truly enjoyed Whedon's run with that comic and how much he made me care for each character in the main roster. Heck I even really felt sorry for Wing and how he died. It wasn't until I picked up other comics that I realized how good I had it with that 24 issue run. Bendis, Fraction...the list can go on and on. I found myself disappointed in the mainstream comics and nearly gave up on reading. At least until I started reading Gillen and found myself enjoying these characters once more!
I'm a huge fan of Uncanny and the Extinction team he's created! Gillen is the reason for this surprising turnaround in my comic interest. He's changed old favorites, Colossus, to give them a newfound interest and brought back old enemies that I had little idea existed (Phalanx). However it's his work with Sinister that's truly awesome. If anyone hasn't read Uncanny X-men 14 I suggest you go spend five bucks on it immediately. It made me love the guy again.
Could things change? Could he go full retard? Sure, but I'm enjoying the ride for now. I'm sure there are others around that enjoy Gillen as much as myself and this thread is for them! Jason Aaron can't get all the love around here, eh?
