Returning to this classic thread, out today... A-Babies Vs. X-Babies
, wrapped in Scottie Young's variant baby cover of the Avengers and X-Men fighting.
It's cute. It's pretty. (The art is by Gurihiru, who drew Thor and the Warriors Four
, which is one of my favorite Thor stories.) It's fun. It's narratively thin.
Baby Captain America goes to bed and discovers that his favorite teddy bear -- Bucky Bear -- has been stolen by the kid with red glasses in the house across the street. So Captain America assembles the Avengers -- including a Baby Samuel L. Jackson Nick Fury -- and they are going to take Bucky Bear back.
Naturally, Baby Cyclops doesn't want to give up Bucky Bear, and he assembles his own team -- and there's a funny line about how the X-Men lack a rallying cry as simple as "Avengers assemble."
What follows is ten or so pages of babies wailing on babies. The Storm/Black Panther panels are great. Wolverine's encounter in space is hilarious. Cyclops is a dick, even as a baby. And it has a WTF-level ending.
Like I said, it's cute. Has nothing to do, plot-wise, with Avengers Vs. X-Men
, and it's not as good as the Squirrel Girl/Pixie "battle" in AVX Vs.
#6. But, if you want a few laughs and you can get a good deal on it, it's not devoid of interest.
