Was Santagati rushed this issue, or does he just like thicker finishes?
The funnest miniseries of the year finally comes to a close. I’m really going to miss this adventure.
The non-Kitty parts didn’t hold my attention, it just felt off to me. I really think it was the inks, it reminded me too much of Bill Sienkiewicz’s inks over Sal Buscema’s pencils during their time together on Spectacular Spider-Man. Which I do hate to keep harping on that as I love Sienkiewicz has an artist but as solely an Inker, I would prefer anyone else. It was probably just a style they were going for but it has ruined me for thick inks. If it was a black and white comic, I would be cool with it but it just looks off. That’s the best I can describe it.
Issue opens at Karolinska Hospital. Sweden. Wolverine is fighting Mama Doop, trying to get some answers.
In Doopspace. Poor Doop is having to escape from a hundred versions of himself.
Jean Grey School. The Brotherhood of Evil X-Men and the Present Day Regular X-Men are also having to fight off dozens of Doops. Raze starts losing his cool, if he ever had it. Bling! confronts him and Xavier Junior shuts her down. Rachel and Xavier Junior are talking. Xavier Junior is whining as done of this happened originally.
Wolverine and Anarchist are in Dooospace. Wolverine finds Doop and reveals the secret, but not to us.
Back in the Real World. Bling! is not thrilled by Xavier Junior. Rachel wonders how Kitty is holding up.
In the Jean Grey School’s Lab. Kitty wants to get back to Doop, he’s in trouble. She starts phasing into Doopspace.
Doopspace. U-Go Girl, which this is the first time I have really noticed her hero name. Pretty clever. She’s in a hot tub with Anarchist. Apparently, there is a Hot Tub Rule to not place one’s foot between another’s legs. Makes sense. Turns out, it was Kitty doing the touching.
Doop and Wolverine are talking. Doop is worried that he upset Kitty. Wolverine tells him that Kitty is pretty tough. Doop returns Wolverine back to school. Doop puts a piece of him into Wolverine’s ear, causing him to forget all of the Doop business.
Everyone at the school starts forgetting. Wolverine walks into the room. Kate Pryde stabs Wolverine, turning into Raze. So this happened twice.
Doop finds Kitty out of the hot tub. They leave so they can talk. Doop admits he had a bad meltdown. As oppose to all of those good ones, you hear so much about.
Doop reveals to Kitty, and us, his big secret. His Mama and Papa are one and the same.
Thanks to my pal, SlickNickShady for the second two images :
Kitty explains – Doop is asexually reproduced hermaphrodites. Our Doop is the same. Doop withdraws his marriage proposal. Kitty is not super relieved, Doop had started growing on her.
Doop has said some nice things to Kitty.
So they kiss! Kitty even gives Doop a little tongue. Doop is the fifth person Kitty has ever kissed! Now we can create a Top Five! Actually, her and Star Lord have not kissed yet. It is just a matter of time though.
Kitty doesn’t want to go to school. She wants to stay in Doopspace. She is happy there. Doop realizes that she is just avoiding making a tough decision.
I’m so happy that Lafuente got to draw these Kitty pages.
Kitty is offended that she can’t like weird things. Also, Doop tastes like spicy peanut butter, so now we can never unlearned that.
Doop gets Kitty to admit that she is ready to leave the school and join Cyclops’ side. Doop also reveals this entire adventure was to show Kitty that she can do anything. The ring and proposal were only props.
If Doop and Kitty were a couple, then he wouldn’t be part of the margins – he would be part of the main story. Dman right!
Sometime Later. Kitty announces she is leaving the Jean Grey School.
Thus the best miniseries of the year comes to an end. I want a sequel already! More Kitty and Doop, please!
