[X-23: Target X #1]
Mike Choi, your X-Force art is better than the art in this mini, but the art in this mini is still gorgeous and has it’s moments of brilliance I think (you know, when you’re not getting her body type wrong :/).
There are all these close ups of Laura’s eyes in this mini, and I think it’s a pretty cool way to express how she feels. I mean, we all know Laura isn’t much of a talker, so Choi chose to express her feelings about what’s happening through focusing solely in on her eyes.
And thus, just some panels of Laura’s eyes give me feelings. Oh, Laura baby, I love you so much.

Laura in sneakers?
Is it possible to be more in love with her? This is a legitimate question.
My blog is forever a Laura appreciation blog. Look at the skulls on her shirt, guys. LOOK.
COVER FOR AVENGERS ACADEMY #23
#22 has still yet to be shown. But OMG Laura is guest starring!! I am beyond excited!
Here’s what Christos had to say on it:
Marvel.com: Now on the cover to issue #23, we have Mettle flinging X-23 into the reader’s lap. How does Laura end up in AVENGERS ACADEMY?
Christos Gage: There’ll be a more extensive explanation in issue #23, but suffice it to say both the Avengers Academy faculty and the X-Men felt it would be beneficial. Laura has “baggage” with some of the X-Men kids she doesn’t have here. And she has struggled with some similar issues to cast members from AVENGERS ACADEMY, including wrestling with being a killer. So they’re hoping it will benefit all concerned. Of course, there are risks, too.
At least the old lady seems happy!
Phil Noto’s Laura faces are one of my most favorite things in this world.
So to finish my blogging of me crying about superheroes, I will end with Laura Kinney. Because, let’s be real, she has been sorely missed from my blog. Laura, baby, I love you so much. And you make me so sad.
Your self-esteem issues are relatable, but so off base. You are so great, Laura. I just wish you could recognize that.
