"A Good, Ol' Fashioned Rodeo"
I want to start by saying that this issue does not have a lot in it when it comes to overall story line other than the last couple pages. That said, it was still a good and fun read simply based on the fact that I love the characters in the book.
This issue has Kaine being drug to the rodeo (which he doesn't really want to go to, let alone wear the hat) which gives him a peak into how some women can love monsters. He had been pushing away Annabelle because he knew he was a monster and felt that he couldn't be with her because of it. While he is battling with the, The Armadillo (some Texas hero/villain) shows up to profess his love for one of the cowboy's fiance. After a little whooping from Kaine, The Armadillo is shown some love from his ex and Kaine realizes that even monsters can love. He finally gives in to Annabelle.
After this we see on the last page some relatively fishy stuff that Annabelle does...it is intriguing to see what is on the horizon for Kaine and his friends. I hope that the next issue that promises Wolverine (in ANOTHER friggen Marvel book) doesn't bring it down too much. Don't get me wrong, I do not hate Wolverine. I just think he is overplayed.
