The biggest change this issue is Davide Gianfelice taking over for Roberto De La Torre on art. Gianfelice is a certainly a capable artist and his pages look good, but he doesn't quite fit this series the way De La Torre did. The art is clearer, simpler as opposed the dark, gritty look the book had in the past four issues. Horror Show looks less horrifying, for instance. The world lacks that destroyed, futile feeling that used to haunt the pages. It's not that Gianfelice is doing a bad job, but his art just doesn't mesh with the mood and setting of this series the way previous artists have. Read Full Review
You want my opinion on these two issues? Well one issue is certainly better than the other. Issue five wasn't that good. It felt like a filler honestly. The only thing good about it is that it showed Jean Grey's past. Art wise it felt toned down and I didn't feel the post apocalyptic setting that I admired from the first three. I'm not saying that this was bad but it wasn't a good issue. The cover had a flaming Jean Grey and we got an issue full of dialog and a suicide. Issue six however was an upgrade artistically but the story remained with something missing. I want more action Lapham! Don't tease me with a quick little scrap between Colossus and Cyclops. Going back to the art, Davide was on point with continuing the feel of humanities depression. This of course leads me to my final judgment of both issues. I give issue number four a 6 out of 10 while issue six gets a 7 out of 10. Fans of the series will be happy to see some history and pasts revealed but no kicking ass. Read Full Review
