    X #21 is another start to a story you don't want to miss when X finds himself facing forces he doesn't know how to fight against. We've moved beyond just simply fighting street gangs, robbers, skin traders, mobsters, drug dealers, and arm dealers. The conclusion of this issue takes things to a whole new level. Read Full Review

    I didnt really find anything wrong about this issue except it's going to be in a crossover with Captain Midnight which I have no problems about. Also the color palette for the background environments seem the same with minor color alteration. I havent read Captain Midnight, so Ill have to pick up those issues down the line. The dialogue from Duane Swierczynski is good and solid introducing a new unlikely ally into the fray of blood and bullets. X has really grown on me since i have been reading this series and I will stick with it to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Although I'm a big fan of this series, I can't help but feel like a lot of the issue was spent just kind of going through the motions so we could get to the explosive ending. You get some gruesomely beautiful scenes of X doing what X does best, and there's a bit of tension with Leigh and her stalker"but we all knew who her stalker was going to be, especially if you read the intro. And if you know who the stalker is, you know who else is coming-so I can't really justify buying this issue, maybe just pick it up off the rack and skim through it. If you read the past few issues you can pretty much tell what happens in this issue without even reading the whole thing. I have faith in the rest of the story arc being great, but I'd be lying if I said this issue wasn't a bit of a let-down. Read Full Review
