Pace is really awful, they don't have story for fill a issue. So they have pages and more pages of characters talking with each other like idiots.

So now they create a problem with ressurrection, completely nosense.

X of swords is really awful and no-sense.

The art is good.

All the same they had to do a lot of explaining even in those issues. Given the timing of events with Rockslides death it makes sense they would only discover this after someone died. No one on Arakko was gonna tell them their resurrection don't work lol

maelstron - Oct 3, 2020

no one knew about the ressurrection, so no one could warn. That wasn't what I criticized. My critic is about how the problem with ressurrection has nothing to do with how the ressurrection was presented.

Wow. Leah Williams knocks it out of the park. The stakes have become more real, the set up gets more intriguing, data pages about Otherworld are SUPER interesting, and moments like Lorna's suffering or Xavier shaming Apocalypse were stellar. Also Moira showed up briefly!!! X of Swords is proving that the X writers know what they are doing!

Art is very 90s like. Gedeon uses a really old school style of art, but with something like Metal, it doesn't feel too out of place, honestly I think that have Gedeon doing the art for this one was quite unique.

Strong issue. A lot to talk about but at the same time a lot still left to happen. Next issue is going to be stuffed.

But this one, this is good stuff. Jason getting a lot of good mileage from this series. A very controversial scene near the end between him and Barbera. But still a lot to like aside from that.

It's like every time you respond, you make it even clearer that you were offended by the content. You're perpetuating PC culture even more than this comic has by being so incredibly sensitive to a single sentence. if you care more about being pc than focusing on the merits of the comic then ill pass.

A faacinating conclusion to this story that leads you not to a simple answer, but to a newfound drive and a will to face the Question we all encounter in ourselves.

Art is excellent. Writing is strong, dialogue is natural. Some bits are mysterious and ambiguous but that is in the nature of this character.
