X-Corp #5 (X-Corp by Tini Howard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is odd…I had no idea this series was ending and now it seems to have finished. Suddenly. Out of the blue.
I guess this was inevitable, the series got off to a bad start. The first few issues were dull and confusing, and an X-Men book that was more about corporate takeovers than superhero adventures was always going to be a tough sell. But cancelling it now really makes the whole thing feel pointless.
So, this comic is ok. The writing’s solid and the art is decent, but it’s not something I can recommend to anyone else because…well…it’s over already. Unless I’m wrong and it isn’t. But I do wonder if any of the plot threads in this comic will be picked up elsewhere.
Right now it feels like a lot of promising new X-books are fizzling out, and that’s a worrying trend.
