X-Treme X-Men #7 - You Can't Go Home Again, Part 2 Review

X-Treme X-Men #7 Review

X-Treme X-Men #7 Cover
If the team can't defeat the Xavier from the United States of California...what will happen to Nightcrawler?

Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 2/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 3/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 4/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 3.4

- I'm not a fan of this cover, Dazzler looks strange and have no idea who that is behind her, it almost looks like Nightcrawler, but it's probably Sage. Also I have no idea what the solicit is talking about this story arc has had nothing to do with an evil Xavier it deals with Danger. Again like X-Treme X-Men #6 - You Can't Go Home Again, Part 1 the art had that Æon Flux feel, but worse. And while I like Æon Flux I just can't get into it in the comic. I mean one scene it looks like Dazzler is normal and the next she looks anorexic. Art aside I have been enjoying this series as a whole. This issue concludes the arc with Kurt returning to his universe that was taken over by robots. I didn't really care for how the issue ended, and the final scenes with Kurt had me confused, at first it seemed like he was giving us an evil laugh, but then we see him being coddled and crying. I'm excited to see the next issue where Xavier Head has recruited a new team to help him comes face to face with the existing one.
