Cover & Solicit 4/5


Again they main cover sticks with the theme of the A+X books where it displays a posed image of the two characters from one story and small circles with the others. The second variant is a combo cover with the next issue similar to how issues 1 & 2 were, but I'm not a fan of the art. The second variant with Gambit and Hawkeye on the other-hand looks great and I'd definitely pick it up.

Art, Colors & Inking 3/5


For the first story I was actually pleased with the artists style. There were times when Storm looked odd, and the coloring might have been a little too much, but for the most part it looked good. The second stories are was also well done and the colors were vibrant, nothing really to complain about there.

Layout & Flow 4/5


The flow of both stories was almost perfect. I did have a slight problem at first getting my bearings in the Storm & Panther story because they jumped around a bit not only with time but location. The interaction between the characters in both stories was fun, and I feel that is the intent of the series.

Story 4/5


The first story involves Storm and Panther in Africa. AIM agents have invaded Wakanda because they thing it will be easy pickings. It's fun to see the henchmen argue with each other it reminded me of a Three Stooges sketch. As one of the men get away from T'Challa, lightning strikes him down. We then get thrown around Africa as Storm (who still hasn't been seen) helps out the citizens, and T'Challa. After the lack luster AvsX issue with these two and the aftermath of the event it's nice to see them interact. The second story involves Gambit and Hawkeye saving the day. As a monster attacks a play and takes a young girl hostage, the two compete with each other. They don't complete to save her as much as both men are trying to impress her enough to get her phone #. This was a great interaction between the two members and it's fun to see both solo stars team-up. If you like the old Marvel Team-up issues and enjoy a fun read then I'd highly recommend checking out the A+X series.

Verdict 3.7


Purchase A+X #3 on Amazon
