omertalvendetta's X-23 #9 - Collision, Pt. 3 review

Not Sure How I Feel About This One...

Cover:

This is honestly the worst cover I have seen in a very long time.  They both look constipated and extremely ugly, and it is just not very appealing.

The Good:

The story itself is full of mystery.  This isn't Daken's comic, but because both characters are written by the same writer, you obviously get the proper characterization of both that you would get in their own comic, and it's a definite bonus here. As for X-23, this issue- hell, this crossover, has breathed new life to a series that had started to become stale.  Obviously, it's hard to tell what's in store for Laura from this series alone, but hopefully it continues to deliver this stories with this kind of tone.

The Bad:

Some of the art was pretty bad, actually, especially Daken's expressions.  In addition, the constant mentions of X-23's body odor were really distracting, but I guess this issue was all about smells, which is kind of stupid in a way.  I understand the heightened senses, but it all just came across cheesy.  Also, the very last panel didn't really leave me excited for next month's issue.  I wasn't very impressed with the direction the Collision story line is culminating, I guess is what I really mean.

Overall:

Things kind of head downhill with this issue.  We are given great characterizations, as usual, of both of the characters in question, but some of the details and the plot itself has unfortunately become incomprehensible.  I do enjoy the mystery behind Daken's character and his intentions, but I'm a little disappointed that we got what felt like too much Daken and very little X-23.  

3.5/5

    Synopsis: In part 3 of Collision, Laura and Daken team up for their own personal reasons.What's Good? After what I saw Daken do in his own series, his presence in the third part of this crossover in X-23 was gladly welcomed. He wants something in the long run, and Laura, whether she realizes it or not, will help him get it. Laura gets her moments as well in her own series showing how deadly she can truly be. There's also possibly a third party in this with a mysterious woman (who might be Tyger)...
