EldestRisk's X-Force #26 - Second Coming: Chapter 5 review

Avatar image for EldestRisk

Finally some goosebumps from a comic.

 They had been preparing us for this one. Everyone speculated and made assumptions, but let me tell you, it's nothing till you read it.
 
The Good:
About the death, it was spectacular, i was worried that it would be forced, but it was superbly written and drawn, emotional, shocking and beautiful. There was this really good scene, when a part of the team finds out about the death, that was brilliantly drawn. Aside from the death the issue was good, I enjoyed specially seeing Bastion finally getting some action. Another thing I really liked was to see Cypher finally being drawn like I remember him.
 
The Bad:
I liked this issue so much, that I dare to say the only thing I didn't liked, was that it was over.
 
Final Verdict:
It's a great finale for this second coming first month. The crossover has been so well written that for me is advancing a little too fast, that is actually not a good thing, it frightens me a little, because that could mean that the next weeks will be slow or boring, but it should depend on how the writers develop. As the tittle said it gave me some goosebumps, and I have to say that is something that it didn't happened for me me since a long long time. (anyone remembers when was the last time a comic made you feel like that?). So I gave it a 5 stars and I truly believe it deserves it. Best issue so far, can't wait for the next ones.
