House Of X #2 may have been one of the most well-received superhero comics this year. But with every issue of the HOXPOX series having upended everything you learnt in the previous issue, it’s no indication of where these series are going or what that state of affairs will be when we all get their, collectively.
Hickman’s work has been accused of being unemotional, cold, obsessed with structure and form rather than character and conflict. I have to say I like the structure, it’s certainly a Steven Moffat approach over a Russell T Davies approach. But is it true?
Bleeding Cool has learned that House Of X #4 may potentially change that response, to this series at least. As a comic described as ‘heartbreaking’ and one that ‘makes you tear up, just with one line’.
Forget about the free sunflower seeds that came with the first issue, maybe retailers need to be handing out tissues?
Although the cover does look a little bloody…
HOUSE OF X #4 (OF 6)
