House of X #2 (of 6)
“The Uncanny Life of Moira X”
Writer: Jonathan Hickman
Artist: Pepe Larraz
Cover Art: Pepe Larraz & Marte Gracia
Jonathan Hickman’s new run on the X-Men continued this week with an issue that starts to unravel some of the questions that House of X#1 and Power of X#1 asked while still leaving the reader with plenty of uncertainty of what is going on. I know I had plenty of questions to ask when I finished reading the book, which is something that I like.
Seems that Moira McTaggart is more important to the X-Men lore than anyone could have guessed. Without spoiling anything, Moira appears to be the key to the series that is resetting the history of everyone’s favorite mutants.
Everything is weaved together well, and it is obvious that Hickman has done a tremendous job of planning a whole new timeline while not eliminating anything that had come before.
The art is great too with Pepe Larraz.
I do not want to give anything away so I am stopping here. This has hooked me enough that I am as fascinated as can be of where this is heading. I am more interested in the X-Men than I have been in years.
