Review: Xogenasys #3
I love sports movies, as they all are a bit hopeful and can be realistic. I think most viewers can identify with the story even if they never played a lick of organized sports because they recognize the fight. That ferocity, that anger, that world on your shoulders attitude. It is what most of us carry in ourselves.
This is what makes the Rocky franchise so indelible. As we see how he was the every man and how he persevered despite his humble beginnings. The best parts of these movies were the training montage, as they showed how these fighters for every inch. In Xogenasys #3 we find Darius training to be a pro player.
We find Darius showing up at the gym, where he is trained by the gym’s owner’s daughter, who is quite a fighter herself. Darius, like many men, often underestimates women, he finds that she more than knows what she is doing. AS he soon finds the rigors of professional training more than he expected. By the issue’s end, just as Darius feels he gets some progress, his trainer has something else in mind.
Overall, Xogenasys #3 is a great chapter which more than adds to the great hall of training montages. The story by Corey Mikell is outstanding. The art by Sebastian Riera is stylish. Altogether, this story pumps up on the action.
