Don’t miss the issue everyone will be talking about – the stunning conclusion to the Infinity Wars!
Infinity Wars #6, written by Gerry Duggan with art and main cover by Mike Deodato Jr. is out December 19, 2018.
With Ahab hunting the time-traveling X-Men, it’s all hands on deck, as every X-Men team is called to arms and protect the remaining young mutants. But young Jean Grey and her bodyguards aren’t going to lie still for Ahab to come to them…
Events are in full swing right now and this latest X-event has not only been entertaining, it has far exceeded expectations. Extermination #3 ups the action with betrayals and moments that will get long time X fans to say “hell yeah.”
Writer Ed Brisson has focused on the time-displaced original X-Men and Ahab who has come back in time to do something to them. There’s also a younger Cable who’s up to something. This issue focuses on the plan to split up the remaining original X-Men in hopes of slowing down Ahab’s quest.
The battle in the X-Mansion continuing from last issue is solid and full of action with a solid explanation as to how Ahab is creating his new hounds. Yes, I said plural because more characters turn and each of those deliver entertaining moments. It also brings back something that felt so innocent before and shows it as anything but.
There’s the moments between Domino and Jean Grey as Domino explains her team’s connection with Cable which of course sets up the upcoming series featuring X-Force. To see these original members back together after so long is fantastic and again as a long time reader, it nails the nostalgia factor.
There’s also the sequence with the young Cyclops and a creative way to take care of him. That shows off a legacy character in a way that may get you to rethink their power and how they can use it to do a lot more damage than they have in the past.
The art by Pepe Larraz is fantastic and there are panels and scenes that look amazing. One in particular with Cannonball and Shatterstar with the background getting a little hazy is a work of brilliance and the visuals for the series match the excitement of the story itself. This is one of the few times where so much packed in really works as no detail is overlooked.
The event continues at a breakneck speed and delivers excitement that’s not expected and very welcome. It’s another example that events can work and work really well. It brings together so many different threads and delivers weaving in old and new. Add in fantastic art and you’ve got an X-event that’s one of the best in recent years.
