Inferno #2 (2021) Review
Summary: Would be nice if I knew what was going on. Can only really recommend this if you have read the previous stories in this storyline and know the characters.
Another X-Men series involving the island of Krakoa that seems to be part of a larger storyline I do not know much about. Even though it is only part two of this story I am completely lost and do not know who is who or why they care so much about a council election.
This would be one to follow if you already know these characters and the storyline before this one. I am not that big a fan of stories that require prior knowledge straight off the bat to get what is going on as where does it end.
The X-Men are notorious for having many different reboots and plotlines that makes it difficult to follow unless you are super into it. One of the difficulties adapting it to the screen is this particular aspect as they all come to the point in the comic series where it gets too hard and they end up going back to start again and then go make the exact same mistake.
I could only really recommend this one if you are already following the wider storyline this is a part of or are a fan of the writer and artist involved.
