X-Corp #4 (2021) Review
Summary: Feels like coming in the middle of a conversation and trying to work out what is going on. Maybe go back to the start to find out.
Set around the internal restructuring of a corporation based around the X-Men the company struggles with the politics of its board and investors. I thought this would be an interesting take on this story but I obviously missed something as I am lost.
The artwork feels quite sparse and there are no familiar characters unless you are super into the X-Men or have seen some of these people before. I do appreciate when series try to do something different but it feels like coming in on a conversation with no context and trying to work it out afterwards.
One of the major plot threads of the story seems to be some sort of multi-billion dollar business built up by the X-Men so this must be in a different timeline than the other stories.
If you have been following this series already then I would recommend it, everyone else maybe wait for an extended edition or go back to the first issue and read from there.
