VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy
(W) Jonathan Hickman
(A/CA) Pepe Larraz
THE INEVITABLE FUTURE. The revolutionary tale of Mutantkind's rise comes to a conclusion that will lay the groundwork of the X-Men's stories for years to come! Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (AVENGERS, FANTASTIC FOUR, SECRET WARS) and Marvel Young Gun artist Pepe Larraz (EXTERMINATION, AVENGERS) wrap the series that changes everything! Rated T+

There will be no '10' for this issue of House of X. Its a fine issue to be sure, far less culty than the previous, far more Ewok celebration in its mass gatherings. We have to look at the code to know what we're seeing in this issue isn't important. The code, it seems, is color.
There are no random events with Jonathan Hickman. Everything matters, even if it matters strictly because it doesn't matter. If you look in the back of the book at the reading order, you'll see House of X #2 in red (Moira is a mutant, dead a bunch of times, and has the best shot at saving all mutants everywhere), you'll see House of X #5 in red (five mutants together make up a whole new mutant power to bring back any dead mutant exactly as they were with their memories intact making all mutants immortal), and Powers of X #6 is in...red.
We learn things that matter in the red ones. There's little chance things are what they seem. What that actually means will have to wait for a week.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
