BONUS REVIEW by ****Rick Berg****
Welp after 12 stunning issues, there had to be a breather issue, I guess. And this is that issue for sure. Nothing really important happens, actually nothing happens except a lot of talking, talking talking. The Summers clan lives on the moon. 1 panel, 2 tops should cover what takes up 90% of the issue. We meet next evil human who seems to be exactly like last one, meh. And the artist formerly know as Leinil Yu reminds us that Pepe Larraz has never looked or been better.
5 out of 10 Grahams
Hox and Pox,
one thousand years of ticks and tocks,
snikting away on Moira clocks.
Hickman, X-Men, very next gen,
all the readers saying what, when?
now another one 1 again.
Are we seeing now or then? Wait, that X was meant as ten?
Johnny's vox, a mystery box,
complete with Jean's bright red locks,
Artgerm makes her look the fox,
the building blocks of Hox and Pox,
have given us a book that rocks.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
