5.0 out of 5 stars "While you slept, the world changed."
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 7, 2021
House of X/Powers of X collects House of X #1-6 and Powers of X #1-6 (2019) written by Johnathan Hickman with artwork from Pepe Larraz (H.O.X. #1-6 + P.O.X. #6), R.B. Silva (P.O.X. #1-6), and inks/colours done by Marge Garcia (H.O.X. + P.O.X. #1-6).

I was nervous about picking this up as my previous read from Hickman was Infinity and I wasn't a fan, it was too big, required previous reading, too many parts going on, confusing, massive cast and to me felt like it desperately wanted to be a movie with the white pages with a title breaking things up every few pages was frustrating. The fact that 3 separate stories were going on and you had no idea of knowing if what you were reading was Avengers, New Avengers or Infinity on top of being new to comics when I read it paired with what I previously mentioned left me confused and disappointed. Luckily that isn't the case here and after seeing Hickman in this new light I'm considering grabbing the Hardcover copy I got on offer from a local shop if I ever wanted to read it again.

This story is EPIC.

I'm a big fan of X-Men, and it's one of the reasons I bit the bullet even though I didn't like Infinity, sadly my collection doesn't show much X-Men but the themes and ideas are something that have stuck with me and I easily prefer them to the Avengers because of it. It's not often that I read something a second time in a short period of time but this is one of those comics and I'd easily pick it up again. What Hickman has done here is reinvent the X-Men, not the characters but the ideas and what they stand for and their place in the world. The words "While you slept, the world changed" stand true to this collection.

Charles Xavier sends a telepathic message announcing the new mutant nation of Krakoa, a safe haven for any mutant who wishes to be away from the fear and hatred of mankind while offering miracle drugs to those who recognize Krakoa as a nation. it's also in this same message that Xavier announces that mutants will claim their place as the inheritors of Earth which spins governments on their heads and with a new threat, humanity does what it always does…

Overall this is a fantastic story that I can't praise enough, if your an X-Men fan this should be in your collection. I can't think of anything off hand that I didn't like, there are surprises, some fun characters like Nimrod and nods to other events and stories. One thing I loved about this is the extra contented provided in between pages, you'll get a break from the comic with some information and shows how much thought went into this comic (I'll include a picture as an example).This isn't a action oriented comic for anyone who is hoping for it, it's the birth of a nation. I really don't want to say anything else as the story simply should be read.

I'll be including pictures of the comic so you can see the artwork or even read the story of you want but Amazon randomises the order of the pages so I'll quote the first dialogue or artwork so you can read it in order. 1 - "Ambassador. You look tired" .2 - "Personally, I'd settle for a bit of…". 3 - "Why bother? It's not a war ….". 4 - "I'm fine. When will we be meeting with Xavier?". 5 - "Can anyone travel through a gateway … ". 6 - "The interface has the count…." 7 - "....and we've entered a whole new world". 8 - Wolverine laughing / "welcome home Jean". 9 - "There she is…". 10. "Okay Doctor Gregor…". 11 - "Doctor Smith please handle ….". 12 - "I think mistakes of this scale…". 13 - "...if we need more, we'll have her build them". I'll include some other pics as well.

Hopefully you found this review helpful and happy reading.
