L'incontro-scontro tra le due May Parker e la reazione di Peter mi hanno fatto troppo ridere. Togliete Spider Man a Slott ed affidatelo a Krueger, vi prego!

I first read Earth X a few years ago. I was largely unimpressed and decided not to read the sequels: Universe X and Paradise X. The whole series spans five large trade paper backs and I didn’t want to invest in the story. For some reason I decided to pick up Earth X again and give it a shot, and this time I was quickly engrossed… or at least interested.

Is Earth X a possible future or an alternate reality? No matter which of these possibilities holds true it all comes out as fantastic story for Marvel's superheros. Exceptional art and an excellent plot by Alex Ross make these a superb read. Very recommended

This one is a little more dense than the other X books, and a little less clear. I think the only way to read this is to read it in the trade paperback format. if you had to wait a month for every installment you'd lose track of what was going on.

When the plot got too complex I got bored with it. The art is still amazing, its just the story that is a little too over-developed.

The story continues, keeps us interested and reading past the hour we should have stopped.
