Spoilers, Top Story

Marvel Comics and X Of Swords: Stasis #1 Spoilers and Review follows.

X Of Swords Part 11 Gets The Action Going For The Dawn Of X X-Men Or Does It?!

The book has a few variant covers in addition to the above.

Plus the main cover.

We open with a storyline catch-up page with a dramatis personae.

We then have the swordbearers of Earth…

…contrasted with their Arakko counterparts…

…who appear more ruthless.

Most of the issue is setting up and introducing the swordbearers of Arakko.

However, a variant cover names them all for readers.

As did an earlier teaser image.

We then get a page explaining their swords.

We then pivot to Earth’s swordbearers who have arrived at Saturnye’s castle and are bequeathed Tarot Cards…

…of all different manners that seemingly tease the future, but…

…Apocalypse doesn’t like the card he’s been given.

So, he gets a new Tarot Card from Saturnye…

…which sets up a big reveal of…

…the leader of the Arakko swordbearers; his wife?!

The book ends with a briefing on the Tarot Cards, that building on the first set of cards, with…

…an updated X Of Swords checklist with an error on it.

The Pulse:

An intriguing issue with great art, but bereft of action and we’re 1/2 way through this event. Hopefully the action starts soon. 6 out of 10.
