    As I’ve said in my previous reviews of Dead X-Men, Steve Foxe is running on all cylinders. This book has been a breath of fresh air from all of the X-Men drama going on. These characters are rarely featured on prominent teams, some may even be regularly ridiculed by readers, but here in this book, they work. Foxe has the voices for these X-Men perfectly in tune, and the fun adventure through time and space has been a blast. I’m almost sad to see it end in the next issue.

    The art in this series has been great. It’s interesting to see three illustrates working in tandem so well. There’s a lot of great synergy on this art team. Frank Martin’s colors have been unreal so far. He plays with shades of rich colors in a dynamic way. Each scene and setting feels unique and deep. I find each panel a delight to look at. Each character feels so unique while still merging into a cohesive team.

    Dead X-Men #4 isn’t as momentous, but it fills in some gaps and delivers some good character work as it wraps up that series. I’d really like to see this team return in some capacity, but it doesn’t seem as though the “From the Ashes” relaunch will deliver that. C’est la vie!

    One word: phew. After reading the finale to Dead X-Men #4, it might be best to take a break and get some fresh air or a reset before continuing on your daily duties. Steve Foxe’s script for this issue is the most intricate of the series, overly dense and chock full of exposition. If it wasn’t clear by now, Dead X-Men is a series born out of the need to connect the dots of the wider “Fall of X” event, even if it does make for some awfully jarring moments.
