Graphic Novel Reviews: House of M
Graphic Novel Reviews Part 1: House of M
This particular graphic novel is one of the first that I have read. It also is the first of a eight book series (Nine if you include the prelude). But, From then on I knew I loved graphic novels a whole lot more than short comic books. Not only are they longer but your alright if it has a cliff hanger at the end because it has already given you so much.
House of M is not just a X-Men book as you can see in the picture it incorporates the avengers as well as other characters from the marvel universe that some people might not recognize. It is however a X-Men problem that arises from one particular person. And, a difficult decision has to be made.
What I really enjoyed about this graphic novel is that it's a kind of alternate universe story. In which you see so many of your favorite characters in totally different perspective. And, the artwork is impeccable as well as the dialogue.
A Little Bit of the Plot
The Mutant and Avenger, Scarlett Witch becomes unstable. Her powers to contol reality becomes a threat to the world. And, the X-Men and Avengers try to decide what to do with her. But, in a blink of an eye the reality as they know it changes and only one man remembers the truth.
