X of Swords gets its true start with part one of twenty two chapters (who knows how interconnected they are) and the field is set for a number of Apocalypse story lines to come to a head. In this podcast rather than outright review or talk about the plot page by page I take a top down look at the art by Pepe Larraz and colors by Marte Gracia.
I contrast what tarot cards traditionally mean compared to what inferred in Jonathan Hickman and Tini Howard's writing. Apocalypse is a main character in the story and his interactions with other characters have been important and the plot reveals itself when you look at the characters featured in this new X-men crossover event.
