This review is from: X-23: Innocence Lost TPB (Graphic Novel Pb) (Paperback)
As a casual reader of the Marvel universe I am sometimes put off by complicated backstory and character unfamiliarity, however none of this is required to enjoy this graphic novel and I was gripped from start to finish! The plot is fairly straight-forward yet thoughtful, the characters well defined and the lead character X 23 is very intriguing. For once here we have a Marvel story that doesn't rely on the reader to already have extensive knowledge. It is difficult to say too much without revealing elements of the story but basically this is an origins story of a killing machine in the form of a teenage girl.
Artwork is beautiful and at times haunting and the tone of the book is effective as it is set in a modern age.
Both this and the sequel (Target X) come highly recommended
