[Comic Review] National Comics: Madame X (One-Shot)

National Comics: Madame X (One Shot)I have to say that I’ve become rather fascinated by DC ComicsNational Comics line. With only a handful of hang-ups in any issue I’ve picked up (and usually it’s the fact that it’s hard for the creators to shoehorn a one-shot into 40-ish pages).

With National Comics: Madame X, that fascination is only solidified. The premise involved Madame X, and famed psychic who apparently fell from grace with one of your tarot card readings. She now works for a law firm assisting in various cases.

In this issue, the heroine gets involved with the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, who approaches the law firm for something she saw in a vision/dream.

In this format, the title works well because the creators made sure to work a form of closure in before the ending. With resolution involving the murder of the mayor and the fallacy that is the Voodoo Queen, things are wrapped up with another vision. This one involves Madame X’s death/murder.

This is perfect, because it leaves the reader wanting just a little bit more, but at the same time, not left hanging to get the full gist of the story at hand.

Rating: 7/10 Gingered Digits.

Reasoning: Good character development, good plot, good artwork, ok story, great one-shot format.
