X23: Target X is the following story after X-23: Innocence Lost. It picks up right were the story left. Laura aka X23, now 15 year old, is being interrogated by two men (not telling who they are, they will reveal them self quickly). She will explain what happen to her since she killed her mother and other bits and pieces still unknown that happen when she was in the institute. The story will eventually lead Laura to go live with her cousin, Megan, that she saved in Innocence Lost. Although Laura starts to have her first real teenage life, terrible events will force Laura to protect her new family.

Artistically, the book is amazing, the colors are great, not too much text in each cells. The book contains the full six parts of the X23 Target X series.
Two people well known on the television will appear in this books has Laura's new teachers; that just made my day seeing them in this comic book.

This comic book is one to absolutely have in your collection if you are a fan of the Marvel collection (not just the X-Men). Although, I really recommend that you read X-23: Innocence Lost before reading Target X since it's directly following the first book.

Happy Reading!

HASH(0x9d273534) out of 5 stars Phenomenal Nov. 22 2008
By Savant11 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is truly a phenomenal story and probably one of the best and most sophisticated North American comic books. I have ever read in my 20 years of reading and collecting comic books.

X-23 Target is the follow up story to X-23:Innocence Lost.. X-23 whose real name Laura Kinney, is a clone of the X-Men's Wolverine. You can almost say that she's his `sister' (though daughter would be more appropriate). She was bred by a mysterious corporation in order to be an almost indestructible fighting machine and killer. She's sold out to the highest bidder to do assassination jobs.

Laura is essentially kept like an animal or a machine whose only purpose is to do as she is told. She is given no love and affection at all, except from her `mother', Sarah Kinney, the woman and scientist whom she was artificially inseminated with and gave birth to her. In X-23: Innocence Lost, we see that Sarah Kinney (who has her own horrific demons to contend with) has to very careful in the way she treats and deals with her daughter.

The topics of child abuse, abandonment and loneliness has been touched upon and covered in many comic books. It's pretty standard stuff., 90% of superheroes are the product of a dysfunctional childhood. However none of the books I have read have shown the feelings plight and suffering of any of these children in such a profound way.

Kyle and Yost convey Laura's situation without being heavy handed or trite. It breaks your heart to read about her plight, but at the same time you can't help but admire Laura for her bravery.

One of the reasons I like Laura so much is the fact that apart from the fact she's so efficient is her stoicism. She isn't hard or angry. But neither is she pitiful. Not once do we see her cry from her abuse or beg for mercy. She suffers it all with admirable yet heartbreaking bravery.

In addition like many of the best and top notch Marvel heroines. Laura can handle her emotions and she is a strategic thinker. She's not undisciplined or stupid.

If there is one character I could compare her to it, is Elektra. Another Marvel character who is also an assassin. However Laura is more chilling since she is only a 15 year old girl.

The artwork in this book is great, Choi and Oback did a great job. Especially in conveying Laura's state of emotions, which can be seen by the deadness in her green eyes.

I have a read many good stories in my 20 years of collecting comic books. But I really don't think that I have read one that has touched me this way. And that is very rare.

I highly recommend this book and it's predecessor X-23: Innocence Lost.

HASH(0x9d0bed38) out of 5 stars X-23 Fans Jan. 19 2013
By Brynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is my second X-23 comic book, and my second comic book period. I've always watched superhero movies, but I decided I needed to buy a comic book. It took me quite some time to pick out the right comic book, I wanted beautiful art, a strong female lead, and I knew it had to be X-Men oriented. I grew up with the X-Men cartoon and I just barely remembered X-23 making an appearance.
My first X-23 comic features the Fantastic Four, but more importantly Spiderman, Gambit, Wolverine, and Jubilee! This one features Captain America, Wolverine, and Daredevil! Thus, I now have two X-23 comic books with a few special appearances. The art is beautiful, the storyline interesting, and the characters real. I just love X-23's personality and I know I will be buying more X-23 comics! And I can hopefully start collecting a few others.

HASH(0x9d205ed0) out of 5 stars X23 : TARGET X March 5 2011
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love this series. This collects the 6 issue limited series written by CRAIG KYLE & CHRIS YOST and with art by MIKE CHOI & SONIA OBACK. This is the 2nd X23 limited series. If you enjoyed the 1st run you will definitely love the second run. It continues and picks up where the first one left off and leads into her first contact with Captain America, DareDevil, & Wolverine. Alot is done with her the way I always invisioned things being done with Wolverine. I managed to get a SOFT COVER copy of the trade since the prices for the Hard Cover are just rediculously out of hand. I got mine for under 13 bucks with S&H.
HASH(0x9d2de2b8) out of 5 stars Great piece of X-23's origin story May 20 2014
By Ben Martin - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this because it was by the same creative team that made me love X-23 in the pages of X-Force, and I was not disappointed. This is a great place to get to know X-23 as a character and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed reading the X-Force books she was in. She's been written differently by different writers over the past few years, but here we see the mostly silent, brooding character that was an integral part of Wolverine's first black-ops squad.
