    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Oct 25, 2012

    While I'd be happy to see the concept of A-Babies vs X-Babies left here without the need for a toddler-themed ongoing or mini-series etc., I'd definitely welcome this team back for the odd Holiday Special or the like. This is without a doubt a truly funny and disarmingly sweet comic book, with high production values that make it an enjoyable read for big kids and actual kids alike. Brothers, sisters, heed my words: march into your local comic shop, slam your $2.99 down on the counter, and, with pride in your heart, demand a copy of A-Babies vs X-Babies as soon as humanly possible. Just, y'know, maybe make sure the store's pretty much empty when you do. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Garry Robertson Oct 26, 2012

    I really enjoyed this one off story, nicely written by Scottie Young and with a good helping of humor, while still roughly sticking to the original story. The artwork from Gurihiru is fantastic and the nice baby versions of the characters are still easily recognizable. So for a nice, enjoyable read, this gets an 8/10. Bedtime for me now, as I have pre-school in the morning. I hope whoever reads this will have enjoyed my tongue-in-cheek review in the style of the comic. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Oct 26, 2012

    Baby Hulk deserves his own series, if for no other reason than the line "Hulk like bear. Him keep bear forever". We also never realised how much we needed to see Baby Galactus suckling on the moon. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Wesley Messer May 10, 2013

    To wrap this up, A-Babies vs. X-Babies makes for a nice way to cleanse your palate after the Avengers vs. X-Men event. You all need this comic in your life, you will be a happier person by the time you get done reading. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Oct 17, 2012

    That said, this issue has all the shenanigans one would expect from a book where the plot concerns Captain America's Bucky Bear being stolen by Cyclops, inciting a silly neighborhood brawl between both teams. All of the expected characters show up for the fight, but I was taken aback by the inclusion of a few currently deceased characters such as Nightcrawler and Banshee. If anything, their inclusion cements the fact that this book completely ignores all manner of continuity in the service of fun, and in that regard, A-Babies vs. X-Babies is a resounding success.

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Oct 25, 2012

    "A-Babies Vs X-Babies" #1 is a one-shot comic that goes perfectly with the Halloween treats given to kids next week. This should be shared with as many people as possible until its corners are ratty and its small moments memorised. As an entry point to the Marvel U, I can think of little better thank this issue.

    Florida Geek Scene - GeekieGirlie Dec 1, 2012

    Young adds all of our favorite characters in this book, literally every page is crammed full of Avengers and X-men. If you cant find your favorite among the crowd just take a minute to look. Its like a very colorful "Wheres Waldo", you have to take a minute to find the familiar face. I enjoy Youngs work so much that when my local comic shop offered a poster of all his little crime fighters I snatched it up before they could put it on display. Skottie Young has talent, and I am looking forward to more in this new series. Read Full Review
