    In other words, this feels a lot like a classic X-Men comic - and that's a very good thing! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Feb 15, 2016

    This is a solid read and a story that I want to see continue. Like I said before, this is the strongest offering that has come out of the recent relaunch, and it treats the characters with respect and depth. It's hard to pass this title up when you can see how much care has been placed into it. A strong recommend for X-Fans. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Feb 11, 2016

    If you can get on board with Laura's attitude, you'll find an interesting and fair portrayal of a possibly-doomed relationship. This is the kind of melodrama that, when done well (and it's done very well here), is the cornerstone of any good X-Men run. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Marius Thienenkamp Feb 18, 2016

    All things considered, ALL-NEW X-MEN #4 is a beautiful-looking and fun book about the international road trip of young mutants, but when it comes to the characterization of some of its protagonists, it leaves a lot to be desired and spotlights the wrong characters. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 12, 2016

    All-New X-Men has some characterization problems, but it is still a very fun read and should keep you entertained. Dennis Hopeless has built an interesting premise as the young X-Men hop from place to place, stopping crime before it happens. The art is one of the strongest things about this particular book, and it continues to improve each issue. If youre not enjoying All-New X-Men, there's something wrong. Read Full Review

    First Comics News - Giovanni Aria Feb 22, 2016

    In this issue they re-establish who Wolverine is and what she means to the X-Men. This is done while examining her relationship with Angel. However Angel is a whiner who appears to be very insecure. It doesn't ring true for an X-Man. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Feb 23, 2016

    All-New X-Men is a hastily assembled comic book on every level. Characters are sketches of teenagers and a single issue only manages to focus on a single, shrug worthy conflict between two of its characters, while the rest are banished to the background in one note appearances (e.g. Bobby is gay! Hank is smart!). The artwork passes the test of sufficiency, but provides no literal or metaphorical depth for readers to invest themselves in. It's certainly a comic, but there's not much more worth saying than that. Read Full Review

    I am really unsure how I feel about this series. The premise behind characters that live in shadows seems like a great place to start, but it seems like Hopeless is unsure where he wants to go with it. In this issue we see the new Wolverine feels she needs to be the one taking the violence to live up to the indestructible reputation of her predecessor. The focus sits manly on Warren's discomfort seeing his girlfriend do so. An interesting enough idea but played out in a somewhat linear way. It would be nice to see the stories build in a way instead of getting condensed to a few issues like a TV sitcom.

    I feel Dennis Hopeless is trolling us with his characterization of Laura Kinney, which btw is terrible.

    This portrayal of Laura is so different from that in All New Wolverine. If they are building a multiple personality plot for later down the road, then they're doing a good job. Of the two, I definitely like this one less. If these X-Men will ever be a team it's going to take something huge to pull them together. I liked the initial look into Scott, but it seems like we are now going to get these ill fitting segments into each of their psyches. If this is the case, I'd much prefer intimate stories that focus on the characters without all the chaos in the background that thins what is actually delivered in each issue.
