    All-New X-Men is a freight train that refuses to slow down, with #29 throwing the gauntlet down to the other X-titles and saying “c'mon, try to outdo me”. Bendis and Immonen are one of the top pairings in comics and it shows with this comic. Grab it, love it. Bring on #30. Read Full Review

    The ‘All-New X-Men' has long been a series I felt would fall into a gimmick yet continues to astound me with amazing writing paired with spectacular art. While I was almost a little annoyed how easily the Future Brotherhood are getting out of this, it wasn't enough for me to not absolutely love this issue and look forward to where the series will go from here.

    I hope (and trust) that this will wrap up this story for a while - it's definitely time to move on to something fresh - but kudos to the creative team for sticking the landing and throwing in a number of surprises along the way. Read Full Review

    This is definitely a buy, but since this title is in the top 20 every month, you probably already are. However,it's not showing up in the top 5, so more people need to check this title out. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 9, 2014

    Overall, All-New X-Men #29 was the end of a fight that brought about some good changes in characters who needed that push. This book should always be about the development of the Original X-Men and the other younger mutants they interact with. That is what we got here and who knows where Bendis takes things from here be it connecting to The Last Will And Testament of Charles Xavier, but hopefully the focus doesn't change from what is most important to the readers.

    I'm looking forward to the next issue now that it looks like there will be an emphasis on the most underused X-Men of all: Angel. The angle is interesting enough " as the young X-Man steals Cyclops bike, we see how the circle closes in on itself. And then we realize, this All-New X-Men is history repeating itself, and that's a great thing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 9, 2014

    Issue #29 also serves as Stuart Immonen's swan song on the book, unfortunately. His vibrant, dynamic art will be sorely missed. This issue does show a few rough edges in terms of loose facial details and such, but that's to be expected considering how many pages Immonen has tackled in recent months. He still brings an awesome sense of scale and drama to every page, and the interplay between the real world and the psychic plane helps distinguish this issue even further. Read Full Review

    Though the Fantastic Four has taken the moniker of “Marvel’s First Family,” the X-Men is and will always been synonymous with family when I think of Marvel. After many shaky first encounters and initial friction between members it seems that the New Xavier’s School has finally become the family that we all knew they could be. All-New X-Men #29 finally presents us as an audience a firm ground for the characters to grow from leading into future issues. The All-New X-Men have been proven in battle, time and time again, but now they have proven themselves to be something much more powerful than a super-team going forward - they are finally a singular family unit.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 9, 2014

    This issue wraps up an entertaining brotherhood arc. Brian Michael Bendis has injected some life into the X-Men books and has kept the quality of this title very high. Immonen has had better issues, but its hard to say he ever has a bad issue. This duo has proven to be great at everything they try and that doesnt look to change any time soon. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt Jul 10, 2014

    All-New X-Men is a fun mix of new stories with old characters, and proves X-books are still good. Jump on board before the next issue drops. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Jul 10, 2014

    The ending has the young Xavier sending a letter to his future self, warning him about things to come and how to avoid them. It seems like it's possible for young Xavier to make yet another appearance in the present day, but how that is going to play out is everyone's guess. A brand new arc begins next issue, and I can't wait to find out what's in store next. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 12, 2014

    This was a fine ending, but more action heavy than I normally care for, especially in a Bendis comic. It's basically just one big fight scene as the good guys overcome the bad guys and we all go home. There's a little moral dilemma, over whether or not they should kill Baby Xavier and Raze, but it's very temporary. No feathers are all that ruffled. Basically the issue is Jean Grey thinking hard enough to triumph over Baby Xavier. And that's that. I still don't particularly care about these villains, but it's nice to know that Future Molly Hayes was being controlled like a puppet. I knew she wouldn't turn evil! Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 16, 2014

    All-New X-Men #29 is another strong issue although by their nature the Brotherhood's failed attacks are beginning to grow stale. Hopefully next month's issue moves towards an end to this storyline and begins to look forward to something new for the team to sink its teeth into. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All-New X-Men is losing some of its luster. Someone should call Doc Brown and get these kids home. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Jul 14, 2014

    Overall, though "All-New X-Men" #29 has a few nice moments, it's uneven and not as strong as previous issues. The storyline feels like it's dragging out. Although it has an ending, when a comic dips its toes into time travel, there needs to be something more definitive than what's contained in this issue. Read Full Review

    I liked it. Wraps up a lot of stuff from Battle of the Atom. Angel's on a bike to take X-23 on a date, she doesn't want to be carried.

    A great end to this arc, lots of action. It gets very chaotic, but it's all part of the fun. Immonen's art is just superb.

    Why the hell is Angel riding a bike? ... he has wings ... he can fly. All New X-Men, written by Brian Michael Bendis, has been my favorite X-men book for awhile now, and there are a lot of them. Mainly because I love the concept of this book, even though when I say this it will sound dumb, you ready? Beast has brought the original five X-men from the past to the present to rub Cyclops' face in how far he has fallen since he killed Charles Xavier (Spoilers! that happened like 2 years ago). Now the X-men from the future have come to the present to yell at the X-men of the past to go back and stop this madness...because this is not Sparta evidently. But wait up a second, it was a trap and the X-men from the future are really the evil brotherhood of mutants from the future and it's time to throw down! I love the original X-men being in the present. It has been really fun to see how they react to their future selves and for some, how they died. X-23 has joined the original X-men and for those of you out there who are not familiar with her character, she is Wolverine's daughter. I know, that sounds dumb too, but really good writers have been showing this character love, and she fits right in with this young team. The art on this series has been great and really shines on this issue with all of the over-the- top fight scenes. My only complaint is there is just too much red used in the coloring. I know the power is off and the alarm is sounding so you understand why it's used, it adds to the drama and danger, but I just think it's a little too much. Overall, this has been one of the best X-men books in the past few years, and one of the best books to come out of the first Marvel Now re-launch. This is the end of the current story arc, so the next issue may be the best jumping-on point, and I like the last page which sets up the next story a little bit. Oooo, that's why Angel is riding the bike .... touché, comic touché.

    Just one thing about Geek Retaliation's review - X-23 is Wolverine's clone, not daughter. Probably sounds more dumb then her being his daughter, but it is a good story just the same and I like the character. Personally I didn't care for this issue but hey, to each their own.
