    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 11, 2015

    All-New X-Men #36 is an entertaining issue in what has been a solid arc. Bendis and Asrar are a great team and these kids are growing on my more by the page. The Ultimate U is well represented in this one and the ominous last page has me wondering what is coming next. Well written characters, some solid action and great artwork equals a winner, and that's what we've got with All-New X-Men #36. Read Full Review

    It's a good wrap to the story, and gets us ready for the next big event - the Black Vortex. Recommended! Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Feb 12, 2015

    In the end, the event is really not that bad, and I have a lot of fun reading it. However, it's unknown if this event has anything to do with the upcoming Secret War or not, and I can't wait to find out the bigger picture of it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Feb 11, 2015

    Overall there’s not much of a story this issue and it’s main purpose is to swiftly wrap up the arc with the Ultimates. It’s a rather self-contained, feel good kind of story with some very gorgeous art and minor action that may lead to bigger implications down the line and as far endings go for arcs within the series it isn’t all too cheesy so. As previously mentioned, it feels very much like a comfort issue almost after seeing the different X-Universes and having the Original 5 (or 4 at the moment), plus the sweet ending. Worth a good read. Read Full Review

    The artistic duties of the All New X-men have been handed to Mahmud A. Asrar after the great Stuart Immomen left the book to pencil the All New Captain America.I have been following Asrar career closely after discovering him in the pages of the Incredible Hulk, a rare gift from what is historically a bad comic book.Asrars work is fresh, tight and full of attitude. His characters have a high level of personality; see Angel, X-23 and Marvel Girl. His pages fit within the traditional rules of graphic story telling as made famous by Will Eisner. Each page for the most part establishes us, the reader in the where of the events, as well a solid mixture of camera shots to keep us engaged. Asrar is an up and coming star at Marvel Comics and is quickly climbing my must have list of artist to follow monthly. Yes, his pencil/inks alone are enough to justify the purchase of this issue.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 11, 2015

    There's a sense that Bendis is offering the Ultimate X-Men one final moment of triumph before Secret Wars swoops in and upends their world for good. Speaking of which, a number of teases in this issue call to question just how directly this arc is setting up the events of Secret Wars. But more intriguing is a development at the very end that looks to dictate the course of this series in its final months. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Spencer Maxwell Feb 12, 2015

    On the other hand, Asrar's art suffers from a large amount ofinconsistency. It seems rather evident that his work was rushed. Almost every page suffers from a character looking awkward. He appears to have a lot of difficulty drawing faces. The character's emotions are clear but the level of detail varies from page to page. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Feb 11, 2015

    Usually Bendis is able to keep his ducks in a row and work an entertaining, well-paced story into six issues, but this is a rare faltering for him. While the book is a visual feast, it simply doesnt have the story or enough character focus to drive the narrative forward. There are some great character moments, but theyre mostly focused on five of what is a gargantuan group, the rest of who did essentially nothing but fill up backgrounds. This isnt a bad issue by any means, and it wasnt a bad story by any means, but it felt like a massive holding pattern from very early on and never managed to overcome that. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 15, 2015

    The issue is really a microcosm of the entire arc in that it includes some fun moments but never quite lives up to the promise of its premise ultimately offering a mostly forgettable adventure. For fans. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Feb 17, 2015

    Overall, i definitely found this to be something of a weak issue, but it did have its moments. Im certainly looking forward/hoping to see more of Carmen in the future. Her powerset could make for some interesting circumstances and there is some indication shell be going to train at the New Xavier School. And as I said above Im also looking forward to seeing what comes of young Henrys apparent change of focus. In the end, this issue is probably better for the potential of where it could be leading than for its actual content and its probably for the best that we now have this arc behind us.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 12, 2015

    All-New X-Men is still behind schedule, but Bendis has put together a pretty good story arc here. There was a ton of expectation for this arc and they may not have been met by some, but if you take it for the fun journey it was, youll have a good time. Mahmud Asrar continues to grow on this title and can honestly become a very good artist in the future, but he still has some work to do. All in all, this wasnt an earth shattering story, but it was an enjoyable one. Read Full Review

    I'm ready to move on from this arc to the next. With all that's been announced, I get the feeling like the X-Books are starting to enter another gear. My expectations are tempered, however, due to so many of the arcs ending on disappointing notes. The problem is not so much with the conclusion " it's how the entire story fails to live up to its promises. With issue after issue leading us down a road that constantly reminds us of the scenery, even a couple of beautiful sunsets are not enough. Fans want to see plot points dealt with, and there's a lot fluttering around in the wind, and we're about to pull up into the parking lot any minute now. Read Full Review

    A little more than predictable (yet satisfying)ending to the current arc. Unfortunately this title will be swept up in a crossover for the next few months too.

    The throwdown with Ultimate Dr. Doom ends up being very tame and forgettable. Jean is one of the most interesting characters, but it's starting to feel like the comic should reboot in the summer as 'Jean Grey And The X-Men' with how much everyone else feel like a supporting cast. The artwork is decent, it's been better but I'm not complaining. Overall, I was entertained enough while reading this, but it's not memorable.
