• You know your friends from growing up? The ones you went to high school with, and are to-this-day some of the people who know you best?
•  Well, imagine there are only five kids in your high school, and you're all hated and feared by the world around you.
•  Sometimes, it's nice to take a step back and realize that what you've been told is your "team" is really something much better-your best friends.

    This is a fascinating character study of Emma and Jean that requires no onboarding to enjoy. Read Full Review

    All-New X-Men #37 is a full package which gives us the character development from two characters who have fallen to the background as of late. They have ways to go as individuals still, though after this issue you want to see more of them tackling this as a group seeing as they are both strong heroes who overcome their obstacles.

    Brian Bendis uses this issue to explore one of the more oft-ignored character dynamics in his X-men run - Emma Frost and young Jean Grey. And even if this chapter does little to advance the larger plot, it's worth a read for that element alone. Read Full Review

    For a stand alone issue, this was pretty good. Brian Michael Bendis didnt phone anything in and actually gave us a book that has some substance. The colors and pencils by Mike Del Mundo work well with the story and are a welcome addition. This issue was a little late, but had enough good character moments and art to let it slide.

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Mar 16, 2015

    As meaningful as Emma's lesson for Jean is, it still feels incomplete. It still feels like there are many more lessons for Emma to teach Jean. The fact neither of them brought up Cyclops seems like an oversight. However, it didn't make the impact of the story less meaningful. Jean Grey and Emma Frost may never be bffs, but they can still learn from each other so long as those lessons don't involve marital counseling. Read Full Review

    I probably won't be reviewing All-New X-Men for a while. I'm not a fan of the Black Vortex event at all, and won't be picking up the series during that time. Sadly, the last one I will be reviewing here is not one that lives up to the standard, and hopefully the series will pick up when the crossover event ends. Read Full Review

    Bendis offers an insightful study of contrasting personalities and temperaments. Jean and Emma’s relationship dynamic has always been an interesting one. And this adds new layers to that dynamic.

    Okay, but not great. Art is wonderful but more development on somebody other than Jean Grey would've been nice,especially with the solicit.

    Not bad. It's a self-contained, character building issue and it works well on that level. The art is alright aside from some facial expressions that feel too exaggerated.
