•  The indigenous species are none too happy with them

    Cyclops. Seriously, it's probably the best solo X-Book on the stands. Read Full Review

    I know it is only a matter of time before this mini-series comes to a close and Cyclops rejoins the ‘All-New X-Men,' but I truly feel it could go on for years in the right set of circumstances. The plot and concept are so solid and well written that I just wish we had more time to stay with it. Being stuck on this planet for awhile could have served for just such an environment to pull it off. Still, if my only complaint is that it isn't long enough or that I want more, itisn't really a complaint at all. Read Full Review

    In total, this was a great all around issue. While it did feel a little insignificant in the grand scheme of the book it was a very fun read. If you've been enjoying this father son dynamic and story, Rucka doesn't fail to provide what you want. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 27, 2014

    Cyclops #4 continues to take both character and action to give you a space adventure you won't soon forget. This is the Cyclops story that we need and one that you wouldn't have any other way than what we get right here. The Summers aren't the perfect family, but the attempt to be one that's less dysfunctional is a step in the right direction for the sake of both their futures. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 1, 2015

    This installment plays to similar themes as the previous issue, but it expands it well enough and tackles some different but connected areas for Scott. The dialogue between them is good as it feels more natural than I expected with what they have to cover, and it does get to the heart of the matter in a way that a marooned situation like this should provide the opportunity for it. The light action is decent but mostly forgettable, though the regular tastes like chicken nods are amusing, but the reality is that we've once again got a solid character and dialogue driven issue that works both characters well and really makes me appreciate this book far more than I expected I would as it deals with the father and son bonds and the young man facing a future he wants nothing to do with.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 27, 2014

    Im still not a fan of the pace, but everything else about this book makes it easy to recommend. The parts we DO get to see between Chris and Scott Summers are heartwarming and heartbreaking, and we get some truly incredible character moments about the boy Summers is versus the man he becomes. Those moments, and the great art, make this issue very worthwhile. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Aug 27, 2014

    This series has definitely been a dark horse in terms of quality. Its been a fun read every month, but also slaps a little meaning into it as well. Greg Rucka has the chops to take on any character and work wonders. Carmen Carnero is an up and coming talent that has impressed on this issue. Cyclops is absolutely one of the best books Marvel is putting out right now! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Aug 28, 2014

    This book continues to have a lot of heart, and if Corsair succeeds at being a father to Scott where Professor X may have failed, we might have the beginnings of a sea change in the X-Universe. Read Full Review

    There's not much action and a noticeable dip in the art, but the relationship between Scott and Chris remains as compelling as ever. Read Full Review

    As a new dad, this issue stood out to me in a big way. It's kind of an existential meditation with some lighthearted moments more than an issue that propels the story forward. As always, the art is gorgeous.
