    The "Apocalypse Wars" storyline in "Extraordinary X-Men" has been all over the map; some chapters are exciting and gripping, while others feel like they barely move. "Extraordinary X-Men" #11 is definitely one of the stronger issues. It moves swiftly towards its conclusion, even as Lemire and Ramos take time setting up their next storyline. Here's hoping the title is back on track for the future; right now, it's full steam ahead. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Jul 4, 2016

    While the Apocalypse Wars story line has overstayed its welcome, Extraordinary X-Men still manages to deliver a fun and compelling offering.  The action may be a bit boilerplate, but the characterization is solid.  Humberto Ramos' exaggerated art is a welcome treat (especially when it comes to all matters symbiotic)!

    In many ways, this is yet another setup issue, putting all of the chess pieces in their place before the finale - but it's more or less satisfying in doing that. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hctor A Jul 3, 2016

    As it has become usual in the last few months for the X-Men titles, this issue has some good ideas but sub-par execution. Lemire and Bunn might be some of the best writers working for Marvel right now but neither of their X-books have had great art and they are about to spend the better part of a year tied up in events, which is ultimately what is limiting these books from achieving their potential.

    Comicsverse - Marius Thienenkamp Jul 11, 2016

    EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #11 is probably the epitome of why I feel so indifferent about X-MEN comics lately. While it is by no means a bad comic book, for an X-title, it leaves a lot to be desired. Themes should be consistently explored and thought-provoking. Character work should be believable and relatable, not clumsy and repetitive. And while this issue has a few redeeming moments, overall the APOCALYPSE WARS arc fails to mesmerize me as a passionate fan of the franchise. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 2, 2016

    Extraordinary X-Men has been a book that has struggled with its identity and that continues here. Its hard not to feel like this isnt a series or storyline that weve read before. Jeff Lemire is a talented writer, but this hasnt been a good platform for his talents. The art is hit or miss and is more likely more miss. If youre a casual reader, this may be an okay series for you, but if youre a die-hard X-fan, its far fromanything special. Read Full Review

    I'm glad readers are finally warming to Lemire/Ramos X-Men. Wish critics would feel the same. It's annoying seeing a critic score of 6.9 on an immensely entertaining issue.

    Everyone had a page or two dedicated to them and it was awesomely intense. I like how they are not treating Kurt as a flower anymore. I can't wait to see how they get out of this. Lemire does a great job making you want more. And the art team of Ramos, Olazaba and Delgado work together wonderfully. Everythign is popping with color and action.

    I have been enjoying this arc - a little predictable, and Ramos' art is a little busy, but the x-men books are functioning better now than they have for a long time as they are action packed, well drawn books.
