    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 23, 2015

    EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN has easily become my favorite X-Men title. Despite not being too thrilled with the Terrigen Mist storyline and a villain I don't really like, I found myself glued to every page of the book. Humberto Ramos, Victor Olazaba, and Edgar Delgado are making this a glorious title as well. Things are looking bad for the X-Men but that's nothing new. This is a book you can just dive into and enjoy. With all the excitement, suspense, and tension, I feel like a kid again reading an X-Men comic. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Harry Roachford Dec 26, 2015

    Using Sinister as a big bad can be said to have been a somewhat questionable decision, but that's only before reading this issue. The team does such a good job showing him off and his reasons for kidnapping some of the team, that it's incredibly difficult not to find yourself drawn into this issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 23, 2015

    Extraordinary X-Men took way too long to bring its cast together, but now that it has the series is quickly reaping the rewards. It's clear there's a lot of potential to mine in this eclectic mash-up of X-Men favorites and newer takes on iconic characters. The addition of Sinister to the mix certainly doesn't hurt. The thing that would most helps this series now is a shift in art style to something that can accommodate the quieter scenes as well as the outlandish ones. Read Full Review

    Inter-Comics Podcast - Jason Venable Dec 28, 2015

    Of course, even if we get there, we all know we have to go through at least a few issues (if not more) of evil Frankenstein Inhu-X-man Cyclops fighting our current X-squad. This doesnt really excite me too much. My boy Chandler hilariously said it felt like a New 52 twist what with a hero going dark and monstrous just for shock. And I agree it could easily, and unfortunately, go that way. And I may end up hating this twist laterbut I dont hate it yet. Read Full Review

    All things considered, EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #4 is not a bad issue, but definitely one of the weaker ones in this run, suffering from weird pacing, wooden dialogue and art that doesn't showcaseRamos' best work. Despite all of that though,as a reader, I can't help but be curious about what's to come. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Dec 23, 2015

    This has been Lemires best issue of Extraordinary X-Men, unfortunately the art didnt match that. The story is finally starting to get interesting and Lemire is getting a grip on some of the characters. Humberto Ramos and Edgar Delgado need to step back and take their time. There were many panels that could have used a little more work. Despite the sub par effort from the art, this is the best issue of the series so far. Read Full Review

    Jeff Lemire I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down. Dank LCD Soundsystem references aside, this book has been disappointing. Lemire usually writes very natural and simple dialogue, but this book seems like it was written by someone different. Characters are too expository and the dialogue feels unnatural, even though Lemire is gradually improving. For a 22 page book, this could have had way more content. Even the twist seems cheap, and will likely be a cop-out that will be resolved in the first five pages of the next issue. Marvel needs to stop using Ramos. Yes, he's dependable. But so are taxes. I can't take any character moments seriously when everyone looks an anime character. Hopefully the final issue might somewhat improve a mediocre and immensely disappointing opening arc.

    This would be a lot better if it was done by another artist.

    I'm mesmerized by Ramos' art, but the script is poop.

    Lemire is letting me down big time... to the point I actually fear what he'll do with Moon Knight. It's just so weird putting out so much subpar work at Marvel, but really good stuff over at Valiant and Image, well at least compared to his Marvel work.
