    This is a powerful issue that shows what comic books can do with its platform. These last seven issue's does a great job getting readers invested emotionally with our heroes. Read Full Review

    Overall, EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #7 is an issue with solid art that gives us a great insight into the character of Nightcrawler and makes me confident that Lemire's future revelations will be just as satisfying. Read Full Review

    Guest artist Victor Ibanez continues to impress with his lively figure work and detailed environments, and hopefully he'll remain a fixture on the series. Unfortunately, this issue doesn't make any better use of the Weirdworld setting than the previous one did. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Tyler Hammel Feb 18, 2016

    As the X-Men head into the summer long "Apocalypse War" crossover next, maybe they'll recapture some of what made them so enjoyable back in the day. Or maybe we'll get another half-baked villain riding on the coattails of nostalgia like we did with Mister Sinister in the series' first arc. Nevertheless, it's nice to see Marvel seemingly helping to promote the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse film even though the film rights belong to 20th Century Fox. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Chris Sizemore Feb 18, 2016

    Overall, I give this series so far a 3 out of 5. Its a little better than average but could definitely be better with more time and substance. I know Jeff Lemire is a great storyteller, so Im still hopeful he will deliver a great X-Men run. Hopefully now that the team is assembled, we will get more focus on solid stories and character development. This book started out as my favorite X-Men title post Secret Wars, and has since been surpassed by Uncanny X-Men. I sincerely hope it can come back to rival Uncanny as my favorite. Read Full Review

    Geo AriaGeo, is the Guido of Greatness, the King of Comics and the Toa of Techies. Its not cool until Geo certifies it cool. He likes everything from Archie to WWE and everything in-between, as long as its funny, edgey, or over the top exciting. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 20, 2016

    Extraordinary X-Men #7 is another decent issue, but nothing that will amaze you. Jeff Lemire is leaning too much on what Cyclops did and it is hurting this series. The strong showing in the art department makes this issue more enjoyable, but the story needs a few tweaks for this series to be considered a flagship book. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Feb 22, 2016

    Looking beyond the final scene of Extraordinary X-Men #7 when considering quality is fruitless though because that scene distills everything you need to know. It's a slapdash construction of something that ought to be dramatic, but is actually baffling. Not only does it rely on reader's already having formed a connection to the material, but that these same readers be okay not knowing what came before or concern with its quality. This is a comic built with no ability to evoke a reaction beyond the jaw dropping display of its own blunt manipulations. Read Full Review

    There's an alchemy that happens when you've got the right creators on the right property telling the right story - but unfortunately, all the components seem to blow up in our faces with Extraordinary X-Men #7. Read Full Review

    Inter-Comics Podcast - Jason Venable Feb 23, 2016

    I felt like the art by Ibanez was a little stronger this issue. His layouts for the journey through Nightcrawler's mind are very interesting and very well executed. But it is weird (ahem) that we have nice weird art in the mindscape, whereas the other part of the book that actually occurs in a place called Weirdworld has art that is very ordinary. Very odd art choices in that regard. Read Full Review
