    ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN, like Brian Wood's Marvel NOW! X-men series, is a perfect superhero comic. It would be almost impossible to reach the end of this issue and not demand that the next one arrives in your hands as soon as possible. With a creative team in wonderful artistic synergy, a story line filled with mysteries slowly coming apart, the tension and excitement of ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN #27 is immense. If you enjoyed X-MEN #1, do yourself a favour and catch up on this series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Jun 12, 2013

    Mahmud Asrar kicks it into high gear this issue to bring the visuals in this Natural Resources arc to fever pitch. The battle between Psylocke and Jean is beyond amazing, plus you'll be surprised when a certain someone busts out some hardcore martial arts moves. It's all very visceral and impactful in a way that you don't always get in superhero comics. Asrar really shows the wear and tear on the characters; his punches and kicks and gunshots will make you wince. By the end of the issue, you'll feel emotionally and physically exhausted, which I imagine is just as Wood and Asrar intended. Read Full Review

    Ultimate Comics X-Men isn't going to move units like some of the big name series, but it is definitely a series worth a read. Readers of this title know exactly how great Brian Wood can be on an ‘X' title, which justifies the near-unanimous positive response to the first issue of hisX-Men title. While Wood is still on board with this series, you can bet that I'll keep coming back;Ultimate X-Men has not been better in years, if ever. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Jun 14, 2013

    Ultimate Comics X-Men feels like it's finally going to start getting X-Men-y if that make sense. So much goes down in this issue it's not even funny, characters aren't who we think they are, others are who we think they are. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Jun 17, 2013

    This is the penultimate issue in "Natural Resources," and the last page is a gem of a cliffhanger as the arc barrels toward the final issue. It's hard to believe that I swore of "Ultimate Comics X-Men" once. What a difference a year (and the right writer and artist) makes! Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Jun 14, 2013

    Overall we are met with mysteries, twists, emphasis on loyalties and so on. This story has proven to show that nothing is as simple as it looks and too usually expect the worst to come. The only set back you can find is that even as the book hits it's climax, nothing too big has happened to really occurred to wow you. That will come in time, but for now the pace is decent at best.
