    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jul 24, 2015

    The final domino for Brian Bendis epic X-Men finale has been laid out with Uncanny X-Men #35. By highlighting the young group of X-Men he has developed over the course of his run Bendis was able to place them in an interesting position leading into his grand finale. The one-shot nature of Uncanny X-Men #35 also provided this set of characters a good chance to have a full arc on their own. Seeing how these young X-Men dealt with success and adversity also gave a greater importance for a place like the Jean Grey School to exist in the Marvel Universe. Hopefully now that everything is place Bendis is able to deliver a strong end to his great X-Men run. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Jul 22, 2015

    Uncanny X-Men #35 might not be the blockbuster people will expect going into a huge finale, but it is an effective and emotional entry into the Uncanny X-Men canon. This team, though eager and skilled, still has no idea just what it means to be a mutant in the Marvel Universe. Yet, they are reminded exactly what that means thanks to a single thrown bottle from a scared woman. Brian Micheal Bendis and Valerio Schiti aim right for the throat with this issue and hit their mark in bold fashion that never feels like a "Very Special Issue." Uncanny X-Men #35 puts the audience in the perfect thematic space going into the finale. One can only hope that they stick the landing. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Jul 23, 2015

    Uncanny X-Men #35 is a good read and one that benefits from a writer who really cares about its characters. Bendis and his team take us on an emotional roller coaster in just 19 short pages. And it's rare for a new character to gain such appreciation and be given such depth in just a single issue. Goldballs is the star for sure, but all seven members have a lot to offer. This is a team of mutants that much can be done with, and Uncanny X-Men #35 will have fans genuinely excited about their development. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 23, 2015

    It came to no shock that even at the end of it all there would be another new artist taking over. Valerio Schiti being that artist on the other hand is far from a bad thing. For those familiar with his works this is one of the more appealing issues from the series which is also disappointing being the last before Uncanny X-Men #600. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Shane Tydeman Aug 10, 2015

    The appearance of the new X-Men roster is unique for a mainstream American comic, also their names aren't too appealing. Some of their costumes look somewhat like they came straight from an anime or manga. On the flip-side Golden Balls is awesome! He's a fun character, I admire the fact he's not the typical hero looking with the body builder's physique! Thanks to Schiti's art I'd love to see more of him. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Jul 23, 2015

    Overall, this issue shows a few of the problematic quirks of Bendis's storytelling, but ultimately does enough right to make the coming end that much more bittersweet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 23, 2015

    "Uncanny X-Me" #35 is fun and fast-paced. With some witty dialogue and a strong emotional core for the characters, it's a good lead-in to this fall's conclusion in "Uncanny X-Men" #600. It's a shame that's not until October, because we're going to lose some momentum with that large of a delay. Still, Bendis seems determined to go out with a bang. So far, so good. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 25, 2015

    For reasons that have not yet been revealed, Bendis' X-Men finale, Uncanny X-Men #600, has been delayed until October. And since Bendis is waiting to wrap up all of his storylines in that historic issue, all the comics leading up to October have essentially been running out the clock, to varying degrees of success. That's how we get an issue like this one, which is essentially just a silly little wrap-up for all the new X-students that Bendis created. Part of me is thrilled, because this is the Goldballs spotlight issue I've been waiting for. But another part of me can see how much of a throwaway this issue really is. Read Full Review

    Perhaps next issue (and the big number jump) will clear it up - or perhaps we'll see more of the biggest enemy this title has faced for some time now: the status quo. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 22, 2015

    Uncanny X-Men has been slowly chugging along with several delays along the way. This seems like a book that just isnt going to end any time soon. Blame shouldnt be placed on Bendis because hes had to change-up a few things due to editorial. His writing this issue was fairly good and it was nice to see some of the younger members use their powers and take the spotlight. The art was the strongest its been in a while and the colors by Richard Isanov are flat-out great. Hope you got your X-Men fill though, because there is no telling when the next issue will be out.
