    Wolverine & The X-Men #6 is awesome at being really bad. It's a messy, and shallow ending, further convoluted by some vomit-inspired art. This book is a Skip. So much Skip. Don't bother. In fact, if possible, try to go back in time and unread the last 5 issues. Read Full Review

    You've probably heard the phrase 'too many cooks in the kitchen.' That definitely applies to this issue, which features no less than five artists across 20 pages. Read Full Review

    The end of the story arc wasnt the strongest in any category, but it was a decent read. Latour's first arc was pretty good, but not great, which leaves him some room to get his voice on the book perfect. The art was a major flaw this issue as it lacked consistency and at times felt rushed, but all the artists are talented and just need a little more time to nail down the characters. Overall this was a bit of a let down to an otherwise good opening story. Read Full Review

    Now that it has concluded, I have to say that I'm glad to see it go. Quinten as The Phoenix and Evan becoming Apocalypse in the future, duking it out, mass chaos for mutants. It all sounded good in theory but in practice, it felt like another convoluted time traveling mess. The Phoenix corporation is still around in the present with how they ended it? I'm not a fan. This is not only my least favorite issue on the run so far, but I believe it is my least favorite X-title in the past 3 years. I can only hope it goes somewhere more interesting from this point on. Of course, with the book losing Wolverine soon I'm not sure if the students will be able to carry my interest without Quire if it continues in the trend of this first story arc. Read Full Review

    As a full issue, it was what I was saying about the whole series, inconsistent. I mean if you can't get me to say your book is amazing even with a great Doop appearance then something's wrong. I'm sure it'll find it's footing along the way but I think that as far as X-books go it right in the middle of the pack. Read Full Review

    This issue is a mess. All the good will that Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar had built over the last few issues is squandered as we come to an entirely disappointing conclusion. Read Full Review

    This issue is so bad I worry about what is going on in editorial. I wonder if X-Men editor Mike Marts is doing ok in his life that he would sign off on this. The story is a mashup interpretation of several stories we've already read within the last year and the art is disgusting. I love these characters and I want to spend time with them and watch them evolve, but not like this…never like this. Until this ship gets righted with even a fraction of the creativity, talent, and entertainment Jason Aaron and Nick Bradshaw infused within the pages, I'm done here and that breaks my heart.

    A disgusting mess of a conclusion. If Quentin Quire is truly leaving the book, so will I. The art in this issue was so erratic and rushed. The story arc was confusing and filled with glaring holes. Hopefully Latour and Asrar can redeem themselves.

    Unfortunately, this issue is a mess. The artistic changes and overall rush job on the visual side ruin even further a story that doesn't provide a satisfying conclusion to the confusing plot that has been developed for the past 5 issues.
