    All-New X-Men #1 may be hogging most of the X-Men spotlight this week, but Wolverine and the X-Men remains as entertaining as ever. Read Full Review

    All in all, another solid issue of everyone's favourite X-Men series. You know you have read a great one shot issue when it tells a separate story, as well as giving some great character development  and also developing future story arcs. A very nice read indeed. Read Full Review

    While the art disconnect brings this book down, fans of Angel should have enough to make this issue of Wolverine and the X-Men a worthy purchase. Jason Aaron may only succeed in making one out of his two main characters interesting " sorry, Shark Girl, even taking down Mystique isn't going to cut muster without stronger characterization " his cliffhanger and his care with Warren Worthington brings this book in for a decent enough landing.

    The first half of this issue is easily a four-star book, but the seeming pointlessness of Mystique and Silver Samurai just feels like filler and a conservative seen-it-before solution to what opened as a bold new spin. The book ends on a solid cliffhanger that promises fun (and tragedy) for future issues, but the middle bit just drags so much it's hard to ignore it. Read Full Review

    And again, I can't stand Kade Kilgore, and the idea that he has some stupid team of knock-off evil mutants just makes my eyes roll. Read Full Review

    Luckily, this series is double shipping to high heaven, with another issue out next week of all things, so the loss of momentum that this issue causes will hopefully not be a problem for too long. There's nothing inherently wrong with this issue as a stand-alone, but it just feels extremely out of place and unnecessary at this point in time, so let's hope next week puts us back on track…again.

    I think this has to be one of the weakest issues in the series. To me, it really felt like a filler and it didn't even do a great job introducing us to this new character. Is she likeable or not? In the beginning she has a terrible attitude which she alters later on, but still. It's all very strange. I really didn't like the art in this issue, I felt it was sloppy and I thought the writing and portrayals of the characters were, overall, pretty poor. There is, however, a silver lining. Since this does feel like a filler issue, you might want to save your money and just pick up the next one -- aside from the introduction to this new character, and the explanation as to why Angel doesn't remember who he used to be, this issue doesn't feel like it will be essential to read.
