    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 27, 2013

    Although I don't know why Aaron didn't do anything with his Toad/Husk romance. That's another romance that's really growing on me. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jan 28, 2013

    It's a fun, lighthearted issue (for the most part), but the final scenes with Storm and Wolverine (on which the cover is based) seem totally out of character. Perhaps there are some plot twists that will sort it out. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jan 26, 2013

    This is a nice stand-alone issue with some fun moments, good art and some nice development. This series is slowly getting back on track and it will return to its greatness if it continues with issues like these. Read Full Review

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: when this series is on point, it is razor sharp. This issue is a strong example of how to balance multiple plotlines, a huge cast of characters, and still tell an engaging, witty, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny story too. This issue won't win any prizes for flashy battle scenes, but for intimate character work, this issue is top of the line. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Jan 25, 2013

    If you haven't read any of this series yet issue 24 is a great place to start and it's definitely worth checking out. It renewed my interest in the series after the last several issues had been fairly boring. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Jan 23, 2013

    Admittedly it’s easy to start losing faith in the X-Men series with all the titles out and for a while it felt like Marvel was putting all their money into the Avengers (which given that there was a high demand for them from new readers post Avengers movie, it’s not a surprise), but it’s issues like this that make me feel like everything is going to be okay for the X-Men and remind me why I’m a fan to begin with.

    IGN - Poet Mase Jan 23, 2013

    I'm really glad that the focus has returned to Broo, and I'm still holding out hope for Warbird's role being expanded. However, I will admit that I am rarely less interested in this title than when generic Friends-like relationships are used to support more unique and interesting ones. There's a solid core here, though, and the book is, overall, enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 24, 2013

    The highlight of Aaron's script has to be Kitty and Iceman's awkward first date, as they discuss how they shoulder the burden of training the next generation of mutants. Smart stuff. Read Full Review

    ScienceFiction.com - Stuart Conover Jan 27, 2013

    This is a great issue for people who care about what the X-men themselves are actually going through. It's often overlooked with how busy they are saving the world and each other but the X-Men are people too and you really get a great view of their relationships in this one. It felt a little cramped in areas as there was a lot going on at the same time though not in a way that took away from catching up with the central characters personal lives of this book.

    Geeks Unleashed - Christopher Romero Jan 26, 2013

    Artist David Lpez draws a funny-looking Wolverine"a little too to-heavy for his stature"and his teenage Jean Grey is inconsistent with other X-Men titles, but this isn't too say that his work isn't good, if anything, Lpez adds a fresh look to a title approaching its 25th issue.

    Comic Addicts - Vikram Bhargava Jan 29, 2013

    The issue serves as pilot to future mini-story arcs. I'm still interested in this one. The art is okay. The characters do look cockeyed at times. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Jan 23, 2013

    There is a lot about this comic that I like and plenty that I did not like so much. I thought it was great to see the relationships between certain characters explored and explained in greater depth and detail, but at the same time there were other relationships that developed seemingly out of nowhere (Wolverine and Storm). I think that some reference to past appearances would have made this union more believable and interesting, but it just struck me as awkward. Having said that, this issue is accessible. It's not the best, but it isn't bad, either. It also deals with some interesting concepts and leaves readers curious and wanting more. The ending is a real doozy, too. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Jan 24, 2013

    "Wolverine & The X-Men" has been a strong and interesting book throughout its run and I've been impressed time and again with where it has gone and how it's been handled. This is a good quiet issue, but not a great one. It's perhaps more disappointing because it hovers just on the edge of being utterly fantastic, but can't quite get there. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jan 29, 2013

    While Wolverine and the X-Men #24 provides an entertaining story but it does not live up to the high expectations this series has built for itself. Much of this issue is filler until the next big arc. This is not a bad thing because we do get to see a lot of fun character interaction between Wolverine and Storm as well as Kitty and Bobby. Unfortunately the Jean and Quentin scene along with the lack of Rachel's group appearance brought things down. This is a fun issue but one that can be passed on. Read Full Review
