    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jun 21, 2017

    It seems like every issue the bar gets set higher and higher. If you are an x-fan and you haven't jumped onto the Gold train yet you are really missing out. This is one of the best X-books we have had in years. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Tyler Wing Jun 24, 2017

    If you are a Rachel Grey fan, this is long overdue compensation. No she's not Phoenix, but Guggenheim demonstrates that she really doesn't need to be. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a strong issue despite some challenging scripting. Guggenheim has shown promise recently, but Silva's the star of this show. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - David Lee Martins Jun 23, 2017

    It's a solid end to the second arc for this series. However, I felt it was only slightly above average and came across as somewhat rushed. Read Full Review

    As nice as it is to see the X-Men get back to some old school superhero-ing, the resolution of the Nano-Sentinel storyline is very flat and disappointing. Read Full Review

    X-Men: Gold is trying so hard, y'all. And it finally feels like it's starting to turn the corner. Read Full Review

    Still doesn't feel like there's enough happening in the character work. But it ties off the arc pretty well. The art felt a bit rushed - maybe because of Syaf's hurried exit. Some of the face detail was weirdly missing.

    Rachel getting more powerful was cool, but should've looked cool, and it didn't.

    GOOD IDEAS: I definitely see plenty of good ideas. 1. A.I./Sentinel hybrid that attacks everyone because everyone's body contains genetic mutations. CHECK. Rachel needing to grow. CHECK. Bringing in more of the great characters available to liven up the book like Pixie and Gambit. CHECK. Interpersonal/emotional attachment and development. CHECK. The problem is that even though these ideas are all great, the execution is off. I see you trying, I do. And I appreciate it. But reading the X-Men these days, to be honest, most Marvel Comics, is like seeing a beautiful picture trying to come into focus and going TOO FAR and turning into a caricature/fun house mirror of what a good comic book is supposed to be. What this book is lacking is FOCUS. What are each character's powers and how do they solve their challenges using their powers intelligently and creatively, and preferably as a team? MISS. Characters having genuine and MOTIVATED emotions and emotional challenges that we share with them? MISS. (Storm gratuitously kissing Gambit? GROSS) Sure fire signs you're missing the target is when you can take any character in the entire comic book and replace them with any other character in the entire comic book and virtually none of the action or dialogue will be any different is a sure fire MISS. Anytime the height of emotional involvement is one character melodramatically shouting another characters name is a sure fire MISS. Anytime the solution to a problem is doing the same tired thing over and over and over again, only this time, just a little tiny bit HARDER is a MISS. I'm sorry Mr. Guggenheim. I see you trying. I do. And I appreciate the effort. Maybe you'll one day grow into a writer that doesn't make me cringe every time I pick up the X-Men and count the pages impatiently, wishing it was already done.

    Very enjoyable issue, not sure I'm sold on Silva's art though.

    Great story arc, nice art. I love the new approach with Kitty on the top.

    Big battle issue, with random other Marvel heroes appearing in fight scenes. Rachel confronting her dead parents in her head. I wasn't as interested in her internal struggle as the author would like. She's not really a strong enough character to carry the issue. Other than a fleeting moment with Storm and Gambit, there's not much here.

    X-Men: Blue and Gold seem to be on similar paths. Both have had a new form of Sentinel introduced to them. Both have had a group of former friends brainwashed into being villains. It makes it impossible to not compare the two teams. Which is to bad because when compared the gold team seems to fall short. No member is getting strong developments, except maybe Kitty if you compare her to her time as an X-Men, but she was a strong co-leader of the Guardians. The villains are just a means to progress the story with nothing of interest about them. The one thing I think gold does excel at is action. So with nothing to separate gold from blue the title just feels like weak. The writing is strong it just needs some ideas that take the team in a new direction. The various artist have done a decent job making the title look good. The tools are there, let's hope that the title gets some inspiration to give us something different.
