    A great story. A moving story. A fantastic setup. This is why Spurrier is becoming one of my favorite comic authors out there right now. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood Aug 23, 2013

    I can see how tempting it would be for the ultra-progressive and self-aware fan base that is the X-men community to react negatively to this issue's twist, but just because you recognize a trope doesn't mean you're reading one. You would have to glimpse over Spurrier and Huat's story quite briefly to not see how conscious and intelligent the pair are. “An endless BEAT.” as David says in the issue; by definition, genre will follow certain devices and tropes, and superheroes are no exception. A lot of what makes LEGACY so refreshing is the bizarre paradox it has between being a ‘smart' Marvel comic with an indie vibe, but also a title that's almost more classically Marvel than anything else on the stands today. X-MEN LEGACY continues to be the best thing to come out of Marvel in years. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Aug 26, 2013

    This series has had some craziness since it launched. It's pushed the boundaries when it comes to madness, and has come up with some awesome storylines along the way. This is the first issue that's amped up the emotional impact to the point where I was shaking my head in sadness as the issue ended. David just can't catch a break, and the fact that we're so emotionally invested in this poor, broken man is testament to the journey that Simon Spurrier and his artists and co-creators have taken him on. Excellent stuff, and one of my favourite issues of this already consistently excellent series. Read Full Review

    Regardless, after a somewhat disappointing showing last month, Legacy #15 proves why this series can compete with the best of the X-books. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Aug 21, 2013

    So X-Men Legacy #15 is interesting and solid, but my head's still spinning about all the tension build-up swerving into a few nice moments and a sudden bang to end it all. It's left us a bit unhinged. Just like David. And if there's anybody I wouldn't mind seeing him going after, it's the smug thing that was once Cyclops. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 25, 2013

    Showing a good contrast between the bizarre mutant world and the normal one via the relationship between David and his mother, this issue hits a lot of right notes as it provide emotions, show some great character work and provide some good concepts that allow for the title to breathe some more. This is a gem of an issue plot wise, color wise and art wise to a certain extent. Definitely recommended. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Danielle Luaulu Aug 31, 2013

    This title has consistently been one of the better X-Men titles out there, though it gets surprisingly little coverage. David Haller is quickly becoming one of the most complex and fascinating characters in the X-Men mythos, no longer just the stuff of nightmares with an irritatingly strong well of power to draw from. Spurrier has created a well-crafted story that delves into self-discovery without being preachy and still able to pay homage to the universe it comes from. This remains a good title to pick up and has earned three and a half stars out of five. Read Full Review
