    As a capper to the series this is one hell of a goodbye. I would love to see more adventures of ForgetMeNot as he provides Deus Ex Machina solutions to the problems the mutant race faces, which is a testament to how well he works as a symbol. A home for the singular stories of the most uncanny of X-Men, Legacy is put to rest with the touching dignity it deserves. A comic that makes us feel better about going it alone, embracing our individuality despite the world not knowing our names. That's something we all can identify with and be touched by. Even though our memory will be cleansed of the presence of the X-men's unheralded protector ForgetMeNot, we will never forget the Legacy left behind. Read Full Review

    The three writers work very well in tandem. The credits page doesn't actually specify who wrote what sections, and it's pretty difficult to tell from reading the issue either. The artists aren't so successful at working as a team, as Tan Eng Huat, Steve Kurth, and Rafa Sandoval's styles could scarcely be more different. But Huat's distorted facial work aside, it all combines to form a pretty satisfying package. The final pages get a little bit sappy, granted. But this quiet tale about a forgotten X-Men emphasizes all of Legacy's strengths and is a great sendoff to a book I would have been happy to stick with for much longer than six years.

    X-Men won't find it here. The art is not what makes it. More for readers who like depth in a story. Read Full Review

    Is this a must buy issue? That is a tough one. It is a stand alone piece. It is an endcap. It is a fond farewell. I would say it is what the Legacy of the series was in a nutshell. If you have been enjoying the various stories here over the years I would say this is one to pick up. Read Full Review

    Parts of "X-Men Legacy" #300 are undeniably sentimental, clichd and predictable in plot. Other passages have a light touch, however, and the writing team is skilled enough that "ForgetMeNot" delivers on emotional impact. It's a fable with a moral, and it's difficult to pull off pathos in this kind of story, but "X-Men Legacy" #300 manages it in the moments when it illuminates the gratitude and humility of the main character. It's worth the reader's time, and the pleasing irony is that it's strong enough to be memorable. Read Full Review

    This comic book isn't awful, but it is definitely forgettable. I had hoped for a story that was more engaging for five dollars and this one feels too much like spare parts with a wrapper to bookend the thing. There is a lot to pick on in the comic (such as the mutant referring to himself as a human) but the construction and presentation of the comic is the main problem. The book had the right idea and two solid characters to execute the story but the book just didn't come close. Read Full Review
