    Outer Realm Comics - Ellis J. Wells Mar 9, 2012

    As I have said the last three reviews, this is just a very fun, very enjoyable comic. It's not ground-breaking or really much of a character defining issue for anyone (maybe it will lead to a big change for Jubilee, I'm not sure); but not every comic needs to be "and things will never be the same." I'm very excited to find out who the mysterious "Kabuki-looking loser" turns out to be. I never read Curse of the Mutants, so I'm "hoping" it's not a surprise reveal linked to that. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Mar 7, 2012

    X-Men continues to be the weakest X-title in Marvel's library; the best we can do is hope for some life to get injected into it soon. And there's no life in vampire blood, that's for sure. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 8, 2012

    I am absolutely stunned that this book is already up to issue #26, as it seems like half an hour ago that we saw the solicits that said "First New X-Men #1 in twenty years!" Having enjoyed Uncanny X-Force and Wolverine and The X-Men recently, I admit that there are some strong X-titles out there, but this issue left me ambivalent. For my money, too much panel time was given to Raizo and his team being "jawsome" while the members of the titular team stood about and did very little. The team of Colossus and Warpath seems like an intriguing one, but their screen time was pretty much all sizzle and no steak, and while there is cool dialogue (for Deadpool in particular), it isn't universal, leading an exchange between Jubilee and Storm to have no teeth, you should excuse the expression. X-Men #26 has no clear mission statement for the team, a huge cast without a scorecard, and feels like the epitome of "middle-chapter", earning a lukewarm 2 out of 5 stars overall. Read Full Review
