    I'm glad a jumped back on this book as the art and pace are strong and the story is compelling due to new details on X and his new big bad villain. Check it out for the violence and you'll be rewarded with some gruesomely awesome shots. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 12, 2014

    In general this was another fun issue because while there is progression, every issue of X gives you something new with a different focus. Tango being the villain and giving X a reason to let loose knowing that this army Tango has released upon the streets after staging a citywide blackout to loot the city shows no restraint to innocents that end up in their way. This book continues to show how much it offers in terms of action, having a hero who would do what none other would dare or take things to such an extreme. Read Full Review

    I'm always curious to see what the end game of these kind of characters is. What if X achieves his goal of a corruption-free Arcadia? Will he take off the mask and retire? I doubt it. Will he be the last crazy violent damaged individual standing? Possibly. But what will he be standing over? A pile of bodies and a city in ruins? That seems to be the trajectory that he's heading towards. I'll keep my eye on him to see how he moves his agenda forward and you should too. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Feb 12, 2014

    By the end of the issue we get a final showdown with X and another new villain, Gamble. It's obvious that not only does X have a history with Tango but one as well with Gamble as well. Once again an odd villain who's love of the western gunslinger is obvious but the depravity and extremes he's willing to go to are off the chart as well. X #10 was flat out entertaining and visceral. While this title might not suit everyone it's definitely worth giving it a look. X is the vigilante that everyone loves and everyone fears equally which makes him a true dark hero in a sick twisted city. The progression Xis making should warm the hearts of the blood thirsty but fan of crime, revenge and raw justice should jump on this book immediately. I like where X is headed and have bought in to Swierczynski and Nguyen's world, lock, stock and bloody barrel! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Feb 12, 2014

    So with our two stories bouncing off of each other, I find both interesting, as well as, a good balance for the point in this series. Mr. Tango seems promising, so I hope he can last through a couple more issue than our most recent villains. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 12, 2014

    "X" is, month in and month out, a brutally entertaining series. Swierczynski and Nguyen's "X" kicks its characters in the head and has them crawling back for more, as a fight against corruption with only one voice of morality left in the city begins to shift into high gear. Another strong installment from one of Dark Horse's better new series. Read Full Review
