    So far I like the new series, but the ending of this issue felt a lot like the ending of the first one. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Dec 22, 2015

    Writer Dennis Hopeless has always taken a no-bullshit perspective on X-Men nostalgia and Scott's complicated relationship with the man he's meant to become is indicative of that view. It's a great discussion that paints a fascinating portrait of a character who was often ignored during Brian Michael Bendis' generally solid run. Less successful is Mark Bagley's art, which splits the difference between cartoony hijinks and slightly dated looking fashion. It's a problem Bagley has had in the past, notably during his time on Ultimate Spider-Man and Hulk and it's not fixed here. Read Full Review

    The artwork by Mark Bagley is great as well. His style, along with bright coloring from Nolan Woodard, really help add to the light tones in the story, but are also very well capable of capturing the serious and dramatic moods required in the jail scenes. While the characters still suffer from looking the same as one another in some of their faces, the characters and their action bits are still drawn very well. There are no issues with the layouts, scenery, backgrounds, or other parts of the book. It just looks good in general, just like in the first issue.Most Memorable Moment Read Full Review

    Despite a decrease of quality when it comes to the art, too much focus on Scott and missed opportunities when it comes to the antagonists, what was started in their debut issue still works out in #2, making it a fun read. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Dec 16, 2015

    All-New X-Men #2 is a fun book that should be a nice easy read. Dennis Hopeless has some skill with these younger characters and its showing in his writing. The art by Bagley and Woodard is light and allows this to be the book where you dont have to think about death and extinction. If youre not in the mood for dark and mysterious, this is a book for you. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 23, 2015

    As to the storyline, the Ghosts of Cyclops aren't that interesting and the increased hatred of mutants outside Austin, Texas where Iceman finds some new friends paints a bleak world view I don't have interest in returning to month after month. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
