    Those beats, examining romantic relationships as well as team ones through adversity and combat is something Claremont and, later, Louise Simonson did so well in New Mutants and it feels familiar and welcome here. It's a comic that feels like it wants to deal with the same ideas of growing up, self-acceptance, and cooperation and it's a dynamic so rarely explored in comics in 2016. All-New X-Men feels like a throwback but doesn't read like one and it's a more than welcome addition to a fairly dark, relentlessly bleak X-Men line. Read Full Review

    While the end of the issue does veer into the realm of graphic violence, beyond that one misstep, this is the best X-title you aren't reading. Read Full Review

    Bagley's art is exactly what you'd expect with a cast like this. I was brought back to his lengthy and fantastic Ultimate Spider-Man run, and he makes handling the large cast of characters here look easy. The colors Nolan Woodard uses are bright, but he's still able to make the Blob and some violent scenes involving him look gruesome. The ending of this issue will tie back to the series before Secret Wars so fans jumping on board with this new team may not feel the last page impact, but it did enough to bring me back for at least another issue before I decide if I want to keep reading about this teenage X-Team.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 17, 2016

    This issue continues Dennis Hopeless efforts to use the Blob conflict as a means of exploring each character's state of mind. That means there's a lot of clunky, ponderous introspection and not a great deal of plot progression. Read Full Review
