    Not only is this issue emotionally gut-wrenching, it's also very claustrophobic and unsettling thanks to to catacomb setting and the physical suffering Cyclops endures. Read Full Review

    "All-New X-Men" #7 gets a lot of credit for really trying to go in a direction different than characters beating each other up, similar to the way Blob had to point out to the X-Men that they were the ones causing the ruckus, not him. This is a comic that feels like it needs another draft; there needs to be less coincidence or confusion on the story's part for there to be stronger roadblocks. Not bad, but this had the potential to be so much better. Read Full Review

    There stands to be room for a little bit more light heartedness and story and perhaps more colour, but this will do for readers who enjoy more grit and pulp in their comics. Read Full Review

    As stated before, this book needs to do more to stand out against the other X-titles Marvel is putting on its shelves. As seen in the previous issue, this book excels when it uses its diverse roster to its advantage. By staying away from the more convoluted plot points and centering on the characters, Hopeless and Bagley can hopefully make their book one to remember again. Read Full Review
