    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 11, 2014

    And once again, Stuart Immonen is at the top of his game. His work takes on a slightly darker tone than usual with this arc, especially in the shadowy future scenes as the Brotherhood plot and scheme. The constant back-and-forth in the script helps keep the story humming along, and Immonen's shadowy scenes frequently open up into widescreen displays of psychic fury. That Immonen can keep up this level f detail and craft coming right on the heels of the "Trial of Jean Grey" crossover is very impressive. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Dodge Jun 12, 2014

    There has been many a dystopian future depicted in the X-Men comics, so Immonen wisely keeps the big war scene down one double page spread. It's enough to get a very impressive look at an action pact mutant fight, but not enough to feel like a retread of past storylines. Once the issue leaps to the present, the look becomes a bit more stylized, fitting a psychic showdown. Colorist Marte Gracia makes the art stand out by covering entire pages in light blue or a harsh red, expertly manipulating the tone. Immonen handles the big cast of characters very well, with no obvious discrepancies between panels and the action whirls around the pages. The last page is a destined to be an awesome poster, and really cranks up the excitement for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Jun 11, 2014

    All-New X-Men is a killer title that has enough to keep readers on the edge of their seats. The tricky part will be the finish, which will determine a good chunk of the story's weight in the grand scope of things. We have interesting characters who have it out for each other, but the purpose and development need to be as, or even more, important and worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott Jun 11, 2014

    ll-New X-Men #28 makes a proper enemy of Charles Xavier Jr. and his team. And while the Battle of the Atom event may have been a bit disappointing, Bendis looks like he's got this series ready to dovetail nicely with the events of Marvel's big Original Sin event. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jun 11, 2014

    All-New X-Men is like an unstoppable train powered by the creative talents of two of the best in the business. Issue #28 is another great chapter in what has been a strong arc and, if the final page is any indication, issue #29 should be explosive. The X-Men (new, old, and from the future) are in good hands with Bendis and Immonen and with each issue this series becomes more legendary. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 11, 2014

    Who would have thought Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen would bring the evil X-Men from the future back so soon? Just as the X-Men were surprised, we could almost say the same. Bendis makes the perfect argument to bring these characters back and they have a big advantage over the X-Men. This makes for some great action. Immonens art has become synonymous with these characters in this title and its always a blast to see his art. Theres no telling what Bendis will throw at the X-Men next and thats just one thing I love about this title. I cant wait to see what happens after that last page. Read Full Review

    The Kliq Nation - Timdogg Jun 10, 2014

    We find out what the deal is with future Beast, and what the Brotherhood's real beef is with the X-Men. Charlie Xavier and Raze make a pretty good team. I wouldn't mind seeing more of them in the *ahem* future. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Jun 13, 2014

    Overall All New X-Men #28 is a good issue outside of some possible continuity errors. The story is high quality and boasts some very good characterizations. A lot of plots are starting to pay off and by 28 issues in, it's a lot of fun to see happen. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Jun 11, 2014

    History has always been written by the victors and for much of All-New X-Men #28, it looks as if the X-Men aren't going to be around to finish their own chapter. From the very start All-New X-Men has been about the X-Men struggling to prevent the extinction of their race as well as fighting for a better tomorrow for all of mutantkind. Now, another group of mutants, aims to take them out of the equation in order to finally do what they couldn't; secure a place in the future for mutants around the world and uphold the name that the X-Men has drug through the mud. All-New X-Men #28 is a compelling de-construction of the core concept of the book and a much-needed shot into the arm of a series that has felt a bit tired for the last few months. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 14, 2014

    As great a writer as Bendis might be, I'm rarely all that impressed with his original characters. The Future Brotherhood is kind of boring on a lot of different levels. I especially don't like Raze. But overall, none of them are interesting, so they make for pretty lousy antagonists in general. It's a good thing the X-Men are more than capable of being awesome.

    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt Jun 12, 2014

    I'm still loving this series. It's still one of the better "X" books I've read in the modern age, and the art has been solidly astounding throughout the whole run. I have reservations, yes, but I'm still trusting Bendis on this ride he's taking me, and I'm curious to see where we're going. Say what you want about what he's done with the continuity of the X-Men, but he's definitely shaken things up, and he's managed to turn Jean Grey from a character who's often the dead horse of comics fans hopes that so many writers love to beat into a strong and complicated character who I love to read about in this setting. All in all, it's a great book that worth the money, and I'm still looking forward to what's coming next. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 16, 2014

    Faced with a serious threat in Xavier and his team, All New X-Men #28 continues the trend of showcasing Jean Grey as the pivotal figure on the team whose power continues to surprise even those who know her all too well. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Jun 13, 2014

    With lots of dialogue and very little action, All-New X-Men #28 seems primarily written to explain Xavier's motive, but little else is accomplished. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 11, 2014

    If "All-New X-Men" #28 was the benchmark that all future issues made sure to reach, I'd be delighted. It's fun, it fills in details, it gives you your money's worth and then some. This comic can move slowly at times, but this is an example of how sometimes it finds just the right pace. Nicely done. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jun 11, 2014

    This issue of All-New X-Men was pretty good, but it will lose some readers with all the time jumping. If you can get past the all of that, it should be an enjoyable read. Bendis continues to flesh out characters that need attention and he makes them interesting. The art is as good as its ever been and Gracias colors do wonders for this title. A solid issue for one of the best books on the rack. Read Full Review
