    Soule's script is solid, but the real star is ACO's creative layouts and psychic battlescapes. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Alex Bisignaro Apr 6, 2018

    ASTONISHING X-MEN #10 is an intriguing issue. The artwork from ACO and Rachelle Rosenberg is some of the most psychedelic artwork to hit comic books. Charles Soule juggles his plethora of characters with style. Read Full Review

    Soule's dialogue between team members gets better with each issue, though this issue is a bit light on substance. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Apr 9, 2018

    The early issues were strong, and the series wavered some in the middle, but with only two issues remaining, this volume just may live up to its predecessors in the Astonishing line. [not counting the Age of Apocalypse volume]. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Andrew Taylor Apr 9, 2018

    Nothing really happens here of relevance beyond a nice reference to Giant-Size X-Men and Krakoa while building to an inevitable confrontation between X and Proteus. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Apr 5, 2018

    If this book was being judged solely on the art, it would be getting an A, but Soule's scripting is so bad, it drives it down a few notches. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Apr 8, 2018

    This issue added to my growing sense of unease about the direction of this title. The chemistry of the team doesn't seem to be drawn out, X is unlikable and not an appealing draw, and the rest of the team are cast into his shadow given his central role. I'll stick with this title but, with a massive amount of new and exciting books coming on stream in the coming weeks and months from the big two, its place on the pull list may be in jeopardy.
