    Soule continues to give X-Men fans a serious bang for their buck. Astonishing provides plenty of drama coupled with action packed sequences that hearken back to eras that many fans crave but havent seen in years. Scratch that. Decades. Read Full Review

    Much like last month, issue #4 has a superstar artist lined up this month in Carlos Pacheco. I've always been a fan of his and this month's issue, though not exactly a standout, was another good outing for the Spanish artist. Logan's skirmishes with Psylocke, Bishop and the MRD are strong action sequences, and the more tender scenes between the four characters on the astral plane do a decent job of accentuating their more traditionally desirable traits.

    Overall Soule and company may not be completely where they need to be in the sense that they still have some growing to do but, that just means that the best is yet to come for this extremely exciting chapter in Astonishing X-Men history. The writing, as with the vast majority of Soule's work, is engrossing, entertaining and pretty darn exciting, while the ever-changing visual style afforded by the top-tier artists working on the title so far keeps things fresh and eye-popping. Astonishing X-Men is one Marvel title I hope sticks around for the long haul. 4/5 Read Full Review

    Astonishing X-Men is still the best X-Men book currently on the stands. That is not to say that Blue or Gold are bad, but for all its flaws, Astonishing has me consistently more engaged and interested in the characters. I do recommend this issue, but I do hope its problems get ironed out soon. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 4, 2017

    What's most important about Astonishing X-Men is that Soule has done a magnificent job at juggling his team of mutants, and more importantly, knows how they work together and what has made them so beloved by readers for years. And in that regard, this might not be the strongest chapter of Astonishing X-Men, but you better believe I still can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 5, 2017

    While this series was billed as having more of a standalone approach to X-men storytelling than most X-books, it doesn't actually seem that way in practice. This opening storyline reads very much like one, continuous conflict. And a conflict that's becoming painfully drawn out, no less. Read Full Review

    Too much stuff, not enough space. What we do get is decent, though. Read Full Review
