    I've always really liked Phil Noto as at artist. I feel like his style is a good match for this series. This is a great way to start the new Act II arc because it opens so many doors. A young Charles Xavier back from the dead can cause a lot of dilemmas, even though it seems like a good thing. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jan 6, 2018

    Astonishing X-Men has been the best X-Book since ResurreXion, that doesn't change here. Charles Soule is master of mutant meddling and plotting. He's a big contributor in getting the X-Men back on track as a whole. Phil Noto makes for another delightful collaboration on this title with his outstanding artwork. Read Full Review

    Of the three current ongoing X-Men titles, this is still by far the best one. Read Full Review

    This issue sets up a narrative that is bound to be both a great flip on the status quo and a story that stays faithful to what makes the X-Men great. While theres a lot of crossover between the two, doing it right is still no easy task. If you missed out on the first arc, ASTONISHING X-MEN #7 is the perfect spot to get into the action!

    Noto is very rarely going to knock you out with his sequential work the way he can with his standalone illustrations and design, but he helps make this script s Read Full Review

    So with one of the best writers in the business teamed up with one of the most consummate and talented artists in the business in Phil Noto, Astonishing X-Men readers are in good hands going forward as "A Man Called X" unfolds over the next several months. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jan 3, 2018

    There's quite a bit going on here, but Charles Soule manages to keep the story straight while also allowing it to develop further. Xavier is back and bearing gifts in Astonishing X-Men (2017-) #7, and although I am unsure if there isn't something rotten in the state of Denmark, by way of Xavier's return, I'm looking forward to Issue #8.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jan 6, 2018

    This was a little bit of a slower issue for Astonishing X-Men, but it was still a good read. Charles Soule has been putting out the best X-book every month since this title debuted. The rotating artists hasn't affected the book in any way and Noto fills in nicely. Astonishing X-Men should still be the first X-book you read this week. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Ouellette Jan 9, 2018

    "A Man Called X," is a decent start to another story arc in which the X-Men will be required to deal with the aftermath of a man who has spent death in anything other than eternal rest and instead has been locked in endless torment. Naturally, no one comes back the same way they left. I'm sure Xavier will be no exception. The question is, will we be the better for it? Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 8, 2018

    If youve really enjoyed the past few issues of Astonishing, then this one will likely appeal to you as well. I cant quite recommend it though. The story is far too bloated and uninteresting while still being far too complicated for its own good. It underuses almost all of its characters, and Noto will be gone next issue. Read Full Review
