    AiPT! - Russ Dobler Nov 22, 2017

    It's fine, but man is it slow. It feels like writer Ed Brisson is trying to move Cable along a bit, while artist Malin wants his image to be stuck in a bygone time. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 26, 2017

    Cable's cast of fan-favorite Mutants overshadows the stringy, thin looking artwork. Even with a rather dull color pallet too, it's undeniably appealing for any X-Men fan to see these characters operate together. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Robert Struble Dec 17, 2017

    Brisson is clearly a fan of X-Men comics as he draws from the last three decades of X-Men and X-Force comics for his story, but it still feels unnatural and forced. It's like taking a trip down memory lane but just being given snippets that make almost no sense out of context. It's fun and all, but it's missing that real "wow" factor. Read Full Review

    Welcome to the comic where the '90s never ended. But perhaps they should have, because this is an irredeemable mess. Read Full Review

    I was not going into this expecting it to be all that good, especially after the last issue. But this was good! I enjoyed it!

    Well I cannot tell that's some surprise in it.
    I'm a little not convinced by armor been at the school 13 year before (With the Shatterstar 90's look), but we will pass that.
    If I wanted to see some Exiles spirit with Blink, that's now shure she isn't the Exiles one (That will be a little complicated for explain how they will keep Marvel timeline right - She reappear in New Mutants - But I think Marvel Staff didn't give a crap to that. Prof is the fact that the original X-men are still there - Maybe for another timeline now).
    I liked that Brisson misleading us on what Longshot seen.
    But I have a question. Where the hell's the badass character who entwine Selene on the cover ?

    Cover - Very nice but not close to more

    After their first confrontation, both Cable and Selene decide to expand their teams. The "who's killing Externals?" mystery chugs slowly toward enlightenment. The storytelling is done in a workmanlike "meets expectations" fashion, but this is one of those tales where the creators have omitted any engaging hooks. There's no compelling reason to pick this story up unless you're already a big fan of the participants. The addition of Armor and X-23 to the hero squad reveal yet another of Jon Malin's artistic weaknesses: He's unable to portray these characters as the adolescent girls the "13 years ago" setting says they should be.
