    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jan 12, 2021

    X-MEN fans will become intimate with Dani Moonstar before this one-shot ends due to the cerebral journey CLAREMONT takes the readers on. Its thorough and, to a degree, unduly packed with commentary, dialogue, and exposition. Nevertheless, this is his style and again lends itself well to comprehension. But, that's CHRIS CLAREMONT. He's more direct and less subtle than current writers, which is refreshing to this reviewer who finds himself currently wondering what's going on frequently in comics needing a summary page to catch up.

    So while it's nothing Earth-shattering or indispensible, this issue is a nice throwback to the days when the mutants - and Claremont - ruled the world of comics. Read Full Review

    If fanservice and nostalgia are not your thing, this book likely won't be either. However, if you're interested in Claremont's writing and his journey as a writer, the anniversary special may offer a decent amount of value. Read Full Review

    The Chris Claremont Anniversary Special has a clear objective of revisiting and honoring the work of an iconic writer, which it does a good job of doing. However its value to a reader may likely be determined by the familiarity of Claremonts body of work. The end result is narratively disjointed, self-referential to the core and at times lost in its remembrance of greatness and creates a barrier to newer readers., However, the gorgeous art and coloring highlight some of the most interesting ideas and its relationship to Claremonts defining body of work.
