    Lemire's script is tight, voices are distinct and the plot is solid. Even a slight dissonance I felt with Nightcrawler' was acknowledged and I was cool with it. I just didn't find my world rocked by a comic by such a good writer. Read Full Review

    We are now thirteen issues into this series and it has yet to form any sort of identity. With the future of the X-Men up in the air it pains me to think of a world without an X-Men book. Perhaps though it would be better than this world were we have these books that barely exist. Sure they are there. You can physically see and read them. However, there is almost no reason to read them beyond blind obligation at this point. Maybe a separation will do us all some good. Read Full Review

    "The Apocalypse Wars" didn't really do Extraordinary X-Men any favors, and the series is still struggling to find its footing in the immediate aftermath. The visual presentation is improved, and Lemire's characterization is generally entertaining, but the various intertwining conflicts aren't much to write home about at the moment. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Aug 27, 2016

    Somehow Extraordinary X-Men #13 has transformed the story of a superpowered, adoptive family hopping across dimensions and fighting apocalyptic futures into something entirely stale. There's not a new idea or fresh visual to be found in these pages. While some moments are well-rendered, it's a lacquer that cannot cover the rotted interior for more than a moment. While this issue may be technically well assembled, it is a hollow rendering of something comics readers enjoyed decades ago. Read Full Review
