    Feel-good X-Men comic of the year? I wouldn't go that far, what with the whole Earth-will-soon-be-uninhabitable-for-mutants scenario. But Lemire, Ibanez and Sorrentino definitely make me sympathetic to an X-Man I never cared much about. I'd call that accomplishment " extraordinary! Read Full Review

    Extraordinary X-Men has been very good lately. There could be any number of reasons why, but it seems like Lemire is thriving with these smaller, self-contained stories. The art has also gotten better as Ibanez has gotten more comfortable with the characters. Its a shame the title will be ending as it starts to heat up. Read Full Review

    Instead of ruining the flow of this title, the Inhumans Vs. X-Men crossover has enabled Lemire to bring a brewing subplot to the forefront. A full issue focusing on Forges internal struggles and feeling of neglect isnt the most exciting read but every now and then, its important to take a step back and have these kinds of stories to remind readers of these beloved characters humanity. Like Forge himself, its not flashy but its essential nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Extraordinary X-Men # 18 is an Inhumans vs. X-Men tie-in that appears to take place shortly before the third issue. And while it doesn't advance that storyline, it does throw the spotlight on Forge, a character who has been underutilized for a long time. Read Full Review
