    Extraordinary X-Men #6 is a fun issue sending a variant of a classic X-Men team into the wild world of Weirdworld. It's a fun place to see this team work and Lemire and Ibanez temper the weirdness with some great moments back at the school in Limbo. Extraordinary X-Men is…wait for it…extraordinary, and issue #5 is continuing what has been a solid run so far. Read Full Review

    Extraordinary X-Men had a rocky start in its first few months, but things are looking up for the series as it begins its second story arc. Jeff Lemire is beginning to dig deeper into his cast of characters and push them in interesting new directions. The change in artist also helps the book's prospects. Hopefully this upward trend will continue as the new arc unfolds. Read Full Review

    EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #6 shifts down a gear from the previous issues " which is the best thing it could have done. This issue is a great example for how much X-Men awesomeness fits into 22 pages. Read Full Review

    "Extraordinary X-Men" #6 feels like a big step forward for the series; there's now a hook to make readers want to read more, with characters and plotlines having shifted to a more proactive stance. If you'd been a little underwhelmed with the series debut, give "Extraordinary X-Men" #6 a shot. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised now that the series' direction has been firmly established. All in all, a nice job from Lemire and Ibanez. Read Full Review

    The art inside this book compliments Humberto Ramos's art, but it absolutely is not his art inside this book. One of my favorite reasons for getting this series was Ramos's art because it reminds me that the X-men are a fun team and yes, they can be serious but the playfulness and extraordinary colors in this series just makes it all fun. It was a tad disappointing that Ramos art was not inside this book, not to say that Ibanez did a horrible job but the art in this book does work well with all of the characters. I did have to chuckle that he made Logan's face look like an very old Hobbit. For an artist to step in and take care of the art for an issue, Ibanez did a decent job. I hope Ramos is back on the inside art next issue but would still be alright if Ibanez returned again. Read Full Review

    Lots of good character work, some successful plot twists, and unique interior art (under an unforgivably goofy cover) make for a good reader, even if you're not a hardcore X-fan… Read Full Review

    This is the best issue of Extraordinary X-Men yet. Lemire has given us a more interesting premise for the story and he writes it well. The art team has come out and put together the best art this series has seen so far. If this keeps up Extraordinary X-Men could be back to getting on track and being the first book read off of the pull list. Read Full Review

    And I think that is where this issue disappoints. A premise rife with potential opens with a forgettable first chapter. Like I said, its not bad. Its just very average and makes it feel like this arc will be less an epic X-tale into a strange land and more just filler. And sometimes being boring is worse than being bad. Heres hoping this story can redeem itself. Read Full Review
