The wheels have come off the Hellions bandwagon. They might all hate one another, but Nanny LOVES her latest addition! Who would be so cruel as to stomp on her happiness? It's not who you think!

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Oct 6, 2021

    Everything Hellions has been building to since its debut begins to collide in a highly emotional and engaging way that never strays from the book's winning character-focused format. Change is coming for Krakoa and this series is clearly one of the stepping stones to what will be coming next for the future of the mutant society. Read Full Review

    I would be worried about slipping into hyperbole when praising this story, but the book's so good that it honestly deserves it. I am absolutely in love with these murderous underdogs. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 13, 2021

    Hellions #16 is an issue of build-up expertly done. Wells lays out a script that is heavy on emotion, and it lands amazingly, with Segovias pencils bringing it all to life. This is set up done right. Read Full Review

    Hellions#16 hits the emotional beats where it needs to and begins to wrap up the series on a holistic note. It's sad to see the book go, but it's clear Wells is doing this on his own terms, giving the series a chance to reach its natural conclusion. After all, isn't that the best way to end a story?

    However, with the good does come a bit of bad. HELLIONS #16 ends with the focus on Nanny and it just wasnt as exciting or passionate as the rest of the issue. Ultimately, the ending of the issue fell a bit flat compared to the rest of the comic. Plus, the Nanny elements of the team were never really the strongest components. And now, it appears as though the series is heading down that avenue for at least an issue or two coming up. That said, Nanny has always added a unique wrinkle to the team that has made her a strong side character. Still, the lead for an issue or two may be too much. Read Full Review

    Hellions, you truly were the best of the "Reign of X." While the series will be missed, I simply cannot wait to see how it all ends. Read Full Review

    Overall Hellions managed to show us that even a more low-key issue could pack just as much of a punch as the more action or comedic installments of the series. There are some fantastic character moments in this issue alone that reinforces why this has been and continues to be one of the top x-books being released. Read Full Review

    "Hellions" is a team book, so roster changes are par for the course, but in the Hickman-era no team can truly compete with the Hellions, even if they are breaking down. "Hellions" No.16 let's readers in on the secret adhesive that holds this title together as other groups go about their fall in the vein of "X-Factor" & "Children of the Atom" . There's evolution regardless even if the reset button is pushed a few more times. Read Full Review
