    With Hellions #9, Wells and Segovia guarantee that their cast of oddball mutants have been elevated to break-out stars of the X-Books. As quirky as it is thrilling, as disturbing as it is warm, and as funny as it is punchy, this issue starts a new arc by juggling several on-going plots with a new storyline that brings a classic villain to the Reign of X. With this many balls in the air, the Murderworld circus has officially started! Read Full Review

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, odd characters and body part shapes not withstanding. What's not to like; a break from the Krakoan arc and a couple fo old school villains to boot. I can't wait for the next issue! Read Full Review

    There clearly isn't a ton divulged this issue other than the key players. However, the pacing and character development have my interest piqued for next month. HELLIONS is still a must-read and I highly recommend giving this issue a look. Read Full Review

    Final Thoughts:While this issue was a quick read there sure is a whole lot going on! Zeb Wells leads what is one of my favorite of all the “X” book ongoings in his typical snarky, fun fashion. Mr. Sinister is also cementing his place as one of my favorite mutants ever!! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 6, 2021

    Hellions continues it's hot streak of entertaining issues and fan service. Hellions #9 starts a new arc that seems very promising and includes old adversaries that haven't been seen in a while. Zeb Wells knows these characters and he writes them like they are his friends. The pencils and colors are top notch, but that's nothing new for this book. Hellions is a must read for X-Men fans.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 3, 2021

    Hellions #9 is a good issue. Wells shows that he can do a lot with his characters in a few pages, using his page space strategically. The main plot of the issue is pretty interesting as well, as Sinister is outsmarted and Mastermind just does exactly what he's known for doing. The surprise villain reveal at the end is pretty great as well, as it's a villain that hasn't been seen in a bit and is always fun when he shows up. Segovia's art is the icing on the cake, his character acting, selling the issue's moments admirably. Hellions #9 sets up a new storyline and does some cool character work. Read Full Review

    Hellions #9 is another impressive issue featuring one of the most idiosyncratic, darkly funny, and action-prone casts in all of superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Rather like cream, well written second banana characters always rise to the top if written well. Or by Zeb Wells. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Lia Galanis Feb 3, 2021

    ThoughHellions#9 doesn't do much to answer the myriad of questions the title has raised, it is a fun ride. Wells continues to capture the wonderful dysfunction of this team's dynamic and Segovia's pencils tie it all together in a beautiful knot. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Feb 3, 2021

    Overall there isn’t much to say about this issue. It’s more setup for the next main story than anything. It has its shaky moments at the start, but then gets really dark and exciting. The next arc is going to be one not to be missed. Read Full Review
