    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Oct 4, 2017

    Iceman #6 continues to find and use its voice. Having a firm focus guides the story and helps the story feel cohesive on one level, and it addresses the elephant in the room by putting a spotlight on Bobby being gay and how that fits into his life. The team works together to tell a good story at every level, though there are a couple of areas that detract from the strength of the narrative. Bobby and the team working around him are heading in a good direction that I hope is full of way more gay boy kisses. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 4, 2017

    This new story arc turned out much better than I had anticipated. There were fears for if this is when the book might start to lose us, but a different direction didn't mean losing what this has been at the core. That big tag which says Legacy I'm sure inspired this choice in story to tell. Iceman #6 gave us an Iceman who has some interesting friends, ways to go building himself up outside of being an X-Man, and up to the challenge when it comes to taking that first step following acceptance of being gay.

    Iceman reuniting with the original Champions is about as fun as I could have hoped! Unfortunately " or fortunately, depending on what you want from his comic " the issue undercuts its major selling point with some distracting subplots! Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 6, 2017

    Bobby coming out and learning how to act on his true feelings should be the emotional core of this book. Instead, it's a chore to get through. Instead of Bobby discovering the real him, the series can be summed up so far as "Iceman is gay, and that's weird, right?" Read Full Review
