    Comic Watch - James Cesena Jan 8, 2018

    Just before this issue hit the shelves, it was announced that issue #11 would be the series' last. I have no doubts that Sina Grace and the creative team have something very special in store for the final chapters, on what will remain Marvel's best Iceman series ever. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 5, 2018

    Iceman #9 is a great read, and Sina Grace has a fantastic grasp of the character while taking Bobby in new directions previous writers have not. The comic is emotionally engaging, and the artistic team is quite talented. I definitely see why Joe Glassloves this one so much.I highly recommend this one. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - PorkChop Edwards Feb 13, 2018

    Overall, the story and the way its delivered is well done. Easy to follow, and very fluid. If you can get past the perpetual squinting of most characters, this issue will make an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Eric Cline Jan 3, 2018

    Iceman #9 is a good time with funny and touching moments abound. I'm not fully sold on Daken yet, but I'm still looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 6, 2018

    A really strong, character-heavy story is interrupted by a crazy villain plot that doesn't gel as well as the creative team would seem to want. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jan 6, 2018

    It's a chore to read this series every month, which is a shame because in theory it could've worked. Nothing against Sina Grace, I just don't think his brand of storytelling translates here and this comic ends up feeling uninspired. Read Full Review

    His boyfriend is just a terrible character, and what's up with all the kids saying "Mr. Drake taught me life lesson one and three" all the time?? Daken is by far the most interesting character in this series. By the way, he would make a waaay better suit for the Iceman.

    Even Daken can't save this book. I do not care about Bobby or his boyfriend. The best parts of this issue was seeing the other more interesting mutants from other titles appear. I'm glad Daken killed Bobby's boyfriend, he was a waste of space and boring as hell. And the dialogue just sucks, it screams of someone trying to be hip and cool but failing.

    Daken turns Bobby's farewell party into a villain apotheosis. He's activating a Death Seed, and he wants to do it in front of Bobby because … I dunno? He feels that Bobby's "timey-wimey nonsense gave me a gay revelation" schtick is stepping on the toes of his own more simplistic "I'm bi and sleazy and evil" deal, maybe? It's not fun to look at (except for a few pages of nice Bobby vs. Daken fighting), the jokes aren't funny, and the otherwise promising plot takes way too much effort to unearth.

    I agree with the MFR review: Reading this series is a chore. I wish it weren't, but it is. Sina Grace is so obsessed with packing his dialogue full of snark and wit and bad jokes and tryhard hipness that deciphering the actual plot poin more
