    This book is like an overripe pomegranate: swollen decadence with a heart full of rot. Pick it up, if you dare. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Mar 2, 2023

    Sins Of Sinister's first set of issues comes to a close with ‘Immoral X-Men' #1 as the utopia of Sinister's design continues to go anything but planned for the immoral geneticist. A rapid-paced issue with some solid visuals that moves the overall plot forward and sets things up nicely for what is to come in the second act of the event. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 22, 2023

    Immoral X-Men is great reading as it continues the story of the main event book while shining a light on key mutant players. Even in the greatest realities for Mr. Sinister, he seems to lose and be the sore loser he was born to be. A great exploration of X-Men characters in your new favorite alternate reality event.

    In Immoral X-Men #1 writer Kieron Gillen decides that even though the doors of Xavier's have been closed for years Mr. Sinister still needs some instructing. Leinil Yu's cover may show readers the guest professor, but the moral of the story may make you question the syllabus. Read Full Review

    If there is one thing you can count on when picking up a Kieron Gillen book, it's that the characters will be written well and the story will make sense. Gillen does fine work turning our heroes into villains and our villains into heroes Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 1, 2023

    Immoral X-Men #1 has a vibe that makes up for some of the weaknesses of the story. Emma is awesome, Sinister is a bit disappointing, but the set-up is intriguing. The art is pretty strong, but nothing jumps out. All in all, its a pretty cool comic. Read Full Review

    This might as well be the next issue of Immortal X-Men. Which is still good, mind you. It simply feels less like an event. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 22, 2023

    While I generally enjoyed Immoral X-Men #1, there's a choppiness to the narrative that took me out of it. There was almost too much jumping around between Sinister and the Quiet Council and a focus on one or the other would have been stronger. Still, it highlights that this is an alternate timeline tale that's a bit different than what has come before. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Feb 22, 2023

    Truthfully, Immoral X-Men was the series I was the most excited for which could be why Im the harshest of the three. It just didnt perform as the other two series did in the saga to date. Nevertheless, Im not giving up on Sins of Sinister after one semi-down issue. It sticks with events to date and I'm simply hoping the plot starts to take fans somewhere soon. Yet, I said this in my last review and Ill say it again if this story gets wiped away by a Moira clone like it never happened, Im gonna be pissed! Readers need ramifications. Otherwise, it makes the story pointless. Please dont do that to us, Gillen. Read Full Review

    Immoral X-Men #1 had many good elements and sections I was lukewarm about. The premise is good, but the application is rough in parts. Read Full Review
