    This has been a lot of action for such a short series! It's great. Art has not disappointing. This was a fun read but didn't blow me away. I feel like we will have a lot of drama and sacrifice next issue. Read Full Review

    Their art just isn't my cup of tea, that's all. Certainly not enough to turn me away from the stories in characters, but definitely not enhancing my experience. If Thompson continues with Mr. & Mrs. X, or whatever the title turns into next, I wouldn't mind if someone else handled the artwork going forward. Read Full Review

    The enjoyable Rogue & Gambit series continues its enjoyableness unabated, and throws in a deeper understanding of its characters for the fun of it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 21, 2018

    Mr. & Mrs. X #4 was a fun, fast-paced issue that continued the strong momentum Kelly Thompson's has created for this series. Thompson understanding and love for Rogue and Gambit is made clear throughout this issue as she tests their relationship in different ways that makes them a stronger pair. The involvement of the Starjammers, Shi'ar Empire and Deathbird made the entire conflict around the child of Professor Xavier and Lilandra even stronger. If you are an X-Men fan you should give Mr. & Mrs. X a shot. Read Full Review

    MR. AND MRS. X #4 is a dynamic issue that brings a lot to the table, even if it struggles to juggle it all. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Phillip Pratt Oct 30, 2018

    Kelly Thompson's Mr. and Mrs. X #4 started off masterfully good with a lot of really great moments between Rogue and Gambit. As always, Oscar's art was on point throughout the book. Up until the halfway mark, there is nothing to really complain about. But again, that is where it began to run into some problems, not to mention it ends on a cliffhanger we basically saw in the first issue. Fans of the books will not be discouraged (as yours truly), but I encourage anyone on the cusp to just hang in there. Future solicits promise that this is going to continue to be a fun ride.
