    In issue two, Wells creates such a captivating rhythm by constantly moving the action among three settings: the bar where Cannonball and Roberto wait with Shans body, Illyana and Magma at Marcis home, and Shan and Marci trapped in Legions mind. The narrative moves at a breakneck speed, while the plot twists have the reader sitting on the razors edge of suspense. These reviewer-favorite euphemisms are perfect for convincing people. This new, New Mutants series is turning out to be the best New Mutants series. Read Full Review

    I'll admit to being on the fence - and at times downright negative - about a relaunch of New Mutants, but issue #2 has proved it's a piece of the X-Men franchise with great story possibilities under the right guidance. Once this band of mutants gets their act together and once Neves becomes a little more comfortable and is given more to work with, this could turn into a stellar series. Read Full Review

    Hell, if you just want to read a good team book, look no further. You don’t even have to be well-versed (or even poorly-versed) in X-lore to pick this book up and enjoy it. With the exception of Legion, everything in it is fairly self-explanatory (or at the very least easy to figure out) and reminds me of the old days when villains used to do dastardly deeds and heroes swooped in to save the day. Good stuff. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 1, 2009

    After only two issues, "New Mutants" has won me over in a big way. I'm not certain this title has established enough for an ongoing, but based upon the samples Wells, Neves, and crew have provided to this point, I'm more than willing to find out. The adventures that occurred before aren't critical to the enjoyment of this version, as the title is strong enough to stand on its own merit. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Antony Ellis Jun 7, 2009

    Wells has bounced back after a bit of an average issue and I’m looking forward to where he takes this cast of characters from the former students they once were to fully fledged X-Men. I am hopeful that Wells continues the upward trend and continues to deliver. Read Full Review
