    This was a nice little story. I love Doug Ramsey. Ever since his rebirth during Necrosha, he has easily become one of my favorite characters. Read Full Review

    Despite the minor flaws with its execution, it seems as though the book's new direction is going to work well. The creative team is solid, if still finding its feet, and at least they're aiming high. If every issue ends up this ambitious with its content and approach, the decision to take New Mutants in a new direction will be fully justified. Read Full Review

    I'm kind of disappointed with this issue, as the volume as a whole has been really well done. Hopefully this arc won't last longer than it needs to, and we can get back to the inter-personal drama that's made this series a winner. I want to see more of the characters that the book is supposed to be about, not a long introduction to a villain when a short one will do. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Jun 25, 2011

    Not the strongest second issue to a run for Abnett and Lanning. This title has a lot of potential to be something more than a comic that X-fans just buy out of a sense of “buy everything”, but it needs to ramp up the pacing, ramp up the crazy and have slightly stronger art that is more willing to experiment. One of my biggest frustrations with Big 2 superhero comics is when 3rd tier titles (which is what New Mutants is) seem willing to settle for being mediocre. Abnett and Lanning gave us a cosmic bromance between an anthropomorphic raccoon and an ambulatory tree in Guardians of the Galaxy. C'mon guy! Go for it! This standard story pacing and predictable story isn't going to boost New Mutants to “must read” status. Read Full Review
