    I'm still not convinced that New Mutants' slot in the shipping schedule is best served by this team and their exploits, which frankly is a bit worrying as we're nearing the one year point. However, this issue is one of the better outings by this title's standards and does some good work with the new additions to the cast, as well as effectively setting up a villain for the team to push against later down the road.

    If Marvel is insisting on winding back the clock to a "classic" line-up of "New Mutants," at least Wells is the writer helming the book. As much as I'd rather have seen his talents on a new group of characters, with a trail of poor sales figure leading up to this point, I suppose we'll have to take what we can get. The concept may not be stellar, but Wells makes it fun none the less. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chad Derdowski Jan 8, 2010

    All-in-all, it was a pretty solid issue but nothing to write home about. Which is odd, because I’m writing a review of it so I guess it clearly was something to write home about. Or at least, something to write to Mania about. Anyway, it was good but not great. I’m tempted to give it a C+ but I think I’m going with a B- because I really do enjoy the way Zeb Wells writes these characters. If you’re a New Mutants fan, I assume you’d like this issue.
