    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 3, 2020

    I gotta say that so far New Mutants #12 is the winner of this run. At least since the direction shifted from the space adventure. This is the kind of story you expected when the New Mutants decided to take the fight to the people who were still making it hard to live in this world peacefully. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Sep 2, 2020

    This issue of New Mutants is powerful in speech and providing metaphors for the fight among marginalized classes through mutants. It may not be action oriented, but it is the content that really breathes life into this incredible issue of New Mutants. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Gabriel Hernandez Sep 2, 2020

    NEW MUTANTS #12 takes a pretty vanilla X-team story, blends it with a real world issue, and creates a story that reminds you that mutants can be just as human, if not more so, than anyone else. Probably the best X-title I've read in a very long while. Read Full Review

    X fans/comic fans need to head to their LCS or favorite digital platform and read this issue. This issue is a perfect example of the foundation of what X-men books were built on. You can thank me later! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Sep 5, 2020

    This is perhaps one of the more important issue of New Mutants since the relaunch. Dealing with bullies, on line or in real life is something that everyone has to deal with at one point or another. How you handle that situation is very important. Ed Brisson knows and loves these character and it shows in his writing. The pencils and colors worked and looked very good on the page. New Mutants is a sensational book. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 9, 2020

    New Mutants #12 is a nice one and done that ties up a bunch of loose ends from other issues, ending the DOX website's threat. Brisson picks up a plot thread involving Nova Roma, a nice bit of set-up that will eventually pay-off. Failla's art makes everything look great, especially the stuff with Glob. Brisson and company give readers a good succinct issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Sep 4, 2020

    I enjoyed the balance of mutant and human locations in issue #12 of New Mutants. Failla has been my favorite New Mutant artist of this run and he shines again with Glob as the unexpected MVP. Ed Brisson has been delivering an at times ambitious book, but certainly one that does the New Mutants justice. Which is a lot more than we can say for the movie that should've come out years ago.

    Overall this was an enjoyable read with a great message. Definitely one of Ed Brisson's better issues in this series. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Jamie Lovett Sep 2, 2020

    We do get some new insight into Glob Herman's past, which is nice, but on the whole, the issue would have served its subject better by delivering its message through story instead being a sermon in comic book form. Read Full Review
