    An excellent refocusing on what a "New Mutants" book can be in the Krokoan era of X-Books. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 29, 2021

    New Mutants #15 has a lot going for it, but the art doesn't help much. Ayala does a great job building up to why it's so easy for Shadow King to get his claws into the mutants and do some excellent character. Reis's art, though, barely does the script any favors. It's okay in some places but sketchy and rushed in others. Still, the book is definitely worth a read. Read Full Review

    Beautifully written issue by Vita Ayala. Rod Reis does his dope watercolor like artistic thing, as expected. I'm a particularly big fan of the nearly devoid of color white that Reis bestows on Shadow King and can't wait to see more of this potential threat. This was another good go with the New Mutants, and I'm intrigued where all of these threads are leading. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jan 27, 2021

    Overall, this heavily packed issue is setting up multiple plot points that could easily take this story in varying directions. Ayala clearly has a plan for this group of gifted youngsters, and the use of the Shadow King as a villain is a top selection! This team of creatives has combined to produce an enticing issue, layered with opportunity. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Jan 27, 2021

    Despite the hodge podge of narrative text the overall story was, as Sunspot said, well overdue. I just felt the art let it down, where normally it is the stronger and more dynamic tool in the creative field in this title. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Jan 27, 2021

    There is certainly a ton of emotional build-up in these pages, however, its too much and too spread out for anyone to grab a hold of and feel for the characters involved. Moreover, readers know very little about Cosmar, whos become a focus of the series, and we continue to learn less and less about the actual NEW MUTANTS as the series continues. I hate to say it, but this series is slowly working its way to being at the bottom of my stack each week it comes out. Where is the team Jonathan Hickman put together and why cant we refocus on them? Thanks for the read and feel free to let me know what you think. Have a great week and God bless! Read Full Review
