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

    New Mutants #17 has some intriguing things going on under the surface that make it better than it would be. The story going through the book is fascinating because of what it says about mutants and whats happening to them on Krakoa. However, the books other plots are alright at best. Reiss art is highly subjective, with some good parts and some parts that might not appeal to everyone. New Mutants works more because of whats under the surface than whats on it. Read Full Review

    Im loving the body politic points being raised here. This dissatisfaction of the kids is beginning to be a familiar refrain in this title and it has a lot of potential, I just hope it doesnt become too belabored. But Im really keen to find out what Shadow King is playing at. Keep it coming gang, this is one of my favorite X-titles of late. Read Full Review

    Rod Reis' art makes every page come to life with a beautiful gloss. Ayala's writing continues to shine, capturing the voices of all these characters quite well. Read Full Review

    New Mutants reads in a fractured fashion; issue #17 focuses on a journey to Otherworld, but diverts its attention to multiple detours with each lasting only 2 to 3 pages. These detours have only the faintest connections within the issue, which often makes them read like check-ins on the level of plot. Read Full Review

    Overall this series is hitting some bumps in the road. Trying to tell two completely different stories at the same time is really hurting the book. This issue really suffered for those reasons. If it wasn't for the exceptional art, I probably would have dropped this series already. Read Full Review
