    Overall this was a fantastic issue that put relationships on display. It had several moving moments and delivered a truly engaging completion to Karma’s journey. It looks like this series may have found its groove again. Read Full Review

    The issue has a few odd pages where the artwork and dialogue seem to disagree about what the characters are supposed to be doing, but this a beautiful and emotionally rich story that's some of the best character-centered storytelling to take place in the modern X-Men era. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley May 26, 2021

    Overall this issue had some strong visual keys as well as a compelling narrative that worked well together to put across the two main characters struggle and fed the story perfectly. All while still leaving questions unanswered, making me hanker for next issue. And with the truly psychedelic cover from Christian Ward, showing the grim determination of Shan, it is the perfect companion to the previous one with Dani in a similar setting. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 27, 2021

    New Mutants #18 is the best issue of Ayala and Reiss run by a country mile. Both of them are at the top of their game for this book, and it shows. The key to this issue is the emotions of the character and the creators hit with all cylinders. Things are building nicely, and hopefully, the creative team can keep up the quality of this issue in the stories to come. Read Full Review

    Ayala brings a voice to these characters that is both wholly charming and completely authentic while Rod Reis knocks every scene out of the park with his gorgeous pencilwork. Read Full Review
