    Albeit NEW MUTANTS #2's story feels a tad fast, the fun space adventure continues to be a must read X-title! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 27, 2019

    Rod Reis' art really sells the tone. His characters look great. His sci-fi renderings are a little underwhelming, but so far, that's okay. A lot of the Dawn Of X books have been kind of dour and serious, so it's really nice to have a palette cleanser as great as this one in the line-up. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 27, 2019

    Rod Reis' art reflects the lighter tone of the story Hickman is crafting. There isn't a lot of action to be had and that's fine. I would like to see the art evolve a little more with the character expressions, but there are some great visual moments in this issue. The final pages are fantastic and everything with Cannonball and the team looks good. Read Full Review

    If youre looking for something charming, witty, and entertaining that actually develops the characters within the team in a fun way not seen throughout Marvel Comics today, this is your comic. Hickman and Reis blend together masterfully making this comic uniquely full of life. Sure, the action within the opening two-issue has been lacking however, the cliffhanger leaves a bit of room for something interesting to arise as early as the next issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 27, 2019

    This is a delight and a pure joy for X-Men fans. It'll be hard to pass this up since its identity is so strongly team-based and a young team at that. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Dec 1, 2019

    This one surprises me in terms of how well characterised and drawn it is. One of the more upbeat and genuine of the Dawn of X titles, true to the ethos of the namesake as well as perfectly in keeping with the new era. Oh and just one request...more Lila please?? Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Nov 29, 2019

    New Mutants #2 continues to captivate you on this experience you aren't going to get anywhere else. Mutants in space is nothing new, but you have to give credit where it is due that not many are willing to have fun like this with it. Be a rebel, live by your own rules, make memories along the way. That is what this team is doing. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 27, 2019

    New Mutants #2 continues the fun adventure. While the focus shifts a little, the comic is still all about the team and character interactions. There's a lot of humor to the comic and everything is with a wink, smile, and a nod. There's a charm about this series that's infectious and makes it stand out. Read Full Review

    GWW - Dusty Good Nov 27, 2019

    Reis' art is amazing and a deviation from the standard art that readers are used on team books. Paired with Lanham's vibrant colors this comic pops off the page! The end product is a visual adventure that readers are going to want to take their time to enjoy. While I was skeptical about this series in issue one, seeing the direction that Hickman is taking has me invested and wanting more. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Nov 28, 2019

    New Mutants is making a play for being one of the mostlight-hearted of the Dawn of X titles, and it's easy to achieve thatwhen you have such a strong group of close friends at its core. Not every joke lands (the court sequence wants to be funnier than it is),but enough do that it's a breeze to read. The next couple of issues willbe returning back to Earth and Krakoa for a different group of youngmutants. While I'm looking forward to that it will be a day-countingcouple of months until issue #5 comes out, because this story has beenan incredibly fun ride thus far and I can't wait to see what happens next.

    Fun characters, fun character moments and a generally nifty space adventure make for an overall enjoyable " if unremarkable " addition to Dawn of X. Read Full Review

    This title still has time to work itself out (and since this is written so late, in many respects it already has.) But as of this issue, it needed a lot of work. Read Full Review
