    All in all I have to say this book is the gift that keeps on giving. Just as I think we are coming to the end of the drama the next stage is set and events step up a gear to keep me guessing as to what the final outcome will be. Read Full Review

    New Mutants #22 continues to blend strong character work with bonkers visuals and action. Come for the intense visuals you'll get nowhere else, but stay for the genuine heartfelt emotions and deep thoughts on what it means to be a person. Read Full Review

    I've got to show wild love to Rod Reis for his artwork in New Mutants #22. So many pages feature incredibly layered scenes that create a sense of excitement, confusion, and chaos at one point or another. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 13, 2021

    New Mutants #22 does a great job of juxtaposing Shadow Kings pessimism with the power of community. Ayala presents both sides very well. Reiss art does a good job of illustrating the issue. Its an entertaining issue and continues this grand, long Shadow King story Ayala has been building. Read Full Review
