    New Mutants #31 sets up an exciting, complex and adventurous beginning for the very queer next generation of mutants. Plus, creative team of Charlie Jane Anders and Alberto Alburquerque might be the Louise Simonson and Bret Blevins to Vita Ayala and Rod Reis direct take on Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewiczs legacy; all filtered through Grant Morrisons impact on the X-Men universe. The best of a fresh and modern story with a care for the creatives that came before them. Im so excited to see this comic unfold further. Read Full Review

    All in all, New Mutants #31 is fine. Its average, which is a step down from what it was before. It has its moments, and Anders, Alburquerque, and company show potential. Itll be interesting to see how this book goes in the future. Read Full Review
