    Overall ‘New Mutants’ almost made me pee my pants it was so hilarious. If the future issues in this series deliver what this one has, then it could swiftly become one of the best series on the market. Go pick this one up, you won’t regret it. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Jan 9, 2020

    New Mutants has been an interesting experiment so far in how you can tell multiple stories around a theme of characters in a single book, and "Endangered Birds" is a good example of how good it can be when itworks. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 8, 2020

    Another fun issue that continues to spread the love across the team. I'd argue this is the strongest team book amongst the Dawn of X line and it's a colorful adventure you should not miss. Read Full Review

    The Daily Fandom - Alex Smith-Petersen Jan 10, 2020

    Muller's contributions to the data pages are always refreshing, bringing a level of design work not seen in any other book from Marvel. Lanham pulls it all together on lettering, mastering the flow of the dialogue and executing beats excellently. Everyone comes together to form such an appealing package. It represents some of the very best comics Marvel is putting out. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jan 8, 2020

    It's back to space with New Mutants #5, and that is where the fun begins again. It has been bold jumping between two stories, but at the very least it is good to know that Hickman isn't trying to make it too sporadic or frustrating having to wait x amount of time to know what happens next.

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Jan 9, 2020

    Jonathan Hickman's writing on New Mutants is him in full goofball mode, more in line with that issue of Future Foundation where Peter Parker and Johnny Storm (and Annihilus) were roommates than the overall seriousness of his Avengers work and a step further than the glimpses of lightness found in the flagship X-Men series.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 11, 2020

    Even though this New Mutants storyline has forgone Dawn of X, this is still a charming and fun issue that makes great use of its characters and story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Jan 9, 2020

    This book is enjoyable. I wont lie and say the narrator made it unreadable, he didnt. I was smiling and chuckling for most of the books. The artwork is beautiful, it is, its retro-futuristic with just enough rejected Star Wars concept art to keep it interesting and together with the overall energy of the cast and the dialogue it works, even if the narrator and the cheap cliff-hanger did grate the nerves a little.
