Deep in Shi'Ar space, the NEW MUTANTS have found themselves dead in the middle of an intergalactic power struggle. They're probably equipped to handle that, right? And back on Earth, the young mutants of Krakoa look forward to the future...whatever it may hold.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 19, 2020

    New Mutants #7 takes what could have been a by the numbers issue and stands the whole thing on its head in the best way possible. It's plain to see how much fun Hickman is having writing this issue because it's that much fun to read. Rod Reis's art is great, referencing classic New Mutants stylings while still keeping it his own. This issue is a treat. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Feb 19, 2020

    The New Mutants has always been about the relationship between these friends since they were teenagers. Seeing Mirage, Karma, Wolfsbane, Cypher, Cannonball and Sunspot all interact with each other like they did in their original run was nostalgic and hit all of those wonderful heartstrings. It is a story about friendship, and especially that between Cannonball and Sunspot. It's been many years since we have been able to see the dynamic between these two mutants. While the story is clunky, I am willing to push that aside to typical Shi'ar bullsh*t, because the character interactions in this are far too wonderful to miss. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Chris O'Connor Mar 2, 2020

    It's nice to have a bit of a light hearted read from time to time" it's even better when we can get that levity with characters that we love just doing their thing. It feels like this is more of a quiet point in a story line that could get a bit more frantic" but that just means this is a nice issue to slip into the story. Get to know the characters a little/more and have a fun read while you are at it. Worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Feb 20, 2020

    Overall this was one amazing issue that completely raises the bar. It was so exciting and fun and really gets me excited for more in the series. I haven’t laughed this hard reading a comic in ages, I highly recommend this one. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Feb 23, 2020

    Overall I have to say for me the risqu nature of the delivery this issue was genius. Though the humour could have seemed heavy handed and not in keeping, it was a delightful change from all the nation building drama and death going on, necessary as it is. This sweet sappy dessert is the perfect antidote to the heavy meal served up in the other Dawn of X titles. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 19, 2020

    It's through issues like New Mutants #7 where we are really seeing this variety they said we should be getting from every X-Book. New Mutants is fun, endearing, though knows when to get real when it matters. A well-rounded book that I would recommend as much as Marauders for the very same reasons. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - besottedgeek Feb 19, 2020

    NEW MUTANTS #7 was another fun entry into the Jonathan Hickman side of the series. Just when the story begins to loll Hickman injects some humor, often at the expense of comics tropes, to lighten the mood. Its a shame we cant get this team for every issue, but its worth checking out when we do. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Feb 20, 2020

    Though kind of oddball and madcap series compared to the rest of "Dawn of X," New Mutants #7 brings some new charm to the nostalgia of the original team. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 22, 2020

    Jonathan Hickman has a lot of fun breaking the fourth wall in this issue, and it makes for a short and sweet wrap-up to an already entertaining story. Read Full Review

    The Daily Fandom - Alex Smith-Petersen Feb 28, 2020

    New Mutants is going to be fairly different going forward at the very least. Ed Brisson is now the sole writer, and the two teams are being mashed together instead of being split. If nothing else, I'm interested to see the new direction coming out of this weird start. Hickman will continue writing the core X-Men series, as well as the Giant-Size one-shots, which function in their own unique way. Join me again next week as we enter Nova Roma! Read Full Review

    New Mutants continues to be a fun read that explores underused characters and makes them relevant. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Feb 20, 2020

    On the positive side, enough good things can't be said about Rod Reis'art. Reis has been doing wonderful work throughout this book and hecontinues that here. The few battle sequences we get contain morecharacterization than should be possible in a few panels, and hisdepiction of visually distinct characters like Xandra, Sunspot,Deathbird and Rahne are fantastic.
