    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Jun 16, 2021

    Planet-Sized X-Men #1 is an issue that delivers on it's namesake in all departments, be it writing, drawing, colors, or letters. In years to come when we as fans are talking about defining issues of the current era. This book will be one of those books we talk about. This is an essential installment if you are following the Krakoan era. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jun 16, 2021

    Overall Planet-Sized X-Men is a triumph and one of the best comics of the year. It's so fantastically crafted and packed with gorgeous art and colors. This definitely gives us a look at the bold new direction the mutants are heading in and I'm all in on this ride. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Jun 18, 2021

    The title is almost misleading in that the book should be called "Galactic X-Men," because this story is Marvel's mutants literally transcending earthly things and doing it in style for all of humanity to see. Duggan is bringing the big ideas of "doorstop sci-fi books" to superhero comics, and it's more than worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jun 16, 2021

    Planet-Size X-Men #1 more than lives up to its name, expanding the X-Men's reach into outer space and boasting a story and visuals worthy of a science-fiction blockbuster. With the creative team slated to take over the mainX-Men title this July, I can safely say that the merry mutants are in good hands. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 16, 2021

    Planet-Size X-Men takes things to the next level. It's an epic story that has huge implications for the future of the Marvel universe. It also in ways celebrates the past with numerous references to the history of the X-Men. If you thought House of X/Powers of X changed the status quo, this is up there on that level. This is one no X-fan should miss out on and shows the god-like power of the X-Men. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jun 16, 2021

    Yet, as intriguing as this issue was, I left feeling as though Ive seen this trick before. Plus, I wonder where this is all heading. How does this fit into the larger picture of Hickmans vision for this series? How does this affect the other storylines and plot threads involving Nimrod, Moira, Mystique, and so much more? Its as if we continue to get more questions without answering any of the prior inquiries. In the short term, PLANET-SIZE X-MEN #1 has certainly piqued my interest. However, the fireworks factory is looking farther and farther out of reach with INFERNO on the horizon. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God bless! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jun 19, 2021

    Planet Size X-Men is a very good book that will have a huge impact on the X-Men and how things are done in the very distant future. Gerry Duggan wrote an issue that feels right in line with how Jonathan Hickman has been doing things. The art paves the way for your eyes and makes every page a joy to look at. Planet Size X-Men won't disappoint. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 16, 2021

    Planet-Size X-Men #1 is a great read. Duggan and Larraz give readers a breathtaking look at the re-creation of a biosphere, and its a move that looks to have massive repercussions on human-mutant relations in the future. That said, its a little too convenient for the plot and actually one of the least intelligent moves Krakoa could make. All in all, its a good comic. Read Full Review

    Planet-Size X-Men may primarily be spectacle, but it is an impressive spectacle and one that will leave hungry X-Men readers even more eager to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Jun 16, 2021

    Armed with the same art team as House of X #1, Planet-Sized X-Men #1 is a turning point comic, a book that seeks to (and largely succeeds at) launching the next chapter for the Krakoa era. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 18, 2021

    Gerry Duggan and Pepe Larraz set out to make a statement with Planet-Size X-Men #1 and they did just that. All of the Omega-Level mutants in the X-Men franchise uniting to make Mars into a livable planet like Earth was incredible to watch. Adding in the ongoing politics for Krakoa and tying that into Magneto to turn Mars into Planet Arakko created greater depth to the story taking place. Putting all this together makes this a can't miss comic book for X-Men fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jun 19, 2021

    If you are reading the various X- books, then this may well be a killer issue for you. For the rest of us; it's a complicated mess of storylines that fail to conclude and are further extended, almost past the point of me not caring. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Jun 17, 2021

    This highly anticipated issue is a sweeping epic that sets up hundreds of stories to come for the X-Men and the Marvel Universe as a whole. However, it's missing a personal, human touch that could really push it into territory from good to great. Read Full Review
