    COMICON - Scott Redmond Dec 23, 2022

    ‘Sabretooth And The Exiles' is arguably the best book being published in the X-Line as it fully explores not just what Krakoa means overall but tackles so many realistic pressing issues through the lens of the X-Men metaphor. It's a powerful series that resonates because it doesn't shy away from the darkness of the world, shining a light right in the face of that darkness. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 8, 2023

    Sabretooth And The Exiles #2 is excellent. It keeps up a lively tone, with the right mixture of fun, excitement, and danger. The cliffhanger ending is wonderful. LaValle, Kirk, Beredo, and Petit are doing terrific work. Read Full Review

    A strong development of the stellar foundation laid last issue, the second issue of Sabretooth & the Exiles puts in the work to better realize the dangers at hand. Furthermore, it develops the bond between Oya and Nekra's rising star, which is a rare relationship even within the X-Men franchise. While unable to provide good character moments to the whole cast, the insights we do get carry the development of the whole team forward. Read Full Review

    Something interesting about Victor LaValle's take on Sabretooth is that Victor Creed is not unintelligent. It makes sense. Read Full Review

    Sabretooth & the Exiles #2 replays the same plot from issue #1 but rearranges the placement of the characters for a serviceable entry in the series. The art is fantastic, and a peek into the nature of Orphan-Maker's true power is intriguing, but this series isn't bringing anything new to the Krakoan Era. Read Full Review

    This has nothing to do with the comic, as I don't have a ton to say about the comic. The comic is good, you should be reading it, especially if you liked Hellions. But there's a data page in this issue that talks about the history of the birth control pill. (Something this series, and its predecessor, does is tie the plot to historical instances, usually through a left-leaning lens. Which is totally cool with me. Thumbs up.) This page somewhat implies that the modern day birth control pill is free of the hormonal side effects that plagued the early trials of the drug. This isn't true. As someone who knows at least, like, three women, it's apparent that birth control pills still majorly fuck with the hormones of women. Not that I'm anti-birt more

    Sabretooth & The Exiles feels very much like Hellions which I liked. LaValle writes nice team dynamic which is kinda similar to Wells' book but still manages to be somewhat fresh and interesting. The art is a little bit rough for my taste.

    The story marches forward at a brisk pace. The script features tight cross-cuts and some juicy dialogue. The bones of the art are great, though I'd like to see a little more detail on them. I feel similarly about the content; although the plot and character developments are good, they could dig deeper.

    Victor LaValle has read a lot about the dark side of medical history and he's eager to demonstrate that. I find it charming--for now--but I wouldn't blame a reader for disliking it.

    Again, the art still fine but the layout are boring. It feel like an adaptation of an arcade video game ( Marvel ultimate alliance style )
