    ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN has gone through some ridiculous changes, since the start of the series. This book takes big risks with every story line, and they've all worked thus far. I love seeing a comic take these kind of risks to change everything about the book, something you won't see in a 616 book, without it going back to "normal" eventually. The idea of Utopia is very cool, and I like seeing Kitty in a leadership role as she tries to unite her people with the rest of the country.While this is not a good place for new readers to jump on, I highly recommend checking out this series and getting caught up. It's the most interesting of all the Ultimate Comics books on the shelves, which says a lot because ULTIMATES and ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN are fantastic books on their own. Read Full Review

    I don't know how long the co-writing situation is intended to last on this series. Given that Edmondson's name is absent from the cover, it may have simply been a last-minute decision. The book is going through a bit of a rocky patch right now, and I don't think that reducing Wood's distinct voice is the answer. Read Full Review

    As you might have noticed this hasn't been my favourite issue. In fact I'm very disappointed with it, this series has been really exciting and I've been lauding it for it's return to the tone of the original Ultimate series'. It's apparent to me that Brian Wood didn't fully script this issue, he may have only plotted it, I'm not sure, but the comic really suffered as a result and a less than impressive visual presentation by the art team leave this comic, as well as the mutants contained within it, on the verge of a wasteland.

    It's disappointing to see Brian Wood's normally excellent work on "Ultimate Comics X-Men" go astray with a crew of additional creators helping out. What this book needs is a clear artistic vision to match the clear writing Wood has given the book. Certainly what we have here, which is less Brian Wood, is not a good solution. Read Full Review
