    Wood tells his story in a series of vignettes that each help to sculpt the political and social nature of Utopia, a place which becomes more and more like its namesake with each passing issue. The X-Men have become rulers of their own nation, and it feels more authentic than it ever did in the main Marvel Universe and their island version of Utopia. The lax limitations of the Ultimate Universe free its stories from continuity, the bindings of too many crossovers, and the status quo changes of other writers -- and Ultimate Comics X-Men is all the better for it.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Mar 19, 2013

    I've bitten chunks out of this title before, and I still stand by those complaints " it was bloated in concept and sluggish in execution. This issue is none of those things. Utopia's finally come alive (in more ways than one) and the results are uniformly positive. There may be no official relaunch in sight but this issue feels like Wood started over mid-series"and this time he's nailed it. Read Full Review

    There's no doubt that Wood and Asrar make a great team. I'd love to see them longer term on this book (as I understand it Asrar cannot stay indefinitely) but as it is, I'll enjoy them while I've got them! Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Mar 15, 2013

    For a superhero comic without any superhero-ing going on this book is amazing. Really for any book at all this is pretty great. There's so much character drama along with the growth and development that you rarely really miss the big battles and super villain attacks. Read Full Review

    Pencils for this issue are provided by Mahmud Asrar, who benefits from having series inker, Juan Vlasco and the always phenomenal Jordie Bellaire on board, but even those two aren't able to elevate this comic into the realm of “impressive”. Asrar's pencil work is entirely too average for this book. There is a lack of detail to a large number of panels, some inconsistencies with bodies and faces, and the angles become repetitive. There isn't anything here that we haven't seen before in a store full of comics, and there are simply too many other books with amazing art that are out this week that make this issue of Ultimate Comics X-Men memorable for its story only. This has not been the best outing for this series but hang in there because better things are on the horizon. Read Full Review
