    Again, this was my favorite issue of the series so far. I'm really excited to see how Derek will fit in to this story down the road, and why these mutants are drawn to each other. It's also pretty nice to see Jeph Loeb's writing be all around enjoyable for once, instead of the C-List summer blockbuster in comic form. The majority of the Ultimate books are great, and I'd even say this is the second best of the lot. Read Full Review

    While my patience for the lack of an overarching plot is growing thin, I am still very pleased with how finely crafted Ultimate X is as a continual character study. Jeph Loeb is back in old form here once again with a compelling and engaging introduction to the newest member of the Ultimate X crew. When you add in the art by the everawesome Arthur Adams, you get an issue that is so good that you'll forget momentarily that you have no idea where this story is going. Read Full Review

    The story by Jeph Loeb is moving slow (it's the style, after all), but even with this issue's slight slip, it's still a story well worth following. So far. Read Full Review

    This is probably the best issue of "Ultimate X" to date; the art is gorgeous as always, and the writing is definitely improving. I've said it before and I'll say it again; if this is a side effect of not forcing the title onto a strict monthly schedule, well, more power to Marvel for agreeing to a timetable that works. The readers are definitely getting much more bang for their buck as a result. Read Full Review
