Who will save the X-Men from the Hellfire Cult? It's not Wolverine. It's not Cyclops. But it better be someone because they're a minute from death. And who is that mysterious red-head?

    I used to stay away from the X-books due to confusion and fear of their long continuity. I only recently picked up Uncanny X-Men, yet Brubaker, Fraction, and Land have managed to really capture my interest and have crafted an accessible book. This issue alone has its flaws, but the overall arc, especially the revelation on the last page, is enthralling. Read Full Review

    The bottom line is that "Uncanny X-Men" hasn't been this good in years, and as an antidote to the Skrull-heavy Marvel mainstream, it's worth your time. Read Full Review

    Bru and Fraction's Uncanny X-Men hasn't won me over quite yet. For every nice development, there are about three or four parts that come up short in each issue. The crazy lack of commitment to one solid concept could be that the writers are laying a foundation for later stories, but it's a bit off-putting. I haven't thrown in the towel with this book by any means, I'm just slightly confused at the angle the creators have taken with it. Read Full Review

    Uncanny X-Men #503 was a poor read. Seriously, do not waste your money on this title. Just because a comic book is published by Marvel and is a flagship title does not mean that it is well done. There are so many other titles currently on the market, and many of them by independent presses, that are a much more professional and polished product than what Brubaker and Fraction give us on Uncanny X-Men. I would only recommend getting Uncanny X-Men #503 if you are a huge fan of Matt Fraction. Read Full Review
