SIEGE! The Sisterhood executes a massive raid on the Graymalkin Facility, taking their fight to the Uncanny X-Men, and you won't believe the ferocity. No one is safe! Everybody fights! But why? How? What do they want? And how long can violence at such an insane level last? Oh, about most of the issue. Rated T+ …$2

    If you can get past the whole art debacle, there's a fantastic issue of Uncanny X-Men underneath. I doubt the days of dial-a-storyline are behind us, but for now I'm enjoying Matt Fraction's calmer approach to storytelling this issue. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown May 18, 2009

    Luckily, Matt Fraction continues to write some of the snappiest dialogue Uncanny X-Men has ever seen. Also, the action is fun and exciting and it’s always great to see the X-Men work as a team. The issue ends with a few questions answered, while new ones are asked. It’s a great way to keep the readers coming back month to month. Read Full Review

    I'm having fun reading this comic every month, and though I don't know much about some of the characters and I don't know what's going to happen next, I'm eager to find out, even if Greg Land's art isn't my thing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Jim May 26, 2009

    Another disappointing issue. It did contain less wasted scenes and focused on the battle. I wonder if reprints of the old X-Men books would sell better than this? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis May 26, 2009

    Its easy to package boring stories with beautiful art. It makes the less palatable, palatable. But want to know something? Im growing tired of Greg lands work too. Marvel always assign him to series they dont feel would fly on their own. So he adds an extra boost that makes the reader feel like this is major stuff happening, when in fact, its as banal as the worst of the 1990s X-Men material. Is there any hope for the X-Men?

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace May 19, 2009

    This is a fairly forgettable issue that virtually ignores the only part of the book that I was still interested in -- the attempts of Beast and his team of scientists to research the original catalyst for mutation -- in favour of a bland fight sequence that doesn't carry any emotional weight for me due to my lack of history with the characters involved. I'm hoping that Fraction wraps up this particular storyline soon, because it's starting to turn me off an otherwise enjoyable run on the book. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny May 20, 2009

    I can't believe I spent so much time writing about such a bad comic. But hey, at least the series is consistent. Every time it looks to be turning a corner, a bad issue comes out so that they can climb back up and start all over again. The book isn't a total loss though, thanks to the ending and a few worthwhile panels, but it could have been a whole hell of a lot better. Read Full Review
