    Wow... You know, before I read this comic, I already had a rant in mind that I was going to unleash upon finishing this issue up. That's how sure I was that I was going to hate this issue. After finishing this comic though, I can gleefully say this was the best issue of Uncanny X-Men Matt has EVER written! Hell, this is the best x-comic I've read in YEARS! I'm actually feeling a little bit giddy! Read Full Review

    The last comment was a bit cutting, and perhaps a tad unjust, but following Terry Dodson’s classic superhero art style, Greg Land’s America’s Next Top Model style pose-a-thon just doesn’t pop – fierce, it ain’t! Read Full Review

    "Nation X" is off to a good start, and while Fraction's perpetually juggling a lot of stories in "Uncanny X-Men," it's not feeling out of hand. I'm curious to see just what Fraction will do with the X-Men's Utopia, and based on this first issue it will be fun to find out. If you're looking for a good jumping-on point, this is it.

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Sep 22, 2009

    The only thing that prevents me from awarding this issue a higher bullet-rating is the sense that it's very much an issue of setup for a new story arc, in which not a huge amount actually happens. That said, Fraction covers some pretty interesting topics, retrospectively reinforcing the "Utopia" crossover with his in-depth discussion of the book's new status quo -- and that final page is sure to make X-Men fans keen to read the next issue.

    Stop badgering me!) It's an interesting issue overall, with the most promising bits coming in discussion between Cyclops and Professor X and in the acclimation of Namor to the mutant side of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 24, 2009

    The story isn't the most exciting thing in the world, but Matt Fraction does some interesting things by approaching the story in ways that most writers wouldn't (I know I certainly wouldn't have though to address how Asteroid M would get fresh water). The problem is, and always will be as long as he is allowed to pretend to be an artist, Greg Land's poorly traced art. It's gotten to the point that Land isn't even thinking about what he is tracingcharacter's expressions rarely match what they are saying and he is using the same faces/poses over and over again. I'm not even sure why I bother anymore. Read Full Review
