    Newsarama - George Marston Feb 1, 2012

    It's a thrill to read, not just because the adventure that's taking place is as elemental as an X-Men story can be, but because it's great to see creators actually improving and honing their craft rather than getting lazy and complacent with their success. There's a lot to be taken away from Uncanny X-Men, not just for readers, but for creators as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Feb 1, 2012

    I really did enjoy the issue, but I'm more interested than anything else in where this story is going and how it will end. The first issue of the arc has an incredible start, and this issue is a bit more back story than anything else, but it's done very well. There was a printing error in my copy which really confused me, and I'm not a fan of the Colossus/Juggernaut smash-up, but other than that, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Feb 1, 2012

    Greg Land's layouts sync excellently with Gillen's script to deliver eye-popping visuals on the narration beats. Helmet-maneuver aside, the fight between Magneto and super robot could have been more interesting than just a few missile deflections, but the battle ends on a great unexpected image. More than anything, Land has done a great job of showing the X-Men using their powers in creative ways that make the art as intriguing as Gillen's story. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 1, 2012

    "Uncanny X-Men" #6 is a good book, but I must admit that I'm more interested in the fine details that Gillen is sprinkling throughout Tabula Rasa; he's clearly intrigued by the idea, and it's nice to see him doing something interesting with it. Like so many middle portions of a comic, though, I think it's the end point for this storyline where things will have the potential to go from good to great. I look forward to seeing just where "Uncanny X-Men" goes with Tabula Rasa and the Immortal Man; there's enough setup here that it feels promising. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - Adam C Feb 5, 2012

    Overall the issue was not bad, but suffered from 'middle-arc syndrome'. Hopefully Gillen and Land have an epic conclusion in store, giving us a much needed 'X-Men story' before the filler issues and the Avengers vs. X-Men tie in issues. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Feb 3, 2012

    We get more answers about the origin of Tabula Rasa and its inhabitants and Magneto uses his helmet in a very unique way. Is Psylocke smiling on the cover? A good issue from the writing and pencilling team of Kieron Gillen (Siege : Thor) and Greg Land (Uncanny X-Men : Quarantine). From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review
