    Depressing is the only word I can come up with when I think of how hard it is to follow Uncanny X-Men. Rarely does it feel like I just read a big pile crap, but it NEVER feels like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. This issue proved there is in fact a light at the end of this dreary tunnel. X-Men has always been one of the more mature books for Marvel (Well not always but you know what I am saying) and lately this has not exactly been the case. It feels like it has grabbed more at the childish roots once again. I am not talking about X-Men Legacy or Astonishing but the others, especially Wolverine and The X-Men has nearly lost all the grit it had going for it. Going through and reading Uncanny X-Men the first time and reading it twice was unheard of. But then I read it a third time... Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Aug 14, 2013

    Its a matter of quality over quantity at a certain point, and while this book may not be the lengthiest read in single-issue form, its absolutely gorgeous to behold and experience. This is an issue that I practically lost myself in, which is why it was so jarring when it was suddenly over, but its one of the most immaculately paced of the week, so its little surprising when it abruptly ends. The experience is well worth it, though, and I am on the edge of my seat for the next issue. Read Full Review

    "Uncanny X-Men" continues to impress and subvert expectations each month. Every issue is consistently smart and beautiful, while pushing a consistent and intriguing agenda. This book feels like it's going places, and while time will tell if everyone on board can ultimately deliver "the place," I'm totally enjoying the ride. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Aug 15, 2013

    The art style of Frazer Irving is what I come to prefer most with this book because it somehow it just fits the story most. That is aside from the color work he does and he has one of the most amazing senses of design and storytelling I've ever come across. Read Full Review

    So yes we had a lot going on and a lot being setup for the next set of issues. I wonder how much of this we'll really be able to dig into before ‘Battle of the Atom', or how Eva Bell's powers may be involved in the next big X-Men crossover event. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 12, 2013

    This was an amazing issue, being one of the better issues that this series has produced. It had some fun, and exciting moments, with brilliant drama, and suspense, as well as great dialogue. It was however very fast paced, not taking long to finish, which questions whether it's worth $3.99. I would however still recommend this issue, as besides that it was very fun, and should appeal to both new readers, and old. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - MJ Feuerborn Aug 16, 2013

    There has been much speculation about the direction of this book, and while its intended future remains uncertain, readers can be assured wherever it goes, it won't rest on Scott Summers's shoulders alone, but on everyone's shoulders, from S.H.I.E.L.D., to the public, to the team that's struggling to find its footing inbetween.

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Aug 15, 2013

    This issue's well-paced, but there are a lot of big panels and splash pages, so it reads very, very quickly, particularly for a book with a $3.99 price tag.But I really enjoyed this it. The interactions between the characters were especially great. Read Full Review

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek Aug 19, 2013

    This book is getting pretty intense, and with the major shifts in tone, it's getting a lot more interesting. The art is as off-putting as ever, and with the density of the story, it's not fitting at all. Cyclops is really moving into major villain mode, and while he's not a genocidal maniac like most, he's still one of the most dangerous villains to emerge in some time. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 14, 2013

    Frazer Irving does another great job here. The backgrounds always make the characters pop and I'm loving his rendition of Magneto. He's looking old, war-torn and very tired. So often in the last decade Magneto has had that long hair model look which doesn't make any sense. Here he's almost like a war veteran. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Aug 14, 2013

    The choice to use Frazer Irving as an alternate to Chris Bachalo is an interesting one. On All-New X-Men, David Marquez's style falls right in line with Stuart Immonen's, so the switch-up is negligible. However, Bachalo's style is completely his own, so there will never be anyone who can maintain the visual integrity of the series. Irving certainly is a capable artist, and here he shows how he specializes in the more abstract moments -- Magneto's aforementioned flashback, Cyclops and company's dramatic entrance -- yet it feels like a completely different book when he takes over.

    Issue #10 isn't a total loss, and there are some really good moments. It raises expectations for the next issue, and the plot threads may weave into a stronger tapestry over time. We've gotten our fill learning about the characters, poring over their powers, and understanding the ramifications of Cyclops' actions. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 21, 2013

    Action picks up with the X-Men make an impromptu appearance at a pro-mutant rally to promote a message of peace only to get attacked by the first of a new version of Sentinel bred for their destruction. The attack by the Sentinel, on the peaceful demonstration certainly makes me wonder just who is behind the new mutant killers and what their ultimate agenda really is. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Aug 19, 2013

    Mostly,Uncanny X-Men #10truly brings home the idea that Cyclops is just a dick. Scott's ego got big when he became a symbol of mutant oppression. Whether he earned the label or not, he's hammed it up on more than one occasion like he's the true mutant leader. This month, media outlets are reporting a massive protest in support of Cyclops and his more aggressive agenda. Without thinking twice, he whisks his new students directly into the public eye which ends up not being the public eye at all, but rather a trap set to catch the egomaniacal Cyclops. It's obviously a trap. It's so damn obvious you want to smack Cyclops and tell him to get his thumb out of his butt and stop being a whiny little jerk. Read Full Review

    Player Effort - Adedayo Olomodosi Aug 21, 2013

    Uncanny X-Men is a good series but it's dipping its feet into mediocrity.Every time I read an issue of it, I feel like I'm only getting a glimpse of 5 minutes of the team's life in 20-something odd pages. This format works for some issues but it has gotten old and annoying. It's time that series focuses on being about a team. As it's the flagship X-Men title, it doesn't have to be the best one but, it should be good and luckily it has the potential to be just that. Read Full Review

    With a bigger focus on plot this could be more interesting. Until then readers will simply have to enjoy fairly well written character centric stories. Those who are die hard fans of the character or property should not be disappointed by this installment of the series. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Aug 18, 2013

    Uncanny X-Men is a book that deserves its followers, but I can't recommend it to everyone. Bendis needs to stop short-changing plot threads for his mutant revolution story, or be bold enough to commit to it completely. As of now, the greatness of this title is too watered down.
