    Without a doubt Uncanny X-Men is the X-book to read. No other book in the lineup comes close to matching the quality so far. Cullen Bunn is writing so many of these characters so well that they all become your favorites. The art team has been the best in the X-line so far and it doesnt look like any other group will be beating them anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Excellent pacing and fight sequence, but lacking somewhat in developing much of the cast. Read Full Review

    So again, we have another solid installment of a (so far) solid X-series. This longtime X-fan is enjoying it for the most part, and looking forward to seeing where it goes. Read Full Review

    May have its minor flaws, but it definitely earns to be called an X-Men book and is, among Marvel's current ongoing X-titles, one of the most promising. Read Full Review

    While the idea of the new team of Uncanny X-Men is still promising, and they are continuing to add characters into the mix with this issue, the series on the whole doesn't seem to be much of a team, or very "uncanny" at all. Hopefully, the story will find its footing with the next few issues as this first story arc will start to wrap up. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Troy Powell Feb 6, 2016

    All things considered It seems I have adjusted somewhat to Lands art, either that or this particular issue wasnt as overtly offensive as issues past. I found it less noxious as a result. There were some nice touches that I feel wereworthy of note, I loved the neat effects that Magneto and Psylocke had while using their powers. The Butterfly telepathic effect is a time honoured effect but its use typically depends on the whims of the artist. In this issue Magnetos gauntlets and boots had some glowing details that were really cool and made him feel more menacing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 4, 2016

    Each new chapter of this series sees Cullen Bunn making better use of the mutant team he's assembled. This issue in particular is a strong showcase for Magneto and what drives the troubled mutant leader in this era of public hysteria, Terrigen clouds and mutant massacres. Bunn also takes the chance to add several more players to the board here, all of whom help spice up the book a little more. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Feb 24, 2016

    The greatest sin of Uncanny X-Men #3 is not the changing level of attention to artwork, but that it provides an untenable level of sameness. Characters and individual scenes reflect one another and what has already been established. There is no sense of forward momentum or call to continue reading for fear that this track will continue to skip on the record player. It's possible the song will move forward, but even if it does that doesn't make it likely to change its all too familiar tune. Read Full Review
