    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 20, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #14 is a plot-heavy chapter but is able to squeeze a lot in and not feel bloated or boring. Rosenberg knows when to cut around, giving all of these plot threads an excellent sense of momentum that keeps things moving while still setting things up for the future. Larocca's art looks great, but his action scenes could use more fluidity and a feeling of movement. All in all, this issue continues the streak of quality this book has been on since X-Men Disassembled ended and maintains it's pitch-perfect rehabilitation of Scott Summers. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Apr 1, 2019

    Some resoundingly satisfying payback against enemies of the past. As well as touching base with familiar faces and resolving some old issues. Not even one single complaint here. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 20, 2019

    The team has been killing it with recent issues and this is an example of that. The X-Men are back to desperation and feel like they're fighting an uphill battle, like they should. They're no longer over powered to the point they have a mutant for every solution and now have a vision as to where they should be going with clear goals and something of a plan. This is the beginning of something that feels great and after a long time with some detours, the X-Men are back to greatness. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Mar 20, 2019

    Larroca provides stellar artwork and Matthew Rosenberg writes the team with a sense of camaraderie the infuses each scene with joy. The issue ends with the team toasting to small victories, and that's an apt reaction to this issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Mar 24, 2019

    Uncanny continues to right the sloppy wrongs of the past few years of directionless X-Men stories. If Cyclops' hit list is any indication, then at least the next six months of X-Men stories should be something all new, all different, and definitely exciting. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 23, 2019

    With a clear, confident vision for what "This Is Forever" is supposed to be Matthew Rosenberg crafted the best issue of this Uncanny X-Men relaunch. Both the pacing and character work were on point throughout Uncanny X-Men #14. If you are an X-Men fan I highly recommend picking up this Uncanny X-Men story arc. It is a good starting point for both new and older readers. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Mar 20, 2019

    Even if you aren't totally sold on this book, the confrontation in its closing pages is one that many X-fans have been waiting for, and like any good cliffhanger, it's a powder keg of potential. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Mar 20, 2019

    Rosenberg and Larroca struggle to deliver an entertaining and comprehensive story in UNCANNY X-MEN #14. The timeline of the issue is too complex and disjointed for readers to easily grasp -- even though everything that happens in UNCANNY X-MEN #14 is fairly basic stuff. UNCANNY X-MEN is looking more and more like a filler series made to keep Cyclops in the spotlight while the other X-Men endure the Age of X-Man. In order to reorient this series, Rosenberg needs to give the current arc a stronger goal that will keep the storyline and the characters on a more definitive track. Read Full Review
