It all ends here. This is forever! As Cyclops' cleanup mission nears its close, all the problems the X-Men face come together. The truth behind the Hellfire Club's intentions, the culmination of the O.N.E.'s assaults on mutantkind and even the inner struggles within the team... It all ends here. This is forever.

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jul 6, 2019

    While the story by Matthew Rosenberg was good, what really blew me away was the art by Salvador Larroca and Guru-eFX. Some panels appeared to have been drawn to be cover art, instead of just pages in the comic. Color me impressed. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 3, 2019

    They didn't lie, it all did end here. To say this is forever? That is hard to believe until we get to that next issue of Uncanny X-Men. Till then, it was a treat to see just what lengths these mutants will go in order to protect their place in this world. They took a gamble, it was one they probably would have never took in the past, but it got the desired result despite the losses taken too. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 3, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #21 is a fun read for such a dark comic. Rosenberg has shown a proficiency for heavily plotted comics in his run so far and does it again in this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Jul 5, 2019

    The end is in sight and I for one am enjoying the car crash. Whatever he has planned I am in it until the bitter end. Buckle up kids, we are in for a bumpy ride. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 3, 2019

    While not perfect, the comic is a fun addition to the current run. It continues to really shake things up and throw in a lot while dealing with lingering stories. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathaniel Muir Jul 3, 2019

    Storylines are leading to a payoff. Emma Frost looks better than she has in a long time and is the star of the issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Jul 9, 2019

    If you thought the first 20 issues of the Uncanny relaunch were packed with revelations and reversals, then this issue will hit you hard. Series regular artist Larocca returns with those classic X-Men designs and dynamic, yet clear and well-packed panels and splash pages. The art pushes the desperation of the X-Men to the fore without shying away from the violence and stakes at hand. As Rosenberg draws nearer to the finale on his X-Men run, only time will tell how this run fits in mutant canon as incoming writer Jonathan prepares a full-line refresh in July. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Jul 5, 2019

    In an attempt to make this volume as incredible as it can be, the creative team comes up short on something that matters a lot... making its audience believe and care for the characters going through the motions. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - waltgator Jul 3, 2019

    Well it is the penultimate issue and let's start off with the negatives. Last half of the issue seems a bit rushed and somethings happened that just happened. Nothing to build up to something things in the issue that seemed to be a big thing. But now the positives. It seems like the stakes are going up an extra few notches for next issue. That is one thing the book hasn't done, maybe since X-man first arrived on scene in the beginning of this run. The art wasn't bad but wasn't so great. Read Full Review

    It feels like this run, which started strong, is running out of gas before the end. Read Full Review
