    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 17, 2019

    Salvador Larroca and David Messina go above and beyond with the art in this issue. All of the characters look amazing. The action is great and the last few pages blew me away visually. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 17, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #22 caps off Rosenbergs run and wipes the slate clean for Hickman to come in and work his magic. Rosenberg has used his 12 issues to let readers into Cyclops head and hes done a great job. Things have gotten a little dark but it all fit the story he was trying to tell. The only weakness of his run has been the tired mutants are in danger of extinction trope that has been Marvels go to mutant story since the end of House Of M, but hes made it work rather well. Laroccas art in this issue is some of the best hes turned in on the book and really strengthened the story Rosenberg was telling. Messinas art feels out of place taking over for him, but it is still good. All in all, this issue worked. There were a few little things that could have been better, but overall, this one is an action packed roller coaster. Read Full Review

    Well that is it, the closing issue on the Uncanny run of 2018-2019. Was glad that we did get deaths at the end of the series, could actually feel the risks after each issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Jul 24, 2019

    A bit of a mixed bag of a finale. Some disturbing elements with very contradictory consequences. To say its been a challenge is putting it mildly. But for those who dont like it easy its been a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 18, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #22 could have ended on a much better note. I wish I could have loved it till the bitter end, but sometimes this is what you sign up for with the X-Men books. Some story decisions you will love, others will leave you asking why. Here's to hoping that Marvel has figured out what they want to do with these characters in their next chapter. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart Jul 26, 2019

    It's a wrap on Matthew Rosenberg's Uncanny run with this week's Uncanny X-Men #22, and as with the run as a whole the issue aims high and falls short. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 30, 2019

    The issue, like the series, has it's up and down moments. Although I'm hardly his biggest fan, Havok likely deserved better (along with many mutants who met their end over the course of the series). Ending with a stronger united team deciding hatred and bigotry are better than hiding and anonymity, the X-Men appear ready to write their next chapter. For fans. Read Full Review

    Matthew Rosenberg's run on X-Men started off feeling fresh, focused, and energetic. As it's continued on it's grown a bit unwieldy, and that feeling is present in this final issue as well. Read Full Review
