    Uncanny X-Men #3 is an excellent X-Men issue that balances meaningful dialogue, well-paced story, and spectacular action to give us the best possible mutant experience thanks to its talented team of artists and writers. Every page, panel, and speech bubble were efficiently used to give us a cinematic story. With seven more weekly issues to go, I'm looking forward to seeing how the story of Uncanny X-Men will develop. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Nov 28, 2018

    UNCANNY X-MEN #3 is a fun, well-paced read with quality art and quality writing. If you think the UNCANNY X-MEN relaunch is a little gimmicky, give this issue a try. You won't regret it. Thompson, Rosenberg, and Brisson are finally giving the X-Men the makeover they deserve. Read Full Review

    The plot finally gets going in some actually enjoyable ways, so Uncanny X-Men is getting better. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 28, 2018

    The issue is a pretty key one with the debut of four new versions of characters and if this is going where it seems it's all going, like “Age of Apocalypse” lead ups, this one will be a key issue that many will look to get. It's clear we're in the beginning stages of the next classic X-event and Disassembled is going to live up to the hype and then some. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 5, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men #3 ups the ante, ending the first third of this ten week story with two big reveals. The characterization is perfect, and the highlight of the whole thing. The art and coloring are mostly good, with a few noticeable deficiencies. The big reveal at the end should keep readers on the edge of their seats, though, and makes up for a lot. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Hassan Nov 28, 2018

    While this is another good issue of Uncanny X-Men, it's obviously a piece of a larger story that will be more impactful when read with the rest of the 10-part "X-Men Disassembled." Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Dec 1, 2018

    With all the hallmark drama of a well rounded epic X-Men adventure, the inclusion of a new iterations of familiar characters turning up at the door to threaten the X-Mens very existence has the tried and tested feel of a truly grand saga. Read Full Review

    UNCANNY X-MEN #3 could benefit from an occasional pumping of the breaks, but that doesn't keep it from being a fully loaded and exciting X-Men experience. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Paul Smerdon Dec 4, 2018

    Protecting a world that hates and fears them they are children of the atom, they are the X-men trying to preserve Charles Xavier's dream that humans and mutants can live in peace. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Nov 28, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men #3 covers a lot of plot-ground, but it does so at the expense of vivid characterization. While it's pretty and it's eventful, it lacks the engaging, sympathetic connection with the mutants that was so evident in previous issues. The result is a connective episode, a comic you power through in hopes of greater moments down the road. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Dec 3, 2018

    Seven issues remain in the current story arc with writers Brisson, Thompson, and Rosenberg working as a unit. Together, they have perfect execution in handling the voices, personalities, and dynamics of the extended X-family. The real balancing act between action, plot, and characterization is a heavy chore for any X-writer, but the trio does their best to keep the story fluid and moving forward. Read Full Review

    Uncanny X-Men's "Disassembled" arc is beginning to read a bit like an "and then"" improv exercise that got out of hand. Read Full Review

    The new Uncanny X-Men still fails to create a sense of excitement or a unique identity in its third chapter. Read Full Review
