    As "X-Men Disassembled" rockets toward its conclusion, the insanity shows no signs of slowing down--and that's a good thing! Read Full Review

    Back on track at last with some pretty demonstrative points raised and a return to what the X-Men are all about. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 2, 2019

    Uncanny X-Men #8 takes all the promise of the last issue and runs with it, giving readers a satisfying and intriguing chapter in this story. The last two issues have improved things immensely, making this story relevant again. The twist ending here is great, giving the heroes a seemingly insurmountable obstacle to overcome. Theres only two more parts left to this story, but if they can match whats been in this and the last issue, this story will have redeemed itself nicely. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 2, 2019

    The issue does a good job of moving the story forward and raising the stakes. I liked the way it progressed, but there were elements that seemed a little too formulaic. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 2, 2019

    The issue is an improvement over last issue's side quest and it gets the event back on track. Again, this is a prime example of having to judge the individual issue as well as the arc it's a part of of. It lifts the previous issue and itself stands out as an action focused chapter of the event. Uncanny X-Men #8 feels like old-school X-Men and ups the excitement for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Jan 2, 2019

    Only two issues remain in this 10 part epic, so now is the moment to catch up if ever. The ending should be cataclysmic to say the least. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jacob Hill Jan 4, 2019

    A busy issue lacks stakes, except ironically when the action moves to a pocket dimension facsimile of an alternate timeline that really only exists within a single character's mind. Read Full Review

    Uncanny X-Men is a whirling, swirling mess of characters and plot lines and madness. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Jan 2, 2019

    It's another case of "Disassembled" remixing old X-Men ideas rather than offering much new, but it is solidly crafted at least. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Jan 4, 2019

    Overall, while I'm not the biggest X-Men (or X-Man) fan out there, I cant imagine this is what true X-Men fans wanted when they heard Uncanny X-Men was coming back.  While R.B. Silva and crew do a great job at keeping up their end of the bargain on art duties, I think the combination of three writers on one story has led to a bland generic connect the dots X-Men story that I didn't anticipate this early in the titles reemergence, and frankly just continues to be not that exciting.

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jan 2, 2019

    At this point now unless you are a hardcore X-Men fan and were going to read the series no matter what, there really isn't any reason to invest in this unfortunate lackluster series. This story is failing and it really breaks this x-geeks heart. Read Full Review
