    I am really loving how this event is not leaving any body, or team, out of the war. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 24, 2019

    I had fun with this tie-in that focuses mainly on the teamwork and fighting ability of the X-Men. Cyclops doesn't quite have a maestro's leash on his team, but considering the lack of planning it's entertaining to see how they keep their heads above water. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 24, 2019

    The War of the Realms takes a fluctuating team of X-Men by surprise in this initial issue. The mutants bear up heroically under the strain, of course, and their fast-paced combat is visually impressive. The calculated removal of Dani Moonstar from the equation, though temporary, steals too much clarity and perhaps renders this issue more distant than its creators intended. Read Full Review

    The action beats generally work and the pacing is breakneck. But your mileage may vary in terms of how much you actually care about the larger event. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Apr 24, 2019

    Whether you decide to pick this up should be determined by how you feel about the regular run of Uncanny X-Men going on right now. This is more of a side story to that book than a tie-in to the War of the Realms in my opinion. It looks really good, but I just wonder why we needed an extra tie-in when this could have been dealt with in the main title. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Apr 26, 2019

    "War of the Realms: Uncanny X-Men" continues for two more issues. Aside from the hope that the series continues to explore Dani Moonstar's inner journey as both a mutant and Valkyrie, not much helps this book stand apart among other strong X-titles on the market. All in all, it's a completely skippable tie-in between release weeks of the flagship title. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Apr 24, 2019

    With so many titles on the shelves it is really difficult for me to see past this issue's flaws. I would definitely have been more interested in this story if it were contained within the main book. Read Full Review
