    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Jun 23, 2021

    Way of X #3 presents us with the complex reality of Krakoa. Having Nightcrawler as our point of view character and observing society is engaging and exciting. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Canham Jun 23, 2021

    Way of X #3 presents a complex, thought-provoking discourse on sex and reproduction. Through characters of wonderful depth and complexity, the issue gains heart and compassion. Maybe the best of the great 'Way of X' series so far. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Jun 23, 2021

    This was another solid issue in the series that is quickly becoming the best that the Krakoan-era has to offer. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 26, 2021

    Way of X is full of great character moments and a full, enjoyable understanding of everyone and everything happening on Krakoa. This is a very fulfilling comic, and this was a really fun and meaningful issue. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 23, 2021

    Quinn delivers some great art throughout this issue. There is a focus on character that allows the art to feel intimate to the reader. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jun 23, 2021

    Overall, WAY OF X #3 was deeper and more thought-provoking even with its Christian undertones. Yet, it still lacks substance towards the overall development of the story. I left the issue wondering what readers really garnered from the issue. That said, WAY OF X wasnt bad by any stretch. Still, anyone searching for plot development and direction may come up a bit short. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 23, 2021

    Way of X #3 takes an interesting approach with the Hellfire Gala in that it barely even shows it. Spurrier knows he has to do something with it, but he uses it as set dressing for the story he's trying to tell in this book, which was the right thing to do. It all works out very well, and this book is a pretty good read. Quinn's art is solid but not great, and it works well enough. This is almost like the anti-crossover crossover issue, and it's fun for that reason. Read Full Review

    Way of X is challenging and inventive and entertaining, which is an excellent trifecta for any series to achieve, especially one with this much territory to cover. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jun 28, 2021

    Way of X #3 takes a soft right turn away from the Onslaught problem to explore the politics of sex and reproduction. While interesting (and occasionally amusing) in isolation, this issue feels more like an aside from the imminent threat building since the first issue. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Jun 29, 2021

    Spurrier, unfortunately, writes Kurt Wagner " one of the most sexually open and understanding characters in X-canon " with extremely puritanical attitudes about sex and intimacy. It's so far out of character, especially for the elf who has multiple times been shown on panel wearing nothing but a stuffed animal version of himself. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Jun 28, 2021

    This issue is a huge step back for the series, but that doesn't mean that it's all downhill from here. Spurrier owes Nightcrawler some answers and even redemption, but if anyone can fix this series, it is him. Read Full Review
