•  Nightcrawler must act fast to avoid catastrophe as the laws of Krakoa (and physics) are tested to their limits.
•  Also: a nice family bonding sesh with no violent repercussions.
•  Just kidding. This is Xavier vs. Legion in a boozed-up Tiki bar, with the sanity of mutantkind at stake.
Rated T+

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 14, 2021

    Way Of X #4 is just another example of how great this comic really is and makes it sad that its only getting another issue and a one-shot to finish the story. Spurrier and Quinn are firing on all cylinders in this issue, perfectly working in concert. Shout out to Tartaglias colors as well- Quinns pencils are great, but Tartaglias palette really makes the whole thing sing. Way Of X is next level among the X-books. Read Full Review

    This is a deep, interesting, philosophical work, rife with jokes, adventure, and a few near-fatal flaws. Read Full Review

    After the last two installments of the WAY OF X, it just feels like the series is spinning its wheels. Im struggling to see the end game. Before this series, fans could already see the hypocrisy, the evil, the corruption, and the twisted nature that was all over Krakoa. Heck, depending on your perspective, many would argue that the mutants could very well be the villains of this story. So, unless there is a driving purpose on the horizon, Im struggling to see the true intent and direction of the series. Read Full Review

    Way of X continues to provide an impressive balancing act that elevates minor characters, celebrates one X-Men's greatest characters, and considers the manifold complexities of the new mutant status quo in an era where many series aim to accomplish just one of those goals well. It seems all but certain that this all too brief series will become a definitive segment in Krakoan lore. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jul 13, 2021

    Final ThoughtsWay of X #4 is becoming a prime example of storytelling that poses thought-provoking discussion topics, but by not answering the questions in Nightcrawler's mind, the story is beginning to fall flat. The reader doesn't have to agree with the answer, but the main character eventually has to to make a choice about where he's going. Otherwise, the main character, much like this series, starts to go nowhere. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jul 14, 2021

    Overall Way of X continues to be an interesting series. I feel Legion's story is the stronger of the two. That being said this book also continues to highlight lesser known mutants and even just for that this is one you should definitely pick up. Read Full Review
