    I've given up hope for a student-centered title these days. Not there isn't a need for one, but I don't see Marvel adding yet another book to their lineup anytime soon that focuses solely on the future of the mutant race's day to day. Wolverine and the X-Men, under Latour's guidance, may be the best I can hope for. This issue winds down the first arc and it is dense with development. Cut out the whole Phoenix Corporation nonsense and this would have been an excellent read. Mend the Schism, give us more Doop, and focus on these fascinating new students, and it still very well could be. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Watsonian Jun 20, 2014

    While this book seems to have a bit more focus on some of the teachers at the Jean Grey School of Higher Learning, it is expanding on Quentin Quire and Evan Sabahnur. Latour has written each in a way where we can easily see how they are important, and even implicit, in any future developments of mutankind. Initially we were led to believe we were heading toward an Apocolypse versus Phoenix throwdown, but the creative team wisely curbed those expectations. This issue is dense with development, emotion, and action, all while toying with notions we expect in an X-Men book. All respect to the excellent tales Bendis is crafting over in All-New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men, but Wolverine and the X-Men might be the best mutant book going at the moment. Read Full Review

    The cover of this one is a bit misleading, but Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar come through with the best issue of their run yet. Read Full Review

    The art and major plot points are all here to make this a great title. Yet, it constantly falls short with sub par side plots and pacing that just feels off. Read Full Review
