    The writing kicks major butt in this issue, but so does the art. Jorge Molina nails it. His crispy, clean style showcases the heart and emotion of this story perfectly. That's right: perfectly. There are glimpses of action throughout the book, but the best bits take place at a school dance. A school dance that Lockheed deejays. It's amazing stuff. When you see a little character's heart break, Molina makes sure your heart breaks along with him. If you like comic books, you owe it to yourself to check out Wolverine and the X-Men.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - vibraniumspork Oct 16, 2012

    A book with a large cast full of relative unknowns that still offers a welcoming face to newcomers; that still maintains its own distinct voice when pulled into a crossover event, and finds something new to add into the bargain; that has me chuckling at a Shi'ar one moment and welling up for a Brood in the next. X-book or no, Wolverine and the X-Men is just great comics, and this issue is sure to please the regular reader as much as the passer-by. After this issue, I'm pleased to say that I'll soon consider myself more of the former rather than the latter. Read Full Review

    This book has been so smooth and entertaining, with only the ‘AvX' crossover disrupting it. And while that has resulted in less fluidity from issue to issue, the book has never failed to entertain, taking on a more “one and done” format for these past few months, delivering stand-alone tales each chapter. This book always delights! Read Full Review

    But hopefully they'll get a few issues in before the next event comes along and disrupts things. Read Full Review

    Despite the problem with the pacing, this issue has almost everything that makes this series as good as it has been, and continues to be. Aaron's character work continues to be strong, and it seems like he finally managed to work out how to balance the Avengers Vs. X-Men crossover with the Jean Grey School's continuing story in this final issue. It may be a case of working it too late, but this issue is great, and with the crossover behind us, we can expect issues of this quality for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    I still like the students and especially the villains, and Aaron's cliffhanger will make you worry in spite of yourself, but I'll be glad to see AvX in the rear-view mirror, and let this book get back to its own path. Read Full Review
