What could possibly go wrong for X-23, on an already disastrous night? More dragons? Hellion and his bad mood? How about being kidnapped to another galaxy by The Collector?

    Comics Bulletin - Sara McDonald Dec 16, 2011

    The "Misadventures in Babysitting" arc has been full of twists and surprises from the beginning, and this issue continues to take unexpected turns, right up to the last page. If this enjoyable, well-written series has to end, at least it's going out on a good note. Read Full Review

    If you want to read one X-23 story arc before it is canceled early next year, make it Adventures in Babysitting. This is a feel good comic with likable characters. The story is totally unpredictable and you never know what will happen next. The scenes shared by Laura and Julian are definitely worth reading, and the book in general is just very pretty. If you want to read an X-23 story, pick up this issue and the one before it (#17) and dive right in. I highly recommend this story arc. Read Full Review

    Overall I wouldn't recommend this as a must read, although the writing was decent enough. Marvel lost an opportunity to use a multi-issue story arc to really fill readers in on who Laura is. Considering the company will be canceling series, and moving her to Avengers Academy series, this concern becomes even more important. In a multi-character story arc, it is very easy for characters to get lost. It would have been smart to use these last issues she has to completely tell us her story, leave readers wanting more, and thus following her into the Aveners Academy storyline. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Jim Middleton Dec 10, 2011

    It's a shame that Marvel has decided to cancel X-23. Despite my grumbling, I think we could use more superhero comics oriented to teen girls. Alas, I don't think this issue makes the best case for its continued publication. Read Full Review
