    This arc was not essential reading, but there were a few good moments, and the issue as a whole showed signs of marked improvement on all levels. If this line is renewed after Inferno, I won't be sorry. Read Full Review

    An expert balance of superheroics and the fun, business-mind of this series. This was an excellent new flavor of X-Men comic and I think X-Corp succeeded at what it set out to do. Read Full Review

    Tini Howard's eclectic group is just so different from other teams, and when Howard runs with characters like Mastermind, Selene, Madrox, or Trinary the book feels fresh and distinct from the other X-books. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 22, 2021

    X-Corp #5 gets all-action, but it has the same problems as every other issue of this book so far. Howard does a good job with the Fenris Twins and the structure and pacing of the chapter, but other than that, everything else in this issue falls flat. Foches art is okay, although some panels arent exactly great. X-Corp #5 is a change of pace, but its still stuck in the same race. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Sep 26, 2021

    This is not for the uninitiated. The reader is thrown into a situation with a roster of character that we barely heard of whose main conflict is that they have been placed on opposing side boundaries by a thin grey line defined by money. Read Full Review
