    All of that character development in the past few issues is paying off, and there's momentum here. Wood has taken the less traveled course, and of all the X-Books this month, this one gets the award for best action and cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jan 22, 2014

    Theres so much to love about this comic, that the few flaws are, by no means, dealbreakers. This is actually a surprisingly original and unique idea for a storyline using a great many underappreciated, underrepresented characters, giving the book its own distinct feel despite being still another X-Men title. Standing out for so many reasons in such a deep, wide field is admirable enough, but standing out while telling a story this interesting and new deserves very special mention and these visuals are still as easy on the eyes as they ever were, while containing enough strength to practically burst through the panels.

    John Sublime, who has apparently been sleeping with self-destructive Rachel, is connected to Arkea, but it's pretty weird when he's the sympathetic one (as he too is an anti-mutant virus masquerading as a man). This is just one chapter in the ongoing saga of the distaff X-team, and I can't say I'm on top of all the multi-layered plot threads or how Arkea manages to wake up a submerge cadre of Sentinels by issue's end. But it's the X-men: I don't have to understand it all. They just have to be badass, and look great as they're fighting the latest anti-mutant threat. Mission accomplished. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sam Roche Jan 22, 2014

    Not particularly. It's just too confusing a narrative to get invested in any of the characters, especially when they are so alike. The first two issues of this storyline were so strong that I'll stick around, but if I don't like how they end it, X-Men may be next on the chopping block. Read Full Review
