    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 29, 2020

    X-Men #10 is an event crossover that doesn't feel like an event crossover, and that's one of the many reasons it's so good. Hickman uses it to do a character study on Vulcan and pay off some clues he's sprinkled in the book about Vulcan. It all works really well, even Sway and Petra's shallow party girl attitudes. Yu's art is at its usual level of greatness, his eye for design, emotional storytelling, and detail, making the whole thing look amazing. X-Men #10 works even if someone has no idea what's happening in Empyre, and that's great. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Aug 1, 2020

    X-Men #10 didnt disappoint on its return. A Vulcan centric story is always welcome with me. Hickman is a master storyteller. If hes planting a seed, it will become relevant at some point. The art is gorgeous and will floor you as you flip through the pages. X-Men is a triumph in the comics community! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 29, 2020

    Vulcan is a character that has a shoddy past to be perfectly frank, but X-Men #10 does a lot to capture the humanity and complexity lying in wait inside of him. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Jul 29, 2020

    Hickman continues to add small pieces to a larger narrative, and Yu, and Gho create another solid visual experience. Even though readers have not seen a payoff, the stand alone stories of each chapter in Hickman's grand design remain worth reading. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Jul 30, 2020

    Hickman continues to shape this series and era into his own, but now showing a sense of closer belonging to the Marvel universe, hitting a palace that is rare to be found. Yu and Gho are just as exceptional on how they pull readers into this new world. Read Full Review

    Despite some distracting artistic shortcuts, it's still a stellar installment of the flagship "Dawn of X" title. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Jul 29, 2020

    For a long time X-fan finally wanting some Vulcan in their diet, you'll definitely get just that. However, it may come at the cost of a thoroughly explained story for Vulcan, the X-Men book, and Empyre. I left wanting to know more about Vulcan and less about the Empyre event that may need some pruning around the edges. Nevertheless, there were some interesting elements that Hickman slyly introduces that seem to relate Vulcan much more to the Cotati than we may expect. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 29, 2020

    At the end of the day, I think I might have to pass on anything X-Men related that has to do with Empyre. I wanted to get to the end of this issue and say that this might be worth sticking with if you aren't following the events of Empyre, but the sad truth is that it may not be. Read Full Review

    Overall this book is really only for those that want to ready everything to do with the Empyre event. Otherwise it’s a hard pass in my opinion. Read Full Review
