    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Aug 26, 2020

    X-Men #11 gives readers a sight they haven't seen in a long time- Magneto cutting through his foes like a hot knife through butter, and it's glorious. Hickman and Yu work together perfectly to give readers a treat they haven't had since Magneto joined the X-Men way back in the Utopia days and capture the force of nature that is Magneto. X-Men #11 is as close to perfect as one can get. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 26, 2020

    I picked up this issue of X-Men expecting to be let down. Yet somehow I walked away from this satisfied in ways I did not think possible for a tie-in to Empyre of all stories. This creative team made this story their own, and the best takeaway was knowing that Krakoa is more prepared than any other attempt at making an island nation. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Aug 30, 2020

    As we wrap up another issue of this classic X-Men run, the wait between issues seems to get longer and longer. Hickman is one of the best writers in comics. Period. Each issue brings us closer to the end, and the build up has been great so far. You probably couldnt have asked for a better team on art duties. Yu and Gho crush it this issue and I hope we see more of them on this series. X-Men is the best book from Marvel right now. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Aug 26, 2020

    X-MEN #11 is an exciting tale that elevates Magneto's importance to the Mutant Landscape while showcasing his leadership abilities, tenacity, and his clever ingenuity with his abilities. This issue felt like something Jonathan Hickman has wanted to write for a long time and was simply looking for an avenue or excuse to justify an entire issue dedicated to the Master of Magnetism.

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Aug 26, 2020

    This is a fun book, and an excellent study of Magneto as a leader, and a Hero, for the world. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Aug 26, 2020

    In many ways, it highlights the tie-in nature of X-Men #11 in a way that feels unnecessary. In one sense, it'd be tempting to call X-Men #11 filler, biding time until Summoner makes their move, presumably in the upcoming X of Swords event. But once the reader is past the prologue, Hickman and Yu deliver such a fun ride that it doesn't matter. This is an exciting book with some creative action beats, and it plays well whether you're reading the larger event or not. It would have been nice if the issue simply focused on that.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 29, 2020

    A painfully unnecessary tie-in to Empyre is redeemed by being a showcase the awesome badassery of Magneto. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Aug 31, 2020

    It's a breath of fresh air to read a tie-in (of sorts) that doesn't feel like a tie-in. Very fun read. Read Full Review

    X-Men #11 is a strong showing for the flagship "Dawn of X" title. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Aug 26, 2020

    Overall, this story has no bearing on the greater X-Men universe, but if you are a fan of Magneto, this issue will still be worth a read. Read Full Review
