    X-Men #7 is a dense and rewarding issue that somehow feels both packed and like we're only touching the tip of the iceberg. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 27, 2020

    Faith has been one of the most positive forces in the history of mankind, creating societies and technologies and bonds between people that would have otherwise almost certainly been broken by a harsh and uncaring world. But faith has also generated some of the worst tragedies and most harrowing sins that humanity has ever devised. In that regard, perhaps it’s fitting that even with their elevated DNA, the Children of the Atom can only fly so far from their oh-so-ordinary forebearers. That there is no such thing as a perfect society, but one that must evolve — even as it shows that not all mutations are positive ones. There are no answers in X-Men #7, only questions — but it’s the act of even asking that makes this book such an exhilarating read. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Feb 27, 2020

    While DC has evergreen titles like Watchmen and We3 to hang their hats on, it's a struggle to think of anything with such prestige at Marvel. X-Men #7 makes the case that this series by Jonathan Hickman and Leinil Francis Yu's run may very well be deserving of similar recognition. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 28, 2020

    Leinil Francis Yu delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue and the story progresses brilliantly through the art. Not only does Nightcrawler get a visually stunning sequence with the tower, but the Crucible is rendered perfectly and captures both the tone and the tension of the story. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Feb 27, 2020

    "Lifedeath" is perhaps the story best suited to Leinil Francis Yu's artto date on this series. Yu's line work is stark and severe, which makescharacters like Apocalypse loom heavy in their roles while others appearas conflicted as they should be. Hickman has had some very loftyambitions in this series and his success in achieving them has not been100%, but for all of its discomfort (and it is clearly supposed to bevery uncomfortable), "Lifedeath" is perhaps the best example of himhitting his mark.

    Sequential Planet - Pashtrik Maloki Feb 27, 2020

    While some have been playing loose with the whole idea of resurrections, it's refreshing to see the architect of the new X-Men dial back on it and show what Mutants are really doing - playing with something no one really understands. This might be the best issue of the Dawn of X so far.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Feb 26, 2020

    Overall, Hickman creates a wordy issue that reveals some new wrinkles and ignites some creative discussions for readers. This issue isnt fast-paced and at times became extremely heavy. But, this narrative is important and filled with substance, which ultimately every reader wants at the end of the day. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 26, 2020

    With legitimacy given to the Resurrection Protocols, this creative team could have chosen a better time to jump into what other ways the Krakoans take advantage of this life they have been given where death is meaningless, and yet meaningful at the same time. For that, X-Men #7 came out as one of the most compelling issues of the series so far. There is nothing to be lost from spending issues like this further exploring what life is like for all mutants on this paradise. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a great book, really diving into the philosophical and spiritual nature of this new naton of mutants. It brings many new layers the helps to flesh out this bold new world. I highly recommend picking this one up. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Feb 28, 2020

    Uneven storytelling, and an egotistical desire on the part of the writer to cause furor among fans, lead to this being a controversial entry in the realm of X-Lore. Read Full Review
