On the eve of the Hellfire Gala, threats have closed in on the X-Men from all sides. The secret machinations of Doctor Stasis, the terror of Gameworld, even the threat of the X-Men's own secrets getting out...it's all led to this!

    Larraz has a brilliant visual eye and every page has something that feeds the imagination. I continue to be in awe of the style and spectacle of this series. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Lia Williamson Jun 22, 2022

    Larraz's artwork is beautiful as always, making every issue look like a 10/10 comic. Duggan's writing has picked up plot wise and seems to have secured himself a pretty good formula for how to handle the changing roster of the X-Men title in the Krakoa era. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Jun 22, 2022

    Its been a long year, and the end of the Cordyceps Jones plot has finally come to an end, but the secrets surrounding Dr. Stasis, and ORCHIS are just heating up. Unfortunately this looks to be the last issue with the current lineup, filled with familiar faces that we really dont know anything about. Lack of characterization for most of the cast has been one of the most glaring issues weve had with this run, so lets hope this next chapter wont fall into the same rut this one had.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 25, 2022

    This brief roster of the X-Men comes to a largely satisfying ending, with some great action sequences and some cool character moments. But I'm disappointed that we don't get more time with these characters being a team. Twelve issues is too few for a roster to really matter. Read Full Review

    Year one wraps with a plot-filled extravaganza. The story is solid, and the art is exceptional. I can't wait to see what's next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 22, 2022

    X-Men #12 is a strong conclusion to the first year of the latest volume of the core series in the franchise. The way the X-Men put an end to Gameworld and handle Dr. Stasis plotting against them showcased why they are one of Marvel's premiere superhero teams. Hopefully the upcoming Hellfire Gala is able to add to the positive momentum this first year this X-Men team had rather than shaking things up just for the sake of it. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 30, 2022

    X-Men #12 closes out Duggans first year on the book, and it keeps up the bad work this book has become known for. Duggan and Tini Howard seem to be in a death spiral to see who can write the worst X-Men book, and the only reason Howard is winning is because Duggan has Larraz and Gracia making the book look good. Other than that, this is mostly drivel. Read Full Review
