    This second year of Duggans X-Men has had a rough start, he returns to form with the beginning of the new arc Lord of the Brood, thats a kinda crossover with Kelly Thompsons Captain Marvel, thats got her own Brood arc going on, so I cant wait to see where we go from here. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Feb 15, 2023

    Overall, X-Men #19 was much better than I thought it was going to be. The Brood storyline had just enough power to keep the momentum of the narrative while also simultaneously juggling almost three to four different mini-stories in the process. Duggan is certainly on to something here, however, it may be an extremely difficult place for fans to jump in on this series. Additionally, Duggan continues to make X-Men one of the top, must-read series of the Krakoan Era by mixing and matching some wildly creative stories with new ideas and missions that continue to hit the mark. This may not be the best place to jump in but, if you go back about two to three issues, I think you could hop in there. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Feb 17, 2023

    This issue was a lot of fun, and worth the time. This invasion is more than just another beat-em-up, using King Broo to set up a story that could have impact for a while yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 15, 2023

    X-Men #19 quickly brings the team into the story with the Brood's attempt to takeover the Marvel Universe. The sense of urgency with the team search for Corsair and Broo worked to keep the X-Men and Captain Marvel stories separate for now while still having a clear connection to the greater Brood story.

    There's enough cool stuff in this issue of X-Men to keep anyone into its brand of super heroics hooked, even if the execution doesn't hit all of the marks. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 1, 2023

    X-Men #19 is surprising because it isnt completely terrible. Duggan somehow stays out of his own way and doesnt completely botch this issue. Nothing is spectacular, and the subplot makes some dumb mistakes, but the art makes up for a lot of the normal Duggan problems that are baked into the script. Read Full Review
