    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 22, 2021

    X-Men #3 shows that a superhero X-Men book can work in the Krakoa era if done right. Duggan impresses with this one. It's mostly just a big dumb action issue, but it all works, and it's a lot of funny. The ending is the icing on the cake, ready to throw a spanner into the Krakoan works on multiple levels. Larraz and Gracia deliver on the visuals and elevate the script immensely. This is the best issue of the book so far, hands down. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Sep 22, 2021

    Duggan continues to prove that he's cut out to lead the charge with the head X-MEN title. At first, many were concerned that Hickman's absence would derail and sideline what's been rebuild and redesigned. However, since stepping in, Duggan's X-MEN has been well crafted, lively, thrilling, and rather eventful. X-MEN #3 is the perfect snapshot of what's in store for this X-roster as well as the narrative potential in which should excite comic fans moving forward. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Sep 22, 2021

    Overall, this is yet another outstanding issue. This book really jams so much into it but manages to never feel like it is going in too many directions. This issue especially has an amazing battle and display of powers and then a shocking ending that will have a massive impact on the mutants and the world. This is a must-read series. If it is not on your pull-list, then it should be. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 24, 2021

    Gerry Duggan and Pepe Larraz continue to get better as a creative team with each passing issue and X-Men #3 is further proof of that. They tell a great story that showcases the X-Men as a strong superhero team while developing several plotlines around the team that include the High Evolutionary and Orchis future plans. What all these developments are leading towards builds greater excitement for what comes next in this series. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 1, 1970

    X-Men #3 continues to pit its heroes against all manner of threats, while slowly building up future plotlines that threaten to rock Krakoa to its core. The last page is a major bombshell, and I'm intrigued to see where the creators might take it as well as how it can impact other books across the X-Line. Read Full Review

    The big fight scene can drag on a bit too long against generic bad guys, but the focus on character and good moments between them really elevates this issue and this series. Read Full Review

    X-Men #3 continues to focus on character moments and team work. Gerry Duggan is doing a good job of throwing everything he can at our newly formed team as they try to save the world. The pencils and colors by Pepe Larraz and Marte Gracia may be their best collaboration yet. X-Men is the best X-book on the shelf! Read Full Review
