    Noto continues to delivers some fantastic art throughout the issue. I liked the visual style a lot and it works well for the characters. Read Full Review

    Swordwielding women slaughter fascists and so much more in X-Men #32. In one fell swoop, Magik's mutant gift is restored and she's reunited with two of her oldest friends. Though balking not once, but thrice at bringing Illyana and Kate Pryde's intimacy to the next stage, the issue as a whole is still a whole lot of fun. Read Full Review

    The issue is hampered a bit by lots of references to events occuring in other "Fall of X" books. Otherwise, this issue represents a solid outing that will put a smile on the face of a longtime X-Men fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Mar 8, 2024

    To all good things must come to an end, and its never been more true than it is with Big Two flagship comics. Duggans run has had some amazing peaks and valleys, but sometimes the lows seemed to outweigh the highs, and really distracted from my overall experience. Duggan will have to end on the highest of notes, or it could put a blot on this era that has revolutionized the world of Marvels Merry Mutants. Read Full Review

    Who are these people? This is not the X-men. I'm ready for Krakoa to end. Maybe next issue there won't be so much blood. Save that for Blood Hunt in a few months. Read Full Review

    This series continues to cruise along inoffensively. It's very readable and we're at the good part of the story, so this is prime action. However, this issue felt relatively weightless and there continue to be regular weaknesses in the dialogue. I'm still enjoying it.

    While I did see this as an improvement over last month's issue, I'm still not entirely invested in this. I feel as though this series is just coming out to give readers something until the new relaunch as opposed to just ending until the summer. Don't get me wrong, this is a solid read on both the writing and art fronts. However, I just feel as though this could be something more.

    It's fine and it reads OK but I'm just not into what's happening since it feels like I'm reading emotionless sequences. Ok A then B then we add C like a robotic dictation. Don't get me wrong there is attempt at infusing emotions here on every panel but it's not working for me. This should be enjoyable but it's not. The clear winners so far for me are Guillen and Ewing who continue doing great work on their books. Noto is a great artist who does it all including the coloring. His art works well on the still sequences but the action stuff is lacking or he was rushed.

    Purchased issue #32 of X-Men for the Russel Dauterman Trading Card variant cover. In this issue, as I’ve read it, we find a few ragtag members of the X-Men executing a mission to save captured mutants from the Reverend Stryker Education Center for Disadvantaged Youth, located in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The weak men of Orchis maintaining the facility are slaughtered without ruth by one of Krakoa’s War Captains Magik, while hampered by gift blocking nanomites, as well as the always-lurking-in-the-shadows-ready-to-save-the day, Kitty (‘cat, Kate, Kathrine) Pryde. Hell hath no fury like scorned hellfire gala party poopers. Magik and Kitty slaughter men attempting to stop the intrusion by slashing them to pieces; more

    This issue was actually quite average (a 5.5 i would say). But, I'm tired of seeing Polaris with a cup of coffee. It's not funny Duggan.

    This was a confusing hodgepodge that was the latest disappointment in the Fall of X. Gerry Duggan's script throws various plot elements at the wall, hoping some will stick, but ultimately leaving us with a disjointed mess. The issue lacks focus, bouncing from scene to scene without a clear narrative flow or explanation. Characters randomly show up from out of nowhere when they have either been MIA completely or are part of other ongoing stories.

    One glaring weakness is Duggan's portrayal of the female X-Men. Gone are individual, complex personalities. Instead, they're reduced to one-note stereotypes, trading snarky quips with little to distinguish them from each other. Its as though he's writing these characters for meme-potenti more

    I gave this a try because Lockheed was advertised on the cover and I should have known better. The worst one liners and out of date references made me cringe throughout the entire issue. These abominations are not the X-men and Duggan doesn't know what he's doing! The art and coloring are mediocre but they still shine in comparison to the writing. This abortion is devoid of depth, substance and history and seems to care more about being edgy and empowering than it does about telling a compelling story. It just feels way too inorganic. Derbycomics explains the problems in full detail better than I ever could so I'll just stop now and go somewhere and cry.
