    Gerry Duggan's self-aware style of superheroes suits the premise well, allowing him to build Cyclops' importance as a fighter, leader, and symbol sincerely without becoming overbearing. Artist Pepe Larraz and colorist Marte Gracia make the most of the opportunity to unleash their complete mastery of superhero aesthetics. Read Full Review

    Doctor Stasis finally makes his first move against mutantkind, and its the assassination of the face of the X-Men, Cyclops. Combine that with Pepe Larrazs return makes this book look just absolutely gorgeous. The scents from the last issue and this issue almost feels like their releases should have been switched, but maybe theres a reason Duggans going about the introduction to Captain Krakoa non linearly, and I just havent figured it out yet. Hopefully Doc Stasis & Capt. Krakoa gamble pays off big. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 30, 2022

    When combining all the plot developments and phenomenal artwork X-Men #7 is easily the best issue of this series to date. Duggan and Larraz really nailed everything they were looking to do with the story. They gave weight to Cyclops latest death and why he is now Captain Krakoa while showcasing him at his best as the leader of the X-Men. That along with developments around Orchis and other sub-plots make this a can't miss X-Men issue. Read Full Review

    Yet, the direction of X-MEN moving forward and the stories that appear on the horizon truly do fascinate me. And we know its only a matter of time before everyone knows about mutant resurrection. The question now is when. Maybe thats the next big event? Either way, I think Duggan is humming now and I haven't genuinely felt this enthusiastic for this X-MEN book in quite some time. Heres also to hoping we get a better mix of characters in the future. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    Now that we've gotten the proper introduction and origin of Captain Krakoa, I like this story much better. This issue is an awesome showcase for this X-Men squad and a fun step forward for this new storyline. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Manzo Jan 31, 2022

    While the issue feels a little misplaced for the order of the series, it does its job of paying homage to Cyclops and making new questions about the enemy orchestrating everything. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 2, 2022

    X-Men #7 is a comic with fantastic art. The writing doesn't match the art at all, but Duggans writing is merely bad in this issue, not as abysmal as it has been. At least he choreographed a nice action scene. Larraz and Gracia are the MVPs because of course they are. The art elevates the so-so writing. Read Full Review
