    This issue is exactly what the X-MEN BLACK one-shot series needs. It doesn't take itself too seriously yet still delivers a story that will stay with readers hours after they put the issue down. The art is good, but disjointed, which is the only real complaint I have about the issue. Other than that, it's an almost perfect issue that's truly enjoyable to read. Read Full Review

    An unexpectedly fun, bright, heartwarming story with some great art, followed by an intriguing psychological look at a classic X-Men villain, this book has something for everyone. Whether or not you're a fan of Mojo or Apocalypse, this book earns a high recommendation. Read Full Review

    If you like Mojo, or just want a fun X-Men centric comedy, this might be worth picking up. I had a blast reading it, but it also wasn't something that really blew me away. I wish we got to see more of Mojo the internet troll, rather than just two pages of it. Overall, it is a nice addition to the X-Men Black series. Read Full Review

    Serious X-fans will find more to like in this than more casual readers, but this series of one-shots has been a fun way to get some unexpected stories out of this corner of the X-Universe. Read Full Review

    Very funny and great artwork. Hoping this bodes well for the Uncanny relaunch.

    Oh, and c-gate can taste Mojo's yellow schwanzstucker.

    I will not speak about the Apocalypse Story. Ok a little to tell the art isn't bad, but I'm not interested.
    So I will make a rating only for the mojo part. Thanks for your understanding.

    I loved what I read, it's fun, with some drama, a very good reading moment & I expect nothing less than that for this book.
    Mojo torn about a love interest & his hunger for audimat is very fun. I like the way they mock old Fan base "Oh the young mutants spoil the spot for the X-men I know, they have to die" I laughed hard !

    Cover - The variant very good, we have a glimpse of mojo madness. I choose to see it related to my reading. 2/2
    Writing - They put piece by piece the grand design of this story very smartly ! I was ho more

    This was a solid one shot, I'm still more intrigued by the Apocalypse story more than anything.

    I hate Mojo with the fiery depth of true comic-nerd passion, but this charming little story redeemed him with its intensely cheery outlook. A well-written Glob Herman might just be the world's best wingman. The Apocalypse B story is getting interesting, too. This issue wasn't an epic on the visual front, but it had an amazing fund of thoughtful, polished writing.
