    This is a solid comic, but mystery fatigue is starting to set in. Read Full Review

    On the whole, this is more enjoyable than the previous issue which kicked off this time travel story. But it still feels like X-Men Blue isn't living up to its potential. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 13, 2017

    The issue had so much potential with the re-introduction of X-Men 2099 but things feel squandered and rushed. It's clearer at the end of the issue that we shouldn't expect depth instead we're sort of getting a “this is your life” tour of X moments throughout the decades. That could work as a whole but as individual pieces it misses something until the end is near. Not enough focus creates an issue that's more nostalgia than anything interesting. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 15, 2017

    While it is cool to see the X-Men of 2099 again, this comic feels very empty. There arent any relevant or interesting plot points. None of the character interactions stand out despite Iceman having some charming moments. The art is a mess. Unfortunately I cant recommend this trip to 2099. Give it a pass. Read Full Review
