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

    IGN - Blair Marnell Dec 14, 2017

    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

    This may be a sequel to the original Cross-Time Caper in spirit only, but I am enjoying what is being done. Bunn just seems to be having fun playing with time. In this we see the return of the X-Men of 2099. Their future has been altered by the original five (or so they are told) themselves who have taken over Alchemax and have put the world in a desperate state separated by two classes. Having read the original X 2099 when they were released I would say this is the best I have ever seen them. Silva does some great layouts and captures some good body language and faces. The colors make everything really stand out. At the end I noticed that Bloodstorm was no longer in the panels. It could be an over site by Silva, but it could also be intend more

    Another fun issue, I never read X-Men 2099 but it was still a fun dance in yesterday's version of tomorrow. Dig Sila's art too.

    The Blue team spends 20 pages in 2099, confirming in the laziest possible way that yep, they sure are on a cross-time caper, all right. Cullen Bunn still thinks that if he stacks up enough deep cut characters, the cumulative "wow, you sure know your Marvel d-list" credit will make up for a lack of interesting story or compelling characterization. It does not. X-Men 2099 weren't all that hot in their original incarnation (gape in wonder at their 90s-tastic codenames!) and this sad revisitation does nothing of note with them. RB Silva dresses it all up in off-brand Immonen-esque visuals. Usually when I make a "this artist looks a lot like this other famous-er artist" comparison, I'm trying to be (mostly) complimentary, but in this case there' more

    This issue was pretty boring. Not much of note happens.
