•  Nothing that MARVEL GIRL, CYCLOPS, JIMMY HUDSON, ICEMAN, BLOODSTORM or BEAST have done has cured the timestream, causing bits and pieces of history to blink out of existence.
•  Luckily, the original GENERATION X crew is here to help! Or fight? Guess we'll find out!
•  GUEST-STARRING CHAMBER, JUBILEE, HUSK, MONET, and so many others that we can't fit them into one solicit!

    I'm enjoying Cross Time Capers, more than Mojo Worldwide. I'm looking forward to the next issue with high anticipation. Read Full Review

    If you enjoyed X-Men Blue #17, you'll enjoy this issue, which is more of the same--just with Generation X. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Dec 30, 2017

    X-Men: Blue #18 is a beautiful comic, bursting at every seam with a tsunami of color. What Cullen Bunn's script lacks in actual story progression, it makes up for in character interaction and development. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Paul Smerdon Jan 1, 2018

    I loved this issue full of nostalgic encounter with the Gen X team, there was a fabulous amount of action as well as great art work.The plot is brilliant with the timeline in bits and the only way to resolve is them returning home, I just hope that it is not a journey as even thou I have wanted them to return home for a long time I still really enjoy their capers.I loved the interactions between the two teams that was a lot of fun considering the intense nature of their visit.I really enjoy seeing how this timeline was affected by the facture paradox. Once again not much character development, Jean seems to be at the forefront of this journey with Cyke, so the rest do not have must going on like Hudson barley gets anytime neither does Iceman which is a shame as this is meant to be an ensemble team.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 27, 2017

    Bunn has shaken things a bit with this issue and in doing so also delivers some great moments (Jubilee with Bloodstorm for instance). Where's this going? Can't say for sure but I want to find out. What was an interesting if forgettable storyline is shaping up to be something that just might stand out from the bunch. And what's even better, no idea where it's all going. Read Full Review

    I loved the plot twist, and it got me more excited for the new Phoenix arc than the first issue of the actual new serie.

    For a story that looks like it is just another nostalgia grab like the Mojoverse crossover turned out to be, this has been a fun and interesting story. Again the X-Men find that their past selves have been altering the X teams throughout time. This time they learn that the Generation X seem to be all that is left of the Xavier school in this time. Learning what they can from Banshee and Emma Frost, they then travel on. This time jumping to where they once came from. Silva does some great character designs and the colors make it feel like it the book could have been lifted from the Gen X title. This has been a surprisingly consistent arc. It will be interesting to see where the series ends up with everything that is going on in the X univers more

    This was fine. Nothing too exciting. Better than last issue though, for sure.

    After a big fight with AU Generation X, the O5 start to figure out that they themselves might be at the rotten heart of their timey-wimey shenanigans. This is two issues in a row where the bad AU is the direct result of their alternate selves going eeeevil, so I'm thinking their Quantum Leap mission will boil down to fighting or redeeming themselves. Maybe, heck, probably, both.

    Plus side, RB Silva's art is looking distinctly more passionate and soulful than it did last issue. It's still cut from Immonen cloth, but in a positive way rather than as a pale imitation.

    I can recognize this is a solidly-told story, but I also recognize that Cullen Bunn and I have an irreconcilable difference of opinions about what makes com more
