•  THE X-MEN and VENOM have been asking the wrong questions in the wrong seedy spaceport cantina!
•  Vicious SPACE PIRATES are bad enough...but they're even worse when they're using ALIEN SYMBIOTES as weapons!

    The addition of Venom not only makes this issue more entertaining but also makes it more serious. The X-Kids are growing up, and they're having to face bigger challenges -- whether they want to or not. This issue is a standout because it highlights that realistic change into adulthood.

    Forget the symbiotes--at its core, this is a solid story about the X-Men coming together to support Cyclops in his time of need. Read Full Review

    The idea of pairing up the X-Men and Venom is still fun since its so unusual, the story Bunn is telling is still resting on solid legs especially given the interesting final page turn, but this issue stumbles a bit in its execution. Read Full Review

    If the teenage X-Men can't even make Cyclops' search for his father compelling, then maybe it's far past time that they went home to their proper place in time and stayed there. Read Full Review

    X-Men Blue #21 could have been a decent comic if the script and art were given another pass through. As it is, its solidly out of reach of being a good comic. If you must follow this Venom crossover, it is recommendable if you want to keep up. The same can be said for X-Men completionists. Outside of that, Id give this one a pass. Read Full Review
