    While this issue isn't perfect, it does an excellent job showing how successful a crossover can be. Bunn's choice of including Killer Thrill was a bad call, but he makes up for it by giving Jean and Cyclops the character development they deserve. Read Full Review

    Like our heroes, X-Men Blue has been overtaken by symbiotes. But this issue shows there's still good underneath all that... whatever symbiotes are made of. Read Full Review

    Poison-X feels like a story in search of a much better story that will save it from itself. But it's not going to find one, because this crossover is just a set up for an even larger crossover that could have easily left the X-Men out of it. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 2, 2018

    X-Men: Blue #22 isn't an especially bad issue. It still has its problems, but they're far less pronounced. The resulting book can get a little boring, but there is some fun to be had sprinkled throughout. This isn't a must-buy comic by any metric, but it is tenatively recommendable if you're a dedicated follower of the X-Men or Venom. Read Full Review

    X-Men Blue #22 continues the "Poison X" crossover with Venom, and the story feels like its dragging. Read Full Review
