    This was a solid superhero story with plenty of action, some X-Men-appropriate drama, and teases for future stories that could prove to be very, very interesting indeed. This is definitely worth a read if you're a fan of Jimmy Hudson or the Poison storyline that has been running off and on through the X-Books for the past many months now. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Jul 5, 2018

    While it's not the ending some readers were hoping for, it's certainly an interesting look at two of the children of Wolverine, and the only book dealing with any potential fallout from Venomized. Check it out if you're looking for either. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 28, 2018

    X-Men Blue #30 is a decent enough read. The fight sequence which takes center stage is well constructed and impactful. The melodrama and dialogue weaken the full experience, but they dont sink the book. The art is shaky but not outright bad. I can recommend this to anyone who has enjoyed X-Men Blue or likes Jimmy Hudson and/or Daken. I wouldnt call it a must-read for anyone else. Read Full Review

    The final pages of this issue will get you excited for X-Men Blue's big conclusion, but they're not enough to save it from overall mediocrity. Read Full Review

    X-Men Blue #30 is a textbook example of a serviceable superhero comic book. There's some melodrama, some fighting, some teases of things to come, but none of it is particularly memorable. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Jun 26, 2018

    Like the previous issue, X-MEN BLUE #30 continues to recycle the Poison plot, ignoring the series' need to move forward. This and the strange combination of childish character designs with graphic violence makes X-MEN BLUE #30 an underwhelming issue. Read Full Review

    There is really nothing that great about X-Men Blue #30. What was being pushed as a big issue with the reveal of Jimmy'S codename is painfully average. The entire post-Mothervine writing so far has been below the height that was reached in Mothervine. The Search for Jimmy Hudson is a through away story at best. It has a touch of drama and forced action. The art is fine, but ultimately the last two issues of this book have gone nowhere. Cullen Bunn would have been better served for Mothervine to be his final story before both Gold and Blue are replaced after Extermination.

    Nothing about this issue makes it seem like Jimmy's "Codename" will stick and the name picked was treated with no conviction or care as anything else in this b more

    I didn't enjoy this story. I find it boring and a lost of my and their time. We didn't learn nothing and that don't give anything to Jimmy character. And that true for all character in this thing. I don't understand de parenthesis when Iceman speak about Beast. Yeah that was mean, but normally this kind of thing is for foreign language. But there is nothing indicating Iceman wasn't speaking in english. Weird.

    Cover - Not bad but didn't like it even if in ling. 1.5/2
    Writing - Why ? I don't understand what give this story to the title or any character. 1.5/2
    Arts - The art wasn't good, but wasn't too bad. There is a lack of background but that isn"t a exception in the big two currently. 2/3
    Feeling - That keep me fr more

    Cullen Bunn has been mostly great on X Men Blue, however this is the worst issue of the serie, which is no surprise coming as the finale from the worst storyline.
    The Venomized story was cool while it lasted but it has dragged on too long and the Wolverine Venom Poison symbiote that took control is just ludicrous. Maybe another artist could have made it striking but the art has been abysmal and the creature looks like it could have been drawn by a pre schooler.
    Hope to never see this mashup again. Seems next issue gets back to business with the White Queen vs. Magneto

    The battle for Jimmy Hudson fizzles out. After 40 pages of chase and struggle, Jean abruptly decides, "nah, he's cool, let's leave him alone." On the art side, this youthful style would work great, in general, in theory, on a teen hero book. This script demands a no-holds-barred buckets-o-blood Wolverine fight, though. You could not pick a worse subject if you were TRYING to highlight this style's limitations - which, I suddenly suspect, the writer might actually have been doing. It's not like his script was so great. Bringing a story around in a "things pretty much stay the same" loop is tricky, and this unsatisfying example demonstrates all the potential drawbacks.
