    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L May 24, 2017

    This is the absolute best series from the ResurreXion lineup. If you haven't checked it out yet you must pick it up. There is so much fun and excitement to be had in every issue that it's such a joy to read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Chris Hassan May 24, 2017

    The Blue X-Men squad's next adventure begins - and it looks like it's going to be as great as their first! Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Mya Nunnally May 24, 2017

    Though not breaking any boundaries or blowing any minds, this issue cements X-MEN BLUE as a solid series with a lot of potential. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck May 25, 2017

    There are still some rough edges to be smoothed out, but overall this is a solid adventure in the X-men tradition. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 25, 2017

    This is only the start to Jimmy Hudson's integration into this world, so it is hard to say just yet if this is a development we can fully roll with. Aside from that, X-Men Blue #4 this was undeniably a story a long time coming for anyone who has been looking for more engagement with mutants from a dead universe. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Logan Dalton May 27, 2017

    A slightly intriguing final page teaser (But did anybody really want that much of a callback to a Brian Wood comic.)and the fun chemistry and interplay between the original five X-Men thanks to Cullen Bunn's rapid fire writing makeX-Men Blue#4 bearable. (I'm calling Jimmy Hudson “Young Man Logan” from now on”.) Sadly, the plotline does feel like filler compared to the lofty heights of the opening arc thanks to its reliance on the bad cover version of Wolverine and will definitely be a snooze to anyone who missed Ultimate X, Wood's run onUltimate Comics X-Men, or the Ultimate Universe crossover arc ofAll-New X-Men.

    IGN - Blair Marnell May 25, 2017

    It's refreshing when writers embrace continuity and build on it instead of pretending that the previous stories didn't happen. Cullen Bunn actually picks up a few threads from Brian Bendis' All-New X-Men run, and he even remembers that Young Cyclops wasn't around for that particular tale. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon May 25, 2017

    The pacing might have taken a step back this issue, but X-Men: Blue is still one of the best new X-books out there. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark May 26, 2017

    This issue is your classic lead in issue to the next big arc. Nothing truly major occurs as the pieces are getting put in place for the next big conflict. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Columbus Comics Corner May 29, 2017

    We're given an drawn out issue with plenty of padding. The bi-weekly schedule continues to show in the art and minimalist story telling. While this is my least favorite issue of the series, I hope the book doesn't lose its way and we can continue the fun we were given at the beginning of the series.  Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 28, 2017

    When it comes to showing off the fun dynamic between the original X-Men, Cullen Bunn knocks it out of the park with X-Men: Blue #4. Unfortunately the unnecessary confusion added to the series with the integration of characters from the Ultimate Universe just reminds readers why it is so difficult to read an X-Men comic. Hopefully this new arc moves quickly so Bunn and company can focus on where X-Men: Blue excels. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher May 25, 2017

    He's still that character who failed miserably to fill the void left by Logan's death in Ultimate Marvel. Now, he's in a world where two other characters can claim some measure of success, one of which made Dafne Keen famous. Jimmy is a long way from that kind of success. That baggage is still as heavy as ever. He's still that character few mourned when Ultimate perished at the end of Secret Wars. Escaping that baggage isn't easy and with X-men Blue #4, he's off to a poor start. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 27, 2017

    An otherwise enjoyable issue is hampered by the fact that Marvel is shoe-horning the worst possible character into this fun comic. Just ugh. Read Full Review
