    To Bunn's credit, I feel like this series, with all of its brewing subplots and mysteries, has been running for months " when, in fact, we're only on its fifth issue. The power of two issues a month " but mostly a testament to strong storytelling that makes each issue of X-Men: Blue worth that $3.99 price tag! Read Full Review

    X-MEN BLUE #5 is certainly another worthy addition to the refreshing new series that will bring you back to the golden age of the X-Men without being derivative. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Jun 14, 2017

    I am gonna give this issue a solid B because while it was good all around having multiple versions of characters around can get confusing down the line and I would personally prefer a more consistency between the issues going forward. But still overall I do love what this comic has become and what it continues to become. Read Full Review

    It felt like the early issues of X-Men Blue were more interested in rebooting classic threats rather than introducing something new. Issue #5 doesn't really break from that trend, but it's at least drawing from more recent characters who I didn't really expect to see again. Unfortunately, the personalities that made these characters interesting in another universe don't seem to have made the transition. Read Full Review

    Overall while not being the best of the series this issue is still a really good read. The chemistry between the characters is so well written that I enjoy all the witty banter between them. There is a lot of setup happening in this issue but it successfully get me excited for the new dynamic Jimmy will bring to the team and what this new villain has in store for our young mutants.

    As much as I dislike the idea of adding the most knock-offiest of all Wolverine knock-offs to this team, Bunn is still writing a fun and enjoyable X-Men comic. The art has gone downhill since the first issue, though, due to an almost immediate switch in the art team. Read Full Review
