Spinning out of the events of Venomverse, the Children of the Atom and the Lethal Protector team up to take down an extradimensional threat! This is it, folks, the team-up you've been asking for: X-MEN BLUE and VENOM must band together in the cold reaches of space to protect our universe from a threat more diabolical than you can imagine. But will EDDIE BROCK, his faithful SYMBIOTE, MARVEL GIRL, CYCLOPS, ICEMAN, BEAST and ANGEL be enough to save this universe? I really, really hope so.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jan 26, 2018

    This is easily the best Annual issue of Marvel Legacy and ResurreXion combined. Cullen Bunn is on fire, "Poison X" couldn't have a more promising or fun setup. To make things even better, they slapped "CLASSIFIED" labels on the preview covers of issues five and six. Hooray surprises! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Jan 29, 2018

    Venom expresses his doubts that these kids can succeed in this mission and he suggests that they call on the current X-Men lineup but It's a race against time as the students of Charles Xavier are attempting to reach the Starjammers before the Symbiotes succeed in their mission to" nah, no spoilers here, we'll just say they're up to no good and leave it at that. This issue gives new meaning to the term Bar room brawl! Read Full Review

    While this is a fun start to "Poison-X," I can't help but feel I'm suffering from both crossover and Venom fatigue. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Paul Smerdon Feb 25, 2018

    The Original Five X-men are currently stuck in the future awaiting to find out there purpose, so like quantum leap but certainly not as clear on what is the trigger that will allow them to return back to the past in one piece. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Jan 24, 2018

    All in all, my problems with this book all stem from symbiotes. The abundance of them, acting out of character, or just not looking so good. The X-Men themselves are supposed to be the focus of at least this issue, and seeing things from their perspective is a good way to keep my attention until it switches back to Eddie. This is a fine set up for the crossover, so if you’re not sick of them yet or you’re an X-Men fan and have paid them no mind, there’s no harm in looking into this one. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 27, 2018

    That aside, X-Men Blue Annual #1 is a decent enough read. It has some major flaws, and I would only recommend it to someone with a dire need to read X-Men Blue or Venom. That being said, both have been troubled titles of late, the former being of shaky quality and the latter being mixed up in crossovers like this one. Take that for what you will, and approach this one with some caution if you must. Read Full Review

    There are definitely worse issues, but this was only slightly above average at best. Read Full Review
