    X-Men Gold is one of the most entertaining books on the rack this week. Read Full Review

    The X-Men books don't always have the best records when it comes to crossovers, especially in recent history. But Marc Guggenheim and Mike Mayhew really do an excellent job in this opening chapter. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 4, 2017

    "Mojo Worldwide" gets off to a strong start. The Gold/Blue crossover features a giant cast of mutants, politically relevant antagonist, and an X-Men comic history lesson. There's not much more you could want! Read Full Review

    Ultimately, though, it's the story and the weirdly compelling nature of that stories seeming metatextual commentary carries X-Men Gold #13, and sets up a good start to the crossover. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 4, 2017

    The issue isn't bad but there's just too much to make things go smoothly. Writer Marc Guggenheim does what he can with everything and it might have been better to keep things more focused on each team for this storyline to come next. A rough start that plays a lot with nostalgia. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 16, 2017

    In the end though, this comic provided many of the same problems which Blue had. The story is trying a little too hard to be cute. The art is good, but Gold brought no spin to the proceedings to justify the problems. I unfortunately cannot recommend this one either. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jason Segarra Oct 4, 2017

    An okay outing for the Gold Team, which (given it's track record) makes this like the third best issue of the series. There are some art issues here and some silly character moments, but overall this issue is fine. Read Full Review
