    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 22, 2017

    Keeping this crossover on a weekly release schedule will keep it from getting stale. This is an easily digestible story that pokes fun at the X-Men continuity in a tasteful way, using the most tasteless but enjoyable villain. Read Full Review

    This crossover is turning into more of a diversion than a big event for the X-Men. And that's fine, as long as it continues to be entertaining. But the shock value has already worn off. Read Full Review

    A healthy mix of ups and downs, but the quality of Marc Laming's pencils helps save this book. The action is fun, if flawed, and I like the character models - even if they're a touch off from where they should be. Before I talk myself into not liking this book, I'm going to give it a C grade and keep moving. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 18, 2017

    While I was enjoy X-Men: Gold #14, Marvel Legacy and the previous event has veered a little and taken some of the shine off. It's not bad but it's also not quite exciting enough that it's one of the first things I run to read like I used to for X comics. Hopefully after this we'll get a focus on the characters which usually makes the series the strongest. Right now, it feels a bit empty, like Mojo's shows. All flash, little heart. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Oct 24, 2017

    While the previous instalments have treated us to such delights as Spider-Man and the Champions tackling the barrier trapping the X-Men, Kitty telling Rachel they WILL have a discussion about her and Kurt, Jimmy calling Old Man Logan "pops", Rachel and Scott similarly discussing what she should call him (apparently dad is actually acceptable compared to adolescent dad, tyke dad or little dad) this issue hasn't given us too much to go on in the way of plot development and team interaction with Nightcrawler, Colossus and Beast in particular taking much of a back seat. While this is a common hazard with ensemble cast and the fact it's three separate teams it may just be too much to juggle story wise. Read Full Review
