    We didn't get to see Ink or the uniforms as hinted on the cover but all good things come to those who wait. I am also much preferring the name Kologoth to that of Kleevus originally mentioned in pre solicit listings for issue #12. Bullet dodged there I feel. Speculation was rife on some news media sites as to it being the name of another alien from previous Fantastic Four stories or just an Ike Perlmutter pet name. It could also have been a derivation of the Albanian name Klevis. Whatever the reason, I for one am glad its gone. To quote Marc Guggenheim I just came up with a name I liked better. He aint wrong.

    It's a crowd-pleaser that gets a fan favorite couple back together and lays a solid foundation for the coming story arc. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Nov 23, 2017

    This is an enjoyable issue to read, largely for the character dynamics and the art. Guggenheim wants to give us a Negative Zone arc for the next few issues. Hopefully it won't detract from the more earthbound stories. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 26, 2017

    Taking the X-Men off-planet is where some of the best stories have been told in the past. A trip into the Negative Zone promises an exciting adventure, continuing the successful course correction of ResurreXion/Legacy. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Nov 22, 2017

    Par for the course. Guggenheim want's to say something important but can't get it in there. Questionable character designs distract from how good the art is. The story may be an improvement over the dreck with Mojo, but that's a crazy low bar. Read Full Review
