    From top to bottom, this feels like an Uncanny X-Men story from the days before mutants were going extinct. Read Full Review

    A solid issue, with some good moments, but nothing that will blow your pants off. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Dec 20, 2017

    Overall this was a pretty good issue that follows the formula to the letter. That being said there isn't anything outstanding about it either. The artwork is fun, bright and really well done and the story is fun and engaging. This series though has been known for some outstanding stories and this one just runs in the middle.

    It's a slightly above average comic, one that's passable but nothing special. With a stronger script, it could have been more. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Dec 29, 2017

    Guggenheim has waxed lyrical for so long now about wanting to do a space saga story and I think it isnt living up to the hype despite a great start the last two issues. It almost seems as though hes distracted here and trying to sneak in some foreboding for Rachels fate while NOT dealing with the drama at hand. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Dec 20, 2017

    No, not really. It's not the worst that the series has been, but issue 18 is just lazy and uninspired. I know this can't logistically be possible, but it feels like Guggenheim is making this story up as he goes along. If Kologoth's whole goal was to revive his stupid full body Zardoz god then that is tremendously underwhelming. Or it would be if I expected quality from this book. You get the idea.
