    This is an amazing issue that does a great job of setting up the rest of the series. Even if the Brotherhood is just getting started, so are the X-Men. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good May 2, 2017

    This title is still one of the strongest to come out of the re-launch, but thanks to this public snafu it appears that it might already be in trouble of keeping a consistent creative team on board. If this leads to delays are changes in plot, this book could be dead in the water before it even has a chance to start. Read Full Review

    We Got This Covered - Tom Bacon Apr 26, 2017

    X-Men Gold #2 is another strong issue, proving that with Marc Guggenheim, this main X-Men book is in good hands. Read Full Review

    This may read as comic book comfort food, but there's something to be said for knowing the classics and being able to emulate them well. There's a lot to like in this solid second installment of X-Men Gold, which hopefully will continue its momentum moving ahead. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Apr 26, 2017

    I do have high hopes that this series will be able to find its voice. This is a very promising series but controversy may have boosted sales, but in the long run it may have hurt the series more than we know. Only time will tell if this is true or not. There are some great moments here still and Marc Guggenheim has chosen the perfect team of X-Men to lead us further into ResurreXion. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Apr 28, 2017

    This comic is setting up nicely to be a solid superhero team book, with just enough super-powered action to keep it humming along. Let's see if it can manage to stay out of the drama swirling around much of the Marvel line. Read Full Review

    Guggenheim and company fail to build on a tepid debut, but there's still hope that they can salvage their "back to basics" approach if they do more to meaningfully build up the world around these characters rather than just stick them in familiar roles and familiar situations. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray May 1, 2017

    While theart is decent enough to appreciate for what it is, the X-Men in action, the storyis just too random, scattered, and even worse treading into uninteresting territory for my tastes.  There are no bombastic X-Men: Gold team adventuresto be found here, just poorly done politics, and a 'been there done that'feeling.

    On Comics Ground - James Portis May 1, 2017

    Rehash Gold #2 is the definition of Meh. you feel like you got X-menish things out of it, but nothing felt intrguing nothing inivative. Its the kind of thing that makes people leave mainstreem comics. They see nothing but the same thing, but to this degree of rehash is almost shameless. If youre an X-men fan youll enjoy it, but its not the kind of thing a casual person would enjoy. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jason Segarra Apr 26, 2017

    It's unfortunate, but I feel like this opening arc is going to be a total dud. The art is weak, the writing feels a little haphazard and though I can definitely see the influence of Claremont on the book's direction, it's not the good Claremont that's coming through. Hopefully with a new penciller and new focus, the second arc will right this ship. Read Full Review
