    The X-Men Gold team faces external and internal trouble with the reappearance of both Mesmero's Brotherhood and Rachel's hound identity. Marc Guggenheim and Diego Bernard's issue falls flat in the villain department but redeems itself by hinting at a new future for the team. Read Full Review

    The character work and plot set up is of a high enough caliber to carry the issue few, but the rough around the edges artwork keeps the issue from truly soaring. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Feb 8, 2018

    In the end, the plot to X-Men Gold #21 is a little conventional if functional. The art team of Bernard, Mayer, and Prianto are the real heroes of the comic. With gorgeous art and a knack for visual storytelling, they bring this comic into the status of solidly recommended. As such, you should feel free to give this one a read. Read Full Review

    If it wasn't for the art, X-Men Gold would be on some pretty shaky ground. But it really does need more from its heroes and villains to break out of this rut. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Feb 16, 2018

    X-Men Gold #21 is a flawed issue; it's not perfect and even feels a bit repetitive in times as it doesn't really bring anything new to the table in X-Men mythology that hasn't been done before and been done better. But it is just about entertaining enough for X-Men fans to get something out of it and it's hard not to like an issue with art as fantastic as this. Read Full Review

    The team has yet another short order status shuffle but it has done them little good here. Someone's heart just isnt in it maybe? Read Full Review
