    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good May 9, 2017

    This book is still strong and as the next arc begins the true test of how solid the creative team is will begin as the initial hype dies down and the real grind of an ongoing series starts to set in. Can Marvel keep the ball rolling? Or will this series lose steam and die; which appears to be a recurring problem for Marvel and their newer titles. Read Full Review

    Things are getting really intense in this series, and the X-Men have an entirely new enemy at the end of this issue. It'll be interesting to see if they are able to prove themselves to the humans that essentially control mutants' fate. I don't know about you guys, but I'm already itching for more! Read Full Review

    Many say that controversy can kill a books momentum and this issue proves that you can't take the X-Men down that easily. This is a must read series and I highly recommend picking it up. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - James Portis May 19, 2017

    X-men Gold #3 isn't bad by any means. I feel like Marc Guggenheim needed time to get into a stride of storytelling here. Which is fine but it did make the first few issues suffer greatly. Ive seen other titles flow into their first arcs at an amazing pace. This just is the definition of meh from the perspective of a long time X-men fan whos seen crazy starts like Wolverine and the X-men. Now that weve started to get somewhere, Ill stay on for the next arc and see what happens. Oh who am I kidding its X-men I have no choice but to read it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray May 8, 2017

    X-Men: Goldis a book that I find to be telling just generic X-Men stories, with aboveaverage art, and not really having a solid storyline going forward I findmyself investing in or committing to purchase twice per month. Now that ouropening three part story is out of the way I hope we can get down to more seriousbusiness highlighting the strengths of the characters on our team movingforward. Read Full Review

    Superbromovies - Ernesto Valenzuela May 3, 2017

    X-Men Gold #3, while sporting some beautiful (but not very intricate art) and an uninspired simmered down story, still has some strengths with the development of Kitty Pryde as a Leader and the statement made about the status quo of the mutants at the end of the issue provides impactful and relevant themes to todays society, and shows that there is still hope for X-Men Gold yet. Next issues 'Gambit' story arc should hopefully put this team in a better position than this issue did. Read Full Review

    In every sense of the word, this opening arc of X-Men: Gold was a colossal misfire. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, a new artist can help pick this one up, but for now, this book is scraping the bottom of the barrel. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams May 10, 2017

    Marvel has the opportunity to tell compelling stories about difficult topics, with characters and teams who've addressed such topics, whose conceptual foundation was designed as a reaction to such rhetoric, but it requires honesty and thoughtfulness. Frankly, it's unlikely this creative team will ever be the ones willing to tell that story and do so honestly and it's in readers' best interests not to give them the opportunity to try.
