    It's a beautiful, complicated issue that's sure to bring out some complicated feelings from fans, and it's all the better for it. Read Full Review

    X-MEN GOLD #30 finally pulls the spotlight away from Kitty Pryde and shines it on some other characters. While the decision to wed Rogue and Gambit is probably only due to fan demands, it at least shows Guggenheim is capable of writing characters other than Colossus and Kitty. Combined with stellar art, the plot and characterization of this issue make it one of the best in the series thus far. Read Full Review

    The Beat - AJ Frost Jun 20, 2018

    This, in the end, is a BUY from me, but only because it stands out as a great single installment of an otherwise bland run. And even if readers are annoyed by the twist, the emotional stakes of this comic are top-notch, the writing goes beyond the norm, and the art is crisp and impactful. Read Full Review

    The shock value aside this had some deeply emotional scenes that deserve to be explored in more depth. And now Wolvie is back, will he take Kitty to a bar and set her up to fight with Juggernaut and make her pay for hurting Pete? Read Full Review

    Warts and all, there's something to be said about X-Men: Gold #30, even if the eventual twist of the issue is hampered by the fact that the windup never felt that organic in the first place. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 20, 2018

    While the issue has its moments, there's just an emotional void that's present and a lack of connecting with emotions that ultimately sink the issue. It's hard to read and not eye roll to the point of headache. While a marriage is fine, the drama this direction has brought was set up and then quickly deflated to the point of no pay off. We've seen an X wedding before and it actually was exciting and felt like an event, this feels like a cheap knock off of the original. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 21, 2018

    X-Men: Gold #30 is a complete disappointment. Everything about this issue, from the pacing to the character work, leaves the reader scratching their head on why the decisions made were allowed to happen. Read Full Review
