    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 17, 2017

    X-Men Gold #4 takes us into a whole new set of problems, along with a familiar face. There's a lot going on here, but Marc Guggenheim finds a solid balance between it all making sure that most of it connects in some way. Better than anything else this issue is the assurance that we shouldn't have much to worry about in terms of artwork. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L May 17, 2017

    This issue was again another solid book and proves that this series can survive any of the controversy that plagues it. The dynamics between the characters is so on point and really helps drive some great character driven stories. If you haven't picked this series up yet, what are you waiting for? Read Full Review

    We get a hint of nostalgia and a lot of new concern over a novel breed of Sentinels in this issue. Seeing Gambit come pretty early in the series is a treat, and I seriously hope he's here to stay for a while. There's a lot going on for the X-Men, but Guggenheim is able to balance out their troubles and create a linear story that is sure to keep our attention now more than ever. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell May 18, 2017

    Guggenheim is clearly exploring some of the classic X-Men tropes, but it would be more refreshing if the creative team didn't feel the need to rely on the nostalgia factor. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light May 18, 2017

    This is a fine comic that is a good fit for fans of traditional superhero-ing and for new readers. For readers who've been ripping through more edgy superhero fare from indie publishers, stuff with more twists and complications, this may all be a bit tame. Is the market large enough for both? Time will tell. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 23, 2017

    X-Men: Gold #4 was a solid way to start the second story arc of the series. It isn't going to blow anyone's mind but Marc Guggenheim and R.B. Silva's story is just good comic book fun. And for an a franchise that was devoid of that for so long, it is exactly what the X-Men need to get back to and X-Men: Gold #4 does just that. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray May 22, 2017

    X-Men: Goldcontinues to provide pretty to look at cookie cutter X-Men stories that aren'ttaking any risks or even developing the relationships between team members muchat all. It's tough to suggest you invest in a book that releases twice a month,at the price it does, when there isn't much to write home about just yet. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon May 18, 2017

    Guggenheim's work with Gambit is fun but this book is falling short of the others in the line. I think a big reason for that is Guggenheim's pacing. The plot feels relatively fast moving but all the reveals stop the momentum dead in its tracks. Read Full Review
