    If ever there was a Marvel comic to break down social prejudices and equal rights, X-Men is it (next to the obvious choice of actual POC titles). Well done Marc. Read Full Review

    X-Men Gold continues to impress with every issue. This is such a fun book and I find myself falling in love with Kitty Pryde more and more. This book has never wavered and for nine issues delivered consistent quality that the x-books have been known for. Read Full Review

    All in all issue #9 continues a hot streak for X-Men: Gold, which continues to put characters and development before convoluted plots and epic throwdowns. So far the process is working, and hopefully, it doesn't stop anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Politics, love, and Russian interference. Yeah, I'm loving X-Men Gold right now. Now, if Guggenheim can work in some X-Men punching out Nazis story lines over the next few issues, I'd be in X-Men, and comic book reading, heaven. Read Full Review

    New struggle and more problems await the X-Men when they just can't seem to catch a break. Even when showing that they are the heroes these people don't deserve. X-Men Gold #9 gets a little shaky when they decide these relationships need to happen, and Russia doesn't quite fit into this yet, but we are exploring problems the X-Men haven't faced in a long time which is the big takeaway.

    On Comics Ground - Tyler Wing Aug 7, 2017

    The best authors are those who craft a story through ingenious setting and narrative, unexpected plot twists, and meaning through inventive analogy which leave the reader to draw upon their own personal conclusions. Marc Guggenheim doesnt care about your thoughts but wants to make absolutely sure you care about his. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 3, 2017

    This series moves forward from its brief, unsatisfying Secret Empire tie-in to begin a new arc centered more around political and romantic drama than costumed tomfoolery. It's a welcome change of pace for the series, even if the B-plot involving Omega Red's return shows that the series isn't stopping its trend of pointlessly dusting off old villains one after the other.

    Nostalgia alone can't sell this book. You need compelling stories that understand and humanize your characters. This...this isn't that. Read Full Review
