    A fantastic standalone issue that with an Excalibur reunion and a on the street fan perspective of the X-Men. Both will be highly enjoyable to any X-Men fans. The annual covers a surprising reveal for Meggan and Brian! Read Full Review

    X-Men: Gold Annual #1 still gives me some hope for the current run of X-Men comics. Its still flawed, and I by no means think this is some kind of turning point. However, it is quite enjoyable as a standalone story, and the team does a very good job of turning in an emotional and upbeat tale. I recommend this one. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Jan 14, 2018

    The back up story with Storm was equally heart-warming, very well scripted by Nero and the blind adoration of the girl, though maybe a little overly saccharine sweet, IS the way any child would idolise their hero and given the negative assertion from all around her (even her own aunt) it was nice to see a child who's innocent opinion could not be swayed by their supposed betters.

    This is far from an essential issue, but it's still a noticeable step above the current X-Men: Gold arc. Read Full Review

    So, not a bad annual - but not as special as it should be. But it is nice to see Excalibur back in action. Read Full Review

    This issue includes two single stories, both of which have a nice upbeat story and leave on a good note, though the second story felt a little over the top. And while it's a bigger issue, it comes in at a higher price and with some great stories going on within the X-Men books, this might have been better as a introduction to get new fans into the Xmen. It's a nice upbeat book but I was disappointed. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 10, 2018

    Inconsistent tone and lukewarm overall quality make the main story a match (not in a good way) for the relentless mediocrity of the current X-Men: Gold run. A bouncing baby Braddock and a sweet B story don't do nearly enough to counterbalance the problematic script or to excuse the huge page-two spoiler. So my jokey suggestion from earlier becomes quite serious: Wait on this one until after Gold #22 comes out - or just skip it entirely. Read Full Review

    In my opinion this is largely for completists only. It's a fine issue but it really has no lasting impression. You'll read it, smile, put it down and never think of it again, which is not necessarily a bad thing. If your looking for some depth this comic is not for you. Read Full Review
