    This was another great issue. So much is happening and it's really happening pretty fast. I love Frenzy's character. She is really getting some big growth from her earlier days. She's funny, super tough, and has some deep mental issues. What more can you ask from a character? Read Full Review

    X-Men Legacy is a sage of sorts. Sure, it's a Rogue book mostly, but the relationships that she is at the center of really make the series stand apart from the other X books. This issue shows how Carey can master the balance between the characters interactions of the daily drama while presenting an actual problem for the X-Men to deal with. I enjoyed this issue very much and am eager to see what other of Legion's personalities need to be dealt with in the future. Read Full Review

    Mike Carey delivers a solid story in X-Men Legacy #251 that leads us to the upcoming showdown with Styx, but the issue can't escape the pall of filler. While it does the job, this book can easily be passed up in favor of what's to come. Read Full Review

    After a few stumbles post "Age of X", Carey is getting his story back on track, but ultimately the art lets us down emotionally, leaving too much to be desired. Read Full Review
