    X-MEN LEGACY #13 may be one of the best issues yet of Marvel's greatest ongoing title – it's as smart and weird and sly as it's always been, but there's a certain level of accessibility and charm in the thirteenth issue that almost ensures a bigger audience on the horizon, and sees the creative team hitting a level of confidence that has me in desperate impatience for future issues. Best of all, Spurrier and Huat have given me something of such high quality that I'll never get tired of saying READ THIS COMIC – I promise, you will be glad you did. Read Full Review

    I hate giving this comic anything less than a 5 at this time because I know once I read the next issue or two I'm going to want to go back and change it to a 5. I have full faith that the lack of information and the semi-slow setup is necessary. So while it would probably get a 4 I'm going to give this one a 4.5 knowing I'll want to go back and up it even more. That's called faith in an author right there and Spurrier has completely earned that from me at this point! Read Full Review

    Tan Eng Huat steps back into the spotlight with this issue. The same strengths and flaws that have characterized his art thus far are readily apparent. There's a clear sense of energy to every panel thanks to the inventive character designs and titled angles. But his figures are inconsistent at best, and too often female characters suffer from receding hairlines and other overly masculine traits. Read Full Review

    This arc may be called Hope and Glory, but there's a lot more to it than just being 'the England story'. David's character is progressing in interesting ways, and the addition of Pete Wisdom to the proceedings is good fun, whilst Blindfold continues to be the voice of reason (surprisingly). The artwork is improving, and the story has never been better. X-Men Legacy is top notch comics, once again. Read Full Review

    Tan Eng Huat is an artist that brings a little good and a little bad with him every time he puts pen to page. While this issue features many great character moments, and these allow colorist Jose Villarrubia to inject a ton of color, facial expressions are still something Huat struggles with, and the consistency still isn't there. Some character look really fantastic, refined, and expressive, while others appear to have no gender or much more than a blank scowl. When the zany action starts Huat really hits his stride and it doesn't take long to remind you why he is the lead-artist on this book. His frantic style and creative designs really lend itself to the outlandishness this series exudes. Readers that have been digging this series will find that this next story sounds just as intriguing as the past ones have been and I'm proud to say that this is one of my favorite series right now. Superb. Read Full Review
