    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood Aug 1, 2013

    As expected, Legion's plan is more complicated than Wisdom imagined, and while the conclusion doesn't answer any of the questions of a society's responsibility to morality or of Legion's admirable but naive world view, it opens up plenty of new ones, which is one of the simplest things about the title that makes it head and shoulders above much other Marvel fare – every issue feels like a middle, just as a serialized story should. X-MEN LEGACY is doing everything right, exploiting the genre to it's fullest but also questioning it at every turn, bringing in big real-world ideas without the corny naivete of most political superhero stories. LEGACY is brilliant and beautiful proof of what the genre can do. Read Full Review

    I continue to sing the praises of this series and I will carry on doing so until it no longer deserves them. For now though, X-Men Legacy is an entertaining, unpredictable read that always offers food for thought and storylines that will have you wracking your brain as you try to work out how they're going to end, only to be completely wrong. Spurrier's plotting and dialogue are hilarious and excellent, and he is definitely on a roll with this title. Read Full Review

    Artist Tan Eng Huat helped make this series what it is: a damn good one. But his artwork has suffered from constant inconsistencies from the very start. However, what Huat lacks in some departments he makes up for in others.X-Men Legacy is, and I really hesitate to use this term, one of the most meta titles in the Marvel line-up. It constant pushes boundaries and bucks convention and Huat takes huge risks as an artist by following that line, so we can forgive him the funky looking face or two when he delivers the solid visuals we see in this issue, like when Pete Wisdom gets a tour of Legion's mind, or when the issue kicks off with an absolute bang.

    The art is also unusually rough in this issue, leading to this weak installment of the series. Tan Eng Huat's normally loopy figures become even more loose and exaggerated, to the point where the sense of perspective is thrown off. Wisdom doesn't even have a consistent appearance in this issue. At times his exaggerated features make him a dead ringer for Bruce Campbell. And as usual, the characters are all drawn with such a harsh, masculine edge as to be almost sexually androgynous. Another visual shakeup in the next arc would do this book some good.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 6, 2013

    While the great ideas shown through the issue shines, some questionable characterization, the divergent focus on some other elements and the uneven art brings the whole issue down a bit. An acceptable issue, yet one that could have been much better. Read Full Review
