    This dialogue heavy issue of X-Men Legacy's 19th issue is nothing to look over. David is really being put in the ringer, and I can't wait to see how he's going to make things better or how he's going to change. Read Full Review

    Legion knows what's coming and tries to explain to Aarusthat they can find another way. I'm dying to see how he fights off this weapon which can kill nearly anything. The big reveal on what the weapon actually is was just about the last thing I would have expected. It's fitting have itintroduced in the realm of the X-Men and I wonder if it will continue to be used down the line. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Nov 10, 2013

    Experimenting a bit with the narrative while moving the book forward, the creative team of Spurrier, Huat, Yeung and Villarrubia manage to give a thoroughly satisfying issue that plays with each of their strengths. A very nice issue overall. Read Full Review

    We all know what to expect from Tan Eng Huat's art at this point. He's great at capturing the more surreal elements of Spurrier's writing, a fact which comes in very handy this month in light of Aarkus' telepathic exposition. But Huat's figures continue to be problematic, between the overly masculine female characters and the general lack of consistency to elements like facial features. These quirks are certainly easy enough to tolerate in light of the overall package, but they also prevent the book from achieving its full potential. Read Full Review

    As X-Men: Legacy races toward its end, I have to savor each new issue. As I said above, its really refreshing to be exposed to a series that not only wholly surprised you as a reader, but has a defined direction from the very start of the story. Every issue has been a new puzzle piece to slot into the one that came before it, and I cannot wait to see the completed piece. We are in for something truly amazing. Read Full Review
