    -Men Legacy is so satisfyingly taking big steps but keeping great pacing in each and every issue, providing top-notch story telling all the way, and this issue is no different. Spurrier and Pham continue to dominate the X-Men universe with not Legion, but David Haller. Don't call him Legion. Read Full Review

    There are only a few issues left of Spurriers run. Davids story may end (and Im not sure itll end happily) but it looks as if were going to have one of those classic runs that pulls off the tough feat of ending as strong as it was throughout. Read Full Review

    It's sad to see this book so close to its finale. I've loved that Spurrier has taken a character I couldn't stand and make him one of the most interesting parts of Marvel right now. This is a testament to good story telling and while I'll mourn this book's close, I can't wait to see how it wraps up. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Jan 24, 2014

    X-Men Legacy may only have two issues left to go, but there's everything to play for as David, Ruth, and the rest of the X-Men family head into the final stages of Spurrier's story. There are some events in this issue that do make me wonder if there's going to be an awkward time reversal that sorts everything out, which I'd hope there isn't, but the rest of this series has already shown that Spurrier knows exactly what he's doing, and I, and the rest of the readership I'm sure, will be happy to let him steer this ship into the final port, however destructive and emotionally devastating it may be.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jan 19, 2014

    There might be some slight problems with the art of Khoi Pham and the general use of some characters, yet the focus on the key themes of the series, the culmination of several plot points and the always sharp characterization of David Haller makes this issue a good read despite all that.
