    Comic Booked - Scorpio Moon Feb 3, 2014

    Thumbs up for an X-Men comic that's a commentary on X-Men comics. This series has been complementary and contradictory in creative ways, and so well written, that it will probably end with the kind of surprise you feel like you should have seen coming all along. Even though it is ending soon, I recommend picking this one up, otherwise you're missing out on series that lives up to all the potential of what X-Men comics can be. This is the kind of comic that changes the name of the game, and I'd shatter any future that dared keep me apart from this book. Read Full Review

    At this point, I really hope that Spurrier and company have a twist up their sleeve that allows David and Ruth to enjoy some sort of measure of happiness. Maybe thats too much to ask, and this issue certainly seems to imply that kind of ending is simply impossible for David. But this series has never done the expected, so Im holding out hope. Either way, its been a thoroughly enjoyable ride. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 1, 2014

    There are small flaws in some of the heavy symbolism and the art here and there, yet the powerful message, the always beautiful characterization and the playfulness of Spurrier with the themes of the series makes for a very potent and beautiful issue nonetheless. With such a climax, I cannot wait for the finale. Read Full Review

    I still have hope that Spurrier has tricked us once again as he has constantly done throughout the series. Even if Legion himself doesn't know that there's a way out,I have high hopes that Spurrier has written one for him in a way that will keep the character around, relevant, and give him and Blindfold a shot at an actual future. The problem with Omega level mutants (and in David's case for sure) is that they can be so powerful that it's hard to justify them for being the go to person for resolving issues. Wouldn't it be nice if Spurrier finds a way to deal with that issue into the conclusion as well? Wishful thinking aside, I'm looking forward to seeing how this run comes to a close. My guess is that it'll have something to do with time travel. Read Full Review
