    “All will become clear.” a voice in David's head whispers, and that's certainly something to constantly remind yourself in X-MEN LEGACY – new clues, characters and concepts are continually added, but it feels as if our story is just beginning. Spurrier has been deconstructing and challenging our established ideas of the X-mythos, all while telling a very personal and political story; a young man's mission for self-dependence, and a sprawling, satirical journey of contemporary America. X-MEN LEGACY is that special book that we've all been waiting for; it's that identity that our generation has been asking for; it's our DOOM PATROL, our secret hidden treasure published among a mass of mainstream adventure stories, a complicated, original, funny and touching comic, unlike anything you've ever read. Spurrier, Huat, Yeung and Villarrubia…”the world SALUTES you.” Read Full Review

    It is a lot to ask but each issue seems to give us more than enough to love. Villarrubia does an amazing job with the Psychophere scenes, giving it exactly the sort of trippy, mind-bending qualities that you would expect. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 27, 2013

    Tan Eng Huat's artwork suffers more than usual from his tendency towards exaggerated anatomy and bizarre perspective. That's despite the fact that much of the issue takes place against a surreal, colorful background of psychic energy. The jilted perspective just doesn't contribute anything to the story. And the characters become almost sexually androgynous at times thanks to the distorted facial features. In theory, Huat is perfectly suited to this type of series, but his style needs to show more restraint. Read Full Review

    If you enjoy a heavy dash of 'weird' with your super-heroics like me, then "X-Men Legacy" #8 is a good jump-on point for this series. I recommend you take the opportunity to do so. Read Full Review
