    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Nov 8, 2018

    There is little else I can say about X-Men Red #10 without giving the game away. Suffice it to say, if you're a fan of Marvel Comics in general, you need to check out this issue, even if you don't normally read X-Men Red. It is that good! Read Full Review

    Taylor is doing a great job of making the story both fun for the reader and unpredictable to fans. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Nov 7, 2018

    This week's issue of X-MEN RED metaphorically checks all the boxes for me. Taylor includes characters that we haven't seen before and broadens the series' horizons. The art, while not perfect, does a good job giving the series' star, Jean Grey, the spotlight. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 7, 2018

    X-Men: Red #10 was another masterpiece of an issue for this series. It is moving to see an X-Men book where there is another option to saving the world and mutants where you don't have to either become like Xavier or Magneto. They aren't the only figureheads to aspire to become. Jean represents option C and does it marvelously. The rules did not really change for Jean, not when her rules involved breaking the one rules that has honestly up to this point has set mutants back. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Connor Christiansen Nov 8, 2018

    X-Men Red #10 feels like a return to form for the series, gracefully and pointedly commenting on and analyzing the world outside our windows and the chaos of it all. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Nov 7, 2018

    A strong script piles up tremendous storm clouds in X-Men: Red #10. As stimulating as the ideas are, the visuals make it clear that those clouds aren't ready to burst yet. This issue does an excellent job of building tension and pushing the larger story forward. It lacks the artistic polish and decisive action it would need to be truly great on its own, though.

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Nov 7, 2018

    Tom Taylor's script starts slow here, but before the end, he's managed to toss out another big, ridiculous idea that no one was likely to have seen coming and that will have will have fans ready for the big finish. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Nov 8, 2018

    This issue didn't have a lot going on, but had just the right amount of moments to make up for that. All of it is building up for what should be a pretty intense X-Men Red #11. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Nov 9, 2018

    Despite meandering on topics that might be over-discussed at this point, Taylor, Antnio, Beredo and team continue to display one of the more complex series for Marvel's X-Men in recent years, with an art package that wastes little frills in favor of concise narrative flow. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Nov 9, 2018

    To Tom Taylor's credit, even as X-Men: Red conclusion draws nearer, he's still finding way to add additional wrinkles to the work's subtext. Read Full Review

    We have come to the second to last issue of this brilliant series. There is not much else that can be said for how good Tom Taylor has written this story. Red has been the best example of what an X-men story could be and the fact of the matter is that Tom Taylor should be continuing this story and X-Men Red into the relaunch of Uncanny X-men.

    Taylor will have written a tight character journey of a team of mutants that bring in allegory to real-world issues of bigotry, immigration, and nationalism. Taylor gives his story a sense of context within the Marvel universe by having other characters of major importance and even with subtle moves tells us where in the ongoing story that is Marvel that this book takes place.

    I still really enjoy this series. Throwing Tony Stark in there just made it even better.

    It is a really great comic, but I hate the way that She-Hulk is painted.

    For a villain we have been dealing with since issue 1, the pace to move to the next villain is going by very slowly. Too much dialogue and extra scenes that were not needed.

    -Pretty good art. It suits the series for sure.

    THE BAD:

    -The characters are still not at all compelling. Right now they're just people doing things, they lack personality. Honey Badger has her moments, but I just can't connect with anybody in this issue.

    -The storyline is dull and uninteresting. The plot itself just feels like its been done but better.

    -I don't like how they shoehorned in both Tony Stark and the Avengers.
