    X-MEN RED #7 keeps readers chasing the conflict between the Red team and Cassandra Nova. Not a whole lot comes to fruition, but Taylor's teasing game is successful: we're already excited for X-MEN RED #8. Combined with Carnero's beautiful linework, Taylor's empowering dialogue makes this issue another solid addition to a series that is stunning readers. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 22, 2018

    Time and time again, X-Men: Red proves to be the star of the X-Books ongoing currently. This story has all the heart of the mutants who are truly trying to fight against hate in the most ingenious ways. It's never going to be easy, and there will always be obstacles, but this is what it means to look for peace without falling to violent tactics. I haven't felt this uplifted by an X-Men story in a long time, and that is a crime honestly. Read Full Review

    The covers in this series continue to be knockouts, though this is the first one where Jenny Frison " who also has the next three covers " has taken over for Trevor Charest. A slightly different look, but she still captures that intense feel Charest has been driving home since X-Men Red #1. Read Full Review

    While "X-Men Red" #7 only advances the plot slightly, the issue's unrelenting pace and action sequences are sublime. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Aug 22, 2018

    I can now understand a lot of the hype I’ve heard that has been surrounding X-Men Red these past few months. Even with a returning villain, the comic feels fresh and I can’t wait to read some more. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Aug 23, 2018

    Jean Grey and her team counters this approach by coming to the immediate aide of Sub-Mariner and his city against the Hulk-level threat (Ok . . . maybe not quite Hulk-level). The best thing about this fight was the work that Nezhno Abidemi puts in. After his tragic backstory last issue, I'm really rooting for Gentle to overcome the mental block holding his power back as Jean Grey suggests. You better believe I was grinning after a one-two combo between Gentle and Storm saves the day. Read Full Review

    X-Men Red #7 is arguably the most pedestrian issue of the series so far, but it is a still very good superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 24, 2018

    If you like the Beatles or Yellow Submarine, then I'd suggest picking this up because just like the album and film this feels like an experiment in bringing new ideas to life. Pop on your favourite album by John, Paul, George and Ringo and experience the wonder of this strange work because in the end, to enjoy this" all you need is love. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 24, 2018

    X-Men: Red #7`is the strongest issue to date for this young series. Tom Taylor showed how effective this X-Men team is with how they took out Abomination and saved a plane that was about to crash at the same time. The action created a sense of urgency in the X-Men having to save the day. With how things ended Taylor has set up plenty of story possibilities for X-Men: Red as Jean Grey's team continues to fight an uphill battle to get mutants accepted by the entire world.

    Bounding Into Comics - Phillip Pratt Aug 24, 2018

    Despite my critiques, X-Men Red is currently the best team-book in the franchise. Still, it can stumble over itself. Some of the more underlying themes seem out of place as Taylor attempts to contemporize the narrative. I think it'd be all the better if Taylor handled it closer in the way he does his projects over at DC (check out ‘why Lobo shouldn't have Power Ring'). Art is good, colors could be better – the script is ok, could be more focused. This giant roster of X-Men, half of which have been teammates for years with complex connections to each other, feel almost like strangers. Sadly, Gabby, the darling that she is, seems to be the only one allowed to show signs of life. With that said, X-Men Red continues to display promise. Looking forward to seeing it all come together. Cheers. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 10, 2018

    Tom Taylor is a great writer due in no small part to him being sure to give readers something to enjoy in every issue. This time lots of detailed action sequences that fit the moment of the story, but here that leaves a lot of the heavy lifting to the art team. They absolutely delivered, but it doesn't excuse a somewhat meandering plot. Maybe it's just me getting antsy but I wanted to see a more direct conflict with Nova, instead, we got more mind-controlled British ambassadors hating mutants. I trust Taylor to get things going again, but I'm not going to be a huge fan of another 6 issues of this pace. It needs to pick up.  Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Aug 26, 2018

    X-Men Red #7 is the weakest issue in the series so far, but that doesn't mean that it is a bad issue. At it's worst, this issue is about the same quality as the average modern X-Men book. Hopefully, things will pick back up again next month. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Connor Christiansen Aug 23, 2018

    X-Men Red #7 is an entirely action driven issue, but that becomes a problem when the action is poorly and inconsistently drawn. Read Full Review
