    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Sep 26, 2018

    X-Men: Red #8 was an issue I honestly had to read twice. Not because there was anything I missed or misunderstood, but because this was such a brilliant climax to everything this series has been built towards so far. Their objectives mattered, their sacrifice, their bravery, and their trust in each other to do what it took without crossing a line. This could only be matched with the right villain to push all the right buttons. Cassandra continued to be one of the most despicable villains in the X-Books till the very end. Read Full Review

    X-MEN RED #8 maintains a tense, tightly-wound narrative that has us on the edge of our seats with each turn of the page. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 26, 2018

    Taylor does a great job of making everyone on the team a necessary part of this mission and they all work together so well on the page. I really enjoy the direction this series is taking, especially with Nova as the main villain. Their clashes resonate on so many levels that the struggle never feels boring or clich. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Sep 28, 2018

    My one knock on the issue was Trinary's monologue about all the hate on the internet that she's protected the world from. I don't have a problem with her mentioning it in general, but it seemed a bit forced here. Kind of messed with the flow of things. The X-Men are always great about social consciousness, but it's their subtle way about it that I've always appreciated. This was a bit too on the nose, but a small piece in another good X-Men Red issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Sep 30, 2018

    Taylor and Carnero have a good dynamic of visuals and dialogue that tell a compelling story. There are a couple of insane spreads of Trinary and Storm's apexes of awesomeness. With an ending of Blue and Gold for the classic Uncanny X-Men and X-Men titles it is unclear whether this socially relevant flavor of X-Men will stay with us for long but I hope the hell it does.

    It may not be the series' best installment, but it's still pretty darn good. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Connor Christiansen Sep 26, 2018

    X-Men Red #8 is still an entertaining issue, but fails to be the climatic epic it strives to be due to weird pacing and an off-brand conclusion to the nanite problem. Read Full Review
