    This is what you get when masters in the genre put their heads together: a brutal, exquisite book that left me bruised, exhausted, and seeping blood in a gutter. And I cannot wait to enter the fray again with the next issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 23, 2022

    X-Men Red #6 is fantastic. Its weird to read this book and think that X-Men sells more than it. Ewing is showing why he deserves his reputation as one of Marvels best, and Caselli and Blee make it all look amazing. Judgment Day has been full of great tie-ins, and this issue is yet another gem.

    Comic Crusaders - C.V.R. The Bard Sep 20, 2022

    The foray into the romantic side of fanfic is successful in this issue because it is balanced so well with the violence and inevitable doom that the mutants face throughout this event, but here Ewing and Casselli have turned "X-Men Red into the frontlines and I don't believe the Arakkians would have it any other way.

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 14, 2022

    Al Ewing does it again with X-Men: Red #6 as an excellent example of how superheroes, once old, can feel new again. Not only does he further form a team of Arakko mutants by the final page, but he establishes there is strength in teamwork as a nation once seeing collaboration as a weakness rise up and come together.

    Final Thoughts:X-Men Red #6 continues to show the Arakkii mutants' defenders fend off against the war machines of the Eternal Uranos. Like previous issues, Magneto and his fight steal the show for most of the comic in terms of action, dialogue, and art. There is an explanation for his current state of being, but readers' mileage will vary on whether or not they buy it. Read Full Review
