    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 24, 2022

    X-Men Red #7 is a clinic in how Ewing has made this book a cut above the rest. A reader may look at the cover and expect a big dumb spectacle, like this was Duggans X-Men, but what they get is so much better. Caselli, Blee, and Sifuentes-Sujo do an amazing job bringing the script to life, making the whole thing work. From beginning to end, this issue is a tour de force. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Oct 5, 2022

    This was an astonishing story, told with passion, skill, and more than a measure of contemplative thought. This story reminds us of what comics can do, what they can be, as an art form. This series stands tall amidst the rubble of lesser attempts, promising something entirely better. Read Full Review

    The ways in which that reshuffling of the Great Ring unfold are every bit as inventive and surprising as Ewing has made past conflicts. Individual powers and logic problems are addressed with cleverness that can't help but draw attention to itself. Read Full Review

    Al Ewing and Stefano Caselli do a wonderful job handling Magneto's death and Isca The Unbeaten previous betrayal. Both showcase what has made X-Men: Red one of Marvel's best comic books is the emotional connection with every character on this title.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Oct 5, 2022

    X-Men Red #7 directly follows up after the events of A.X.E.: Judgment Day #5 and shows the fate of Magneto and the people of Arakko. On top of that, it resolves the matter of Isca The Unbeaten and her betrayal, brief as it was, but the encounter proves to be both intriguing and anticlimactic. However, the ending does bring the promise of something better and certainly more exciting happening in the next issue. Read Full Review
