    COMICON - Tony Thornley Dec 12, 2022

    This issue is one of the best single issues of the year, without a doubt. This is what superhero comics should be, and I can't wait the resolution. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 21, 2022

    X-Men Red #9 is an action-packed issue. It has momentum and is just fun to read. It keeps the SWORD part going and combines it with the Arakko plots. The art is mostly great, but there are some character mistakes in the art that range from silly to insulting. Its still an amazing comic, though, and much better than X-Men. Read Full Review

    X-Men: Red features a twist or two with a promising confrontation setup for the next issue.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Dec 7, 2022

    X-Men Red #9 continues where it left off with a newly resurrected Vulcan with his full mental state in order and ready to be emperor again. However, the fights don't really have any tension to them since past issues have undercut any menace Vulcan could've had in the series and Abigail Brand barely has a presence in this comic.
