    Claremont and Larroca continue with their wild ride with the X-Treme X-Men team running roughshod with some new faces, as well as the anti-mutant hate group, Purity, continues to demonstrate close to the Belles of Hell Bar. The comic reads like its 2004, and Im really enjoying it. Theres a couple missteps, but this feels like a return of classic Claremont. Read Full Review

    To summarize, X-Treme X-Men #2 is simply ghost-tracking, off-panel solutions, and one showdown with a jacked-up bodybuilder. The story lacks character depth and assumes that readers know all the background details before diving in, which isnt always necessarily a bad thing. However, in the premise that is X-Treme X-Men #2, I feel like more context other than issue one would have been helpful. Additionally, with the busy nature of the issue, it felt like the characters were all extremely surface-level. Nevertheless, it was Larroca and GURU-eFX who helped salvage the issue with some incredibly crisp and vibrant art that kept this reviewer entertained enough to the end. Nonetheless, I highly recommend adding much more action to a title thats meant to be X-Treme before you lose readers fast. Read Full Review

    It's better than almost all of what appeared in X-Treme X-Men's pages during the second half of its run, meaning anyone who found anything to enjoy in that original series will likely find something to appreciate here. Read Full Review
