Of all the X titles I think this series is understanding what made the titles work. The character interactions are enjoyable and the story is building nicely. I had my doubts but this Marvel may have finally got the formula right.

X-Men:Red is really proving to be the best X-Men team book going. It is everything an X book is about. The stakes remain high in issue 2. We introduce Gentle and Trinary in this issue and Trinary's introduction will likely get some fan boys complaining but she looks like a great new character. We end the book with a promise of an action packed 3rd issue and I love that Wakanda is the hide out spot more

Wow this is garbage. Jean isn't nearly as hot as she should be. X-23 isn't as dark as she should be. Nightcrawler has no personality. Come to think of it, none of these characters seem to have any personality with the possible exception of the newly introduced Trinary. Honey Badger is an incredibly worthless character. Also, the art sucks.

"Jean isn't nearly as hot as she should be" This sentence alone tells me to stop reading and disregard your review... But like RustonLF suggests, read Gold if this isn't your thing.

Death of X is a storyline that could have been epic. The problem is, it's released at a time where we already know the origins, the results and precisely what is and isn't at stake. Therefore, the epic proportions, the shock and the intrigue are all instantly minimized the moment we hear them. How exciting the terrigen cloud reveal would have been (that it threatens the lives of some of the mutant more

This was actually a pretty good issue, the strongest of the series. Its rare that a finale delivers but this one does - good action, great art, and characters people actually want to see. Its too bad it took 5 issues preceding this to get here, just when it was getting good. Overall 6.9/10 for the series. Fun but only ok.

MegaCity 2 was a strange, bizarre, and cartoony world that did not work for Dredd. I have really enjoyed IDW Dredd (even the Mars Attacks Dredd was fun) but I did not like this series. The art was a mixed bag and the story was confusing and went nowhere really.
