Uncanny X-Men #05 Review

by Ryan.L on December 12, 2018

Writer: Mathew Rosenberg, Kelly Thompson, Ed Brisson
Artist: R.B. Silva
Publisher: Marvel Comics


Things have been starting to get intense in the recent issues of Uncanny X-Men. Nate Grey and his Horsemen continue to try to save the world but their methods are questionable. Jean and the X-Men battle to stop them, while trying to find out what is truly going on.

This issue things really start to pick up and this series really feels like an Uncanny X-Men issue. The X-Men are still in the thick of battle with X-Man's horsemen while X-Man, Kitty Pryde, and Apocalypse debate how to save the world. By the end of this issue some decisions are made that will change everything. One of these decisions blew me away and I'm worried what the repercussions will be.

I loved this issue a lot. As i said it really felt like an Uncanny X-Men issue and I think this team has really found their groove now. There is so much action, drama, and comedy throughout the entire issue. The shocking revelations in this issue actually felt shocking and have me excited for next weeks issue. At first I was worried that the release schedule was going to be hard and the quality was not going to be able to stay at a level that we expect. I couldn't be more wrong and very happy to say that the quality seems to be increasing with each issue.

Another thing that really shines in this issue is the art work. So far out of all five issues of Uncanny this one is the best in my opinion. R.B. Silva really captured the excitement and drama in every page. His splash pages really stood out as well and that last page just blew me away completely! 

While we are now heading into Age of X-Man, Uncanny has really gotten me excited for that event. I highly recommend this book to any x-fan and to anyone who wants to get into the X-Men. While the series may have started off a little shaky, this issue is amazing and really is a ride that you need to jump onto and enjoy. Pick this one up, trust me it's worth it!
