Comic WatchNew Mutants #33 is an emotional, impactful, but also clumsy and abrupt ending, to a run that should have continued and made its trans and queer characters a main part of X-Comics.
ComicBook.comThe story's intent is admirable, and there's at least one good gag, plus the comic-strip style interludes which, while awkwardly placed, are sincerely sweet. However, the execution lacks the polish and depth needed for the story to leave a lasting impression.
You Don't Read ComicsNew Mutants #33 sees the book go out with not a bang, but a whimper. It’s just a disappointing, badly written comic. The story was never better than okay in the previous issues, but Anders’s writing in this one falls off a cliff. The art is better than its been, and the lettering is nice, but if this is the quality of the upcoming series, there’s not much reason to stay with this book.
