    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Apr 27, 2016

    The Omega Men #11 is a perfect example of when a writer and a artist work together to tell a beautiful story that touches boundaries of religion, politics, our own personal aspects of what drives us each and every morning. Nothing else that DC puts out compares to what The Omega Men has done, now all we have left are the swan song. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 28, 2016

    The Omega men is a powerful work when taken in small monthly doses and I can only imagine it being an even more powerful work when read in full. I'm excited to see how the finale plays out but also saddened that there won't be opportunities for future exploration by this team with the structures they've created. King and Bagenda have seeded some fascinating and intriguing material into the DC Universe that elevates it as a whole, putting the galactic stage on a very different level. While I suspect few, if any, will get to play with it depending on how Rebirth goes, this is a strong and self contained storyline that is a must-read that belongs on every comic readers shelf to remind of just what the medium can do with familiar characters long thought to be outdated by the years.

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld May 1, 2016

    It's a shame this comic is ending with the next issue; I would have loved to see what other stories King and Bagenda could tell with this cast of characters. With all of the Omega Men converging on the Citadel's Viceroy, it's clear there is to be no pat solution to the war in Vega. But when the Omega Men inevitably come into conflict with each other, who will win out? I don't think I've ever had less idea of what's going to happen in the final issue of a series, and I can't wait to find out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Papi Nacho May 3, 2016

    I've been reviewing this series for four issues now and I think that I've made it pretty clear that this is one of my favorites (probably the best in the entire DC YOU). This issue proves why. The motivations behind every character (large or small) are extremely clear, the progression of the plot is natural and everything ties back to the themes of ambiguity and governance. Sure, Kyle finding some random "Space Diamond" was stupid, but I can forgive it in the large scheme of things. This series truly defines the term space opera and for that it earns a....

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 28, 2016

    There's a strong sense of fatalistic doom driving this issue forward. Rather than focusing on the epic scope of the war, writer Tom King is more interested in exploring the futility and inevitability of war in general. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 2, 2016

    I'm really going to miss King, Bagenda and Fajardo's work together, and hopefully it won't be too long until they create something else. While "The Omega Men" #11 might not be full of jolts and surprises like some previous issues -- and to be fair, with the stage needing to be set for the conclusion, I'm more than fine with that -- it's still a satisfying read that makes me eager to see how everything wraps up next month. That's a sign of talented storytellers. Read Full Review

    In this issue of Omega Men Tom King elects to focus on character and in doing so makes the world the Omega Men inhabit all the more compelling. This is a book that any Kyle Rayner, Green Lantern, or fan of DC comics should have in their shelf. The end is slowly encroaching upon us in this penultimate chapter The Omega Men have begun executing their plan and however this ends it will be one hell of a conclusion.

    Tom King did a great job with this book, and Barnaby Bagenda did really solid work with this series’ art. this issue is setting up the big finale for next issue, and it does so pretty well. i would have liked a bit more story, and i would have liked it to feel like it didn’t fly by so quickly to drop us off at the ending, but other than the pace just feeling a bit rapid, this was a really good book. the story moves along, showing each of the Omega Men taking their places in this massive space war, and we even see Kyle Rayner doing a few things that are typically out of character for him. I enjoyed the way this book took us on a journey, one that entirely kept itself separate from the rest of the DC Universe, and just let us explore an otherwise unknown section of life. i like the cast of characters in this book, and i really hope that this isn’t the end for all of them, because i would like to see them pop up from time to time in other Green Lantern or DC intergalactic stories in the future. This book, along with Deathstroke and Secret Six, are probably the only three books of the post-Convergence stories that i have read each month and actually enjoyed reading, no matter what. i would almost count Grayson, but that book felt so separate from the rest of the DC Universe (to the point it picks and chooses what current stories to attach itself to and when- like Eternal). but this series will be something i am sure DC will be sorely missing once Rebirth happens, because it was just so unique and so well done.

    You wake up in the morning and the first then you do is go take your morning piss. Once you are finished, you go to the sink and wash your hands and splash a little water in your face to shake off the cobwebs. The water drips from both your hands and face. There is no towel near you, so shake your hands in an attempt to dry them. Next, you take those very hands and use them to dry your face. Once you remove them from your face, you see your reflection in the mirror. You are Tom King- the best writer in comics today. You got a busy day ahead you. You have dozens of story arcs to write for the dozens (or at least half a dozen) comics you are penning. But moreover, you have your business to attend to, you have to sign new exclusive contracts; you have to prepare yourself to take over the reigns and direction of one of the most important and iconic characters of the medium. You, Tom King, have a lot on your plate. And with so much on your plate, you are bound to have a little slip, a little hiccup every now and then. But it's o.k., you are human. You are Tom King.
