    Moreso than ever, I'm happy to see DC stick by their decision to publish the full run of King's work here, despite the initial issues receiving a less than warm welcome on the stands. It's still not too late to pick up the back issues of this book, one of comics smartest, most exciting, and unconventional new series and a strong contender for the best new book of 2015.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 27, 2015

    The Omega Men turn in another strong and striking sequence with what it does here in exploring the characters and advancing the larger storyline incrementally and in big ways. The physical progress is definitely nicely done as it really does move us around the quadrant and it balances that with some great character material as we get to know who these people are and what their real goals are. I'm hugely intrigued to see where it will end up going and what twists are ahead. Though King gets the plugs for the story and the pacing of it, the work done by Bagenda here is once again phenomenal. I just can't help but to love what he puts into every panel on every page with the detail and the beauty of how the colorists bring it out even more. There's something magical about this book as it feels a lot more like comics for grown-ups than I expected it to be. It's handily winning me over each issue and has me wishing that there were a few more books from DC like this to savor. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Nov 27, 2015

    The Omega Men continues to be one of the best new parts of the DCYou line. It creates a story that feels so unforgiving it's hard to imagine one of the Big Two ever daring to do it, especially when Kyle Rayner, a major staple of the Green Lantern franchise, is chucked around like a rag doll. It's hard to find books that really capture the time they were made in. The Omega Men shows the madness involved with crises of faith and militarized oppression. The heroes, if they could even be called such, are not the most likeable or sympathetic but they're without a doubt the lesser evil compare to the government they're fighting. There's very few comics that leave one anticipating the next instalment. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 30, 2015

    Tom King takes advantage of this book's second life by giving us one of the better issues of the story to date.  It's full of reveals, tension and one of the craziest cliffhangers you will likely get in a while. While I have really enjoyed this series, even I questioned why it continued.  After this issue, I think know why. Read Full Review

    This issue of The Omega Men was the most action centered than previous issues, but because of previous emotional groundwork the battle has actual weight and consequences to it. I'm glad The Omega Men isn't going anywhere this is a story more sci-fi fans need to be reading this series. Read Full Review
