    Once again, "The Omega Men" #7 blows its competition out of the water. With each new issue connecting with what's come before it so well, it makes an eventual re-read of the entire series that much more appealing. King, Bagenda, Guara and Fajardo are in the midst of creating a near-perfect space epic with "The Omega Men," that rare book that any fan of the genre should buy. Read Full Review

    The Omega Men has a fairly traditional escape installment here that's made fantastic in its actual execution. With beautiful visuals in both character and backgrounds " those backgrounds! " and a very smooth flow in how the panels are laid out, it's so easy to be caught up in this book with what it's attempting to do that you just enjoy the singular aspects while also taking in as a part of the whole work that King and company are crafting here. Giving the majority of the focus to Kyle and Kalista definitely works here " I practically want a Kalista solo book if I can't have a weird one of the two of them together " and I love how it all comes back together at the end with enough time to really up the anticipation for what's to come. Fantastic stuff across the board here. Read Full Review

    The Omega Men continues to impress as it begins its second arc. Kyle Rayner becomes much more of a presence in the book. The Omega Men is still a smart, funny, and thrilling story with some fantastic art. There is a reason why this book is on so many best of lists for this year and you would be a fool to not check it out. Oh, and when will DC every give Tom King a Green Lantern book? That just seems like a match made in heaven. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kevin McConnell Jan 1, 2016

    Much to my surprise, this is a very dense story with a strong, if subtle, commentary on religion and politics. In my reviews for Marvel, I have noted how much I enjoy when Marvel takes a leap of faith to spice things up. While I personally feel DC does not do that enough, "The Omega Men" is an excellent example of how it does work. Strangely, this book does not seem to sell well enough for DC. I cannot speak to the reason, but I am puzzled as to why exactly. I understand to those reading this, this is issue #7, is it worth it? I will say absolutely, without question, it is worth the leap. For someone who knew little about the book, I was very impressed by how well it plays out. It is very easy to see why this made many best of list in 2015. And it appears the same accolades will follow in 2016. Read Full Review

    For what seems like the seventh issue in a row,Omega Men is an absolutely excellent story. Month in, month out, it is near the top of critics' scores. Each issue delicately connects various strings from previous issues, taking full advantage of a serial format. This creative team is achieving a rare feat, of telling a riveting, near-perfect space opera that only comics can rightfully do . . . even with Kyle Rayner in the lead role. Read Full Review

    So a bit of a weird way for The Omega Men to end 2015 on but while I wasn't a fan of some storytelling choices one can't deny the high quality that both King and Bagenda continue to put out. Plus it seems that after several months of cool and interesting setup, 2016 will see the conclusion of this series. Read Full Review

    I only recently started reading Omega Men and had to visit a few shops to find all the back issues but after catching up to this current issue, I have to say this might just be more enjoyable than Jason Aaron's Star Wars run if only slightly. With Star Wars you have more well-known characters and a whole universe already established which is good because you are familiar with a lot of the story elements but it sets up parameters and limits surprises because you already know what it all comes down to since it's canon to the movies now. With Omega Men, you don't really know what the endgame is and what it could potentially build up to. With Rayner assuming a new role, he provides the familiar face in unfamiliar territory. So far it's been a wild ride and not everything is explained yet but I have a feeling there's going to be a good payoff now that DC has decided to extend the run.
