    In the end, Exodus brings the battle to a close and sets the stage for both "Nation X" and Dark Reign: The List. As I said, there aren't a whole lot of surprises to be had on either front. It remains to be seen how Fraction steers Uncanny from this point and whether he can truly make good on his promise to take the team in a direction they've never been before. But, if nothing else, Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men was a good start to what could be better times for the oldest and most uneven of X-books. Read Full Review

    With so many characters and three months of build-up, "Exodus" could easily have imploded under its own weight, but Matt Fraction and his trio of artists don't just pull it, they surpass expectations. "Utopia" may have been slow-moving at times, but the conclusion is strong and leaves both the X-Men and the Dark Avengers in different, unexpected places than they were when the story began.

    Deodato and Dodson offered the type of visual that makes one wish the story read could last forever. It was just fun to see the potential fights and the various set ups. Some of it was confusing though and may have something to do with the large cast used in this comic book. Nonetheless, its still something worth collecting. Read Full Review

    A solid effort although I hope this means the X-Men franchise will be able to get along for a while without an overarching crossover. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 11, 2009

    This is a fun actionpacked comic with some cool fights and interesting character moments, but it is completely betrayed by an absurd choice in art teams and the fact that nothing really happens despite the $3.99 price point. There is potential for more awesomeness here, especially given the strong effort from the creative teams, but ultimately you can probably get away with stopping after the last issue of the crossover.
