    There's an incredibly rich history of X-Men comics out there and I could probably assemble a stack of recommendations six feet high, but if you distilled those down to a single arc that sparkled with at least some of the promise of each one of those books this is the comic you'd be left with.

    E is for Extinction is not just one of best Battleworld miniseries so far, but one of the best X-Men comics published in years. Morrison may be the source for many of these ideas, but Burnham, Culver, and Villalobos are demonstrating a true mastery of the material. If we're lucky, this won't be the last time we see them all playing with the oddest superheroes in Marvel's stable. Read Full Review

    Burnham and Culver spit out a pretty damned good script here. It is always tough whenever you have a book with a dozen X-Men on-screen at a time. It can be tough to juggle. And while your mileage may not go but so far if you do not immediately recognize some of these characters, you should still enjoy the snappy dialogue. There is a LOT going on here. Read Full Review

    So as for characterization, this is a great book. It hasa lot of other cute little character moments in it and definitely pays respect to its protagonists. And the plot is exciting as well. Until there's a huge cliffhanger/plot twist that just left me completely and utterly confused. Again, I'm not going to give it away, but it's unforeseeable and totally absurd. And it makes me a little bit concerned about the future of this book. Another thing that felt weird about this issue is that it felt more like the finale to a miniseries than like a#2 out of 5. The huge showdown has already taken place, several characters already died. I'm very uncertain as for what's to happen in the next three chapters of this story. But we'll see. Anyhow, generally speaking, this book hits the right tone. As I mentioned back in my review of #1, the art is extremely fitting since it resembles that of Frank Quitely. Read Full Review

    An interesting issue in large part because Xorn is so damn cool. That said it's a bit wonky, Magneto's character shifts dramatically and the pace is slowed down by too much exposition. Read Full Review

    As beautiful as the art is, and as much as I appreciate the nods to one of my favorite eras, this title doesn't offer much of anything new -- something that isn't helped by poorly flowing dialogue. Read Full Review

    Don't get me wrong, I like E is for Extinction. It's refreshing to see a creative team do something weird but this issue loses the themes that were built up in #1. Without that focus to help ground the book, this issue turns into a trippy fight comic that lacks the context to really pack a punch. I even like that the final page reveal comes out of left field. This creative team is keeping us guessing and that's always good. I'm just hoping for the return of a more nuanced approach in #3, as well as a little more influence from Secret Wars.
