    The Rainbow Hub - Emma Houxbois Oct 1, 2015

    As dark as the history, and in some sense, the present of superhero comics are, they remain a vital artistic and storytelling tradition that are steeped in incredible legacies. When a story like E is for Extinction comes around that brings such a uniquely placed team together it serves to remind us that legacy and homage aren't just more polite terms for plagiarism or conservatism. In fact, one of the miniseries' greatest legacies may be that it offers a clear and engaging entry point into the symbolic structure of Grant Morrison's major comics work from Kid Eternal and The Doom Patrol through to New X-Men and Batman. E is for Exegesis, one might say. Read Full Review

    That being said, Id love to see all involved in future books at Marvel, even if it isnt X-Men. Chris Burnham and Dennis Culver have an eclectic story going on, and Ramon Villalobos is easily one of the best artists to have taken a crack at a Secret Wars tie-in. This book deserves more press than it got, and hopefully itll be appreciated in the days to come. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Thomas Crawford Oct 5, 2015

    Now that this event is over, odds are a lot of these characters will go back on the shelf, but it was fun watching this team take their turn playing with them, and hopefully they'll be moving on to tell great stories elsewhere in the Marveluniverse. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Oct 1, 2015

    Chris Burnham, Dennis Culver, and Ramon Villalobos's madcap homage to Grant Morrison's New X-Men comes to a conclusion with this issue, and one can't help but marvel at everything those creators were able to pack into four issues. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Kyle Pitman Oct 1, 2015

    E is for Extinction #4 is a great read if you enjoy your superheroes a little darker and delirious. Clones, possession, keeping a brain alive " this series has it all, but this specific issue is not a jumping on point. If this review piqued your interest, I highly recommend you go back and re-read from the beginning. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Marius Thienenkamp Oct 6, 2015

    Nevertheless, E IS FOR EXTINCTION #4 is a solid finale to this book, especially because of the framing and the Charles/Cassandra leitmotif. Still, this series was far from perfect, since it didn't really work as a parody, but neither as serious book since it lacked impact. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Oct 1, 2015

    This is a disappointing end to a promising series. The first three issues were interesting, but unfortunately pacing problems and a bad ending ruin this issue. The art was serviceable, but could use a bit of improvement in some areas. Overall this is a series that will fly under the radar and probably be forgotten. Read Full Review
