    The comic is a good one and there's more than enough for long time readers and new readers. There's new elements that really move things along and solid writing that catches others up. As a zero issue goes, it does its job and then some. Most importantly it sets the stage for what looks like an interesting event, here's hoping the following issues hold up. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Chris Hassan Nov 30, 2016

    Soule, along with co-writer Jeff Lemire and artist Leinil Yu are talented creators, so I have faith in the quality of IVX beyond #0. But sadly, from a jaded fan perspective, it's hard to see this series as nothing more than the latest bridge between Marvel relaunches. I understand comics is a business, but it's not much fun if the people who buy these series - and have been doing so for countless years - have event endings spoiled by Marvel's marketing team and comic news outlets.

    For those that didn't read Death of X not to worry. This issue will give you all the information you will need to be up to date on the story. This is sure to be a crazy ride so huray up and get on board, and hold on for dear life! Read Full Review

    This is essential reading for those who are not only interested in the upcoming event but also readers who were left reeling from last week's Death of X #4. While the plot is structurally flawed, its character-driven roots are not only commendable but necessary given the insane straddling of two arcs that this issue needs to accomplish. The natural progression of every character into where they need to be for the rest of the series makes the rest of the event much more interesting than it seemed when it was announced.

    Admittedly I rolled my eyes at the prospect of another superhero conflict, but I must say I am now hooked and eagerly awaiting the next volume if the plotting and themes are as smart and organic as IvX #0 suggests then I think we're in for a fun ride. Doubly so considering the Ressurexion event that is on the horizon. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Dec 2, 2016

    The mutants receive a lot more attention in this comic and they're in more danger than the Inhumans, so we're naturally swaying towards Team X-Men, but we'd love for the comic to find the balance between the two, much like the original Civil War event achieved. Read Full Review

    The Source by SuperHeroStuff - Marc Buxton Dec 2, 2016

    There's really not much vs. in Inhumans vs. X-Men, but the setup is electrifying. The reader will sympathize with both sides as Soule presents both factions' points of view with aplomb. I really can't wait for this one to begin. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Dec 5, 2016

    Inhumans vs. X-Men #0 was a very good read. Charles Soules script filled in many of the gaps fans had after Death of X, but still left some plot points dangling for the rest of the series. The art was amazing, but one ouldnt expect anything less with Rocafort and Brown on this book. If Death of X left a bad taste in your mouth, Inhumans vs. X-Men #0 is a good way to rinse out the awful after-taste. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Huck Talwar Dec 9, 2016

    Any fan of Inhumans or X-Men should read this book. Fans of the Marvel Universe alone need to see what chaos is revving up within this so-called "truce." This could be the start to a huge event in the Marvel Universe. If Dr. McCoy and Iso can't figure out how to keep both Inhumans and X-Men alive and safe, this means war. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Dec 2, 2016

    A surprisingly solid buildup to the IvX conflict, handled in a satisfying manner. I may be skeptical of IvX as a whole, but the zero issue was actually pretty good. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 1, 2016

    These days, it's hard to know whether #0 issues are a crucial first chapter in a new series or merely an optional, new reader-friendly primer. IvX #0 is more the latter. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Nov 30, 2016

    In addition, characters not named Emma Frost do little to stand out. As a result, the impact of Inhumans vs. X-men #0 doesn't offer anything novel or groundbreaking—it just reinforces the inevitability and imbalance of a clash between the X-men and the Inhumans. One is poised to thrive. One is poised to die. One has Marvel's unconditional support in the form of movie rights. One remains stuck under the thumb of Rupert Murdoch. At this point, it a sentiment that need not be reinforced. Read Full Review
