    Despite a decent story, the art for the crossover at times was uneven. That's not to say it wasn't good enough to really make those moments that mattered pop out, but there were many changes that were noticeable and which distracted. Read Full Review

    X-Termination #2 definitely brings closure, but it just goes by so fast that you're not allowed to feel it. Fans of the series involved in this event can at least rest assured that some of their favourite characters will make their way back onto the scene, and that there are some interesting developments coming down the line. As a whole, this event just tried to do too much, had too many characters in it and had too many conflicts to resolve to really be effective. Read Full Review

    The verdict. Fairly entertaining. Nothing special, though. The art was average. Give this a read if you're ever bored. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Apr 26, 2013

    X-Termination #2 continues the crossover's inconsistently among its artwork; including a distorted Dark Beast and expressionless Dazzler within chapter 12. On a brighter note, the ending has a sense of closure, as it serves as a memorial to the fearless X-Terminated fighters who've lost their lives throughout this mess. Also, Lapham doesn't provide an account of what happens to Jean Grey during her battle on New Apocalypse"perhaps she's in line for another AoA spin-off? Either way, X-Terminated #2 may have an anti-climatic feel, but it does serve up finely-tuned closure for the X-Terminated. Read Full Review

    From such a collection of great books I feel that this ending was a bit of a let down, lacked the quality art that each series had, and felt far too rushed. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 25, 2013

    As crossover conclusions go, this one sets a new low for me. I like several of the characters present in "X-Termination" #2, but the fortunate way the story wraps and the price paid is just a little too predictably satisfying. Lapham throws some telegraphed finales our way, but they don't come anywhere near becoming a satisfying read. Nightcrawler gets to go out with a "BAMF!" and that's about the best "X-Termination" #2 has to offer. Read Full Review
