    I’m pretty excited to see how this X-tinction Agenda compares to the ‘90s version, especially in terms of the art. I can already tell it’s going to be a beautiful rendition of a book that was already good to begin with. This is definitely one to keep your eye on. Read Full Review

    Guggenheim adds some other nice touches, such as a comic nod to the X-Men playing yet another game of pickup baseball, and Wolverine's true feelings about it. Also, some unobtrusive labels for the main characters and their powers is a welcome addition, for those who might not recall or ever read the original "X-Tinction Agenda" story. As lettered and placed by Cory Petit, these labels have minimal impact on Di Giandomenico's layouts but allow readers to focus on the story rather than search their memories (or Google). "X-Tinction Agenda" #1 is what such an event spinoff should be: accessible, enjoyable and able to make readers want more, which all the creators involved do here. Read Full Review

    Overall, Marc Guggenheim conveys a well told and surprising take on the 1990 crossover, with enough winks and jokes to keep things from becoming too dour. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jun 3, 2015

    This issue is the definition of a good, solid issue. Its not spectacular, but its also not anywhere close to being bad. It deals with some very heady, heavy issues and doesnt always nail the right tone or tenor with it, but still manages to get some thoughtfulness peppered here and there. This seems to be as close to an X-Factor book as theres going to be, so it would have been nice to see more members of that core group, but the ones who do return are welcome and the new ones (or are they merely obscure?) have a lot of unrealized potential. In fact the book itself, based on this issue, has a lot of potential. Heres to hoping it gets realized as the title continues. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jun 3, 2015

    X-Tinction Agenda #1 was a pretty good read that feels like a continuation of the original cross over. Marc Guggenheim set up a cool introductory issue that has the potential to be very thrilling. The pencils could use a bit of work, but they shouldnt take you out of the book. Overall this was another great tie-in to Secret War. Read Full Review
