    Apocalypse and the X-Tracts #2takes the purity felt in the first and issue and subverts it here for the reader making this one of the most compelling of the five mini-series thus far. Read Full Review

    A fun story with phenomenal coloring is only held back a small amount by some less detailed distance shots on the illustration. Read Full Review

    All of these events transpire at a reasonable pace that doesn't linger on one event for too long and sets up what'll hopefully be an eventful encounter in the next issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 10, 2019

    Seeley does an excellent job of pasting together an issue out of odd corners of plot that needed to come together in this issue, but it seems to lack enough cohesion to really feel like it has any place on its own outside of the massive machine that is The Age of X-Man. Its doubtless that this series wasnt placed where it was to be filler for the event, but any specific reason for the series to exist has yet to present itself. Read Full Review

    Overall this part of Age of X-Man continues to be a hard pass. It's over simplistic writing with cliche dialogue makes the book really hard to get into. While I feel that this series is important to the overall arcing story, I'm failing to see how impactful it will be to larger story of the event. Read Full Review

    It's hard to know who this series is for, what it's setting out to do and how it really relates to the rest of the titles and that's definitely a bad sign for an event mini. Read Full Review
