    NextGen would have worked quite a bit better on its own outside of the confines of a rigid multi-title event. There are a lot of subtle moments in and within the student body of a totalitarian state run by superhumans that could have carried tremendous impact with this particular group of characters. Too bad it wasnt given a longer timeline. Read Full Review

    Perhaps the most enjoyable of the "Age of X-Man" mini-series,NextGencomes to a fairly bleak ending in preparation for the event finale. Read Full Review

    Well this miniseries did have some good issues! And if we do get X-men books besides the ones that are already been announced, really hope we get Ed Brisson back on to write this young team. That Uncanny run, at one point I was hoping they would kill off these young mutants, but now I enjoy them! Now only did I enjoy this team but also Department X, a team who I have yet to enjoy in their own book. The art really made the issue enjoyable as well! Read Full Review

    Overall this is a very underwhelming close to what was the highlight of Age of X-Man. The final issue was rushed and the mini-series could have done with another issue. Also it feels like the over arcing story plan of Age of X-Man stunted the growth of the mini-series inside the event. This is unfortunate but it is what it is. Read Full Review
