    If you have been following along with the Age of X-Man books then you know what you are in store for. As well, this is by far the best of the Age of X-Man books with an ending that makes me excited for the Omega special. The positives to this issue is that it has some great artwork, great action scene, and great dialogue. Only downside is that not enough from Dani and Gabby. My recommendation would be buy this issue and even when it comes out in trade, buy the trade for a friend. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 3, 2019

    The big finale to the series feels a bit abrupt when it all comes to rest in the final panel, but it IS leading to the significant conclusion in the last issue in a very compelling way. Taken as a part of the larger run of the Age of X-Man, Prisoner X might emerge as the most satisfying corner of the event, but on its own, it feels more than a little lacking. With Prisoner X Ayala, Peralta and Horak do an excellent job of telling a solid story that almost has an ending. Too bad the story isnt over at issues end. It feels too modular to be 100% satisfying.

    Overall Prisoner X packs a knock out punch that we so needed. It's a great action packed issue and gets us ready and excited for Age of X-Man Omega. This is a must read for sure. Read Full Review

    A rather predictable end to an otherwise quite well-constructed series,Age of X-Man: Prisoner X #5simply suffers from being tied to a larger event. Read Full Review
