    The greatest strength of Leah Williams' script is how much work she puts into complicating the viewpoints of the team and observing the ensuing fallout of the self-believed good guys. She really digs into this via Psylocke and Blob after they have a brief conversation about his romantic feelings towards her, and how that particular can of worms can't ever be sealed back up.

    Leah Williams brings complex characterization and an enthralling, romance-lined plot in AGE OF X-MAN: X-TREMISTS #2! Fred and Betsy steal the show with emotional dialogue and moving monologues that most readers probably aren't expecting. Artistically, the issue falls short due to distorted facial expressions and, more generally, a misguided choice in penciller and colorist. Read Full Review

    This issue shows the building blocks for a compelling side story, and it's worth checking out to see what they do with three more issues. Read Full Review

    Overall this book is is a lot better than the last. There is a lot more characterization and drama in this book which helps to pull the reader in. It's not perfect but still an enjoyable read. Psylocke and the Blob really shine above all the others in this book. I think this one could finally get interesting and so for that I recommend checking it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicolas Duncan Apr 13, 2019

    Overall, rating this book is purely difficult, because it depends on the readers expectations and interpretation of storytelling and character build-up. If you are a fan of a given character(s) and can keep an open mind, I recommend this book. Otherwise, it may not be for you. Read Full Review
