    Leah Williams gives readers a different, more emotionally in tune version of a superhero comic book with AGE OF X-MAN: X-TREMISTS #3. Poignant dialogue and unique approaches to the Age of X-Man dilemma show readers Williams' talent as a writer firsthand. Although Psylocke and Blob shine as the strongest characters, Moneta proves to be an uncomfortably accurate reflection of modern culture. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 24, 2019

    Williams does well to focus the story on a romance between Psylocke and Blob. The specifics of that relationship add a delightful sense of sophisticated emotional connection that is so often missing from mainstream superhero comics. Read Full Review

    The art by Georges Jeanty is well done but there isnt much to showcase more than furtive glances between Fred and Betsy. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicolas Duncan May 7, 2019

    AGE OF X-MAN: X-TREMISTS #3 is not the best comic book, but it gives the readers something to feel instead of just a cliff-hanger to sell comic the next issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart Apr 29, 2019

    It starts to feel as if this team is relying on a "world without physical prejudice" to avoid ever having to discuss Fred's fatness at all, all while putting the only fat character on the team squarely in the position of being an unexpected emotional sounding board for a woman discussing her disordered relationship with her own body.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Apr 26, 2019

    X-Tremists is a book that's probably bitten off more that it can chew. Halfway through the series, it feels like writer Leah Williams has yet to dive into the themes that she set out to. Read Full Review
