    "Age of X-Man: Omega" #1 is a great send-off for The Age of X-Man and for this era of X-Men. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Vishal Gullapalli Jul 17, 2019

    Age of X-Man: Omega #1 is a satisfying, complete conclusion to a great event, and does a great job tying up most of the threads of the event while still leaving a lot of potential for stories about its fallout. Read Full Review

    Taken as a whole, this was the conclusion of an excellent experiment. One which, I hope, will not be completely erased by Hickman's upcoming venture in the Land of X. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Jul 22, 2019

    Age of X-Man Omega (2019-) #1 has the large task of wrapping up the multiple storylines that make up the Age of X-Man event, but does so in a satisfying way, with fantastic art and coloring. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jul 17, 2019

    AGE OF X-MAN: OMEGA is an effective final chapter. Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson are an extremely effective creative duo with an interesting angle on Marvel's beloved mutants. Read Full Review

    Well, the book obviously had its ups and downs. I enjoyed the dialogue and liked how we got to see everyone from the books. But at the same time, I would have preferred more characters from NextGen and X-Tremists. The issue felt like a nice closure but at the same time, wow! The art was not that good! Juan Frigeri should have been on art. Would not recommend this book at all if you are not caught up on all of the Age of X-Man books. Read Full Review

    We're all excited to see where the X-Men go next, but don't skip out on Age of X-Men: Omega. Read Full Review

    All of the "Age of X-Man" stories coalesce into Age of X-Man: Omega. Considering Nate Grey's outlook on the X-Men's never-ending cycle of violence, it's fitting that the climax of the event is a philosophical debate rather than a knockdown, drag-out battle. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jul 17, 2019

    Overall would I recommend Age of X-Man? Parts of it I would. Read the synopsis of each mini-series and pick the one that peaks your interest. Reading them all I find get so messy and with conflicting styles of each book it becomes unnecessary to read everything. Several of the books don't even intertwine with the others. That being said with how Omega ended, giving no real weight to the x-universe one could skip it altogether and not miss anything. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 17, 2019

    On the whole, a project the size of The Age of X-Man is an excellent idea. Projects SHOULD be this ambitious.  For all its faults, The Age of X-Man DID dazzle with its possibility. This conclusion casts glances at what might have been. The opening monologue has the title character lamenting how something so ambitious as a whole new world quickly grew too big for him to be able to handle. Thompson and Nadler might have been talking about the Age of X-Man event with that opening monologue as well. Reach for a huge achievement, and you might fall victim to it. Read Full Review
