    COMICON - Scott Redmond Aug 13, 2021

    Children of the Atom closes out its short but powerful run with one of the best issues to truly dig into every part of the X-Men as a metaphor for marginalized groups idea. Stunning powerfully emotive artwork and character moments have been the strength of this series and that continues to be the case with the final issue. This series is truly a must-read for anyone that is an X-Men or comic book fan. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 11, 2021

    Children of the Atom #6 finishes the series with the best issue. This is the chapter that truly gives this miniseries a soul. As relationships are tested and identities are discovered, the book explores important themes in a way that will blow readers away. Ayalas script is powerful and touching and the art is incredible. This is a fantastic comic for young adults. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Aug 11, 2021

    Children of the Atom #6 is a perfect ending to a great book. The only bad thing about it is that it is the last issue. Ayala and company have created something exceptional with this book, and it's a shame to see it go. It's been an achievement its entire run, and if readers are lucky, it'll come back.

  • 3.0 - Chase Magnett Aug 11, 2021

    The notion of five teens challenged by notions of identity and growth remains an alluring premise, especially within X-comics, but Children of the Atom failed to provide an effective focus for those characters and the finale shatters any illusion that they were much more than feel-good wish fulfillment. Alas. Read Full Review
