    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Nov 4, 2016

    This isn't a bad series - the art is strong and the story is building toward - something - but it feels like this series is just moving pieces into place to set up the next story (no doubt all-out war between the races) which will be the next big "event." Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Nov 15, 2016

    This is the strongest instalment in the four-part series, but that's not necessarily a huge feat. We're interested to see how the series transitions into the Inhumans Vs. X-Men story, and finding out if it was worth reading. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Hassan Nov 2, 2016

    Let's hope Death of X #4 makes up for these minor missteps and doesn't meet the same fate as Cyclops (who I predict doesn't die and is instead captured by the Inhumans so he can return in time for Marvel's "Ressurxion" relaunch – not spoilers, just my theory (you read it here first!)).

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 4, 2016

    Death of X #3 is the strongest chapter in this four part series and I'm excited to see how this transitions fully into IvX. Soule, Lemire, Kuder, Garron and the rest of the crew have my attention…here's hoping issue #4 sees an Inhuman giving Cyke the business end of a new power for a few pages. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 2, 2016

    Death Of X #3 was a slow burn, but it at the very least gets you to look forward to how this concludes. That next issue is it, and from there it is anyone's choice whether they want to care what is being done to the X-Men anymore or not. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Nov 7, 2016

    While this may be the weakest issue so far, Death of Xcontinues to provide legitimately interesting storytelling and shows how smallmistakes or misunderstandings can lead to large conflicts between two groups ofpeople. This issue had some problems and I'm afraid that they final act will berushes and predictable. However, I'm still very excited for the conclusion ofthis series and I can't recommend it enough so far.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 2, 2016

    I said it with the first issue, I'm waiting for the end to really see how it all ends. This has been a rather odd miniseries to read as we know where things are and this fills in the gap. Who lives? Who dies? That's the questions this answers and the main draw for me. And in the end, it's all prequel for the event series to come next. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 2, 2016

    Death of X was always limited by the fact that it's taking place well before the rest of the X-Men line, and these past two issues have done little to offset that problem or build a compelling conflict between the X-Men and Inhumans. Apart from the growing Cyclops mystery and Aaron Kuder's pages, this series isn't doing much to set the stage for an exciting finale. Read Full Review
