In the wake of one of the most visceral DAREDEVIL, nay, MARVEL stories EVER, the Marvel Universe's New York City stands remade and reforged - if not in Wilson Fisk's image, then at the very least in his spirit! After a battle that nearly tore the city and its citizens apart, New York's super heroes have no choice but to try to adapt to the new and dangerous paradigm they find themselves operating under - with eight million people turned against them!

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker May 23, 2022

    Devils Reign: Omega #1 is a brilliant closing issue. This is partly due to the fact that the creators understand how to transition between the stories. It adequately closes out the big event, allowing the pivotal moments to be wound down with poignant writing yet with a slight twist in the tale. This is not interrupted and is really well orchestrated. But then there is this reset and an escalation of excitement for Cages tenure as mayor. For the amazing journey that this character has been through, to finally end at such a high point, it deserves this spotlight. Read Full Review

    Like Devil's Reign itself, this "Omega issue does a fantastic job of just being entertaining while also being a sly reflection of our reality. At the core throughout the issue is a new elected official being left a mess of an office that he has to fix after it was run by a corrupt individual. Sound familiar? But, beyond that clear parallel, the comic is just entertaining and sets things up nicely for what's to come. If you're interested it's well checking out and a nice coda to the event series.

    The comic's Omega issue sets out to answer many of the loose ends left over by the main storyline and does a pretty adequate job on the front. What's more obvious, however, is that this issue serves much more like a #0 issue than part of the previous tale. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 25, 2022

    Devil's Reign: Omega #1 strengthened the foundation of the new status quo the ending of Marvel's latest big event created. Luke Cage is made to be the star of show with Chip Zdarsky, Rodney Barnes, and Jim Zub establishing how important he will be as the new Mayor of New York City. While nothing new is learned on the Daredevil side of the story there is enough here to build excitement for Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios new journey. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 27, 2022

    Cage's war on the Thunderbolts provides of the issue's back-up stories as he calls on the help of Spectrum to attack one of their warehouses. Cage is also prominently featured in the other back-up story as the new Mayor of New York steps in front of the divided city for his press conference. Both lay groundwork for what is to come, much like Daredevil's main tale, but there's nothing here that can't be missed. Read Full Review
