    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 19, 2022

    Devils Reign: X-Men #1 is an excellent tie-in. In the main book, the involvement of the X-Men was teased, but it was difficult to know how they could get included. Duggan uses a very clever method of not only connected the characters to the event but adding a powerful arc uniting many of the events crucial figures. There is a great script that depicts a story with several layers to it and Notos art is simply stunning to behold. Read Full Review

    A retcon that could have easily gone badly clicks. The story is compelling and the art is fantastic. A compelling addition to the tapestry of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review
