    The Rainbow Hub - Emma Houxbois Aug 27, 2015

    Along with Fight Club 2 and Black Canary, E is for Extinction has one of the sharpest and most exciting creative teams going. I definitely don't want this title to get extended because whatever they have planned for a finale is probably going to be the biggest mic drop on an X-Men comic ever, but I do want to see Burnham, Culver, Villalobos, and Herring get back together when it's over.

    This is one of the strongest books on the shelf this week and just goes to show that sometimes embracing the over-the-top, weird tendencies that a property has can make for good reading. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Thomas Crawford Sep 1, 2015

    As a thoughtful examination of Marvel's Mutant's, E is for Extinction is a breath of fresh air, encouraging the reader to ask: what's so great about the X-Men? As a superhero fight comic, though, this creative team is still evolving (Not sorry!). Read Full Review

    This is a brilliant issue, in terms of both writing and art. I am so excited to see where Burnham and Culver are going to take this series. It’s getting really intense right now, so whatever they have planned to wrap up this series is going to be brutal! Read Full Review

    While mutants are being hunted and ostracized in other Secret Wars X tie-ins, they are letting their freak flags fly high and proudly in E is For Extinction #3. While Secret Wars rages and raves, its tie-ins have given creators free reign to pretty much do whatever they please with the characters that live in the outlands. E is For Extinction may very well be one of the purest examples of that free reign. Writers Chris Burnham and Dennis Culver along with artists Ramon Villalobos and Ian Herring took one of the X-Men's most iconic eras and spun into into something wholly new yet recognizable and entertaining, all while never compromising their strange and singular artistic vision. X-books don't all have to be gloom and doom - they are at their best when they are all-new and all-different, and E is For Extinction #3 is about as different as it gets. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Aug 27, 2015

    This series probably won't work for you at all if you've never read the initial run, and even if you have it still won't work entirely, but it is an achievement of ambition and zaniness if nothing else. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Marius Thienenkamp Aug 31, 2015

    All in all, E IS FOR EXTINCTION #3 is a good addition to this fun book, but there's not enough drama or focus on characters in it, and the plot just feels ridiculously overcharged. Read Full Review
