Plant people from outer space have come to Earth and, wouldn't you know it, they just happen to be here when millions of mutants rise as undead creatures hungry for human flesh. The X-Men return to Genosha in a tale so crazy, it's taking the entire writing crew of the X-Men line to tackle it!

    But Why Tho? - Derrick Pittman Aug 5, 2020

    Empyre: X-Men #2 is a wild ride and it doesn't stop. It's a perfect storm of action, mystery, and humor. The art and coloring are so good that it looks like it could pop right off of the page. This side story is great for those that have not picked up the main storyline. This will definitely whet your appetite, leaving you wanting more. Read Full Review

    If youve been dying for action, Magiks aggression, and the Golden Girls of botany, this issue is right up your alley. Readers will love this issue and I highly recommend picking this series up. Its a must-read for any X-fan and frankly, is the best issue of EMPYRE Ive read so far AND its a tie-in! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 8, 2020

    The disposable nature of this tie-in seems to have given the various creative teams the freedom to go hog wild with characters, actions and cool moments. I'm loving it. Read Full Review

    Everything that occurs here provides some insight into the "Dawn of X" line as this tie-in continues to read more like an excellent X-title. Read Full Review

    No, it isn't good. Don't buy it. Maybe look over your friend's shoulder at the art, but don't buy it. Read Full Review
