    EXTEMRINATION #3 looks, once again, absolutely stunning thanks to Pepe Larraz and Marte Gracia. Ed Brisson adds in some fantastic characterization to the mix. It continues this bombastic miniseries with panache. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ruston Fritcher Oct 3, 2018

    Very few questions are answered in this chapter but the threat of the villains gets stronger. Ahab is becoming a more menacing presence. Nathan Summers is an interesting time cop. The art is just as strong as when the team worked on Avengers No Surrender. This issue gets a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Sep 26, 2018

    Extermination #3 is the middle point of this journey. The X-Men already aren't the same as they were prior to the first issue. Heck, they're not the same at the end of this issue as they were at the start except there's still two more issues left! Brisson, Larraz, Gracia, and Sabino do good work here, and it's more than enough to keep my attention on Marvel's (not-so) merry mutants. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 26, 2018

    The event continues at a breakneck speed and delivers excitement that's not expected and very welcome. It's another example that events can work and work really well. It brings together so many different threads and delivers weaving in old and new. Add in fantastic art and you've got an X-event that's one of the best in recent years. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 27, 2018

    For a limited series, Brisson is doing a great job with the pacing of this issue. Even though there are some plot details that haven't been revealed yet, there is enough action and mystery left in this story to keep me interested in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Extermination gets another strong chapter that isn't quite as jaw-dropping as its first, but avoids the pacing pitfalls of its second. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Oct 6, 2018

    This is an action packed, well-written (slightly familiar) story told and illustrated with style, verve and more than a few hidden jokes. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 27, 2018

    Extermination #3 was a big improvement over the first two issues of this event. That is not saying much but the quicker pace and elevation of Ahab as a viable threat helped make this a much better issue. There are still parts of Extermination that need improvement in order for it to be a must read story. If Ed Brisson can turn those things around and keep the momentum created by Extermination #3 going than this could turn out to be a successful X-Men event. Read Full Review
