David has a problem.  He lives in a world of monsters that would love to devour him.  He's the last boy on Earth.  The last human being on Earth.  And these creatures that see him only as prey, they're his former neighbors.  He has one hope:  to get to New York.  To get to where Captain America and the rest of the heroes are.  Alex Ross and Jim Krueger combine their abilities with artist Well-Bee to tell a very uncanny prequel to the legendary EARTH X trilogy.

    Well-Bee caps a brilliant story with stunning art that keeps the focus on the characters. The layout of the art delivers on the emotional journey that David is taking and every page is filled with something to catch the eye. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 7, 2020

    This may well end up being a strong candidate for the most absorbing and deeply human comic book series of 2020. It may not exactly be the superhero fight comic some might expect, but it's hard to deny how strong the sensitive depiction of the protagonist is and how well you'll connect with him. Marvels X captures the wonderment of superheroes through a deeply human story. Read Full Review

    A moving, human story that has me hooked for more, with incredible visuals to boot. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a solid start to what promises to be a necessary chapter in a strong continuing narrative, and not just an afterthought for the hell of it. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 15, 2020

    A quiet start to an archetypical Hero's Journey, with engaging writing, clear art and a likable main character, making this the first 'Earth X' universe story I'll be following all the way through. Read Full Review

    Fans of the original story and Alex Ross will likely enjoy this series but I'm not sure about more general audiences. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Chase Magnett Jan 8, 2020

    While this debut is more easily accessed and understood than later stories in the teamline, it still doesn't quite deliver on the interesting nature of its premise. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jan 7, 2020

    Though graced with a singular art style and occasional interesting sparks, Marvels X #1 starts readers at a deficient. Virtually inaccessible to new readers and presenting little for even longtime Earth X fans to latch onto, Marvels X #1 feels like a baffling way to bring back this well-mined alternate universe.
