    Carey is proving out what he claimed from the beginning that his story would be more enjoyable as the story got deeper. Each issue manages to gain a little more of my interest than the previous one. I am sure Carey has a few more twists to this story, but even with what we have now I think the crossover has been worth the price of admission. I definitely recommend this comic book.

    Things get really weird when Rogue and Gambit reach their goal, a hidden room in the complex that Magneto doesn't recall building. Inside are some really strange time effects, and even weirder spacial anomalies. We still don't find out what's going on, or who "X" might be, but the mystery just deepened in very interesting ways.

    While we're being given basic storylines in all the other X-Men books right now, it is nice to see a writer that has enough bravado to try something slightly original with the characters, even if it comes at the expense of the readers. But this is one of those cases where it is good to be left in the dark. There is definitely a mystery here, and thanks to the previous two issues of this crossover, I cannot wait to see how Mike Carey unravels the rest of Age of X. Read Full Review

    Overall, Carey is doing amazing things with "Age of X." It will be a shame if when it's over we have to go back to business as usual. In Carey's hands, that's still interesting, but not as interesting as this has been. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Mar 24, 2011

    The mysteries get a little out of control in this issue and the art can't save the day. But, after three previous issues in Age of X that were quite good, I still have high hopes for the crossover. Read Full Review
