THE WAR IS OVER - AND THE MARVEL UNIVERSE MUST PICK UP THE PIECES! Midgard is broken, and as heroes of Asgard and Earth alike start to sift through the pieces, new heroes - and villains - emerge. What's next for Jane Foster, now free of the hammer she was willing to die to hold? Thor's brother Loki faced a terrible fate in the War of the Realms - and now the god of mischief must make himself anew. For the Punisher, the war isn't even close to finished - but this time, he's got his own army. And for Thor himself, destiny has finally arrived. The God of Thunder strikes out for a whole new adventure!

    A great ending to one of the best event stories in recent comic book history that lays the foundation for an exciting future. Read Full Review

    Overall, the issue was super packed with talented writers and artists making it a really great read that helped to put a bow on the epic summer event. If your a person that needs a sense of conclusion and have followed the war since day one, this issue will help with that. Read Full Review

    War of the Realms Omega #1 accomplished what it set out do, which is to pique my interest in the upcoming Jane Foster, Loki, and Punisher comic book series that are spinning out of the event. The artists for these books are especially well-cast, and Cafu's beautiful take on Jane Foster's transformation from mortal to Valkyrie was the highlight of this entire one-shot. Also, Juan Ferreyra is such an underrated artist, and I'm excited to see his take on creative fantasy monster executions. Read Full Review

    With four different mini-stories to read in one book, none stand out as much as Jason Aaron and Ron Garney's Daredevil and Heimdall story, which features Ol' Hornhead having an internal battle with his faith once more. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Jul 10, 2019

    War of the Realms: Omega is less of an epilogue to the event than I expected it to be, but it does nicely pick up on dangling threads from the story, either resolving them or putting them in place for spin-off titles. It's an anthology of trailers for forthcoming series, but it still manages to be a satisfying read on its own. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Jul 17, 2019

    War of the Realms Omega #1 shows us the fate of four characters after the War of the Realms is over. More of a launching point/teaser for new series releasing later in the year. The art and stories range from fine to good, but mostly this issue can be skipped without missing too much. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Jul 17, 2019

    The rushed script in Age of X-Man Omega #1 lends little context for upcoming X-Men stories and barely resolves the Age of X-Man crossover. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Jul 12, 2019

    Read this issue as a prologue to the upcoming stuff and it's good, but as an epilogue to War of the Realms it's about as welcome as getting grabbed on a city bus. If only there was some way to give the issue a good score but the story line a bad score. I'm also dinging the cover hard for the banner and having Malekith (who isn't even in the book) on it.
