    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Aug 18, 2021

    Way Of X #5 is yet another X-book that feels like its ending before its time. Spurrier has done a bang-up job with Nightcrawler and Legion, threw love to lesser used characters like the Xorn twins and Doctor Nemesis, and built a great plot with Onslaught. While the book is getting its own ending, these characters and their stories are too interesting to lose right now. Itll be a shame to see this book go, but its been a great ride so far. Quinn and Tartaglia have really stepped on art, making the book look as good as it read. It will be interesting to see how everything pans out, but it would be better if the book was continuing.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Aug 18, 2021

    My point is, Spurrier drives home perfect ideals as to human nature, life itself, and why resurrection for all would be doomed from the beginning. Readers, WAY OF X is the perfect series to read and discuss over a cup of coffee. I highly recommend giving WAY OF X #5 a chance. Nevertheless, its probably not the best issue to hop on board. Therefore, you need to grab the back issues or wait to get the trade. WAY OF X #5 is an example of invention and imagination at its finest. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    This ending redeemed a great many of the faults of previous issues, and it did so in a way that brimmed with revelation, genuine terror, and stellar art. I just can't wait to see what happens in the finale. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Aug 17, 2021

    Bits and PiecesThe “creating a mutant religion” hook has all but disappeared from this series in favor of a corruption arc. While the writing and exceptional art make for engaging storytelling, the big revelations about Onslaught's method of attack could lead to big happenings on Krakoa IF Spurrier follows through. For now, this is a tentative reccomend. Read Full Review

    Way of Xas a series finds its strength in posing philosophical questions and exploring those ideas. The Onslaught ideas are exciting and Spurrier lays some really interesting groundwork for his future X-work here. Read Full Review

    Overall, Way of X delivers an action-packed issue that also really dives deep into philosophy and our interpretation of the Krakoan laws. There are some really heartfelt conversations in this issue that I enjoyed. This series seems like it has finally found its groove and I’m excited to see where it goes. Read Full Review

    However this tale finds resolution in X-Men: The Onslaught Revelation, it has already made a monumental contribution to the most exciting era in X-Men history since Claremont and Cockrum initiated another. Read Full Review
