    The War Of Kings symbol on the cover of this issue reminds readers that Kingbreaker will lead directly into this plot thread's crossover with the Inhumans early next year, so I have hope that the series will actually develop some intrigue in the coming issues. Sadly this first issue isn't exactly the bombastic comeback this team might've thought they were putting out. Read Full Review

    Time will tell whether the "War of the Kings" tag means this series is actually important to the crossover or not -- Marvel has a habit of tacking tie-in banners onto books a little more forgivingly than most would, and the series' status as a sequel to an earlier mini makes it hard to see that it could be an essential part of the build-up. That said, if you enjoyed "Emperor Vulcan," it's definitely worth a read; if you're interested in "War of the Kings" it should, at the very least, prime you on the status of the Shi'ar and Vulcan who will be a major part of that story. Anyone else can probably give it a miss without too much worry. Read Full Review

    After Deadly Genesis, The Rise and Fall of the Shi’ar Empire, and Emperor Vulcan, the saga of Gabriel Summers continues in Kingbreaker. It was great to catch up with this story again but unfortunately X-Men: Kingbreaker is a light read and one has to wonder how much Yost and Weaver can fit in only 4 issues
