    From the look of things, "Second Coming" is firing on all cylinders. Mike Carey's entry to the storyline could be the strongest yet, with a good mix of characters, some great flashy moments along the way, and a dedication to the heroes themselves. One of the best things to come out of the X-offices in quite some time. Read Full Review

    Final Thoughts: Another week brings another worthy portion of "Second Coming." After a lackluster period, it is evident that Mike Carey has rediscovered what made his X-Men title so thoroughly compelling to begin with and has reapplied those elements as of late. Read Full Review

    When I first heard about "Second Coming" I'll admit I groaned at the thought of another crossover, but this has proven to be a thoroughly enjoyable crossover so far. If the remaining ten chapters keep the pace, this could go down as one of the best "X-Men" family crossovers to date. Good work, all involved. Read Full Review

    Now if the rest of the X-Books could follow suit, Marvel just might be able to make a believer out of me again. But I’m not holding my breath. Read Full Review

    By the conclusion of X-Men: Legacy #235, I could definitely feel that the close of the first month or movement of Second Coming is just around the corner. Both the heroes and the villains endure some casualties, making this the warm up for the rumored “big death” that will occur next month in X-Force #26. Still this issue continues to demonstrate that Mike Carey remains one of the best writers in the X-Office bullpen. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Apr 22, 2010

    I wouldn't consider this issue a misstep or even a bad issue, but it is most certainly the weakest issue thus far in the Second Coming event. Carey struggles a bit to juggle the large cast while maintaining clear personalities and Greg Land is still, well, Greg Land. There are some great moments here though and it is entertaining, so if you can overlook some of the issues with the craftsmanship, this is still an issue worth reading. Read Full Review
