    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 22, 2021

    X-Men: The Onslaught Revelation is one of the best X-Men comics of the Krakoan era. Spurrier built something special in Way Of X, and this comic is the culmination of that and gives readers a glimpse of the future, one that will hopefully still be worked on by this team. Quinn and Tartaglia give the whole thing the marvelous visuals it needs to impress. This comic was a huge surprise in the best possible way, a triumphant book that is one of a kind. Read Full Review

    This story was a beautifully drawn, action packed, philosophically sound, pee-filled season finale. I just can't wait to see what happens next! Read Full Review

    If The Way of X, and its final chapter The Onslaught Revelation, possess a clear flaw, it's an excess of ambition. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Sep 21, 2021

    Final ThoughtsX-Men: The Onslaught Revelation #1 caps the Way of X storyline with a parable about forgiveness and letting go of hate to cure the rot living inside you. While the narration tries a little too hard to reach biblical proportions, the outcome is thought-provoking, the execution is fascinating, and the art is top-notch. This ending to the Way of X is as strong as the first issue, and the finale sets up a new X-team that's worth keeping an eye on. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Sep 22, 2021

    What began with promise and direction pointed towards discovery, creation of a mutant religion, philosophical inner workings of resurrection, life after death, and morality. However, that all washed away quickly and turned into a 3-page showdown with Onslaught as well as the prequel to a new mutant team. Read Full Review
