    X-Tinction Agenda # 2 lives up to its title. The extinction of mutantkind is on the line. Guggenheim and Di Giandomenico create an issue full of tension, anger and spectacular battles. The Press Gang crosses a line in order to save the mutants in Genosha. Yet, there are other forces at work here. The stage is set for a major conflict that could mean the end of mutantkind ... in more than one way. Definitely a gripping issue that makes you want more. Read Full Review

    I for one am really looking forward to the next issue of this book; I want to see how X-City retaliates against Genosha and how the true ‘cure' revealed at the end is going to impact the island nation of mutants. Pick this one up folks; you won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    For all that this Secret Wars tie-in calls back to a specific X-Men crossover, it also shows a clear love for all things X-Men. Read Full Review

    X-Tinction Agenda isn't a pretty book to look at, but it has a solid story that's similar to the event that ran from 1990-1991. If you weren't a fan of the original storyline, the inclusion of mutants like Rahne, Rictor and the villain may not connect with you, and the art may turn you off. But if you were a fan of the original event or that era of X-Men, you should definitely give this book a try. Read Full Review

    X-Tinction Agenda #2 was a better issue than the first one. Marc Guggenheim seems to be finding his footing and is setting up a pretty good story. The pencils have improved from the last issue and will probably get better as each book comes out. This may not be one of the huge tie-ins, but it has been a very entertaining one. Read Full Review
