    That is the case with this issue though. Although it works well enough as a story, it also is a story which has a few defining moments with other material in between which almost feels like filler. It is an unconventional format for a story as it moves between moments which are either strong for character development or artistically impressive, but such is the lot of the X-Men tie-ins to Secret Wars. It is good, but not much else, and more than anything makes the reader want to re-read the original as opposed to continuing with this. Read Full Review

    Marguerite Bennett's writing is impressive. The way she dances between Chrissie Pryde and Cameron's different viewpoints gives the dialogue a tone reminiscent of Divergent. Like Tris and Four, Chrissie and Cameron have different levels of optimism about whether this dystopian regime can turn around. We're committed to this world now, and we want to know what will happen to these X-Men. Bennett, Norton, and Plascencia are creating the X-Men at their best: fighting for good in a world that hates and fears them. Read Full Review

    Altogether, #2 of YEARS OF FUTURE PAST does have many good approaches, but struggles with the same problem the first issue did: atmosphere. Nevertheless, it has enough good ideas and twists to keep the read interesting! Read Full Review

    This series seemed the most promising of the various X-men-themed Secret Wars tie-ins, which is why it's so unfortunate the book hasn't lived up to its potential so far. Read Full Review

    "Years of Future Past" #2 is a nice-looking but disappointing sophomore issue, but some of the story elements established here bode well for the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, what's wrong with this book is that there's too much talk and not nearly enough direction with the plot, making Years of Future Past a missed opportunity. Read Full Review
