    That sense of survival for the sake of survival, that total lack of hope, is going to be a gut punch for X-Men fans like myself who've seen these characters through tragedy after tragedy but there's something fitfully, painfully real about the portrayal here. Even if the last page is a bit of a dramatic let-down, this is one of the few Secret Warstie-in stories that will be remembered for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Sep 25, 2015

    More than anything else, Years of Future Past tried to incorporate a distinct sense of heart into the narrative. While there's only so much possible in a story featuring dystopian futures and internment camps, the heart conveyed through Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Christy, Cameron, and even Wolverine help make it endearing. Not every story about a dystopian future should have the undertone of a Linkin Park music video. It can have heart along with killer robots and giant dragons. When put together, it can be a potent combination. Read Full Review

    As we wrap up yet another tie-in, we continue to wait for the main series to make any progress. Marguerite Bennett has had her hands in several books for this event and has been very successful. Years of Future Past may not wow you, but you will walk away feeling fulfilled. Read Full Review

    Years of Future Past #5 is another frustrating Secret Wars series that at least gets to end on a pretty good issue. Read Full Review
