“His dialogue flows naturally and realistically; the X-Men sound like real people here, and like ones who genuinely enjoy each other’s company… Ellis certainly has adapted quickly to the title.” — Greg McElhatton of ComicBookResources.com
“Warren Ellis is the only writer I’ve read who has never let me down… The single thing that Ellis does that makes him my favorite working writer is what makes me so excited about this iteration of the X-Men. He takes science fiction concepts and makes them believable by working through their real-world implications.” — Paul Brian McCoy of ComicsBulletin.com
