Reviewed in the United States on April 15, 2010
this is the 4th and final edition of the epic 1995 storyline, Age of Apocalypse. a storyline that affected ALL of the X-Men titles for about 18 months. this is an important story for numerous reasons, namely because of the addition of characters from this alternate timeline making it to the mainstream Marvel universe. Dark Beast, Nate Grey - the X-Man, Sugar Man, and also Blink lived on in this timeline and became immensely popular. this also saw the rise of artists like Joe Madureira, Steve Epting, Bryan Hitch, (yes, that Bryan Hitch!!!!) Jeff Matsuda, (who would go on to do design work for the Jackie Chan Adventures and The Batman saturday morning cartoon fare) Salvador Larroca, Terry Dodson, the Kubert bros., and Roger Cruz (the best artist on the series, IMO). granted, this is a 15 year old story, but it still kicks ass and holds up. I recommend it, for fans and first-time readers like myself. I just read it for the first time, because admittedly, I was never an X-Men fan, but couldn't resist my curiousness for a story that is largely regarded as the best cross-over from the X-Men corner of the Marvel universe.
