Battle of the Atom 01

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the first month of Marvel’s one of two ongoing events, celebrating 50 years of X-Men comics.

Battle of the Atom so far is an event with an absolutely awesome premise and some killer artwork, yet it finds itself let down by the fact that it feels like it’s being dragged out over too many books” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“As with DC’s Trinity War, Marvel’s X-Men: Battle of the Atom is my first taste of reading a major event unfold on a week-by-week basis, and I’m definitely loving it. I’m coming in without any previous comics knowledge, and yet the story is very approachable, which is great.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
