Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Here's the first volume of the final series in the Earth X trilogy, Marvel's epic attempt at reimagining its universe of characters and continuities. After enduring revelations and battles in Earth X and Universe X, the story finds dozens of Marvel heroes from various points in their stories assembled to stop the Celestials from using Earth as a host for their life forms; they also want to save their own worlds in the process. Krueger's writing of this tale is nearly Homeric in its proportions. Characters not seen for decade resurface as their own individual stories unfold. Dr. Strange, the X-Men and Captain America each are involved in soul-searching dilemmas and battles that will determine the conclusions of their careers. Krueger does a fine job with an unenviable task, and manages to make the numerous subplots fairly engaging. The story is heavy on earth-shattering events and high drama, but it moves at a brisk pace. The fairly standard, clear and accessible artwork uses a minimum of pyrotechnics, and the surplus of characters alone is enough to keep readers hooked. While not recommended for the uninitiated, those following the trilogy will find Paradise X a satisfying start to the conclusion.

Convoluted Feb. 1 2009
By A. Flores - Published on
Format: Comic
I gave Earth X 4 stars because I thought it was imaginative in its use of a vast swath of the Marvel universe. However, by the end of the series I felt that what made it initially exciting became cumbersome, convoluted, too repetitious and pretentious. There are good moments up to the end, but nothing worth the time and money needed to finish the saga. While I applaud the concept, writing this thing must have been very difficult. It was way too wordy.

I imagine the series if there had been a limit to the number of words per page, or even no words at all; that would have blown people away and created dialogue among readers. Instead, you put it down and have no questions, because everything had been repeatedly explained ad nauseum.

Old School Comic Book Reader Jan. 2 2008

I enjoyed this book. As a reader of the stories from the 60's, 70's, and 80's I liked the explainations and story line. I stopped reading in the 90's and this is a fresh experience. I plan on reading the companion volume.
This was actually good July 7 2010

I liked this one way better than Universe X 1 and too. I was happy to see they finally change the narrative (at least in the first few chapters).

Each Earth X chapter begin with a prologe were Uatu and Machine Man talk about a current event and a specific character. After this they went for this character origin and then the chapter runs. The chapter ends with a epiloge about what just happen and maybe a bit of the next one. That was for every chapter, and I gotta say that it work for Earth X.

Universe X 1 and 2 tried the same formula. This time the Prologe was going to be between Nighthawk (Kyle Richmond) and Gargoyle (Isaac Christians), except that they talk about not only 1 character but several groups, realms, tribes, etc. It all end up being confusing and tiresome.

Paradise X Vol.1 was another story. I was SO happy to see the story just started from the begining. No prologe. This continued for several chapters and when they finally start with epiloges and prologes again it worth it. They talk only one character at a time. It was cooooool the Wolverine possible origin they put here. Good and interesting.

I enjoy this one a whole lot!. I recomend it!.

This belongs to one of the greatest story-lines (I think), that Marvel has ever produced, the art is phenomenal, It's mainly done by Alex Ross, and I try to collect all the work's that he has done, as for the story, When it was wrote, it was ahead of it's time. If you ever have the chance to read this collection , read it, you will be glad you did.
