Kieron Gillen unveils his epic new monthly series, launching with a special double-sized issue!  1945. Germany is in ruins. The war in the west can only be days away from ending. Threats of "wunderwaffen" to be unleashed by the dying Reich have become laughable. There are no miracle weapons here.  It's over. It has to be over.

It's not. There's been stories which have mixed enhanced humans and World War 2 before. There's never been one like this. See super beings in a whole new light as Gillen presents an epic new series that not only rewrites history, it redefines the genre.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Apr 8, 2013

    An interesting twist on the bad guys having superhumans during WWII. The art isn't terrible, but it is confusing enough that it holds the issue back in some places. Worth checking out if you want variety in your comic reading. Read Full Review

    For four bucks you can't go wrong. You get over forty pages of an entertaining twist tacked on to the end of the European theater in World War II. The book isn't a knock off of Captain America or other super powered beings set during the time period. This is more of the kind of book that highlights the dark regions of mankind's capabilities to harm others. It's a good start to what looks like an interesting series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - George Chimples Apr 11, 2013

    In all honesty, Uber #0 is somewhat exhausting to read on the first go around. There is maybe one sympathetic character amongst the many presented in this issue (and that is being generous). The issue also suffers from a lack of distinctiveness on the part of the creators, both visually and narrative-wise. It's hard to tell one German soldier from another, even when it's Heinz Guderian addressing his staff " and having all the supersoldiers share similar codenames like Siegfried, Siegmund and Sieglunde is confusing. The pacing was a little clipped, with a new scene and characters every three pages or so. But then, this is a zero issue so perhaps these things are established better in future issues.

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic Apr 10, 2013

    Even though Gillen himself touts this as the first issue, it's still a zero issue which often comes with its own stigma and expectations -- that it's just a prequel and isn't hugely necessary to being able to follow the story. I'm curious to see what #1 (and #2 and #3 and") is like, so take my rating as a tentative one. Read Full Review

    Giant issue #0 - Kieron Gillen's Uber is something, Its not Super Heroes it's Not True life War. -- It's sci-fi beats through An Avatar press horror filter and it's brilliant. The Art by Cannaan White fits the story, his Avatar house style and Kieron's words fit wonderful. Cannaan makes the Ubermensch feel intimating. I love the way Kieron has true life events mixed with his story and what would happen differently, we almost never see this side of WWII. This is a thinking man's book can't wait to see what happens.

    Some of the military detail is a little sloppy, but otherwise this is an unusual subject for a comic. We start in April 1945 with Germany on the brink of total defeat, and move onto the unleasing if a Nazi secret weapon... the art is rather confusing and some of the battle scenes are way over the top but it's a good start.

    what a bunch of shit, any doubt went out the window when they gave metzger a shout out character. Avatar press can deny, deny, deny thier WP/nazi love, but its still apparent."See super beings in a whole new light as Gillen presents an epic new series that not only rewrites history, it redefines the genre."....gross
