    In a comic world full of zero issues and reboots, Steed and Mrs. Peel is a great place to start outside of the mainstream. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 1, 2012

    The art in this issue is interesting in a kind of 60′s nouveau sort of way, and the likenesses (while inconsistent) are better than they might have been. This issue's depiction of Emma Peel, specifically, is superior to what we got in issue #0 and the Grant Morrison miniseries, and even when she doesn't quite look like Dame Diana, she still looks attractive with vivid facial expressions. When you boil it all down (perhaps to make a nice spot of tea?), Steed And Mrs. Peel #1 gets the job done in terms of art and dialogue, with the biggest flaws coming in terms of some odd plotting and a bit of ambiguity in the sequence of events, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. I am a bit nonplussed to find that Mark Waid is credited merely with the story here, given how prominent he is in the advertising for this book, but overall it makes for an okay episode and a better-than-average single issue reading experience...

    Aside from the cliche villains of the series, “Steed & Mrs. Peel #1″ is a good start to an experiment in genre-mashing. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Jan 24, 2012

    Steed and Mrs. Peel does a good job at hinting at the elements of the original TV show's strengths, but it does tend to point up how much the personal chemistry of Macnee and Rigg helped ground (and elevate) scripts that might otherwise be an unconvincing jumble of the mundane and the ridiculous. Not the place to start with this property, but for fans, a nice bit of nostalgia. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Sep 26, 2012

    If you aren't familiar with the characters in The Avengers TV show, it's possible you won't be reading this comic. With Mark Waid and Boom! Studios involved plus the fact that this is a first issue, you might be willing to take a chance and try something different. The problem is, this issue begins with a crazy opening. There isn't much of a chance to introduce the characters and new readers will quickly feel lost trying to catch up with all the chaotic elements of the story. This definitely is a game-changer in the world of Steed and Mrs. Peel. There is a big enough of a hook in wondering how the series will continue from here to make you come back. Throw in the appearance of certain characters and the insane development at the end, fans will be sure to return for the next issue. Read Full Review
