    'New Crusaders' deserves a chance to blossom under the new Dark Circle Comics imprint where, more than anywhere else, can become a valuable addition to their line-up.

    New Crusaders: Dark Tomorrow is a decent little one shot release, one that feels like a transitional piece to bring us into this world after its Red Circle run. It brings the reader up to speed well enough and I can see it being enticing enough for some to try out more. I have a real love of the Impact! Comics books from the 90's, so reconnecting with this kind of universe and characters in some form is nostalgic, and I'll admit I'm hopeful for more simply because there's a charm about them that I can't quite explain. Flynn does a solid enough job in bringing this together with what needs to be done, and having the recap pages definitely helps. Martinez and Bryant's artwork definitely captures the feeling overall that I think of when it comes to this tier of heroes and that has a sleekness and simplicity about it that works very well, contrasting some of what we get from other superhero publishers. I suspect there will be more, and I'll definitely check those out. Read Full Review

This unfortunately tends to leave me a little bit disinterested in the book that seems to be aimed not at me or bring new readers to the brand. Read Full Review
