    Brain Boy: The Men from G.E.S.T.A.L.T. #1 is a great start to something bigger for Brain Boy as he starts to meet his match. This could have easily been another simple smash and grab where you know Brain Boy has the enemy beat, yet this twist here offers a different approach. Whatever happens next is surely something we haven't seen before and with that said we can only hope that whatever note this story left off on with the last story arc manages to be addressed somewhere between the second and fourth issue.

    Make sure to bring some popcorn and possibly a seatbelt, people. This is going to be an entertaining ride, but not without some bumps and sharp turns along the way. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy May 22, 2014

    Brain Boy‘s latest mini-series starts strong with a good story that has introduced exciting characters with visually striking powers. Williams and Colwell have done great to accentuate these visual aspects by providing appealing art to add to Lente's already engaging plot. The Men From G.E.S.T.A.L.T. uses information from previous series as well as building on new ideas, creating an exciting story that should only get better as the series progresses. The book explodes into action with a great first issue full of excitement, intimate moments, and a lot of anticipation of whats to come. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed May 28, 2014

    I'll definetely be back for more when issue 2 is available. The artstyle is worth the price of admission alone, but I'm also reallylooking forward to seeing what they do with the storyline. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 23, 2014

    "Brain Boy: The Men from G.E.S.T.A.L.T." #1 is a fun little book. With Dark Horse's Project: Black Sky titles starting to show up and more and more, this is one that you won't want to miss. Ignore the cheesy title that sounds like a Legion of Substitute-Heroes reject (the main character hates the name himself), and trust me -- it's worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore May 23, 2014

    This issue has an unenviable task of being open to new readers and satisfying to old ones, but that isn't an excuse " most comics have that same challenge. Instead, this just falls short in just about every way; there is hope for the mini, but it needs to pick up the action and, especially, get Williams doing better work. Read Full Review
