The young bionic amnesiac known as Number 13 searches for answers and his creator, in a future world that's been brought to its knees by the vicious Monstrum Morbus plague.

They dub him "Thirteen" and invite him to join their group-and one of them knows exactly what horrible purpose he was built for!

    From the very first page, Brennan Wagner's colors are gripping. They pop off the page and create an aesthetically pleasing sense of mayhem. Also of note is the very last page, which is a full page depiction of the newly introduced Mother Goose. This page is beautifully colored, with lavenders and purples in her hair, surrounding her bronze skin and emerald eyes. Very well done, Mr. Wagner. Read Full Review

    This was a very cool issue that enjoyed a lot. It makes a solid debut and has definitely captured my attention. I’ll be checking out the next issue for sure as more of the mystery around the story unwraps and a conflict looms in the horizon. If you’re fearing the end of the world this week then you should buy this issue for a glimpse of what we all might go through or just buy it because it’s really good and entertaining.

    Overall, it seems worth a read and if future issues remain true to the style and tone of this book, I'd be inclined to go for it even if the current art remained. Read Full Review

    If you're a huge sci-fi buff you could probably use a less serious series to add to your reading pile, and Number 13 #1 is just that. Unfortunately it failed to make a lasting impression on me even with such strong motivations to keep reading. It's a good comic with a fun mood, but isn't anything overly profound. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Dec 23, 2012

    The style instantly takes me back to saturday morning cartoons in the nineties and that is never a bad thing. Actually. the more I look at it, the more I like it. There is a technical precision to the art that is influenced by how those cartoons were shot and, with that frame of reference, the art is incredible. The writing though, is a different kind of nostalgia, a tired nostalgia that revisits, not innovates. Read Full Review
