The angels have found what they need to invoke the end of the world—and the Secular Humanist Occult Obliteration Taskforce is the only thing standing in their way. S.H.O.O.T. is changed forever in the action-packed conclusion to the miniseries everyone is talking about!

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jan 15, 2014

    Overall Aclin and Selma have created a terrific conclusion for this series and I for one have been amazed with the entire story. I also can't wait to see what Aclin has in store when S.H.O.O.T. First returns in the pages of Dark Horse Presents #35 but until then I'd highly recommend giving this mini-series and more importantly this issue a read. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Samantha Cross Jan 9, 2014

    The action in this book has consistently been a joy to look at thanks to the energetic art of Nicols Daniel Selma. If it isn't fairies fighting angels or robots fighting demons, Selma makes each panel come to life. He visualizes Aclin's words, making the concepts and the characters as over-the-top and larger than life in tandem with the big ideas that they're fighting over. But the ideas aren't new and they're not all that controversial, Aclin and Selma have just managed to use the outlet of comic books to convey those ideas in a fun, entertaining, and at times poignant way.

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Jan 6, 2014

    S.H.O.O.T. First is a fun story that balances both quirky fun and an understated story about religion all rolled up in a monster fighting comic series. There is something in this series for everyone and for only being four issues long, most of the characters were all fleshed out decently without feeling like pointless clich back stories that slow down the pacing. Everything flows well and makes for a pleasingly smooth read while still balancing all of the main elements you want in a story. Trying to juggle all of those things into four issues is no easy task but this series pulls it off well. It will be interesting to see what these creators work on next but I wouldn't be mad if they decided to return to this series in the future. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Jan 20, 2014

    In sum, despite my criticisms, it's not as if this were irredeemable. The ideas are still fun and clever, the lead characters show sparks, and the whole project was clearly done with a lot of love. However, even with all these first-rate qualities, S.H.O.O.T First remains better in concept than in execution. Read Full Review
