    This - THIS - is what First Wave should have been. Forget the mixing of technology, forget the globe spanning crises that requires characters to leave their natural environments, forget trying to cram in pulp characters simply to get people to point and look. This issue told an excellent story, kept everything in one time period, and limited the cast to a few of the big names. It worked, and it worked so well, that I'm glad this issue slipped into my buy pile. A brilliant story of revenge, the flash and bang kept to a minimum, and art that stands up well earns First Wave Special #1 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    In a line of books that's been very hit or miss, it's not too surprising that "First Wave Special" #1 is a miss. It is surprising that Starr and Winslade are the team that lead to one. Not up to the standard either has set in their previous First Wave works, the special is a disappointing read with a baffling conflict at its core. Read Full Review
