    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Nov 21, 2008

    This books is essentially another piece of the puzzle in a story that continues to pick up speed. I don't know if it's vital to read this issue (it depends on where the story goes from here) - and the action scenes are probably a little rough for young readers - but it's a solid chapter in the ongoing story, and it leaves me looking forward to the next chapter.

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Sep 12, 2009

    Just two points: First: Magog's powers and capabilities are still a big vague. He can fly now? And he has some sort of technological background? Wasn't he just a Marine? Second: the practice of setting parts of the stories in actual real-life locations (Sudan) can make it seem like DC Comics is trivializing the very real atrocities happening there so this has to be handled with sensitivity and good sense.

    It's the same thing over and over again. That's insanity. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Sep 2, 2009

    By the time the issue got back to the plot involving re-animated corpses, it had already lost me. I remain unconvinced there's anything worthwhile to this character, and I remain curious why DC thought differently. I don't think I'll stick around to find out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 2, 2009

    This book is not a book for everyone. The closest approximation I can conceive of this title is that it is DC's version of the Punisher, but placed on a global scale. Rather than finding and killing the smack dealer, Magog is going to cover the globe to find and shut down the arms dealer -" by any means necessary. The adventures of Magog are just beginning here, so there isn't a better time to jump on, provided you like proactive heroes who won't hesitate to kill the bad guys. Read Full Review

    Still, there are going to be some readers who will love the violence and Magog's edgy attitude, but I'm not one of those readers, and I can't possibly recommend this issue to any comic book consumer. Read Full Review
