    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Aug 31, 2012

    In its current format, Looker reads like a TV pilot of a Angel-style investigative mystery series. Coupled with a beautiful Guillem March cover, and equally lush Mike S. Miller interiors, this is one we hope gets picked up for series. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Sep 2, 2012

    Looker wasn't quite as thrilling as last month's Eternity, but that's to be expected with this kind of book. Some months will be hits, some months will be misses. I'd say that Looker falls somewhere in between. I wouldn't buy this book on a monthly basis, but I was happy to have read this done in one story. Read Full Review

    There are portions of Looker #1 that have enormous potential, and if this was the start of a larger story, then I might be able to give it the benefit of the doubt. But as a completed whole, there simply isn't enough here to make it worth the money, unless you're a die-hard Looker fan. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Sep 5, 2012

    Fitting for a comic revolving around fashion that it's more about image and attitude than substance. Edginton makes inefficient use of his time, resulting in an issue that fails to make you understand why you should care about Looker. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Sep 2, 2012

    This comic isn’t terrible, it looks great, except there’s not enough here for me to recommend. With great titles like American Vampire, I Vampire & The Strain I just don’t see how I could. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Aug 30, 2012

    There's certainly a market for hot female vampire anti-heroes (Vampirella's series springs to mind instantly) but you need a better and more consistent book than "National Comics: Looker." There's simply not enough greatness or intrigue here to compel a reader to come back for more. Read Full Review
