Is she a hero? Is she a villain? Voodoo is on the run in the new DC Universe, trying to stay one step ahead of her pursuers, using all of her considerable skills to complete a mission that will put the entire Earth in danger. DC's sexy, edgy new series goes into overdrive with one of the most unexpected opening scenes ever!

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Oct 26, 2011

    I am thoroughly intrigued by the notion of a (sometimes) sexy, alien, intelligent spy who is more than a little bit cut throat and will do what it takes to get the job done. The book, however, deals with a lot of mature issues and I still think it should have a higher rating that "T+." Still, another stellar book by Basri and Marz. Very entertaining read. I don't know whether to hate Voodoo or love her, but either way, I'm having a lot of fun figuring it out. Read Full Review

    Im really surprised by how much Im enjoying this series. I wasnt too keen on most of the horror titles post reboot, but decided to give the new books a chance. So far, Voodoo and I, Vampire rank up there as some of the best horror fiction Ive ever readand theres only been two issues of each! Read Full Review

    While part of me feels like I shouldn't be enjoying this book, it's definitely a hell of a lot of fun and could be one of the big foundation books for an upcoming event with what's being hinted at here. And that potential definitely makes it all the more worthwhile in reading. Read Full Review

    I had absolutely no expectations for this book in the beginning, and that makes its success all the more rewarding. Read Full Review

    A lot of mysteries at work in this espionage-thriller, as well as solid writing, character work, and art. Not sure if it'll rise up to the top of the pops in DC's 52, but a strong middleweight nonetheless. Read Full Review

    If I had any gripes its that the issue was over too quickly. But I think its similar to the Grifter title where I actually dont want the issue to end. We also get a nice little tease at the end of another well-established DCU character who will encounter Voodoo next issue. I cant wait to see it! Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Blake Petit Nov 1, 2011

    I'll just admit it. There's some cheesecake in this book, but it isn't all cheesecake, and considering the outcry we've seen over Starfire and Catwoman, this book is turning out to look pretty tame on that respect. Maybe that, plus the very solid story Marz is giving us, will help it find an audience in the New 52. Read Full Review

    I liked this issue. I mean it didn't blow me away or anything, but it was a good, fast, solid read, and to be honest with you, that's the most I could expect from any comic that has the DC logo adorning it's cover. We have ourselves a super powered foe for Voodoo to face going forward(Black Jack) and a Kyle Rayner appearance coming up. This was probably one of the best DC books I've read all October, although that's not exactly saying much... Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 27, 2011

    A big deal was made out of "Voodoo" #1 being set in a strip club, but Marz and Basri have moved the action to hotel rooms and abandoned buildings here, so hopefully it will get some attention. Sure, the early pages involve an extended afterglow scene, but I appreciate that we're getting the same amount of coverage (or should that be uncoverage?) on both male and female characters; it feels like something you'd see in an episode of "NYPD Blue," not something seedy. As a thriller, "Voodoo" is hitting its marks, and I'll definitely take a look at the third issue. If nothing else, the promise of a much bigger superhero presence will be interesting to see how Marz and Basri handle the collision of genres. But so far, so good. Read Full Review
