    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Daniel Pearson Jun 4, 2015

    The action and dialogue are in perfect keeping with the serial's that originally spawned these heroes, with slightly hammy character interaction and an over tendency to explain what they are doing, this is pure pulp action and adventure for a modern audience. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - stephsmedia May 21, 2015

    This series from Dynamite Entertainment is dark, gritty and told with a vocabulary not seen often in action comics. It's a great pick for the more linguistically incline readers. it has all thee makings of an action-mystery comic with lots of room to grow. The team that surrounds Benson seem to be the tops of their fields and I hope they get their time in the spotlight in future issues. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Jun 4, 2015

    Justice Inc. The Avenger #1 is a fun and thrilling ride back to the past where Richard Benson and his Justice Inc. take on odd, almost paranormal cases. Freire captured the time period of the piece and does a good job with facial emotions. Waid's writing is really the stand out in the issue. It is top notch. From beautiful prose to playful humor, he weaves them together seamlessly. If you are looking for some old school detective fun. Go and pick up Justice Inc. The Avenger #1. Read Full Review
