    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 3, 2014

    This was a surprisingly good issue. I really didn't expect anything other than a half-baked attempt at capturing the gimmick from the show. Maybe that's how it will come off to some, but being that I didn't follow the show I found this issue to be well-plotted and entertaining. If like me the show wasn't for you, but you love action and drama then you should definitely check this issue out. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Apr 23, 2014

    Overall, however, this is a great start to a miniseries that any 24 fan will enjoy reading. Even if you don't like the show or never watched it, the strong dialogue from Brisson and great artwork by Gaydos are weaving a conspiracy thriller that any lover of great stories has a decent chance of enjoying. You should definitely pick this one up. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Apr 27, 2014

    If you haven't watched the series before, you might want to get the DVDs first. This book will make more sense after you watch them, but it's not required! It's just so worth your time! Read Full Review

    Either way, there is nothing demonstrable in the first issue to lead me to that conclusion yet. Im sure the pacing is to help this move along to 6 issues, but for right now, the first issue has set the stage. Hopefully something good happens in issue 2 to keep the story interesting.

    Fans of the show will love24: Underground and that's exactly who they're going after. While I enjoyed this book, I won't be watching the show or clamoring for any more24 comic titles. This is an enjoyable enough as its own thing,but if you've watched the show then you'll probably like this more than I did. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Apr 22, 2014

    As much as I love the series, this is 24 by-the-numbers, and simply doesn't feature anything remotely exciting or creative. Maybe things will pick up once the series gets moving, but after such an instantly forgettable beginning, I'm almost certain that I'm not going to be around to find out. Read Full Review
