Abbey Chase is renowned across the globe as a brilliant young archeologist and (a bit less renowned) as a member of the super-secret spy organization known as Danger. But what set of circumstances lead Abbey to become who she is-who trained and shaped her into the remarkable person she is? Now, for the first time ever, Danger Girl readers will find out the answer to these questions and more... in Danger Girl: Renegade!

    Hartnell is probably the only person familiar enough with DANGER GIRL to write this 'origin story.'  It promises to be a wonderful jumping on point for new readers.  As the creator of the character and series, he knows the nuances of character and dialogue for ABBEY CHASE as no other writer does, and this is a great chance for new readers to come to the series.  For long time fans of the series, it is a great chance to see the creator of the series really open up about one of the most popular characters in the series.

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Sep 1, 2015

    Danger Girl: Renegade #1 is a very fun, action-packed adventure with a compelling protagonist. The book has everything you could want from character development, a fun plot, good artwork, excellent action sequences, an interesting villain, and a rich and vibrant world. I definitely recommend Danger Girl: Renegade #1, especially if you love action-adventure in the vein of Indiana Jones. You can't go wrong. Read Full Review

    Danger Girl: Renegade #1 is going to be a comic book that right from the onset is going to attract a specific type of audience member. But whether you've been around from the start, or if this is your first foray with Abbey Chase, the creative team hit it out of the park with this issue. It's a solid start point for a mini-series that seems to be bound for fun as this comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Sep 1, 2015

    There are no real answers here either, but they are ready to be explored, or so it would seem. The setup to revealing Abbey's past is handled well here as there are no immediate revelations, but rather true to the life of a spy, her secrets have secrets, and the introduction to her past in this issue is thus handled well, giving a glimpse, albeit a short one, into her past and how she is tied to the others. The only drawback one could identify from this series is that the other members of the Danger Girl team are missing, though that doesn't seem to be something that will continue through the series. At the moment this is a fun introduction to a question that fans of the series have always had and it will be interesting to see what the creators have in store for the remainder of the series.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 2, 2015

    Again, the story is nothing that original. You can see the influences and frankly if you've watched a lot of movies this may even feel really familiar and that's okay, because it works. It actually works for this world. Somehow, moving away from the James Bond formula, really works. Maybe they've just tapped that well too many times or maybe this was the more natural fit for the universe all this time. Either way, I was very happy with this first issue of Danger Girl: Renegade and I have a feeling the rest of the mini-series may actually follow suit. At least that's what I'm hoping.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 1, 2015

    Ultimately this is a good first issue, but it doesn't do enough to make the issue feel worth the full asking price. The art is nice, the premise strong, but by issues end you'll be wondering where the hook is and wishing it didn't land on issue #2. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Sep 2, 2015

    For the first issue of a long running series, I quite enjoyed the book. Sure, its not the most serious book out there and that can be a good thing, especially as the book is showing you can have a "fun" book without moving away from your core characters or character. This being IDW, there are a ton of variant covers, my personal favourite being the BuyMeToys Edition, with it's pulpy approach. If you are looking for a fun light comic that will entertain, then you could do worse than picking up this book. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Russell Troxel Sep 5, 2015

    Danger Girl: Renegade #1 knows what it is; it doesn't aim too high and hits its mark squarely. Readers looking for some quality action and comic babes know where to go. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Sep 5, 2015

    'Danger Girl: Renegade' doesn't reinvent the adventure genre but does honor it with an exciting premise and engaging characters. It's familiar territory, a female version of 'Indiana Jones,' but so well executed and entertaining that it deserves to be read and enjoyed by all. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Sep 2, 2015

    Danger girl is a fun read, filled with action. The script has a fast pace that gives you the feel that this character is on the run from both her past and her true identity. Danger Girl Renegade promises to tell us more about this protagonist and it will be great to see what makes her a spy unlike any other we have seen already. Read Full Review

    Needless Essentials Online - Stan Ford Sep 2, 2015

    Danger Girl Renegade isn't a bad comic, but it's not a particularly good one. I'm not certain what the story actually is yet, except that it supposedly has something to do with Abby searching for her father. Unfortunately, that is implied only by the story starting with a flashback, and by nothing actually stated by Abby in the present day. I worried that the comic would be giving fans of Danger Girl just what they wanted instead of trying to draw in new readers. In today's expanding comic book market with more and more female readers, this comic could have done so much more to have a broader appeal, but it completely fell short in that regard.

    Word Of The Nerd - Zac Kandell Sep 3, 2015

    The best thing a #1 issue can do is make you want to read more, and this book accomplishes that. I'm looking forward to the next issue, and if you don't want to wait, there's already more out there. I will definitely be looking for it. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jack Johnston Sep 1, 2015

    Danger Girl#1 may be the worst first issue I have seen, spending most of it's time on boring action sequences and leaving meaningful character introductions or plot set up as an after thought. I, for one, am not looking forward to any future releases of this series and suggestyou to maybe give it a miss if you don't have to get it. Read Full Review
