    Overall, John Byrne has something really special with Triple Helix. I think as the series continues it will continue to get stronger and stronger. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Oct 8, 2013

    Triple Helix but like it's sibling series Trio are a kind of throwback style reminiscent of Byrne's older works from the 80′s. For fans of Byrne's work or just that period of comics, this can really satisfy that hunger but many new readers might not “get it” or find some of the themes to fell simple or dated. It's not really a bad thing, there are plenty of younger kids that could read this and get enjoyment out of it. Characters might seem somewhat stereotypical but there are also some adult themes and small twists to still keep the reader interested. I would urge people who are either fans of comic nostalgia or if you are new to comics and find the mess of continuity at the Big 2 to be overwhelming then give this a try and if you like it then go find the Trio trade because Byrne really is one of the creators you should know.

    It's really hard to pinpoint any glaring faults with this comic. Certainly it's not perfect, but it hits all the necessary points perfectly: good conflict, strong characters, closes the story while leaving an open end for the next installment. Additionally, it leaves some questions purposefully unanswered in order to keep the readers' attention and invite them into the next issue. While there is certainly room for improvement, Triple Helix has a lot of potential, and if you're looking for a new superhero series to sink your teeth into, Triple Helix is a great choice.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 11, 2013

    Sure, some of Byrne's heroes' powers are just downright goofy and others seem like rejects from other stories, but for every headscratcher, Byrne does find a couple that are solidly executed and inviting. As for "Triple Helix" #1, it's a John Byrne comic with mildly entertaining concept, decent art and characters that are more analogous than original. It's a fun, entertaining read, but steers clear of anything groundbreaking. Read Full Review

    But you know what " John Byrne can still whip up some tasty, salty corn chips, and occasionally they make a nice side dish to that healthy and delicious sandwich you should probably be eating for lunch. A little crunch, a little texture, a little Byrne's Triple Helix. Why not? Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Oct 9, 2013

    All in all, I don't know where I stand since the characters seem to be repeats from the past. I liked the old school style, but I know if enough invention was done to really outshine the new comics or old classic characters. I did read that the covers of this 4 issue series will turn into a giant cover of all the characters. I thought that was pretty cool, and really makes for great publicity. If you dig John Byrne then pick this up along with the other three to make the poster. Otherwise; stick with some classics. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Oct 16, 2013

    If you've been reading Trio or Next Men, Triple Helix may make total sense to you. If you're a huge fan of classic comics and dislike the dark, realistic tone of today's industry, you might also enjoy Triple Helix. It's possible that the title could sharpen into something enjoyable, but right now Triple Helix feels too dated for most readers to get totally immersed in. Read Full Review
