    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Dec 18, 2012

    With all these talented people working together, the real winner is the reader, because Bellaire, Walsh, and Brisson's chemistry is magical. One of the characters in this issue talks about how Reconnect "want[s] us to stay in the dark". The same is true of what Comeback wants of its readers. But while Reconnect would like this for presumably nefarious reasons, Brisson and company simply want to tell the best story they can. Thus far, they're succeeding. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Dec 19, 2012

    This issue looks good, too, thanks to Michael Walsh and Jordie Bellaire. Walsh is great storyteller, and it shows in his character work. Expressions and reactions mean a lot in this comic, and Walsh makes sure they carry the proper weight. At times, it can be a bit difficult to tell the characters apart, which is a bit of a problem, especially when we are talking about multiple versions of characters. The colors look amazing, because Bellaire is a wizard of some sort, traveled from time and space to come here and bestow glorious color work on our comic books. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Dec 19, 2012

    I find this series to be really incredible actually. I said in my first review that I’m not a stickler for time travel “rules” and just find interesting stories wrapped around them to be fun and entertaining. I love the layer of mystery that continues to unraveling in this story and I’m looking forward to finishing the series when it wraps. This series is just another example of how amazing of a year Image Comics is having and enriches the Shadowline brand with its high quality storytelling. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Dec 20, 2012

    Overall, this is a slow but solid issue that gradually builds on the mysteries presented in the first one, as well as throws in a few more. And so, while this is a very easy shot to take in regards to a miniseries, it seems that "Comeback" will be a much more satisfying read in trade. Still, this is a masterful work in that it is keeping us so much in the dark " having so much occur in each issue, and yet still managing to tell us so little. Compressed and condensed and utterly bewildering, “Comeback” keeps giving us handfuls of puzzle pieces to fiddle with; and try as we may to put them together, there are bound to be some big surprises down the line.

    Bloody Disgusting - MelissaGrey Dec 26, 2012

    Im hesitant to give too much away, but its definitely an issue worth getting your hands on. Brissons temporal acrobatics are a true delight and youll find yourself itching to give this many layered parfait of a comic a second read sooner rather than later. Read Full Review
