    Comics Bulletin - Dylan B. Tano Apr 13, 2012

    I fell in love with Danger Club #1 from the very first page. It looks like something torn from the pages of days gone past. Landry Walker doesn't prance around in this opening issue one bit. He dives right in, giving you an introduction to a world that feels part Teen Titans and part Watchmen as the action unfolds on the pages, which has been sharply drawn by Eric Jones. Sure the creative team borrow some ideas, but instead of it being a distraction, it comes across as intentional. They're just wanting to have fun with the material and it really shines through.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 5, 2012

    "Danger Club" is certain to be heralded as a quirky blend of "Watchmen," "Young Justice," "Terror Titans" (yeah, "Terror Titans") and so many other comic stories. Unlike a simple blend or swipe of any of those other concepts, "Danger Club" just feels fresh and exciting. This series seems to be a collection of preconceived notions and traditional comic plots all mixed together for the sole purpose of being broken down and discarded in favor of something new, fun, and exciting. Given the recent track record of new Image titles, you really should give this a look-see. This just might be the book that scratches your comics itch. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Keith Callbeck Apr 3, 2012

    In a string of remarkable debut issues from Image, Danger Club is another unique and engaging work from a company that has been discovering the talent like no one since 90s Vertigo. Put this one on the shelf next to Morning Glories, it has the goods. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Blake Petit Apr 6, 2012

    There have been a lot of high-profile launches from Image lately, and a lot of them have been really good comics. But dont let this one get lost in the shuffle. This is the best first issue Ive read from Image since Morning Glories. If youre looking for a different take on superheroes, something that can take you by surprise and gets you ready to come back, this is the book you should be reading. Read Full Review

    Comic Addicts - Akshay Dhar Apr 11, 2012

    Overall, one of the most entertaining books I've read in the past couple of months and one of my favourites of the recent waves of new series' that Image has been launching. If enough fans get a chance to try it out, this will definitely be one hell of a feather in Images cap! GO READ IT! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Dan Horn Apr 4, 2012

    Danger Club #1 presents an entertaining premise and interesting characters, augmented by incredibly dynamic artwork. It does a wonderful job of seeding its concepts subtly without laboring through unnecessary exposition, and it impressively wraps up its first chapter--or prologue, perhaps--while leaving its readers desperately wanting more. To be fair, some of Apollo's diatribes are awfully trite, and his exchanges with Kid Vigilante leave something wholly original to be desired, but these are minor discrepancies and the scripting overall is commendably solid. I'm definitely hooked on yet another Image series. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Apr 22, 2012

    It's hard to see what will come after this issue. Will the past event that keep being foreshadowed to us by the character be fully explored along with the characters powers and personalities? This is still a powerful first issue in that it has the reader asking a ton of questions and intrigued enough with the with the 'Why?' to buy the next issue, and that's what a first issue should do " even if it also has a bunch of confusion in it's wake.

    Multiversity Comics - Gilbert Short Apr 5, 2012

    I try to pick up every single one of the new Image books as they come out, as Image has become the best place to explore new properties and ideas, but this book is definitely one of the best books I've read in recent memory. If you like angsty kids who are in over their heads, and also like to see kid bash in others heads in, you'd be doing yourself a favor in picking this book up. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Apr 6, 2012

    Teen Titans meets Kick-Ass as Image does it again with a new & exciting comic book debut. Were introduced to the lead characters called Kid Vigilante, Yoshimi, The Fearless, The Magician & the egotistical Apollo. Written by Landry Q. Walker & illustrated by Eric Jones, whos illustrations are unfamiliar to me, but I was totally impressed nonetheless. Pick this one up (if you can, Image #1s tend to vanish quickly off the shelves lately), you wont regret it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 4, 2012

    Either this story is really obvious or it’s got me completely fooled. If I am a fool, it’s got a lot of work to show me that I am. I’m sure this will be the next sell out title from Image and that it’ll be a critical darling, but I’m telling you right now that it’s just okay; decent story with pretty art that’s above average when compared to other superhero books, but that’s about it.

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Apr 6, 2012

    As violent as it is, it doesn't quite feel as mean as something like some of Millar's work. There's still a friendliness here, but little story. As a first issue, this seems to be an aggressive setting of tone and premise. If future installments can flesh out the characters and story more, and push beyond the influences, this might turn out to be a series to keep an eye on. But on its own merits, I have to recommend this first issue with some degree of reservation. It looks damn good, but feels lacking as a chunk of story, like the climax to a run that doesn't exist.

    Major Spoilers - Zach Woolf Apr 12, 2012

    I had no real expectations going into Danger Club, but after seeing the faux cover on the inside I thought I was in for a real treat. After all was said and done though the story left me high and dry. The saving grace in the issue was definitely Eric Jones's art and is a big factor in my decision to pick up next month's issue. I think there is potential for this series for good story telling, but as for this I'm going to have to give it 2.5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review
