    I Love Trouble has unlimited potential to be the next big thing. If you don't read comics, try to read this one. Symon's writing style has a TV flair to it, so it's easy to just dive in and enjoy. It's a crisp beginning for Symons and company and they've got me in for the long haul. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Dec 7, 2012

    Very promising. The art is the big selling point, but it's also fun to have a comic with a useful female protagonist (even if she is kinda sexed up for a mostly male audience). Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 5, 2012

    For a first issue, this comic does exactly what it's supposed to. We are introduced to a new character, find out who they are, where they come from and what they can do. We also discover the predicament she's in that will establish the direction of the series. All of this is accomplished with just the right pacing and the art style helps give the book a distinct feel. Being that this is the first issue for a new series, it's hard to determine where the title may go but with a bit of a cliffhanger, there is plenty here to grab your curiosity in order to make you want to come back next issue.

    Comics Crux - Jessica Tarnate May 12, 2012

    I Love Trouble has loads of potential. Its a fun storyit imagines someone with supernatural powers like Nightcrawler, using his powers for selfish and criminal reasons. I Love Trouble #1 offers a cool plot and appealing idea in this debut issue, but with a weak main character, I only halfheartedly want to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Dec 7, 2012

    In interviews with Symons, he has said that Stephenson envisioned this as the start of a shared universe of real life people dealing with being granted super powers in a more realistic setting. If anyone call pull that off, it is Stephenson, and a series of loosely connected minis could be a fun way to put it together. Despite the art issues, this series has a lot of potential, and could potentially build to something really special and unprecedented at Image. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Dec 5, 2012

    It’s not a bad comic, but it’s really rough. It’s one of the roughest Image series I’ve read in a long time; so much so that I forgot that it was Image. I’m curious to read the second issue, but if there isn’t some improvement in the pacing at the very least then I doubt I’ll make it much further. I’m sure that some will really enjoy this book, but for me it was really hard to ignore the blatant details missing to the overall story and showed that the writer was more in love with the concept than the plot.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Dec 5, 2012

    Now, if the book has a high point, it's the art. Not the whole time, though. Some pages are choppy and poorly structured, but when Mark Robinson draws a great page he really draws a great page.The gutters feel to big most of the time and the art seems too small, but what we do get is mostly easy on the eyes. The origin scene looks especially fantastic. Of course, with all the great Image titles out there, a few pretty pages aren't enough to justify a monthly buy. I Love Trouble needs to step up it's game. Read Full Review

    First Comics News - Matthew Szewczyk Dec 8, 2012

    If all this sounds rather familiar then you probably have seen the movie Jumper which this comic pretty much takes from wholesale, with the exemption of making the main character a female. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Max M. Dec 6, 2012

    I'll stick with this comic until issue 2, because no comic should be completely given up on in its first 20+ pages and hopefully issue 2 will add a few key moments and reveals to save it from the cookie cutter story is currently is. The way I Love Trouble started though makes it very hard for me to recommend to any one else. Buyer Beware. Read Full Review
