What if the MOST DANGEROUS man on Earth was also the one trying to do the MOST GOOD? The world is real. The people are normal. And then he appears! A man appears with no background, no memory, and no place to call home. But he has powers. Powers that seem resemble those we learned about in Sunday School. Could it be?! Is it possible that this man is much, much more than that? Is it possible that he is our “SAVIOR” in the flesh? And if he is, then why doesn’t he know who he is or how he got his powers? Strip away the spandex and trappings of the traditional comic superhero and ask yourself a simple question: “How would I react if GOD suddenly appeared in front of me, but everything we had been taught about him seems out of whack?” What you would have left, beyond your own doubts, is the presence of a man who has to deal with the fact that his appearance in the world is seen as both a blessing and a curse.

    Everything just came together for this first issue. We get bits and pieces but nothing is forgotten. Savior has some great art and with some great plot building. I think Savior is here to stay and can't wait for you guys to pick it up this week. Read Full Review

    The art is pretty great. Did I mention that this is a gorgeous book?There are two things that really sell this story, despite its aforementioned faults (which aren't damning by any means). The first is clearly the art, which should be easily discernible the second you open the book. The second part is that this is a story McFarlane and Holguin appear to be craftingcarefully, which is something I can appreciate. The tentative first steps almost make the issue all the more bold. Bynot quite giving you enough to grab onto, your faced with the same situation as Cassandra in the story, entering this unknown world with this unknown character and experiencing things as she does. So with that, I urge you to give this title a try, and enter the unknown, too. Read Full Review

    "Savior" #1 provides great art, great characterization and a unique enough twist on the millennia-old notion of a character who can seemingly perform miracles. The synergy between the writers and the artist is not only based on their collaboration but also on allowing one part of the team to let loose when appropriate, which all involved do confidently.

    Clayton Crain absolutely nails the ending of Savior #1 with a scene that made me feel like I was there. It's a powerful finale that shows just how the savior comes to be, while at the same time leaves unanswered questions in the minds of the reader. Savior left me guessing and it's supposed to. What do you believe? Where is your faith? McFarlane and Holguin look to explore these themes within the pages of Savior and so far they're making a believer out out of me. Read Full Review
