    Fans of Liefeld are going to find a lot to like in this book, and even some detractors are sure to find a story that is thick and engaging. Kirkman and Liefeld play off each other's strengths well enough to conceal any perceived weaknesses. I didn't expect to like this book when I picked it up, but I'm certainly glad I did nab it. It's an entertaining read that is refreshing in its self-indulgence. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Brian Russell Aug 7, 2011

    Overall I thought this was a really great start for the series, even if the art wasn't my thing. The action was certainly there, and Kirkman's writing had a nice pace to it. I do wish it didn't jump around as much as it did, but this comic definitely comes with a recommendation for those who like time travel arcs, or maybe those that wish they could team up with their younger selves. Think of a time traveling Lethal Weapon, but instead of Riggs and Murtough, it's Riggs and Riggs. If that sounds interesting (and how could it not?), you should definitely grab this one.

    I'm curious what sort of dynamic Bo and Bo will end up having, as well as whether one will start using a different name. It's tough to get a sense for the tone we can expect from here on out, but if it truly is a buddy action flick like Kirkman says, then it'll probably be a healthy dose of action and comedy.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Aug 4, 2011

    Not a whole lot to say about this one. It seems like we've got a very solid time-travel concept coupled with a writer who has told us some very entertaining stories in the past. Even if this first issue didn't blow my socks off, I'm certainly going to give this another chance. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jamil Scalese Aug 2, 2011

    The potential of the idea and the creators' track record save this title from being a complete letdown. I am eager to find out if The Infinite will find the necessary depth -- both in Kirkman's plot and Liefeld's pencils. Read Full Review

    This book may honestly be one of the worst comics I have read this year and certainly the worst I have read since Fallen Sun, the Sentry farewell book from last year. It is a bitterly disappointing read and I dont encourage you to read it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 7, 2011

    There is going to be people out there that enjoy this comic hailing it as a "B-Movie" of comics and they're wrong. In fact they're stupid if they think that. This comic is just bad and the story is so transparent that I'm going to spoil it for you. The good guys are wrong and the bad guys are right and more than likely Imperius is future, future Bo because this whole storyline reeks of recycled X-Force storylines. I wish I could say one positive thing about this project that has so many excited, but all I can muster is at least I don't have to read it ever again. Read Full Review
