    When I reached the last page of the issue, I wasn't aware that it was the last page and when the story didn't continue I was certainly disappointed. However, this can only mean good things for the comic and I can't recommend it enough to anyone who likes sci-fi, team books, madness or just plain fun. Read Full Review

    Intrepids is a wonderful balance of classic pulpy goodness and great character construction. I plan on spending a lot more time with these characters in the future. Read Full Review

    This was a strong first issue for a promising new series. It isn't the greatest comic I've ever read, but I'm going to keep getting the series based on this and I think it's worth picking up if you're interested in slightly whacky super-powered kids who battle mad scientists and their robo-bear henchmen. The throwback-like art is a big plus! Read Full Review

    "The Intrepids" might not be a perfect comic but it's got the making to be one of your favourites. Pulpy spy-fu action that feels timeless will suck you in and the Death Baboon Squad at the end will solidify your interest. This comic will delight with the sort of ideas meant to melt your smiling face, but it will also break your heart as it descends into a superspy crucible of personal drama and emotion. This is a sheer delight full of deep characterization, explosive action, and all the kinds of things only comics do best. Read Full Review

    I assume the intrepid are supposed to be teens, but they look like adults, especially in the main narrator's case. She looks like she should be parked at the end of a seedy bar, chain smoking cigarettes and asking rummies if they'd like to buy her a drink. (Perhaps I've been reading too much noir.) But a fairly breezy read, with an intriguing set up. Read Full Review

    Overall, The Intrepids wasn't as good as I thought it would be. While it's far from the worst I've read, it needs a little more variation in the plot and a little less variation in the artwork. It does have potential, though, and it is only the first issue, so I'm remaining hopeful for future releases. Read Full Review
