    Overall, the comic got me much more enthused about the series within. There's a nice mix of look and tone within the comic, and it seems to do the job it's intended to do, get someone interested in what's coming. Overall, if you're interested in getting an idea of what to expect for the six series within, or the Marvel U as a whole, this is one you'll want to pick up when you're at the comic shop this week.

    Though the title is a mouthful and the climax of "Secret Wars" has been delayed, "All New All Different Marvel Point One" #1 is worthwhile for readers looking to dig in to the new Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Overall, not a bad product, and there should be something in here for everyone even if you're someone who won't buy everything. Oh, and Marvel, please keep using this format of book to get us into new titles. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Robert Reed Oct 6, 2015

    All-New All-Different Marvel Point One #1 is able to accomplish what many of these Point One issues have lacked. This feels like a singular piece of entertainment, and the issue is stronger for it. While the hefty price tag is sure to scare away some readers,All-New All-Different Marvel Point One #1 is a surprisingly entertaining read, featuring the talents of many artists and writers. A stronger female presence would have been appreciated in this debut, but the contents of the issue show that the Marvel Universe is still going to be an exciting place for new and old readers alike.

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Oct 6, 2015

    Point One books are always interesting, and this new one-shot collection is no exception. Despite a few of the stories not fully landing, the strong narrative through line coupled with some restrained yet entertaining looks at Marvel's next slew of debuts make All-New All-Different Marvel Point One feel like a great run of trailers right before the next new blockbuster. It has long been said that Marvel has the deepest bench of talent in superhero comic books, and this new collection is a very strong argument for that sentiment. Marvel has a cadre of talented writers at their disposal and twice as many artistic talents waiting in the wings and this Point One is a great platform for them to show exactly what they can do, as well as what we can expect from their new books on the horizon. All-New All-Different Marvel Point One may not be essential reading, but it is all kinds of fun all the same. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Tom Bacon Oct 7, 2015

    All in all, a POINT ONE issue is always well worth picking up. A POINT ONE issue gave the first hint of the Phoenix Force's rampage; another set up "Original Sin". But this time, ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT MARVEL POINT ONE feels less like an hype-bursting launch book, and more like an attempt to sell us on the books Marvel are least confident of. If you have any lingering indecision over which books to follow, then these teasers will help. Otherwise, it's unlikely to matter overmuch. Read Full Review

    The comic is just an introduction for Contest of Champions. Even though it's cool.

    The Daredevil preview was impressive. The Inhumans previews gave off a good snapshot of what the series will probably be about. Everything else was forgettable.

    A crummy commercial. They forgot to include "Be sure to drink your Ovaltine."

    CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS: This is the main story tying these previews together and it's the worst of them all. Don't insult my intelligence by suggesting that this is a search for the best contestants in this bullshit video game adaptation. For crying out loud, they look in on SHIELD! I think it's safe to say we didn't need to waste consideration on these nobodies. Marvel fans are shouting dozens of better suggestions than what old-man Hulk and Collector are scraping their brains to come up with. Just call this an anthology and spare us from this charade. -- CARNAGE -- Utterly pointless. -- ROCKET RACCOON & GROOT-- This one was actually funny and enjoyable. -- AGENTS OF SHIELD: This only exists because of the SHIELD TV show, no one wants to read this garbage. It was a struggle just to figure out what was going on for the first half of this installment. -- ALL-NEW INHUMANS: What a terrible airline. This was actually good for the pages that it was allotted. But it's Inhumans, so it's probably just another new character that we'll never care about and will fade into obscurity, never to be heard from again. -- DAREDEVIL: I like that this new character is an undocumented Chinese immigrant, something that has been missing from Marvel. He keeps referring to himself as illegal, which could just be him being hard on himself, but at least call him undocumented in the captions. -- OVERALL: The only reason that I picked this up is for the Daredevil prelude. If you are not a collector, just read whatever prelude you are interested in while in your LCBS and save your money. The LCBS is not a library, but we can't keep encouraging Marvel to make these stupid things, they just want an easy buck. It's like paying extra at the theatre to watch the trailers. $5.99!? That's insulting. I don't care what the page count is, glorified commercials like this should be free or $2.99 at the most to cover original content expenses.
